Right from the booking process till check out, we were wonderfully looked after and well informed. We knew what to expect, we knew it was not a "proper" resort, we knew we'd see wildlife - we weren't disappointed. The noon that we reached, we were welcomed by a huge Tusker in the field drinking water. The safari drive was incredible, animals at every turn. The second night we did an additional safari drive and we saw the most elusive Royal Bengal Tiger. For a wildlife lover, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing the majestic Tiger in the night in its natural surroundings. I have a renewed respect for the wild after that incident. The food was finger-licking good. The other aspect that was just excellent was the service, we were so well looked after by everyone. We were prepared to settle for the most basic of rooms if needed, just to see the Tiger. Luckily at Jungle Retreat Wayanad, we didn't have to cut corners, the room was lovely, blended in with nature very well, the balcony even better!
A must-visit for any wildlife and nature lover.
