I must congratulate Anil and Anju for proving that nature, wildlife and people can coexist. Though the resort is in the jungle (when I say jungle, read as JUNGLE), there is every care taken to minimize the human footprint around the resort. There are strict rules in terms of noise levels and they don't allow folks not interested in wildlife to stay there.
Very relaxed atmosphere, fantastic staff with Manu and Darshan taking care of everything. There are 3 activities you must try 1. Drive and campfire at night 2. Jungle awareness trek 3. JLR safari in Nagarahole.
Regarding the rooms, the photos in the website does not do any justice to the place. Rooms are much better than what is shown in their website. The best option would be to take the all meals and activities package, this way you can enjoy the lovely Kerala cuisine as well.

This was our last stop before flying back, the only regret we have is that we didn't spend enough days in this wonderful wildlife abode.
The 2 nights we spent was spent watching animals inside the retreat, or doing wildlife safaris or taking part in some of those excellent activities offered by the retreat.
The staff was just so kind, we were so well looked after. The cook was amazing, and considering the remote location, he still managed to dish out excellent meals right through our stay.
We had an excellent campfire with Anil, his stories were mesmerising, and having him with us for the wildlife safari was perhaps the only reason why we saw the Tiger hidden in the bush. A special thanks to Anju for assisting with our itinerary and making our stay comfortable.

The location of the hotel was average. The appearance of the hotel was nice. The hotel building was made up of wooden. The destination of the hotel was excellent. There was no delay in check in and checkout in the hotel. The hotel staff’s were behaved friendly. There was no room facility in the hotel. The food was not tasty in the hotel. The activity was not available in the hotel. I had visited this hotel with my friends for personal trip. I had booked the room by online. The Wi-Fi facility was not provided. The garden and parking facility was available. The overall experience was very good. I would suggest this hotel to improve the room service, swimming pool and provide Wi-Fi facility.

Where is the best place to see wildlife in Kerala? Read on ...
The answer to that question is Jungle Retreat Wayanad in Kerala.
The location is mesmerising and we saw elephants and other animals freely roaming around in the fields ahead. The electric fencing kept the animals on the other side and humans on this.
We chose the villa as we were a group on 6, all of us stayed under the same roof and the villa being located close to the jungle, is a great option for a large-ish group.
The service is great and we felt completely at home, we were treated as friends, not just guests.
This is a great place for wildlife lovers, and you will enjoy it if you are not the stuck-up kind.

Need a private vehicle. May encounter traffic jams but not too heavy or long. Use only Highways and avoid interior Google roads. Carry food as nothing us available. Plastic bottles are not allowed inside the island. Security guys are absolutely foolish, brainless and arrogant and think they are protecting the waters from Somalian pirates (Indian citizens).
