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

Plus points staff very helpful and pleasant. Mr, Venkatesh the naturalist very knowledgeable in wildlife and all about Hampi temples. Negatives 1. Misleading in that the resort is 18km from the Daroji sloth bear sanctuary. I chose this resort thinking it was next to the sanctuary. Als I could not find proper directions on the JLR website so got a... More

This is the first JLR property we have stayed in, so cannot compare to other JLR properties; however we had a wonderful experience right from the beginning. The cottages are very private, very clean and fairly large. Service with a smile is the motto of the staff! Special mention needs to be made of Mr. Muthappa and Mr. Mahesh, as... More

A perfect getaway to an area rich in heritage and wildlife. If these are not your interests, a perfect place to unwind in nature, spacious cottages with beautiful views all around. The itinerary offers a good mix of heritage site visits and nature visits for 1,2,3 days. My purpose as a nature photographer was to see the unique species around... More

I would rate this place as three-and-half. Overall, it was quite a satisfactory trip. The staff are very polite and take very good care of you. Food is also excellent. However, the infrastructure in the rooms can be improved. There were some lizards in the room and one glass pane in the window was missing. The tap in the wash... More
