Had one of the rooms above the front ones (I think they are called standalone jungle cottages and are probably the best for viewing) but my room was very large with 2 bedrooms and had huge balcony where you can sit and see everything. There is also a verandah section for relaxing and viewing across the valley floor where you...

Unbelievable experience. We were there three days and nearly lost count of the amount of elephants we saw. A bit of a downer on the last day as we were out on safari looking for tigers and missed a sighting of one just outside the retreat! Still, we saw loads of wild animals, had great food and met some great...

We had an amazing time at Jungle Retreat. The setting is beautiful and being able to watch the occasional elephant make their way to the watering pool was a real treat. The staff are lovely and we loved our log cabin. The food was excellent too. However, the best thing about Jungle Retreat is the guide, Manu. He was so...

This was my 12th visit and my 7th solo visit. Leaving home at 5am I reached by about 11am ,fun begins right after arrival as the other parts of the nilgiris was dry but it was still quite green around. Location of the place is mind blowing, service not to be mentioned as 5* won't give it justice. Imagine you...

Our stay was incredible! We couldn't fault a thing! Putting a watering hole at the end of the resort allows you to see a whole range of animals in their natural environment and aside from a leopard there wasn't much we didn't see or hear whilst staying here. We were treated to a female Lion roaring at a tusker just...

This review has been long overdue since this is the 4th time I have stayed in this property with my family.

Dear Guest, To see the Tigeress on your last 2 visits, and then to see her with her 3 cubs - that is indeed something special. The Tigress and her cubs are frequently seen these days in and around the farm and we are delighted that you were able to experience it during your visits. Hoping to host you again......
