We enjoyed watching the deer grazing by your window early in the morning or late afternoon. At a distance in the mountains we saw an elephant family. The trek up the mountains to Sholur was just...

Tucked away within the Mudumalai park, at the foothills of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, Jungle Hut provides you time, space and the view to find solace in nature, and if I may add - to review our own daily thankless material pursuit. The beautiful property is thoughtfully maintained and superlatively managed, thanks to its manager Vivek Varma. The cottages are... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
After working for 25 years on tea plantations Joe and Hermie Mathias chose to retire close to nature away from the buzzing city life. They started Jungle Hut in 1986 sharing the warmth of their home and providing the unique getaway for the adventurous traveller. Through word of mouth people from far and wide visited Jungle Hut and many of them continue to patronise us.My wife and I follow in their footsteps and open our home to you.Welcome to Jungle Hut.At 3000 feet above sea level and a range of climatic conditions, our holiday estate is surrounded by a wealth of plant and animal life that thrives amidst sparkling streams and virgin jungle. Here you can trek meandering forest paths, enjoy peace and quiet under starry skies, or be bold and explore your wild side with a jungle safari.At the end of the day treat yourself to a hot shower in our cozy rooms and then relax for a while on verandahs that offer breathtaking views while ensuring your privacy. When you're hungry, come on up to our dining area, we cater buffet meals with a home cooked feel.Through all our travels we have not come across a hideaway offering such serenity. Our guests the world over have echoed this same feeling. Don't forget to bring your camera as this is one holiday you will want to remember for a long, long time. So come, stay a while, enjoy our hospitality and nature at its best.- Anushri and Vikram Mathias. ... more   less
