Wild Brook Retreat is a bit off road with katchha jungle road and crossing small rivers to reach at. With very suuportive staff, very tasty food and nice location the overall experience is good. We enjoyed our stay.
Dont go to this hotel. They charge Rs. 6800 per room per night and provide very less things. Hotel staff told that they show wrong things on website to attract the costumer. There is no wifi, no TV, very dim light etc.
Wild Brook is in the middle of nowhere, which is great for nature lovers. It has basic amenities (a cold water shower, one light bulb in the room). But the wonderful staff make up for much, they serve you breakfast, lunch and dinner, whatever time your want, which is included in the price (around $125 for three people). From there you can make long walks up the hills or along the river bed. We saw two martens from our front porch. Rajaji Park is 45 minutes away. The staff can arrange several activities (safari, guided walk). We were there during a cold winter spell. The staff made a big fire outside every evening, but the rooms were freezing cold and we missed a hot shower!
My friend Sybil and I were on a one month trip touring around India. We absolutely loved our stay at Wild Brook Retreat! The rustic cabin and rugged river valley were a welcome respite from the chaos of the cities. We enjoyed the sounds of birds and saw so many butterflies and flowers in November after the monsoon season. We stayed 2 nights and did a safari. We walked around the river valley, visited the local temple, and explored the footpaths. I could have stayed a week. The staff, Rajendra and Satpal, were both very sweet and attentive. The home cooked meals were delicious, and we enjoyed having them served to us on our front porch. I will definitely come back here on my way to or from Rishikesh!
I booked this retreat based on their website. I never knew how difficult it was to get there. Only on seeing the description of Trip Advisor did I become aware of the 8 km ride through a river bed. Our room was very basic with a hole in the wall. dont know what creepy crawlies would come in. The food was simple, dal, one sabzi, roti and rice. Breakfast was an omlette and parathas. maybe it is okay for young people looking for some sort of adventure, but quite a come donw for older people who want some basic comfort. The cost was almost equivalent to $100 per night. The taxi ride there and back as also pretty expensive.all in all, not somewhere I would go again. Rajaji National Park also is a huge disappointment. all you see is a few deer and nothing else while traveling in an open Jeep (Gypsy) eating dust for 2 hours.…
