Jehan Numa Retreat
Bhopal

The Jehan Numa Retreat is an essential spa retreat that lies within the outskirts of Bhopal city, tucked away in an evergreen forest.

The sister hotel of Reni Pani Jungle Lodge, Jehan Numa is subtly elegant, wonderfully organic and has a simple ethos. The hotel combines deep wooden materials with a slick modern design and blended with traditional lodge layout. Modern amenities balanced against back-to-basics design make this retreat a unique experience. Mud-caked walls and an ethnic design deliver the simplicity in the individual huts; until you see the interiors designs, one could mistake the complex for a rural village. Comprising of 28 en-suite rooms in 6 residential clusters, each one has spacious bathrooms, a seating area and a private sit out deck, separated by tall standing local plants. All the rooms are equipped with Wi-fi.

This retreat has two sumptuous restaurants offering fine dining. The first offers delicious curries served to guests under the Jamun tree, a romantic setting and ideal for soaking up the atmosphere, aptly named Under the Jamun Tree. The second option, The Coriander Leaf, is a bar and lounge which offers global cuisine in an indoor restaurant setting. The organic ingredients are sourced from the hotel’s extensive kitchen garden giving the menu a fresh taste.

The Spa and Wellness centre is the key attraction for this retreat and is the perfect place for those on a luxury getaway in need of a light pampering. There is also a 20-metre outdoor pool as well as therapy rooms. Other activities on offer at Jehan Numa include cycling, golf, croquet and all-important tree plantation, key to the conservation ethos. It is conveniently located 18 km from Bhopal airport, and 10 km from the railway station.

Jehan Numa has won several awards, including Best Heritage Hotel three times, and is rated by the Telegraph as one of the Top 15 Palace Hotels of the world. Unarguably, an excellent choice for travellers to connect with real India.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
