Renamed Hampi Heritage & Wilderness Resort -- this property is located in a quiet area in the brush. It has 19 or so cottages each sufficiently away from each other that you have privacy. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Bathrooms basic (get rid of the moth balls), but again clean. Food was excellent, serving a variety and diverse... More

Sloth Bear Resort, run by Jungle Lodges, a venture of the Karnataka Govt. is a sure winner. A sense of peace envelops you the minute you turn off the car and get down. You can feel your ulcers drying up, your BP coming down and your heart rate slowing. Set amidst scrub forest with a quiet beauty that grows on... More

I went here during peak summer, May 2016. Its a totally different landscape compared to any other jungle trips I've done in south India. You cannot hope for a stretch of forest like what you see in southern forests. You can experience scrub forests everywhere. The property is beautifully located away from the main town. Food and service were really... More

The staff was amazing, the stay was relaxing and the site seeing experience was incredible. It was very thoughtful of Mr. Ravi (Manager) and Mr. Mahesh (Naturalist) to arrange a surprise cake for my wife's bday. They really amazed us with their efforts to make our stay memorable. Hats off to that! The food was simply best compared to any... More

A great property and amazingly helpful staff. The food quality is nice and the best part is it being nestled in the sanctuary, away from the niose and perfect place to unwind. The resort also took care of our tours with an amazingly knowledgeable driver cum guide.

The resort has about 22 nicely done cottages and is little outside the Hampi ruins but within comfortable reach to most places of interest.

I've not got a service as good as the guys in this Jungle lodge served me and my family. The staff were too good. The food was good, cottages were good and the overall feeling was just awesome. Mahesh, Muthappa, Niranjan and their entire team was just too good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hampi better known as the world's largest open air museum, after all these centuries testifies to the glory of the Vijayanagara Empire. The still-standing monuments, with their carefully articulated design and sculpture, pay tribute to the opulence and grandeur. The iconic Stone Chariot and the legendary musical pillars within the Vijaya Vittala Temple: which, as the legend goes, was built for Lord Vishnu himself and the ancient Virupaksha Temple which is believed to have hosted the betrothal of Lord Shiva and Parvati; and countless other monuments steeped in history are what stand as background to the Sloth Bear Resort. ... more   less
