I've been visiting this place for 5 years now and I totally love it. The staff are excellent. The food is great and safaris into Bandipur are excellent as ever. The rooms are neat and clean and follow the usual JLR standards. The special cottages are super spacious and more private than the cottages which located in a line.

This one, like any other JLR resort has all inclusive fares. The rooms are clean, staff friendly and helpful. However, this being one of the older properties of JLR, the furniture...

Jungle Lodges offers you a nice, homely stay in the forests of Bandipur. The rooms are homely, individual and well-kept but don't expect anything over the top. Then again, if you spend all day out on the safari, that's not something to worry about. Jungle Lodges is a nice, affordable place to stay in, amidst the wild.

Fantastic accommodation, buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner serving good food. Ask for a lime and soda drink (choose sweet or sour) they are great. We did their standard trip... arrive, have lunch, go on safari jeep ride, watch a documentary, have dinner, bed, early morning safari jeep ride, breakfast and depart. We didn't see tiger or leopard and for that...

Having visited this resort four times earlier, one has seen the deterioration of standard of maintenance and quality of food despite the tariff only increasing every six months. Once expected things to improve with Ms Salma as the Manager, but was most disappointed. She had done a great job at River Tern resort of JLR at Bhadravathi. Hope someone looks...

Jungle Lodges standards maintained. Easy to get accommodation. Comfortable stay and good food. The staff are polite and helpful. Wildlife sightings may not be as good as the safaris in kabini / nagarhole.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once the private hunting grounds of the maharaja, Bandipur is unapologetically wild terrain. Elephants roam in large herds, deer stare at you brazenly and peafowl flit in and out as they deem fit. Nestled at the foothills of the Nilgiris, Bandipur has had a long tryst with tigers. One of the thirty reserves identified across the country to save the tiger and its habitat, it's also one of the last refuges of the endangered Asiatic wild elephant. The Bandipur Safari Lodge is your way of being a part of this ecological haven. ... more   less
