That's all that I need to write in this review. On our way to Thriunelli temple in an open jeep at about 630pm, when least expected, there he lies right by the side of the road. We got a good look at him for abt 3 mins and then with a very disinterested look he just got up and disappeared... More

Our family trip to JRW was very satisfying and we will certainly come back. Highlights : 1. Wildlife that you get to see within the property itself 2. The safaris into Nagarahole and Kabini national parks. Though the safaris are organized by the government, special effort taken by the team in JRW to organize the tickets for us. The driver... More

3 tiger sightings and 2 leopards in 3 days! The safaris are a must do, the guides here have a special knack of finding hidden animals for you. The entire stay was so enjoyable, spending time at the bonfire, enjoying the lovely local delicacies and last but not the least, the amazing staff. What a place!

Our stay in the middle of the beautiful jungle in wayanad was amazing. Thanks to jungle retreat wayanad, we were actually able to stay in the jungle and have regular wildlife sightings from the watch tower. For a wildlife lover who is looking to maximize the chance of sightings, the retreat and especially the watch tower is a great option.... More

I stayed here in January 2015 for 3 nights with my wife and kids and were so moved by our jungle experience. We have travelled to various wildlife sanctuaries in India but nothing compares to the absolute wildlife experience you get here. Though we had arrived very early in the morning, we were received with such warmth that it absolutely... More

Our stay was good. Tasty food but basic amenities like extra blanket during winter / TV are missing. Toilet paper & bottled water is a must. There is a scope for improvement. Need to include more outdoor activities. Our package included a visit to the Information Center and Campfire which didn't happen.

We chose to stay here as a few friends of us recommended this place. The location is fabulous, right in the depths of wilderness with animals walking through your front porch. Rejin, the naturalist and Krishnakumar, the cook were enthusiastic and hospitable. However, the other staff weren't too welcoming. They caretakers talk loud enough to overpower alarm calls, chirping and... More

I stayed in JR for 2 days but I am left with memories that will last forever. The host Anil and his boys made each moment of our stay a memorable one...be it watching the elephants and gaurs at close quarters from your very own balcony or sharing wildlife experiences with Anil or enjoying the yummy fish fry, chicken curry...

Good fun stay, good food and plenty of opportunities to see wildlife. Accommodation fair, not that we expected luxuries like tv and wifi, but toilet paper and bottled water surely a must for the price?
