I visited Amarkantak for 3 days visit, for a research purpose. I stayed at MP Holiday Homes (enjoyed Rooms as well as Tents). For a government run hotel, it is a very good and well maintained one, and probably the best option in Amarkantak apart from those big ashrams.
Food is good, staff is polite, and rooms are well furnished with ample area for a family. Tents are must stay options there, well furnished and cozy. More amenities and options for guests like play room, bonfire, etc can bring in much needed attraction to the hotel.
If you wish to enjoy nature at its serene beauty, you must visit
