The Lodge: Nothing could best explain the philosophy at Pugmarks than Byron's lines. Neatly tucked away in a five acre coffee plantation are charming wooden cottage tents and wooden suites; an inviting place to be miles away from anywhere of consequence. Hemmed by the elephant corridor on one side and the thick foliage of the forest on the other, Pugmarks Jungle Lodge is Wayanad’s very own nature retreat, where being amidst nature is just a way of living. Trying to recreate the essence of being close to nature, the five acres of landscaped coffee plantation is adorned with quaint wooden and tented cottages. The lodges have been built utilizing ethnic material and the skill of local craftsmen. Classic hand carved wooden furniture, and custom made beddings, which took our seven craftsmen more than twenty days and modern bath facilities, sum up the accommodation facilities at Pugmarks Jungle Lodge.

Property's Favourite Review
Pugmarks is the place to stay if you are visiting Wayanad. We brought our pet along and our host was very kind to take care of her while we were out sightseeing. The property is beautiful and surrounded by forests, you can see different kinds of birds, flying squirrels etc. The owner organized a night safari, bird viewing walk around coffee plantation and a campfire for us. We are grateful to the owner and the staff for making our trip memorable. We will surely stay visit again someday!

We had a very great experience staying here. All over the Resort was very good. The staff working there were more concerned about the cleanliness and their hospitality was out of the level. We haven't expected that we could love this place but we did. Thank you Shinoj sir for the hospitality

Pugmark is having such an excellent ambience covered by deep forest on one side and paddy fields on the other side. Trench on the forest boarder ensures high safety.The coffee plantation and the watch tower provide a totally different experience. The food is mostly prepared by a lady at her house adjacent to the resort.A responsible tourism effort by the resort and we get homely Kerala food. The interior of the cottages are extremely good.And finally the lovely hospitality by the staff.

This cluster of cottages are just right accommodation for a day or two after Mananthawady town enroute to Nagerhole or even Thirunelli temple . Situated right at the edge of the forest this accommodation just fit between a lodge and a resort.

It's spellbound. My 3 day stay in 1st week of November 2019 with family and friends were amazing. Not a single complaint whatsoever i have faced. Location : On border of Begur Wildlife Sanctuary and Tholpetty wildlife Sanctuary this nice cozy 7-8 cottages hotel is best suited for wildlife lover. From hotel Kuruva Dweep is quite near. Management : Mr. Gopa the owner is based in Bangkok handled my booking, whereas Mr. Shinoj is in charge of the resort. Thanks both of you for your cooperation and making my stay a memorable. Property : Hotel/Jungle Resort having 6-7 cottages and 2 family room on 1st floor near kitchen. It spread over 10 acres in coffee and spice plantation on slope. Watch tower little away from property near elephant corridor is a added charm. However during our stay we didn't seen any elephant nearby. Food : We had a B/F and dinner in their restaurant and food is delicious and widely spread. Rooms : We booked 1st floor family room/Cedar Suites which is large and having sitting balcony outside. Rooms are cosy and nice. Bathroom are neat and clean. Summary : Entire team of resort were supportive and prompt. Thanks Mr. Shinoj for your kindest service and many thanks for your night safari. I will surely recommand those who wish to stay little far from city area and close to nature. Being a frequent traveller I would say Pugmarks really exceeds my expectation in every aspects. I will definately visit once again when time permits.

A holiday with entirely different experience from all that I had before. Pugmark Jungle lodge @ Wayanad is recommended by my Tour Operator, when I approached him for a holiday requirement. It's is set on the fringes on Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary in more than ten acres of wooded land. Mr. Gopa Varna, owner of the property and Mr. Shinoj the manager welcomed us warmly and led us into the spacious and well furnished rooms. Courteous staff, ready to serve without delay was indeed something that delights you on a holiday. We were lucky to watch a herd of Asiatic Wild Elephants from the watch tower in the property. Colorful and pretty Malabar Giant Squirrels can be seen everywhere in the woods. Mr. Varma took us to the Kabini river where we enjoyed an exciting Coracle Ride. Food that was served on the dinner table was so delicious. Altogether this was an exciting and refreshing experience to us. Professional and friendly approach of the staff, personal involvement of Mr. Varma and the serene atmosphere of the property makes it "the place to stay" In Wayand.

It was my second visit to wayanad and pugmarks jungle lodge after a gap of 6 years. As an indian, living abroad I always watch with a sense of fear and anguish at the fast changing landscape of Indian hill stations. Fortunately, Wayanad in Kerala, with its dense forest cover keep away mushrooming resorts and buildings. Good thing with pugmarks jungle lodge is that, they have only 6 or 7 accommodation units in its vast 10 acre forest-like property, surrounded by wayanad wildlife sanctuary itself on three sides. Lot of bird life inside the property itself with couple of nests of giant malabar flying squirrels(ones with long and colorful fluffy tails). This time, saw two rare hornbills too. I was lucky to spot a few wild elephants from the watch tower inside the property. That was quite exciting to spot wild tusker within the safety of a watch tower! They organised an activity package including a half day trek to the majestic Brahmagiri mountains. We started at 7 and trekked from the famous Thirunelli temple side. During the four hours, we crossed some lovely grass lands and evergreen forests. Spotted Gaurs and elephants(no tigers though, only some fresh tiger pugmarks!). Trek was not that hard; but an excellent way to see different types of forest cover...all green and invigorating. By 3, we were back and proceeded to the coracle ride in the lovely Kabini river, which is about 6 KM from pugmarks lodge. The riverside was simply beautiful and we enjoyed playing in the water for an hour. Driving back was again through the forests and a few elephant sightings on the way didn't disappoint us.. As a whole, this 2 nights activity package organised by Pugmarks Wayanad was worth it and highly recommended for anyone who wishes to have some safe wild adventure, irrespective of age and gender..! Their manager Shinoj is very helpful..We stayed in Cedar Camp cottage and it was cool..! Food from locally grown farm was refreshing too.

Many thanks for your exciting feedback. Yes, "pugmarks" could be the best base camp for avid brahmagiri trekkers. Our package covering brahmagiri trek and coracle ride in Kabini are really appreciated by guests..
