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

Room Tip: Stay at Tents.....nice feeling!

For an MP government run tourist hotel, it is definitely a very good option while at Amarkantak...possibly it is the only decent option at Amarkantak. Set amidst a large area, this hotel is about 5 minutes walking distance from the main Narmada temple at Amarkantak which is a very big positive. You could walk down in the evenings for the aarti in the temple after a day of sightseeing, etc...without having to worry about the commute back to the hotel.
You have options of rooms or tents. Stayed in the rooms and found them to be quite spacious. They sure have seen better days with signs of wear and tear very evident but if you are not a fussy traveler, you will really not mind. There is a separate living room with a sofa and a bedroom though not very large but will definitely ensure a comfortable stay. The bedroom has a heater which is quite essential as it does become quite cold at night and chilly during winter.

The restaurant in the hotel serves vegetarian fare and we found it to be quite good.

The staff is generally helpful and helped in hiring taxi/jeeps for the excursion, drop to Pendra Road Railway station, the nearest railhead. In general too I found MP Tourism officials to be quite professional when interacting with them to book the hotel and transportation. Mails were always responded promptly.

Make this your abode if visiting Amarkantak.

This place is the best possible accomodation you can find in Amarkantak, first of all it is pretty small village and there are not much options for staying. We stayed in the tents and enjoyed a lot, moreover the chef was also very nice and used to prepare food as per special orders even outside the menu. The place is on a hill and has a very good view on the top also is walking distance from the Main Narmada Mandir (10 Minutes max). Due to constant rains the tents were little damp and we could also spot a few holes, a little bit of maintainence is required.

Room Tip: Stay in Tents only and definatel prebook it as its always full

Visiting Amarkantak was indeed a profound experience. Stay in Holiday Homes added to the beauty.

Amarkantak is a place with pristine glory. The serenity and spirituality of the place can be felt as soon as one reaches the place. The beauty is that unlike many other religious places in India, the serenity of Amarkantak remains undiminished.

Holiday Homes is ideally located at about 1.5 km from the Narmada Udgam. The front desk is courteous and efficient. We were in our rooms within 5 minutes of our showing up at the desk. Room at the upper floor was spacious with a drawing room and a balcony offering great view of the lake and the mountain range beyond. Rooms and bathroom were clean. Linens and towels were clean and fresh. Vegetarian food was tasty though simple. Restaurant staff were courteous and efficient..

Amarkantak has many great places to see. While lot has been written about the other places, I found Mai Ki Bagiya particularly fascinating especially when dusk was approaching. Sitting there, I was once more reminded of the great spiritual history that our country possesses.

View of Narmada Mai from any place in Amarkantak was exhilarating. On one occasion, we saw a group of pilgrims commencing their parikrama. It left a sense of longing in me. I visited a couple of Ashrams there. The experience, as I said, right in the beginning, was profound.

We stayed at Amarkantak for three nights. The combined experience of place and hotel will have an indelible imprint on my mind.

Going to amarkantaq from jabalpur was a good expereince..the roads are excellent and are pleasant to drive with many blind curves and angles..on the way are some excellent natural scenes and one can really enjoy the greenery and long trees without pollution...and then one reaches amarkantaq which are starting points for the satpura and vindyachal range of mountains . it has all the points to be a good hill station but it has not attracted much tourists so far except the religious..
To find a hotel like holiday homes promoted by MP tourism is a pleasant surprise...thanks to MP tourism the hotel route boards are placed suitably so that one can reach the hotel easily. the hotel is typical goverment with big campus and unlike govt . is quite neat and clean..the staff is not very courteous but not rude either...rooms are a big expensive for their price..try the tents (if u r not afraid of reptiles of all types) or else stay in the rooms ..the tents are very attractive .
rooms are typically sarkari...bathrooms are unclean...the restaurent serves breakfast, lunch and dinner...the food is spicy but can be taken as there are no other options...book your rooms before going throuh MP tourism website else there can be disappointments since most of the travellers and govt. officers stay here..overall there is no other option but to choose holiday homes which will serve the purpose atleast for a day or two...in rain there are so many reptiles and insects that it best to avoid or b prepared for some surprises..

Room Tip: upstairs AC room or tent out in the open

Being a government property, meny things they have here is just absolutely right. Spent a night here, and the people managing this place are quaintly efficient. The restaurent requires a lot to be desired though. They didnt even have bread, or, for that matter, most of the things the claimed to serve in the menue. You can have better homestyle food outside in any run down eatery. Stayed in a tent, so my comments are applicable to it, dont know about the rooms

Room Tip: try and grab the tents.
