This charming lodge is located alongside a stream on the edge of a dry deciduous forest of predominantly teak trees.

The spacious standalone suites have been totally rebuilt and the original guest areas have been extensively renovated and enlarged, and a beautiful swimming pool added. Meals are served on a shaded deck beside the pool and overlooking a renowned tiger trail. At sunset, cocktails are served under a huge Banyan tree full of giant flying squirrels.

Baghvan is a five minute drive from the entrance to one of India's richest yet lesser-known parks, Pench. This is a typical Central Indian teak jungle, with hilly terrain and several jungle streams, and it supports a rich variety of wildlife, including the tiger, leopard, wild dog, gaur, sambar, chital and brilliant birdlife. The Park's open habitat lends itself well to wildlife viewing, but is also beautiful in its own right.

Why We Love It

  • The name draws its inspiration from one of India's iconic symbols, the Bengal tiger; bagh means tiger and van means forest.
