Amazing place in the midst of jungle, would like to visit again. The best part is that you can watch deers from the comfort of your bed. Food and hospitality is also good..My kid had a wonderful time watching the deers..

I visited the resort with wife and 2 kids, below 5 years. I was not charged for kids stay or food. The FOOD was excellent and resort managers ensure they make it as per guest preference. For example they had asked me if I was alergic to any food before my arrival. We also reached a little late on day...

The management (Sheryl, Ranjit) and the staff went all out to ensure a comfortable stay for the group, for our 2N/3D...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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.At 3000 feet above sea level and a range of climatic conditions, our holiday estate is surrounded by a wealth of plant and animal life that thrives amidst sparkling streams and virgin jungle. Here you can trek meandering forest paths, enjoy peace and quiet under starry skies, or be bold and explore your wild side with a jungle safari.At the end of the day treat yourself to a hot shower in our cozy rooms and then relax for a while on verandahs that offer breathtaking views while ensuring your privacy. When you're hungry, come on up to our dining area, we cater buffet meals with a home cooked feel.Through all our travels we have not come across a hideaway offering such serenity. Our guests the world over have echoed this same feeling. Don't forget to bring your camera as this is one holiday you will want to remember for a long, long time. So come, stay a while, enjoy our hospitality and nature at its best.- Anushri and Vikram Mathias. ... more   less
