From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
The latest of a quartet of luxe lodges set up by Taj hotels and safari experts &Beyond in the game parks of Madhya Pradesh, Banjaar Tola is also the most authentic-looking and most beautifully sited, along the banks of the forested Banjaar River, adjoining Kanha National Park—one of the best places in India to spot tigers. Eighteen large guest huts with jaunty green tent roofs are laid out in two settings, East and West, both with their own simply furnished bar, terraced lounge and dining room, and pool. Pampering by dedicated butlers (who bring you tea in bed, escort you by flashlight to and from dinner) is complemented by expert guides who immerse you deeply into the jungle. The guest huts include a tub with a jungle view and a walk-in shower; wall coverings are of woven palm leaf; the tables are bleached tree trunks; and distinctive metal sculptures are inspired by the art of the local Bastar people. A tasty light Indian fusion cuisine is provisioned by the lodge's organic garden and served on the communal terrace or on your own private one. The view of the river might reveal local women beating their wash on the rocks while their children splash in the water or, possibly, a glimpse of the leopard that has been sighted perched high in a tree on the far shore.—2010 Hot List

Which room to book: For the most expansive views, Nos. 2, 4, 7, or 9 in the East section, or No. 3 in the West.
