We spent an afternoon, all day, and part of the morning exploring the area within a short drive of this lodge. The highlight of all the exploration was a superb look at a Sloth Bear engaged in "hoovering up all the berries in the bushes." No one managed to get a good photo, though. We added several South Indian endemics to our growing bird list. The lodge consists of a number of spacious, well-appointed cottages capable of sleeping three, or maybe four. The hot water worked well, something that we learned to test early. WiFi is available only in the reception area and the bar, where you have to purchase a key good for 24 hours. That posed a bit of a problem given the time of our arrival and departure. Some members of our group opted for two days. I waited until the second morning before paying for the next 24 hours. The charge is minimal. The connection to the outside world was spotty. We lost web access for a couple of hours during the time when we could have used it most. Meals are served buffet style and were OK, but lacked variety. Eggs cooked to order helped make breakfast the best meal of the day. A pool attracted a couple of people, who found it too cold for an extended swim and retreated to the chairs to soak up some sun. A nice enough place in a great location.

Jungle Retreat is in a class of its own, an exceptional and outstanding place to stay. The ethos behind the wilderness camp is one of living without compromising wild animals or damaging their habitat. This is achieved whilst providing total security and safety for the guests. Mr. and Mrs. Mathias and their staff are kindness itself and one is given a genuinely warm welcome combined with an over view of the camp and its facilities. The cottages have every possible comfort provided from snowy white sheets to an ensuite bathroom with constant hot water. The French windows open onto a verandah where you can watch deer passing by (we saw a family of mongooses too) in perfect peace with only glorious bird song as a backdrop. The pool is open air, surrounded by hills and trees couldnt be better. The food is delicious, varied and beautifully cooked, served on a buffet, eaten off sparkling table ware whilst sitting in a tile roofed verandah with sides open to the beauty around. We went on bird watching walks and jeep trips into the jungle with our guide Sira a delightful friendly man who was incredibly knowledgeable about birds, animals and reptiles and seemed to have a sixth sense as well as a hearing ability to be envied. He answered all questions with great patience and obviously had a great love and appreciation for his surroundings. We saw sloth bears, elephants, porcupines, different kinds of deer, chameleons (so camouflaged I think only Sira could have spotted them ) mongooses, wild boar and an exceptional number of birds, including to our delight, a paradise fly catcher. The joy of it all is in just being there, knowing you are getting a glimpse into the habitat of animals that are truly wild. We enjoyed every moment we were there and learnt so much. I cannot recommend Jungle Retreat highly enough.

They have a dormitory style accommodation for back packers or groups but you can up grade. We rented a small stone cabin in a block of four with a veranda with an amazing view of the mountains for an extra charge. The showers were hot and the bathroom spacious. The room its self was a nice size with everything you need except wifi, that was in the main bar. After an exciting day tiger hunting in jeeps we sat around a fire pit and all chatted and exchanged stories then came bed time, A guide escorted us to our accommodation as you are not allowed out after dark, very exciting but a video shown to us explains why !.

This was amazing! A hidden gem surrounded by beautiful mountains and wildlife. We had a wonderful stay hosted by the Mathias family. They have developed this resort with care for the environment, minimising their footprint. The wildlife are free to roam the grounds, which means that guests need to be accompanied from dusk to dawn. The food was delicious and most enjoyable. The staff were well-trained, efficient and very welcoming. We hope to be back.

Visited Jungle Retreat for one memorable day/night of 28th February/1st March 2018. Reached about teatime and from the word go we experienced HOSPITALITY with a smile and quiet expertise! - Beautifully managed by each and everyone involved in the running of the place, with an ease and air of nonchalance that underlined it's every manifestation to make one feel 'at home'. It was special because the lady of the resort turned out to be the daughter of a very dear golfing friend.Although I have not had the pleasure of meeting the young owner I did know his parents when they were in planting.Salutations to Mama Matthias! Clean,airy, well appointed living space and reception area with a break away 'watering hole' and cute swimming pool. The food was delicious and menus that suited every palate- delectably put together. The architecture and furniture was quaint and natural enough to make one realize just what a minimum is required to make a place beautiful. The safari was very rewarding as we were lucky to spot a huge Bhagira and a clown of a Baloo who put on a little act for us - 5 jeeploads watching him and he digging for ants in a small anthill, - besides the usual Spotted Deer,Langur,Wild Boar,Jungle Fowl,Quail,Peacocks a baby Sambhar and quite a few birds of the feathered variety. Thank you staff and owners of this little paradise on earth!May your Tribe increase!
