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

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

Great place! Lovely environment with accommodation which blends in with the surroundings. Run by someone who obviously knows a lot when it comes to wildlife. Anil is a naturalist par excellence and Rejin goes out of his way and leaves no stone unturned to ensure that you are well taken care off and comfortable. Brilliant sightings of the big cats...

My husband and I chose to stay at the Jungle Retreat because we wanted to see animals in the wild and enjoy the beautiful nature walks available in this area. As we were driving to towards the retreat, about a couple of kms away from the retreat my husband spotted a leopard by the side of the road. We backed... More

I discovered the place through Trip Advisor and the reviews and website are absolutely in line with the actual experience. My kid absolutely loved this place to bits. What really worked well for us is that this place focuses on hospitality as... More

We took a family villa and one cottage which was fairly spacious,and neatly furnished. It is surrounded by... More
