Madhai Riverside Lodge - Our Story

A dream was born decades ago – an idea to make the most elusive of wilderness encounters one can imagine accessible to those who love the wild. And in 2006, the day finally arrived when this vision finally became a real, tangible fruit of years' worth of labor and love. THAT is how MRL was born!

Founded by Shri Sankatha Prasad Dubey in 2006, Madhai Riverside Lodge boasts of being the first resort in Madhai – a feat that could only have been possible with his unwavering strength, unmoving dedication and unyielding efforts. And what began with a few modest rooms is now one of the most exclusive properties in the region. Located right on the banks on Denwa River, right next to the jetty where every Satpura Safari begins, Madhai Riverside Lodge gives you the best view of Satpura National Park.

The resort itself is designed with muted colors to meld perfectly with the wilderness around. Locally sourced kabelu tiles from Bagra Tawa line the cottage roofs and tastefully placed sit-outs give you a touch of privacy as you bask in the glory of a Satpura sunset. Each room in the property is well-appointed with all the modern amenities and comforts that a true-blue traveller can ask for. Comfortable beds, well-done interiors, air conditioning, power back-up – we offer it all! And the cherry on the cake – each and every room in the property opens up to the most spectacular view of the Denwa River and sprawling wilderness of Satpura Tiger Reserve.

Now THAT makes for a picture-perfect vacation!
