Rajesh the owner was there to welcome us. However, the room was not quite ready for us, but that was fine we had just travelled down from Munnar and were thirsty and hungry. Lots of restaurants within 5 minute walk, plus shops to browse around.
Couldn't wait to get back to the property to see our room. We were on the top floor and the bedroom and bathroom were huge. The views from our balcony were stunning, seeing my first samba deer and boar from the balcony was great and to hear all the different birdsong and frogs.
We had quite a few power cuts while there, but Jungle Palace didn't seem affected so presume they have a generator unlike the hotels opposite. Only drawback is having to ask for hot water to be switched on, which is done immediately, but just didn't like having to disturb the family.
Rajesh was very kind and arranged for a tuk tuk to take us to the local elephant sanctuary where we rode and washed the elephant. It was great. The next day a jeep had been arranged to take us on safari. Rajesh's father or father-in-law was up at 5.15 am just to make sure we were all set for our trip.
Met his two children who were lovely - all in all a lovely family running a lovely place.
