“A fine Jungle Living Experience”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This property is a nice option of enjoying the stay inside jungle. It is well located inside jungle. The huts are nice and reasonable to offer decent stay. It may not offer luxury but still it is worth enjoying this property. Staff is very nice and cooperative. Food is amazing and offers home-made feeling. Travellors have good options to enjoy this property - play cricket, trekking, swimming pool. It is a good option to enjoy the serenity of jungle and most important it offers a very good option to organize family get together, corporate offsite.

We went to this place 6 times with my team...every time a group size of 30+....Its not a place where you need luxury however everything that you need for a confortable stay is provided...Nice food and great surrounding..Helpful and smiling staff and management will do anything to make sure that you visit again... Approach road need to be taken care of as it requires skilled driver...

The resort is located a bit far from the city,Initially looked a better place as it is away from the hassles of the city and a silent yet beautiful place.Our group of 8 people went there for a 2N / 3D stay, things were going well and we were enjoying our stay but after spending a day we realized that our belongings like money, clothes etc are missing, Initially we didn't paid much attention but the same thing happened again then we came to know that the staff and management are into it.We lost around 5K and several clothes and it all happened whenever we went away and our rooms were properly locked.When we tried to bring this to the notice of management they acted as if it usually happens at this place and were not supportive at all.

I would recommend not to visit this resort at all, as everyone wants to spend a hassle free holiday and these people will make you holiday painful.

Room Tip: Nothing to choose.........

Lansdowne is as beautiful as it can get from this property as this is even further in the mountains from what the town already is. The detour to this resort is not for the faint hearted. Drive is on un-kept roads after reaching the town and I believe would be undrivable during rains. The resort itself is nice as it's completely cutoff from everything. Food was okay and as going to the town for every meal is not an option one can't do anything about it. The place could get loud at weekends as many corporate tour come for vacations and it defeats the purpose of choosing this place. If you are part of a group then this is a nice place otherwise you are better off with some town hotel. But then too the beauty of Lansdowne more than makes up for any trouble one would have.

The resort is located amidst a sparse pine forest. The location is good, and absolutely away from the township.
The approach road is treacherous and is not meant for the faint hearted.
You can enjoy leisurely walks around the gentle slopes in an around the resort. They provide you with Badminton rackets, and volley ball both of which you can play in either of two makeshift courts within the resort premises. There are 2 swimming pools, with chlorinated water. You will have to bear with a lot of pine leaves and twigs at the bottom. It is fun though to play in the pool during the day.
The cottages are spacious, but maintenance is quite poor. The Toilets are not so clean and the carpet is put in place using carton tapes, that too is peeling at quite a few places. Linen are just clean and not of very good quality.
Food is just manageable and quite spicy. You would not want to go back to the resort for the food.
Service is just OK, with the staff overworked due to demands from guests at all odd hours. The reason for this is the fact that the guests do not have any other option for food except the resorts kitchen.
Overall an average experience made better only because the weather and the natural environs were very pleasing.

Anand Retreat is not a hotel in Lansdowne, it is a jungle resort.

The way to the resort is unbelievable... you won't believe your vehicle can go down that path...I remember the girls cribbing and everyone cursing the resort owner and it was decided that we have been conned. It was a roller coaster ride :) the best...I enjoyed it thoroughly and anticipated the unknown.

The staff is very simple and good hearted people, they do not know how to maintain the resort, but man it was a super beutiful place. The resort was not maintained and pool was dirty, garden not maintained, it was all so naturally beutifull. This all gave a feel like we actually are in a jungle and not a hotel or resort. Mosr people fail to see that and expect 3-star hotel treatment.

These guys will not con you, ask for their guide to give you a tour of the surrounding forrest in morning 6-8am, it is heavenly, this resort is best situated.

If you are going for a weekend get away and not sight seeying like old people, i would recommend use only this resort.

The food was very very good and reasonable. The rooms are not very well maintained and could be a problem for people accustomed to 3-star+ facilities. But fact is, no rich brat will book a resort of this budget anyways, so I dont get why any idiot will complain with the maintenance and condition of a jungle resort at this budget.

If you are a happy and andventurous person and love nature and peace, you would love this location.

The staff is a little thick minded and simple, be nice to them really...they are not as cunning, fast and corrupted as delhites yet.

We went to the Jungle Resort Retreat Anand last weekend -- 4 couples and 6 kids. First, we had called to book ahead, and we asked for 4 rooms. The person we spoke to, one Mr. Harinder, asked us to finalise again in the evening, so we called Friday night and he confirmed that there would be 4 rooms reserved for us.We reached Landsdowne at 1:00pm (we were driving down from Delhi) and we called the resort for directions from the main market at Gandhi Chowk. Imagine our consternation when the person at the desk said the rooms hadn't been kept for us. His excuse was "people don't land up after confirming, so we just give the rooms on a first-come basis". !!! What was the point of confirming, then? He then said he had 2 "family rooms" which had 4 beds each. We had no option but to agree. We then drove up to the retreat (the drive is not for the faint-hearted as it is steep, the road is narrow and broken and there is no railing on the mountainside). The location is excellent, amid the pine forest, but that is about it. We had cottages 4 and 5. The rooms and loos are spacious, but not maintained at all. No toiletries, dirty towels and becovers, and BOTH the rooms had rat poop! Disgusting. The food is also quite bad. We left early on Sunday, not wanting to stay longer at all. Wouldn't go there again on a bet.
