As fully equipped jungle resort, Motel Chandan has evolved with Kanha and its tourism. A small number of tourists visited the preserve during the seventies. They found succor at Chandan Motel as the resort is named. This was the first hotel accommodation venture at the Kanha National Park.
Kissu Chacha had a vision that nurtured tiger tourism & the tourists in times whence no private lodges offered lodging. (Stay was possible at the forest rest house with prior bookings). The vision turned into a reality. The budget property is a full fledged resort, well equipped for cozy accommodation and dining.
It is not that cheap any more but offers luxury and comfort like all good hotels in Kanha National Park. The economical rates are suitable for tiger safari to this resort.The sons look after the property. They have upgraded the lodge with modern amenities and lots of comfort features. The affordability remains and suits backpackers, budget travelers and families on economy travel.
A very homely place. Very beautiful with gardens. Makes mornings for photographers very easy as extremely close to the gate. Good food and clean rooms and washrooms. Good service and an overall great experience. Definitely a place to revisit.Rhea Sharan -

Motel Chandan is THE BEST HOTEL in Kanha, without any doubts! Beautiful garden, comfy rooms, very close to the entrance gate and busstop. But the most important thing is the staff. They are just great. Dinesh (one owner) took so good care of me and looked for other travellers to share a Jeep with to reduce the costs. And they want you to see tigers just as badly as you want and are just as disappointed as you when you don't see one.
