Kanha Earth Lodge, eco luxe resort, is tucked away in a small tribal hamlet bordering Kanha’s buffer zone, and built in less than 5% of the 16 acres of natural forest that surrounds it. The lodge and its furniture is constructed and designed using local waste wood and recycled wood; a true reflection of impeccable standards in green architecture.
We offer twelve, luxury bungalows with spacious verandas that promise unhindered, stunning views.
Inspired by traditional Gond architecture, the cottages have been meticulously designed using locally available materials such as mud plaster, stone, terracotta tiles, rough-hewn timber beams. The furniture has been delicately crafted using waste and recycled wood, thereby blending seamlessly with the natural forest setting.
An oasis of relaxation, our Infinity pool is set between Mahua trees of a fringe forests. Let the stress melt away, as you unwind under the alluring, blue skies, dotted with candy floss clouds, forming a canopy over the verdant forest cover.
