I spent a couple of days at Jungle Retreat at the end of my trip to India and what a perfect way to unwind before a long flight home. The owners and staff were all very gracious and really friendly with a strong commitment to preserving the environment.The food was superb and my food issues were catered for without any fuss and loss of flavour. Everything is done to make guests feel safe and relaxed as the jungle is right next door to the retreat and it really is the jungle. We just made one safari trip and were rewarded by sightings of wild elephants including a couple of very pregnant ladies and a three months old baby. A lovely experience. If you are going to be in South India I would say that staying at Jungle Retreat could be one of the highlights of your holiday.Maureen Dec 2012
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Jungle Retreat is a family-run resort, that offers a range of country-style cottages, that suit different budgets, while catering to a similar mindset. Insulated within 35 Acres of carefully cultivated and nurtured biodiversity, Jungle Retreat is a haven for wildlife and has come a long way since its beginnings in 1996 when it was barren farmland. Being family-run, service is personalised, informal yet professional. Jungle Retreat does not take Corporate bookings or all male groups, so you can be assured of an ambiance that does not remind you of work and appeals even to the single female traveller. Food is laid out in buffet-style. Menus are set twice a day after taking into consideration guest preferences and allergies. Activities like safaris and walks may be customised with the in-house activities in-charge and are organised within the parameters stipulated by the Forest Department and government agencies. Activities are subject to availability and weather conditions. Jungle Retreat has house pets (cats and dogs) that have always been with the family. Having encouraged wildlife on the campus, house-rules are to be adhered to for the safety of our guests. ... more less
