There were four of us, and we shared a large, comfy lodge with balconies. Wonderful home cooking. Great hospitality from our guide, Manu, who showed us all around the area in his jeep. Don't miss the Tibetan Buddhist retreat - a treat for the eyes and soul. Nice, clean, cool pool. But best of all, a young elephant came within... More

From the location inside the forest, the food, the professional staff, the living spaces and amazing forest treks, Jungle Retreat is a must for any real forest lover. This a luxury hotel for those who want to to be able to see elephants and an occasional leopard from the bed and if you think that luxury is having multiple channels... More

I went with my aunt, cousin and friend for a short visit to Jungle Retreat and I think all of us wished it could have been much longer. We had an amazing time there. The staff are incredibly friendly and strive to meet all your needs. They made sure we did not miss any wildlife that happened to come by... More

Its a photographer's dream come true. You can watch wild animals from the cottages. The Owner takes good care that you don't miss out on any earthen experience. The food, the quaint cottages, the amazing view..everything was so perfect!!

Stay at JRW was so special for us. One of the most unique properties that we have stayed in because of multiple reasons... breathtaking view from the room (wooden cottage), where you can see most of the animals grazing in the open fields. We felt that the boys at the resort, who was our guide during the safari and trek,... More

We started late from Bangalore so was sure we will reach the place only by 4PM, but did not wanted to take a lunch break, since that is going to add to the delay. So called up Anil (owner of the property) and asked him whether he could spare us some food by 4 PM and he readily acknowledged, but... More

I got back from the Jungle Retreat last month and already wish I could go back! From the moment we got out of the car and walked into this farm, we felt at home! Every single person went completely above and beyond our expectations to make our experience brilliant! The food was delicious, the cottages were quaint and cute, the... More

Beautiful location, amazing people and perfect accommodation. While I was not particularly lucky in terms of wildlife sightings, the beauty of Jungle Retreat Wayanad meant that I really did not mind at all. I had a fabulous stay. The setting is amazing, the accommodation perfect for this kind of location - I stayed in a jungle cottage with its fabulous... More

My husband and I decided to spend our first wedding anniversary doing what we love best, being in the wild with nothing but the sound of nature and lush greenery all around. We went with no expectations and came home thoroughly satisfied. Jungle Retreat, Wayanad, is tucked away in the middle of the most beautiful surroundings with its highlight being... More
