We had been there for 3 nights and split our stay in the wooden cottage and brick cottage, no doubt the wooden cottage is the best for the views that it offers. The resort is completely surrounded by forest which nature lovers will crave. The wooden cottage is literally at the border of the paddy field overlooking the watering hole... More

The staff is friendly and super helpful and took great care of us during our stay. Anil, the owner is a born naturalist who gave us an incredible experience during our trek,... More

The caretaker boys are extremely kind and makes sure that everything is running well and that... More

There are very few places that you an in international traveller would consider revisiting, especially when there is so much more to explore. But the very fact that we are going back right across the world is a clear indication of how much we loved our experience. We stayed in Wayanad in 2014 and we are already making plans to... More

Jungle Retreat has a great location and staff. The resort is surrounded by the jungle with no fencing around for 5 acres so that the animals can get upclose to the watering hole in the property. We stay here atleast twice in a year and we absolutely love it! Hearing the alarm calls of spotted and sambar deer, langurs and... More

JRW is one of the best places I have stayed at. The location is perfect, be it to sit on the machan and spot wildlife in the untouched forests that surround it and within the resort grounds, or to pick up your vehicle and venture out into the national park for their amazing safaris. The property itself beautifully blends in... More

It was our 2nd visit to Jungle Retreat. The first trip being amazing due to awesome location ( body) and a super awesome host Anoop (soul of the resort), who himself was a wildlife enthusiast, and therefore made us updated on all activities around the farm. His service was truly from his heart! The 2nd visit disappointing as the new... More

You ask for it you had it. 2015 , I returned to the place. Excited. First shocker was our timing. It was time for Forest department to take foresst... More

This was our second trip to Jungle Retreat, Wayanad. We loved the place the first time around, and we loved it again! Things were a bit different this time, we stayed in the villa with a huge balcony that overlooked the entire property. The mornings were beautiful like always and the staff was wonderful. Delighted to see Das again who... More
