The swimming pool... More

I originally planned to stay two nights, and I finally extended to three days my stay in Jungle Hut. What made me extend my stay was the pure nature environment...and the fallow deers! The scenery is fantastic: mountains in the distance, flowers and trees, a forest at the border of the property, and families of fallow deers that became familiar... More

9 of us hopped into two (large) cars and headed to Masinagudi's Jungle Hut; last weekend. There were other cheaper place around but we're a slightly older lot of friends; in our 50's & 60's; so we're quite fussy about our creature comforts. Not de riguer but pretty much so. Pass Bandipur Game Reserve on the way and were horrified... More

Even before we reach I feel this calming yet excited feeling, and we are not disappointed. Jungle hut is the perfect place to just be. The mountains change colour through the day. The air is sweet and cool. The food is awesome. Vikram, anushree and Vivek make it happen just right. It is our favorite place to go.

Stayed here with my wife & a couple friend. It's a long drive from Ooty & the 36 hairpins (hill curves) can make you a bit dizzy. It's far far away, feel like no mans land. It was the 1st resort to come up in this area. Secluded, clean, spacious & quiet. Just the place we needed. Can get quite... More
