Not much can be written about jungle retreat, that has not been written already, but ours was truly a special experience. The main advantage you have when staying there is that you get to spot wildlife without going in search of them. The rooms have good balconies and on given day you can spot animals including elephants. We spent 3... More

We spent three days at Jungle Retreat Wyanad in March and thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of this spot, despite a few hiccoughs along the way. We had opted to travel by taxi from Coorg in Karnatika as it would have been three buses and two rickshaws otherwise, but if you're travelling from Kannur or Mananthavadi, there is a direct local...

Not much of a reviewer, but it will be a unfair if I don't review Jungle retreat wayanad. Being a single female traveler who wanted to get away from the city life, I wanted to spend a few days somewhere cut off at the same time safe. After extensive search and assuring mom that I'd call back every day, I... More

Jungle retreat wayanad in a sense was a slice of India! It was beautifully chaotic and I mean it in the nicest possible way! There was so much going on there that there was never a dull moment. Be it the wild elephants visiting the retreat to the staff running around to get things done to the jeep driver waiting... More
