About
Description
Clarification: The recent sealing of a few resorts in the Masinagudi area took place on the background of a Supreme Court order dated 9th Aug 2018. Pursuant to the order, relevant documents were submitted to the ...More District Collector and majority of the buildings pertaining to Jungle Hut were found to have the appropriate approvals. In this background Jungle hut is presently operational with the use of the said buildings. This is for your information. After working for 25 years on tea plantations Joe and Hermie Mathias chose to retire close to nature away from the buzzing city life. They started Jungle Hut in 1986 sharing the warmth of their home and providing the unique getaway for the adventurous traveller. Through word of mouth people from far and wide visited Jungle Hut and many of them continue to patronise us. My wife and I follow in their footsteps and open our home to you. Welcome to Jungle Hut!
