Type of rooms at Tathsatu (a luxury jungle) resort
A) Monarch’s Nape
Monarch nape as the name suggests is the highest category room at Tathastu Resort. It offers a fantastic view of thick bamboo plantation on one side, with decent chance of bird sightings, especially in summer and the front view offers a grand view of the activity lawn and lake.
The highlights are the toilet which is almost as big as bedroom and undoubtedly lavish. The front veranda is a delightful place to sit early morning and late evening and it also offers a great view of our busy reception front. A separate TV rooms, small kitchen and dining area complete this very functional unit.
Away from rest of the resort rooms, this cosily tucked away adobe is the best guest looking for privacy and individual attention.
B) Cave Rooms
Big‘ROCKS’ have always evoked mystical feelings.
Forest rock spots like ‘Dig Dola’ in Kanha, ‘Sheyshaiyya’ in Bandhavgarh, ‘Piyorthadi’ in Pench or ‘Phutakot’ in Ranthambhore , generate image of a tiger or panther lurking in the vicinity. These rocks create a truly wild feel.
To cater to this natural instinct, these are extremely primitive rooms, carved inside a huge created rock. This is surely a first in the region and has all modern comforts. Only for humans with a tiger’s hearts!
C) Tree House
There are already fairy tales! As we remember the illustration, be it a Jack climbing the Bean Stalk, or Cinderella in her Carriage, or the shoe house. Rooms at the luxury jungle Tathastu Resort were planned to have a fairy tale image of the tree house rooms.
“Truly Royal” was the remark of a celebrate guest… and Tathastu resort achieved it. By far the best in the region, it has four sections (see photo with four crests) consisting of a sitting, a bedroom, a toilet and a verandah, all combined into one luxury tent.
What makes these Tents unique is the lawn, bonfire platform, 5000 sq. ft. enclosure that is private to the occupants. Named after Indian freedom fighters, these tents bring out the best in us when it comes to providing a memorable experience.
S-p-a-c-e, privacy, freedom of timing, comfort, cosiness, dedicated staff, customized food, fascinated interior and feeling of ownership. This and a little more, is what our estates are designed to give.
Highly suited for medium to larger group, any group reunions, family get-together and people to wish to holiday without necessarily mixing with others, that is the USP, and this is where one in pamper the most.

The rooms are made of 18inch thick mud walls. The roof 15 to 20 high with Kavelu tiles, which will create a totally new and different experience.
