Welcome To Ratapani Range Retreat
A refuge from the hectic pace of city life.
The property was founded as a herb farm in 1982 by the Late Lt. Col. Lawrence Paul as an abundance of medicinal plants indigenous to this region proved conditions were ideal for herbal plant cultivation. A part of the same land was later developed and afforested to establish a goat farm that housed several hundred animals. The rocky yet densely forested mountain area was a perfect habitat for several generations of goats, until recently, when the same land underwent its third transformation. In its newest incarnation, Anil Paul, son and heir of the Colonel, wanted Ratapani Range Retreat to be an extension of his own home, a haven for those who want to immerse into the pleasures of Nature.
Jungle rides in vintage jeeps and bird-watching go hand-in-hand with life at Ratapani Range Retreat. The Barna Dam, not far from the Home Stay, enables one to share the owner’s passion for boating, fishing and kayaking. “We want you to be a part of it” he says, “while enjoying home-cooked food made with the best of the produce that Raisen district has to offer.”
In addition to the tranquil existence that jungle life offers, Ratapani Range Retreat is situated conveniently near our National cultural heritage sites. The ancient caves of Bhimbetka, the 11th Century Shiv Temple of Bhojpur and the holy Stupa of Sanchi, to name a few, are all a short drive away.
