Reviewed 30 April 2013 via mobile

Go to place for all in all bad experience. We actually liked n stayed at the tent house. Wakeup with n number of insect bites. At night its scary as we couple were all alone ..no othr guests. No good lightings. We planned for 2days n ran away with 1 night stay itself. Food was pathetic. No othr entertainmnt inside. Staff are ok, will give good response.

dear sir,we would like to thank you for the time taken by you to post a review.first of all i would like to mention here that we are not responsible for you to be the only guests staying with us at the time of your check in.if you wee so much interested to stay with a lot of crowd then you should have made it a point to ask the resort management if there were other guests at the date of your check in.secondly please do remember that this resort is located in a remote place with right next to wilderness and next to a national park(so please do not expect the same type of surroundings as in a city).we have taken care to provide insect proof mesh for the windows of all our tented cottages to prevent insects from entering the tent.it is for you to make sure that you make it a point to close your door and secure it properly every time you enter and leave the ten(and not blame the management for carelessness shown in this regard)t.food is a personal opinion and we always strive to make a healthy and clean meal albeit local south indian mysore menu.and as far as the lightings are concerned we have provided adequate lights both inside the tent and as well as on the sit out.this is not a conventional city resort with blaring bright lights in the night.we have tried to provide ample lighting given the nature of the surroundings which happens to be next to a forest.so please remember the next time you write a review make sure you read the website and also understand the type of a hotel or resort before making adverse comments about the same.lastly WE KINDLY WOULD LIKE TO REMIND YOU THAT OUR MANAGER GLADLY MADE A PROPOSITION OF SHOWING YOU THE STANDARD DOUBLE ROOM IN THE NEW BLOCK JUST IN CASE YOU WERE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE TENTED COTTAGE.AND YOU MADE THE CHOICE .SO PLEASE DO NOT BLAME THE MANAGEMENT ON THIS FRONT.NEXT TIME WE KINDLY REQUEST YOU NOT TO MAKE HURTFUL AND ADVERSE COMMENTS ABOUT A PROPERTY WITHOUT ANY PROPER CHANNEL OR BASE JUST FOR THE SAKE OF WRITING A REVIEW.THANK YOU.

None of the activities mentioned as "We Offer" are available to the tourists. No entertainment, no TV, shortage of electricity, etc. When asked about the other activities, the manager had to say "Sorry Sir, we dont have any such here". In fact, the safari being "offered" is actually offered by the Forest Department.
Suggestion - directly approach the Forest Ranger office - this is 25KM from the entrance of the forest. The safaris are 1 hour at 6,7,8AM and 3,4,5PM. After the safari directly proceed towards Coorg or Mysore.

Cheap and best resort in Nagarhole. There are a number of group activities conducted. Some tribal dance and bonfire. Food is okay, not bad but not good either, can't expect much in a jungle. Clean couple cottages and a bunker room with some 5 beds.

We were a group a of 3, we took the Tent accommodation which had a Bunk bed and 2 single bed. There was only a standing fan, but it was ok because the weather was really pleasant during our stay. The Bathroom is Basic with a western style toilet equipped with jet. For hot water had to wait for a while, alomost a bucket before the hot water started to seep through, though we were informed this would happen it seemed a shame to waste so much water.
The food is just average, nothing to be too excited about but enough to fill the tummy. Breakfast was really pleasant though with dosa, chutney, sambar, omelette and bread.
The staff does a decent job of informing you about everything you wanna know. They suggested that we take the last safari, the one that starts at 5pm and ends roughly around 6pm. And good thing we listen to them because at sundown after 6 pm, its 25km drive back to jungle inn though the forest and in that stretch you can see all the animals which come out in the dark. We had a Tigress in the middle of the road while we driving, really trilling experience. There were also Deers, bisons, sambals and elephants. Drive slowly and at high beam and may be you will also get lucky.

2)Rooms- ok . we did not get Hot Water at all. on demanding, staff got us just a bucket of Hot water.
3)Activities-only on Saturday there will be camp fire and Tribal Folk Dance.
4)safari- Resort Offers only road Side safari, i thought it was of waste.so we took our own vehicle and went for road side safari. we saw wild elephants.we went to nagarhole park, went for safari in a government bus, no use we didn't see anything.
5)Resort-Resort is fenced with electric wires.No other Activities are there.long grown grass every where.
6)Staff-Average.While leaving,Entire staff will crowd in the parking space for the tips.

We stayed in Jungle Inn resorts for a day on 25 Oct 2012. The moment we stepped in to the Double Bedroom (Regular), we wanted to get out of it earliest.
1. Dust all over - I guess rooms were cleaned once in year or decade.
2. Chair in the room, had all the dirt in the world.- Never cleaned.
3. Water in the bathroom - Hot water is available only from 7AM to 10 AM. When you open the tap insects and some white colored like cement came out. If you take 2-3 bath probably you will alergies.
4. Food was pathetic - Rice looked like brought from Govt Societly very poor quality.

Rs3600/- is not worth at all. Not worth to pay even Rs100/- for the room.

Activities
1. Rafting and Rappelling - Not available
2. coracle ride - Not available.
3. Wildlife Tour - You can take your vechicle inside the nagarahole forest. No need to pay Rs400/- per person for them.

I sincerely suggest you look out for other options.

Room Tip: Rooms are pathetic in condition.
