We started summer vacation for kids and to unwind from work at River Tern. We started early morning from Bangalore and it took good 4 hours to reach the Resort We're pleasantly surprised with the location, pollution free place. Each of the cottages are facing the river, big size & well organized. I believe that's the trade mark of Jungle Lodges resorts Professional staff and yummy food! Be prepared to add few pounds with the non-stop and complimentary food served at River Tern Lodge Bad news is that you'll find jungle animals if you're really very lucky! You'll certainly come across international and rare birds, deer and few elephants. You got to be lucky to see lion, tiger or leopard.

Nice property overall. The log huts are the best pick of the lot. Food is rather simplistic though the staff do their best to make it exciting. Cleanliness is average and you can tell that the rooms are showing signs of ageing. The boat safari guide was good and did a great job of sighting leopards. However the jeep safari guide was more busy chatting a lot inside the jeep which probably reduced our chance of better sightings. It was a little disappointing

Awesome food, pleasant service, nice itinerary.
Jeep Safari is good. We can spot many animals but don't keep high hopes on spotting tiger and leopard always.
River Safari is also provided with great view of backwaters and close up view of migratory birds.

We had a fantastic experience at the hotel. Excellent location with stunning views. Highlight was the boat safari and jeep safari which was inclusive in the package.

The rooms were average, hospitality was good, rooms view were awesome but rooms are located very far and it's very difficult for old people to walk. Room service was also not good. Rainy days to walk from cottages far away to dining area was very tough. They should make some nearby arrangements for rainy days. There is no intercom facilities. For adventure and young people it's a fun resort but it's not good for elderly people. Staff behavior were good. Not advisable to visit in rainy season.
