We travelled to Jungle retreat from Bangalore. We could just stay for a day and that was the biggest disappointment. The dining area overlooks a vast open area, which is usually full of deers, birds, langurs. The evening camp fire experience next to the stream was something that will stay in memories for long. Couldn't catch any wild cat or...

First and Foremost. This is at a tranquil location. The view is magnificent. You might look at 100 photos and let me tell you, no photo does justice to the beauty of this place. We stayed in the Jungle Cottage and had the most amazing views during mornings and evenings. Next time I am staying only in JRW and enjoying...

This place was on my watch list for the last 3 to 4 years. Every time I chart a travel plan it got cancelled due to some reasons. But at last I made a bold decision to travel alone. This was very first solo trip & I enjoyed it every moment. The property is perfectly setup amidst the wilderness, they...

Simplicity, warmth, hospitality and wilderness are the words that define this place. We as a family had visited JRW beginning of May. We reached by lunch time. The moment we entered we realized that this was anything but a typical resort. The staff were immediately out to welcome us and before we realized were carrying our bags to help us...

Beautiful location - right across a pond where you cn spot elephants coming out for a drink and bath. The dining place is right beside the pond. The rooms are spartan and the food is very basic and homely. No frills but exceedingly beautiful.

I sincerely have no words to describe the kind of hospitality that we experienced at this wonderful retreat. Right from the staff to the owners and their parents, make you feel so welcome and at home here. It was a great exposure for my kids, with Anil's mother, a PhD in Botany, having a vegetable garden of her own, was...

Surrounded by brahmagiri range and forests on 3 sides, this place is one of a kind. Excellent hospitality from staff and Anil, the owner. We stayed in a cottage which overlooked the meadows and the forest with the hill in the background. Elephants and gaur visit the property and we were able to see some. There are 3 very good...

This time also JRW exceeded our expectations! We were back after our Jan visit this year and what an experience! One evening there were about 8 gaurs in the farm and suddenly they started snorting followed by strangling sound of a gaur and then a loud roar of a Tiger. In our torch light we could see all the gaurs...

Where do I even start! Really happy with the overall experience and a special thanks to Anil and his team for making our stay delightful. The mistake we did was, we planned for only 2 nights there and though we wanted to extend, they were running full. Which meant we missed out on some of the activities we could have...
