ON the road from Hampi to Ballari, this gem of a place is right next to the Daroji Sloth bear conservation park. The staff at this place is amazing. The accommodations are just as good. The one thing I have to say is that the accommodations are not easily accessible by a vehicle. (one has to walk). So having older... More

Great location with lots of birds inside the resort. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Staff are friendly and courteous. Food was good. Safari and morning nature walk are recommended, especially for bird watchers.

Went for a birding trip to Hampi and contacted these guys. The stay is the best one in that region anyways. However, for birding this place is a heaven, the naturalists led by Venkatesh ensured that I had a great time. There is a bird bath in the resort where I got painted spurfowl, JungleBush qual among others. In the... More

We chose the early check-in and late checkout option - a must since we commuted by train (Hampi Express) from Bangalore. This would additionally cover bkfst on day1 and lunch & tea on the second day evening. Hampi is well known Heritage site but needs about 2 half days to do some justice - for Virupaksha and Vittala temples alone.... More

We stayed here for two nights and in short the stay was good and memorable. The cottages are set far from each other giving them an independent feel. The property is quite large and if you are into birding then a bird bath and walks inside will be enriching - painted spurfowls, francolins, munias, quails, bee eaters, lapping(red wattled), white...

The two nights at this Jungle Resorts property were nice. Though we were the only guests, nothing was compromised in terms of quality, variety of food and wonderful service, the USP of all Jungle Lodges. Airconditioned, well appointed cottages are scattered amid 32 acres of dry, arid, scrub land which sucks the very moisture out of you. Rich in bird... More

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
