After reading many positive reviews on TripAdvisor, we chose to visit Jungle Retreat. This place totally justifies all the great reviews that it has earned. As soon as we entered, we were given a small presentation by Mr. Mani which included videos of wild animals captured inside the property, some outside the very room that we were about to stay...

Went here with family and found it so apt for a vacation that we ended up extending our stay. Big shout out to Smriti, Pavithra and the staff (including the 'Rajesh'es!!)) That the place has 7 dogs, 7 cats, numerous spotted deer and the occasional wildlife visitor (wild elephant, leopard, sloth bear etc.) makes the stay even more worthwhile. A... More

We, a group of 14 people stayed at jungle retreat for 4 nights. This resort gives you the ultimate jungle experience. We reached the resort in the evening after dark, hence the first night was a bit scary. However, the beauty of the resort unfolded next day at dawn. Extremely serene, clean n quiet place.

Compared to similar jungle stays in this region, this place is quite isolated and deep in the wild. So, its obvious that one would be excited during the drive itself. You would get to sit through a presentation by the owner herself. This presentation would make you more thrilled about your stay because you would be walked through not only... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jungle Retreat is a family-run resort, that offers a range of country-style cottages, that suit different budgets, while catering to a similar mindset. Insulated within 35 Acres of carefully cultivated and nurtured biodiversity, Jungle Retreat is a haven for wildlife and has come a long way since its beginnings in 1996 when it was barren farmland. Being family-run, service is personalised, informal yet professional. Jungle Retreat does not take Corporate bookings or all male groups, so you can be assured of an ambiance that does not remind you of work and appeals even to the single female traveller. Food is laid out in buffet-style. Menus are set twice a day after taking into consideration guest preferences and allergies. Activities like safaris and walks may be customised with the in-house activities in-charge and are organised within the parameters stipulated by the Forest Department and government agencies. Activities are subject to availability and weather conditions. Jungle Retreat has house pets (cats and dogs) that have always been with the family. Having encouraged wildlife on the campus, house-rules are to be adhered to for the safety of our guests. ... more   less
