“Nice location great staff.”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

This is a nice place tucked up in the hills of Almora. The name Jungle resort should have resonated with the resort structure, I expected warm wooden cozy rooms, but instead it was concrete resort like most resorts these days! However, it's still nice for its price and the staff are wonderful, you also get to see a lot of birds around this resort. The staff could use local knowledge and identify birds for those interested, this way knowledge is shared. The food is also not too bad. Although a wealth has been invested in this place, the management and owners might want to improve on run down towels, sheets and blankets, it's time to purchase new ones! Overall a pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Choose the ones where you get good view, new block.

We stayed in Kasaar Jungle Resort during our trip to Almora & Binsar. The location where the resort is situated is splendid, with great view of Dhauladhaar mountain range. Accommodation facilities were adequate, clean rooms and effective housekeeping. Hospitality staff were quite courteous and helping. Food quality, however, was a let down not justifying the star rated charge of meals. It is a sincere suggestion to the concerned management of the resort to improve the quality of food, so that stay in the resort can be totally enjoyed.

Room Tip: Ask for West facing rooms, as the view of snow clad mountain range is available without obstruction

Visited this place in Feb 2012.
I guess it is the only best cottage in Almora, to stop over before you move on to your next destination or simply enjoy Almora and around!

Excellent Scenic beauty, serene, quite, clean with lots of Deodar trees around. Has a jungle feel.. with all the comforts !
Every room has a balcony/ sit-out area to enjoy your morning evening tea.
Every room has a different view and you have to walk / climb a few hilly stairs to reach to your room which is good if you enjoy hilly natural stay !
Some rooms have excellent Himalayan view with natural light.
Rooms have big glass windows to view the nazaara…
Having breakfast in their open dining area is awesome, viewing the hills... sun...
Rooms have the facility of electric tea maker.

Don’t forget to take a short walk to Kassar Temple, ( so the cottage name ! ) walking distance from the cottage, especially in the evening, sun set is beautiful, breathtaking view, breathe the pure clean air on top of the hill where temple is situated! Panditji is available if you are lucky ! Or ring the bell of the temple number of times n he will come !! Tip him if u feel like for his quick pooja as he looks forward for it !!

To have a clear Snow capped Himalayan view visit in Feb end, March, April, n I guess it’s less crowded also during these months.
They make very nice aaloo gobhi parathas!
Overall services are good. The manager is humble, courteous, and friendly.
Don’t expect lavish food, if u are a simple eater, you won’t find anything less.
Rooms n bathrooms are clean with enough hot water.
In Feb it was pretty cold, so go with equipped clothes, extra pair of socks, warmer as the place gets real cold in the evenings, they do provide hot air blower but it’s not really effective!

Overall I would say it was a great experience bcz of the place itself, temple n ya nearby Panchachuli, women weavers of Kumaon as they have excellent hand woven.
woolen shawls, stoles, mufflers in beautiful natural colors dyes. Its on the way to the cottage, keep a check or ask the local people. The shop has some timings, 10 am - 1 pm, 3-5 pm, they shut down early in the evening.

I visited Kasaar Jungle Resort, Almora last weekend for 3 nights along with my wife , business partner and his wife . While the hotel it self is located on the wonderful part of Almora , on a pretty mountain side surrounded by trees , the facilities and rooms are quite good, well appointed , the staff overall quite courteous, they fell short quite teriibly in the food department. We were booked to say on an MAP Plan, stay with breakfast and one meal ( dinner ) .Since the hotel had low occupancy, they offerered to serve us A La Carte, instead of the usual buffet , this is where they failed miserably , we were served measly limited portions , especially the non vegetarian dishes, for the first two nights they served a main course with less than half a chicken for 4 persons . When we met and complained to the manager on the 3rd day , they again did the same thing, it took some serious complaining for them to rectify the portion size on day 3 , this after the meal was served . Pity that such a misery attitude about food spoilt what would have been an otherwise excellent stay .

Room Tip: As the hotel is on a mountain side with steep steps and a lot of climbing is need to go to and from...

Although this resort features when you look for resorts at Binsar, this is a good 25-30 kms from Binsar wildlife sanctuary (the real forest area), which is a lot in the hills. Neverthless, the resort is well located and offers a gorgeous view of the snow peaks if you take rooms at higher levels. Take ground floor rooms only if you have small kids, so that they can run around. Children can be left unattended and have a slide and swings to play on (though poorly maintained). Cleanliness of the rooms is average and towels dont smell too clean. Food is ok but be on time or you will have to wait for it to be replenished. Considering the facilities and proximity to the large Almora town, tarrif is a bit steep. The Manager is helpful and receptive to feedback. Staff is polite and helpful though not too well trained. It is absolutey essential to have a vehicle because there is nothing to see within walking distance except the Kasar Devi temple..a tiny temple with several bells.
We stayed 2 nights and drove to the Wildlife santuary one of the days. About 5 kms on the way, there is a small 'chhatri' on a hilltop. You can park below the hill and climb up. The view from here is fabulous.Not exactly a star place but decent enough!

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have a better view

Staying at the Kasaar Jungle was a great treat and a break away from the noise and rush of Calcutta. We loved the location and enjoyed the spectacular view of Himalayas. Food is good and specially staff is very friendly and really takes care of you.
Overall it was great experience.
