The retreat is really treat for visitors who arrive in Shoja. Mr Mohan is so courteous to take care of guests. The rooms are made of wood and are very nice to live in but the insulation is not there, if your next door guest is talking you can hear it in your room, Banjara will have to take care...

Out stay at the place was just great. Very polite staff and the place is just wonderful. Amazing views and hikes. You can just walk for a few minutes and you're in the forest. We've met also the owners - a great couple.

Recently (May 2016), I stayed with my family here for 3 nights. I have stayed in Banjara Sangla and Banjara Thanedar before. I felt this property rates a tad lower than these two. Getting to the resort was the easy part as the climb down the stairs was easy. Getting back up to the road was the challenge. That itself...
