“A home in the jungle”
Reviewed 27 April 2011

jungle hut provides the right ambience for a forest resort while making sure that one's "creature comforts" are not lost sight off. Great service and hospitality with good wholesome food.
The resort is neighbouring the forest and has a solid rustic charm.
The owners live on site and personalise the experience.

This is a friendly place with excellent service. The layout has been done as close to nature as possible which is great. My only critique is that the standard rooms are in need of some updating and refurbishing. That said, I hear all the newer rooms are great. This place is also especially great for families and larger groups.

My wife wanted to stay in a tent and that's what we did at Jungle Hut on April 8. It was maddeningly hot in the afternoon -- this was summer after all -- but as evening approached the temperature dipped and it was truly magical to slip into our tent and fall off to sleep to the accompaniment of the trilling of the nocturnal birds.

We were woken by the Masinagudi Cicada Philharmonic Orchestra early the next morning and a good thing too -- we had scheduled a two-hour trek up the mountains with the Jungle Hut guide.

The trek was fun -- and we worked up a good appetite too so the sumptuous breakfast laid out for us afterwards went down smooth and easy.

After breakfast we shifted to a regular cottage room -- my wife may like to rough it out but I want my conveniences. The room was just right: spacious, airy, clean.

I went for a swim later in the pool, took a brief nap, then we headed to the dining area for lunch. The meals are one of the highlights of the stay at Jungle Hut -- we just couldn't help tucking in like there was no tomorrow.

We played Scrabble, we read -- my wife even borrowed a book from the Jungle Hut collection to take to Ooty where we spent the rest of our 10-day vacation. We also watched the IPL matches live on the big screen, we went for long walks, and we took plenty of pictures. Want to watch the slide show?

Team Jungle Hut went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed every minute of our brief stay. Thank you, Vikram and Anushri Mathias, Malvika Bhandary, Aniket Gupta, and Falgun.

Our trip to Jungle Hut was awesome. The hospitality was par excellence, the food superb, the staff helpful and friendly, the ambience wonderful. A must for all those who want a 2-3 day getaway.
Ms. Mathias was the perfect hostess who, with her staff, made our stay superb. The children, who were aged between 9 and 16, were well looked after by the staff and therefore for the parents, it was a hassle-free holiday!!
We definitely highly recommend Jungle Hut to anyone who wants a holiday for a couple of days. It is value for money.

Room Tip: Simple, classy, yet homely!
