Pashan Garh in Panna National Park

 

Taj Safaris’ new jungle safari lodge comprises a cluster of stone cottages huddled atop a small hill, with magnificent views over the forest and a large nearby waterhole, which has been host to numerous tiger and resident antelope sightings.

This lodge draws inspiration from the dry-packed stone houses of the Panna region. These houses differ from other Madhya Pradesh styles, with dramatic roofs constructed from massive slabs of irregularly shaped slate. The guest areas celebrate Haveli design, with a spacious central courtyard. The interiors are a contemporary mix of chocolate linens, block-printed black silks, celadon cottons and cotton lace chandeliers. A strong motif throughout the lodge is the motif of the crocodile, which inhabits the nearby Ken River. Although the structures are rough, chunky and stony, the interiors are sleek and sexy.

The lodge features 12 stone cottages, with a central guest area showcasing fabulous leather furniture made in Delhi, with massive black and white photo canvasses of the dramatic Panna landscapes. There are subtle references to the erotic stonework at the nearby temples of Khajuraho.

Surrounded by 190 acres of private jungle wilderness, Pashan Garh draws inspiration from the dry-packed stone houses of north-central India. With breathtaking views over the dense forest, as well as a nearby waterhole, the stone cottages are approached by large flagstones. Inside, dry packed stone walls and airy architecture create the impression of a summer pavilion. Accents of ebony, chocolate and white combine with a dramatic central shower in the bathroom to create a clean, strong texture. A vast stone veranda with a comfortable day bed provides shelter from the heat of the day. Delicious Indian fare, prepared by expert chefs, is discreetly delivered using the unobtrusive butler hatches.
