We were very suprised when we first arrived at Jungle Hut. I don't know why, but we never expected it to be this nice. It's in a lovely setting near Mudumalai National Park. There are lots of animals walking around the large grounds, like sheep, chickens, cats and sometimes even a spotted deer. The garden is wonderful with all kinds of nice trees and flowers and the atmosphere is very friendly and laid back.
We had a large standard room, nicely decorated, with an enormous bathroom attached. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all buffet style, with lots of options. They have cards with the name of the dish on it, so you know what you're eating. But anything we ate tasted delicious.
The best part of Jungle Hut is their natural swimming pool. We never had a swim before with such a beautiful view! Also the water was really refreshing.
