I have stayed at other JLR properties and had very positive experiences at each of them. Sloth Bear resort did not disappoint either. Like the other properties, while the actual travel experience was fantastic, JLR staff provided the most memorable moments. I would remember Ms Jayanthi who helped with the bookings, the manager, Mr Asif - an old JLR hand... More

This one does not have a lake or river nearby, but still the resort is beautiful and a very pleasant place. - the rooms are comfortable, which is usually not true with JLR lodges. but in this resort, they are...

For all those who want to visit Hampi - sloth bear is the place to stay. You just have to arrive there and everything else is taken care of - food, sightseeing, guide. At the time of booking the place we didn't know that we had taken up a package not just a room. So it was a pleasant surprise... More

The Sloth Bear Resort, is situated about 20 minutes away from Hampi. It’s ideally located for some one who wants to mix up a wildlife holiday with some general sightseeing. For the folks interested in Hampi , the resort runs guided tour buses twice a day. For folks who are there for birding / ‘bearing’ , they have trips to... More

Everthing as per the minute. Just example we asked for staff to pick up the luggage at 4:55 and exact same time the... More
