The staff were generally good and the local drives were good on the public roads, but we didn't realise that to do the main game drives in the park , where you might see tigers, it is a long ,winding, bumpy 50 minute drive to get to where the safaris go from . i wish we had chosen a place...

Our family stayed in Tree House #2, and it was a trip we will never forget. My son (8) has already asked to go back more than once! Where to start? The rooms: The tree house is comfortable and offers an amazing experience. How often do you get to stay up in the treetops? The balcony is the best part....

My family and I had the pleasure of visiting Jungle Retreat in January. My only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer. The resort offered a great mix of casual lounging and adventure. The food was great, and the staff was courteous and professional. We look forward to another trip the next time we are in the area.

I stayed at Jungle Retreat with my friend and her son in October. We chose to stay in the tree house and it was a great choice. The view was amazing. The tree house was nicely built, as nice and clean as it can be in the middle of the jungle. There are mosquito nets on all doors and windows...

I have been to India 10 times and most of those trips included visits to higher profile tourist locations such as the Taj Majal, Golconda Fort, India Gate, and Akshardham. I can truthfully say that none of these sites compare to my experience at the Jungle Retreat. My family stayed in Family Tree House 3, overlooking the vast array of...

I have been to retreat several times and have seen the property evolve and become what it is today. The food is excellent, the rooms are classy and the campus is just beautiful!. The views of the hills are magnificent and retreat is a place to unwind, relax and just take it easy !

We went there based on my friends suggestion. The place is run by family who also stays within the property. The people were friendly and food was very good. The highlight is the natural pool. The place gets very slient in the night and good for a two days family trip.

Stay was a excellent experience overall ! People who need a change in routine life must visit this place atleast once a while.. Food was indeed tasty and neatly maintained restaurant is a thumbs up..but a lilltle expensive as well. People very often get to see wild animals visiting this place.. Massage was not so soothing as i felt it...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jungle Retreat is a family-run resort, that offers a range of country-style cottages, that suit different budgets, while catering to a similar mindset. Insulated within 35 Acres of carefully cultivated and nurtured biodiversity, Jungle Retreat is a haven for wildlife and has come a long way since its beginnings in 1996 when it was barren farmland. Being family-run, service is personalised, informal yet professional. Jungle Retreat does not take Corporate bookings or all male groups, so you can be assured of an ambiance that does not remind you of work and appeals even to the single female traveller. Food is laid out in buffet-style. Menus are set twice a day after taking into consideration guest preferences and allergies. Activities like safaris and walks may be customised with the in-house activities in-charge and are organised within the parameters stipulated by the Forest Department and government agencies. Activities are subject to availability and weather conditions. Jungle Retreat has house pets (cats and dogs) that have always been with the family. Having encouraged wildlife on the campus, house-rules are to be adhered to for the safety of our guests. ... more   less
