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

We really didn't know what to expect but it was absolutely amazing!! Pure nature! Jungle sounds and sights. Great staff. Nice room with a big terrace which was also enjoyed by the lemur monkeys if you happened to leave anything there... Wish we had booked for more nights!

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
