Jim's Jungle Retreat is situated in Village Dhela and is right next to the reserve forest with no physical boundary between the resort and the jungle. You are right in the centre of the Jungle action sorrounded by an extremely Warm, Hospitable and Smiling staff :-) The cottages are excellent with a personal outdoor sitting space and a restaurant that...

The rooms are placed beautifully overlooking the dense forest of Jim Corbett. This place has given a new dimension to exploring the activities of tigers in the Place. My stay was really comfortable and the night bonfire was just one of the reason of my love for this place. However, the food menu needs some more improvements in terms of... More

The Lodge is set in a tangle of replanted indigenous forest complete with its thriving birdlife. It shares a boundary with the Tiger Reserve and the frequent alarm calls breaking the still of the night are a reassuring reminder that the neighbourhood tiger roams free and all is well in the jungle around! The cottages and lodges are simple and... More

Property is quite strategically located as lies little away from Ramnagar, and almost into the Jungles. It will be accessible through off-road of 2-3 Kms which basically is a dried river-bed, and thus it's access adds up to adventure. Totally surrounded by thick forest cover and a river-stream whereby animals often come in early mornings & evenings. Full marks to... More

Good spacious rooms, attention to detail in the room decor, attentive local staff, good chef in the kitchen. Completely disconnected (no wi-fi, no mobile/data networks (no Airtel/BSNL/Tata Photon etc), no land lines, no means of transport except the hotel one). Extremely remote and very difficult to reach. Its completely out of the town. If you are a honeymooner, it could... More

Dear Guest, We thank you for the kind review, and for pointing out the positives which helped curate your experience with us at the Retreat, primarily the dedication of our staff. However, it is unfortunate to note that this review is actually related to, and pretty similar to another review received on 27th June. Since we have discussed the reasons... More

Stayed at JJR for two nights and three days in June 16 with family. It was meant to be a relaxing holiday, but the snooty and intrusive attitude of the general manager took the joy away. Pros Isolated location. But it's in Dhela zone, which itself is about 15 kms away from the town proper. Be careful. Well maintained and... More

Dear Guest, It is indeed unfortunate to receive negative and highly critical feedback on a social forum, and it is evidently a very personal critique to mar the reputation of the management. We thank you for taking the time out to mention details that were not to your liking. However, we would also like to bring to your attention the... More

If you want to be close to Jim Corbett park, this is your place. We stayed in one of the 2nd floor 'lodges' [as opposed to the ground-level cottages] and the view looking out over the trees was ideal. Don't be surprised to see monkeys right outside your window. The staff was exceptional and always made the extra effort to... More
