Betwa Retreat

Hotel in Orchha

MP Tourism's main Orchha property is a pretty good choice. Accommodation and a good pool are set amid well-kept gardens with views to the river and the chhatris (cenotaphs). The 'cottages' are large safari-style tents with solid floors and half-walls, plus bathrooms, good beds, air-con and minibars. Rooms, in vaguely traditional style, are similarly comfy and have tea/coffee equipment.

A bar, the good Bundela Restaurant, and bicycles (₹200 per day) complete the package. Wi-fi reaches the lobby and restaurant only.
