On the outskirts of Bhopal city, The Jehan Numa Retreat is the latest offering from the Jehan Numa Hotels.Sprung up from the earth as it were, at the edge of a green forest - the Van Vihar National Park - this snug spa and resort has been created in the tradition of a culture and life that is nourished by its relationship with nature. And in turn, it nourishes guests – and revives them, body and soul.A surprising luxury is camouflaged by the native simplicity of a tree-lined estate, and the subtle elegance of Jehan Numa's nawabi tradition is imbued in fine details and caring service. An intimate collection of low-slung cottages are uniquely designed with sloping walls and roofs, borrowing details of tribal and rural art on mud-coloured walls and courtyards. Exquisite colonial and ethnic décor combine with local craft and warm colours of Indian dyes and stone.The focus is on the natural and the organic, a harmonious reconnection of the body, mind and soul with the luxurious gifts of nature. The tranquil silence is broken only by birdsong and animal sounds as guests unwind and replenish themselves under a wide Bhopal sky.

A lush golfing green in a far corner beckons the meditative golfer. The Spa offers a premium experience with a holistic blend of therapeutic and rejuvenating treatments. The kitchen serves wholesome and delicious dishes using many of the organic vegetables and ingredients grown at the Retreat. The forest and the National Park transport visitors to a natural habitat rich in animal and birdlife – visit, walk, listen and watch.The Retreat arranges for visits to the Van Vihar National Park whose outer boundaries nudge and almost flow into the Jehan Numa estate. Visitors to the zoological park can drive, cycle or walk through the natural habitat, where trenches and walls have been built to protect the wealth of animal life – tigers, bears, lions, crocodiles, sambhar and the black buck among others. The Park is a birdwatcher's delight – over two hundred species of birds are to be found here and the Upper Lake adjoining the Park attracts thousands of migratory birds in winter.Dining at the Retreat is characterized by Jehan Numa's reputation for fine food and wine. Classic personalized service continues quietly and efficiently – with a subtle grace that adds serenity to your experience.

Apart from the two enchanting restaurants, guests can help themselves to wholesome and delicious sandwiches and salads from the pantry at any time.In almost every season, dining at Jehan Numa's signature restaurant – Under the Jamun Tree, is a visual & sensual delight. Guests linger here as much for the ambience and the setting, as for the delicious kebabs & curries created by the house kitchen.The Coriander Leaf is a fine dining restaurant with a bar and lounge, a space that allows the light and greens and outdoors to enter and surround you as you enjoy a range of global cuisines.Unwind, connect with yourself and with nature.
