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!

I am totally in love with this place - the resort, location, surrounding, people, food - EVERYTHING is superb! The resort is located in a jungle just at the foothills of Nilgiris and there are spotted deer roaming around, langoors in the resort and on our last day of stay, we were informed by the manager that there's a tusker in the parking! We rushed to see the elephant and indeed it was there looking for food! - Room: We booked the deluxe tent and it was a very nice, spacious room with enough space for 3 people. The room had all basic amenities but in my view, the lighting was a bit less and it would be good if the rooms could be more lit. They have provided towels, pool towels, basic toiletries, hair dryer etc. Ample seating space just outside the room. There were rabbits in our backyard and deer in the front! - Staff & Service: Since we were out most of the time - once due to safari and once for trekking, our rooms were not cleaned but they ensured to leave fresh towels and drinking water outside the room which was quite thoughtful. The staff is amazing - the manager was quite friendly, he explained the "rules" of the place once we checked in and also helped us in booking a safari. He used to keep checking on our stay and also was our point of contact for any help (I am unable to recall his name!) - Food: They have buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Though the spread was limited but the taste was great. So no complaints. - Activities: We went to 2 safaris - 1 in Bandipur and another in Mudumalai. The resort people help with JLR Bandipur safari and for Mudumalai safari, there's no option to pre-book and hence you need to go there and book. The resort arranged for a trek and bird watching which was again a great experience - the guy took us to a small hill nearby which had a Murugan temple at the top and the views from above were beautiful. While on the way, we spotted multiple birds and also saw an elephant and bison on another mountain. We also enjoyed the swimming pool inside the resort. Overall a wonderful stay in the lap of nature and I would surely recommend it to my friends and family.

We, a group of 10 people, stayed here for two nights. The location is one of the highlight of the place. You can see yourself right at the foot hills of Nilgiris with lush green forest. We stayed in 4 standard rooms and they were quite comfortable. All the basic amenities were there. Food is slightly on the expensive side. The options are limited but preparation was good and hygiene was not an issue at all. We enjoyed the pool for two days (especially our kids) and recreational area also had enough activities to keep us occupied during the stay. We could see lot of animals in the resort itself, like Deers, Mongose, Monkeys, peacock etc. We head from the staff that couple of night ago, Elephants also crossed the resort. We arranged for a bird watching session in the morning of one day and it was quite enjoyable. Couple of things that we would like to suggest though. Dinner timing starts from 8:30 and it was little late for few of the elders with us. Swimming pool water could be maintained a little better as it had lot of chlorine to keep it hygienic. I forgot to mention the bonfire that was arranged by the staff on one of the nights. It was a real good experience, sitting in the open, under cloudless skies, under the backdrop of Mountains with thousands of stars (we hardly see in bangalore now a days). So overall a really good experience and recommended for anyone looking to disconnect from the daily hectic life and relax amidst the nature.

Dear Mr. Rajneesh Greetings from Jungle Hut! Thank you for your review. We are delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. We agree that bonfire nights are truly magical here and we are so happy to know that you had a great time :-) Thank you for your feedback regarding the swimming pool too. The concerned team has been notified so that it doesn't happen again. Regarding the meal timings, we are not sure if there was a miscommunication because as per our log dinner was served at 8 PM every evening which is our standard timing. Breakfast is from 8.30 AM to 10.00 AM. Our apologies if the timings were mixed up during the briefing, we will take extra care going forward. Recommendations from happy guests also mean a lot to us :-) so do share your experience with your friends and family. Once again we'd like to thank you for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to hosting you again soon! Regards Shruti

It was an amazing experience in the lap of nature , lovely friendly and courteous staff, amazing food and hospitality. Lot of activities for kids. I loved the way staff cared of our needs and listened to the needs and suggestions. Hope the nature always rule here and it keeps healing us.Their dining area and choice of dishes are also very good.Homely food. The swimming pool is beautifully located , but it needs to be updated on security grounds. Guests should take care of invisible steps on bottom of pool, they may be source of injury to a swimmer.

Went for a liesure trip and was not disappointed. The place is very well placed inside jungle with accessibility to nearby village. Deers will be roaming around room which is an amazing feeling. If your aim to cover less places and just unwind then this is the place. P. S we went with an infant and we didn't face any issues.
