Nestled in the midst of nature

4.4/7
Posted 26 Jan, 2016

Nestled in the midst of nature this resort was a comfortable stay. Food was fresh and hot. Almost felt like we were living the jungle. Nights were cold and the early morning safari was fun. Watching elephants and deer was worthy. Sighted lots of birds though did not get to see any Tigers. Overall, a lovely experience.

Awesome resort, perfect place to stay

6.6/7
Posted 15 Aug, 2015

Perfect place to stay in between the forests. Hotels appearance, surrounding is very adventures as we expected. Rooms and washroom were nicely maintained. Food available was delicious, the peace of the forest and nature made it even more spicy and tasty. The resort have a Mountain behind it which had trekking facility. Tent rooms were available, we took in our last day which has one of the most exciting experience we ever had. Staff and management are very friendly and cooperative. It's an complete value for money. At least has 2 days for the national park trip, luckily we spotted tiger.

Good stay with decent appearance

5.4/7
Posted 1 Aug, 2015

I stayed in Pai viceroy with my family and it was relaxation trip in the month of June. I did not face any difficulty in reaching the hotel as it was convenient. The internal and external appearance of the hotel is well decorated. I ate food in the hotel was good quality and taste. There were no activities available in the hotel. The staffs were helpful and in quick response. There was no delay in check in and check out process. The room allotted was neat and clean with amenities in working condition and the washroom was kept clean. The money I spend on the hotel was valuable. I would like to recommend other travellers to stay.

A beautiful view and good stay

5.6/7
Posted 19 Jun, 2015

Reaching the hotel was very easy as it was reconnected. External appearance of the hotel was very good. The view from my room was beautiful. They had provided cottage facility to stay. Outside the cottage I could see animals roaming. It was a beautiful view to watch. At night I could not go out alone. It was a very good place for a family holiday. The overall, stay of the hotel was very comfortable. I had not faced any problem during check-in and check-out procedure. All the staff were very helpful and very friendly. The resort was a bit expensive but worth.

Great family place with good food & gentle staff

6.9/7
Posted 16 May, 2015

When we arrived, I thought that this simply couldn't be better. We came for one night and ended up staying. It has very gentle and hospitable staff. It is a small place with friendly atmosphere. We felt treated like friends, not guests The nature immersion is total - you wake up in the morning and can say hello to the Nilgiri Hills. The staff arranges guided hikes and safaris into the jungle - we went on an elephant safari, a morning hike and a waterhole hike. We saw plenty of wild elephants, monkeys, buffaloes, deer, and even a leopard while there. And the swimming pool is great for splashing out after all the wildlife spotting. Food is buffet style - the jungle honey is so yummy.

4.5/5
Posted 29 Apr, 2006

The Jungle Retreat is a great weekend getaway for those living in and around Bangalore. The location, at the foot of the Nilgiris, is breathtaking - you can see the grand hills looming in front of you as you lounge about during the day, and a carpet of stars at night - the perfect ground to test your knowledge of constellations. The cottages are warm and comfortable, and are spaced sufficiently apart from each other to provide privacy. Dont be surprised to find a deer sharing your balcony when you come out to breathe the fresh morning air. There are activities for both the adventurous and the lazy - trekking, safari and a variety of indoor games. The guided trek through the Niligiris is fairly challenging, but there are ample opportunities for photographers, even though we didnt come across any animals (except a few frightened goats!). The jungle safari will have more than its share of elephants - we were lucky enough to sight a small panther, apart from the deers and the bisons. There are also wonderful photography opportunities during the safari - lovely flowers of all hues, cacti, and butterflies. The food is delicious, the music great and the bar well stocked. Snooker, chess, fuzeball, carrom and a variety of other indoor games means you have enough to do.

Behaviour of the staff was helpful and friendly

4.8/5
Posted 7 Jan, 2015

My overall experience was good in this hotel. It was my family trip. Hotel was located outside the city and near to wild animal area. I went there in my personal transportation. Both veg and non-veg dishes were available in the room but they did not allow food in the room. Food price was reasonable. Services were fully satisfactory. Staff behaviour was helpful and friendly. I had no problem with services were there. No problem during check-in and check-out facility. Rooms were very clean and maintained. We were taking one cottage there. Pillows, bed sheet, everything were neat and clean. They were attending all our requests on time. Hotel was located in wild animal area. TV and other basic amenities were available in the room and functioning properly. We had no special view from hotel rooms but you can see animals from hotel rooms. They had hot and cold water all the times in the room. Intercom facility was not there. They provided vehicle facility for sightseeing. Swimming pool was also there. Tracking facility was also there. I stayed there for two days. Hotel was value for money paid. I will recommend this hotel for other travellers. There should be some improvement in phone facility.

Posted 18 Mar, 2006

The experience was great. We had a two nice guided trips into the Bandipur jungle. In one we saw some varied wildlife and in the other we drank in the green luxurious forest. In between the trips we were treated to sumptous meals with food that was excellent with good variety and quality. The rooms may need some maintenance but on the whole the resort is a great place to spend a weekend or a week.

Excellent place for nature-lovers who want to be close to nature, love peace & quiet, and want to be far from the madding crowds. You\'d love it! If you\'re a noisy party-lover with pals - this is not the place for you - and they\'ll tell you that! They take only parties with more than 40% women :) - family friendly - bachelor unfriendly...

Posted 30 Nov, 2009

Oh, I have no words to describe this place. Masinagudi is an awesome place and Jungle Retreat matches it with fantastic jungle experience . . We were 2 families including 3 kids (5, 4, 2 years) and we had one of the best vacations here. Masinagudi itself is a beautiful place, close to nature with forest, birds & animals and hills. Jungle Retreat cottages are very much inside the forest, on the foot of the hills. They have close to 30 acres in the forest area and have converted 10-odd acres into cottages. The cottages are spread over this area and are very neatly maintained.
