Place for the Soul! Place for the Soul!

by Aurko-Tuneer on

During diwali we planned our 15th visit to our second home Jungle Retreat Wayanad. As usual we reached at 1 and stayed in JC3 which gives a spectacular view of the farm and the forest. After a delicious lunch we were up in the watch tower overlooking the waterhole. I really love spending time in the watch tower as I can hear so many different sounds of nature. This time we were gifted by close-mouthed call of tiger multiple times. During evening drive we saw a huge elephant cropping the grass. This summed up our Day 1. The next day after breakfast we went to trek with Anil uncle. Every time you trek with him, you learn something new. Its an unforgettable experience! We crossed several watering holes, streams present around the farm. Finally we reached a water body behind the abandoned house. There we saw pugmarks of the female tigress. Uncle told that she must have laid down in the water. The massive size of the paw was very evident. All of a sudden, a growl came from behind us that reverberated across the forest. My heart skipped a beat. We all huddled in a group and then we heard another growl. In no time we retreated our steps back to our cottage. We had refreshing lime juice. After dinner Anil uncle came and said that he could smell elephants nearby. We then went with Uncle to the watch tower from where we saw the elephants. I hit the sack later in the night very happy and satisfied. Next morning from our sundeck we could see the same herd happily grazing. We then went for bird watching with Manu uncle and saw many different kinds of birds that were brilliant to see and photograph. Then the time came to return back. With a heavy heart we bid goodbye to Anil uncle, Manu uncle, Kumar uncle, T.Anil uncle and left. We cant wait to return back ASAP.

Visited the property after reading lots of positive reviews on trip advisor , on recent Wayanad tour. Went there after spending 3 nights at vythiri village resort. While traveling to the destination, sighted elephant on thirunelly road. On arrival Manu and Kumar came to receive and welcomed us. We were family of 3 , my wife, daughter and me. As per request we were given last jungle cottage from where view of jungle from sit out is fabulous.Manu told us recent sightings . Had a good Kerala style lunch. In afternoon there were monkey and barking dear call just in front on road side part of jungle moving towards left, but no sightings. In night a heard of elephants came to the waterhole and enjoying whole night. Manu took us for night drive where also we sighted elephants. In night at 4 am I woke up with a tiger roar. Even other guests heard it. Came out but it was very dark. Went to morning jlr safari at nagarhole which was not so productive. Had booked 3 jlr safaris but did only 2 as it is not well organised as in other tiger reserves or kabini. Drivers just roam here and there with out waiting at probable places.Elephants can be sighted on Mysore Road also. Its better to avoid nanachi gate safaris.It was better to stay in jungle retreat for true jungle feel. One of the evening Anil went to lock upper rooms and heard groul hence he came to take all the guests and manu was in front. Just behind the last cottage as he flashed light there was huge tigress sitting just outside electric fence which had gap big enough for the majestic animal to charge. Manu didnt took risk and ask everyone to move down. It was a thrilling experience which we will not get in safari or any jungle resort. There are 2 watch towers. One is just overlooking the water hole and new one is in jungle where chances of sightings are more. We sighted elephant from new watch tower. Went for a jungle walk with Manu where we saw fresh pug marks of tiger and as on elephant was standing ahead had to turn back.Did 3 night drive but sighted only elephants.Overall a true adventurous experience. Food was fabulous made by a young cook. All Manu, Anil, Kumar were hospitable right from first to last day. Stayed for 3 nights and 4 days. Even while booking Anju madam took care about booking & by asking about food preferences on the day of arrival. Thirunelli temple is just 4-5 kms. My daughter sharvari didnt wanted to come back while checking out. Will surely return back to this unique property amidst jungle.

Much needed Respite from Lockdown.. Much needed Respite from Lockdown..

This was our 14th visit to our most beloved second home and it was one of a kind for sure. First of all, it was such a big relief to see the lush greens of the forest than the dull colours of the city after the pandemic and boring lockdown. Proper precautions like temperature check, using mask are being followed at the Retreat, so we felt absolutely safe there. After lunch when we were relaxing on our sun deck of JC3 we saw the deer run fast. We became alert and rushed to the watch tower. The other guests present there had seen the tiger. We missed the opportunity of seeing her. Next day while having breakfast we heard monkeys giving alarm calls and we ran to the watch tower. We all stayed quiet and could listen to the alarm calls of barking deer and sambar deer. Suddenly, Manu uncle exclaimed "TIGER!!" and we saw him in front of the abandoned cottage. We were elated!! Our trek was eventful as we heard the tiger growl, a blood curdling roar and the elephants trumpeting! We enjoyed the evening drives, saw several gaurs, elephants, mouse deer, black naped hare. We were amazed as ever by the knowledge shared by Anil uncle. Manu uncle is like our elder brother, always there for you. We have enjoyed all the tasty meals by Kumar uncle. Anju auntys heartful welcome in our second home always makes us want to go back ASAP.

Great experience during pandemic! Great experience during pandemic!

My friend and I at stayed at Jungle Retreat recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Despite the challenge that the Covid was, the retreat handled it really well. Sanitizers placed, temperature checked on arrival and staff with masks on 24*7, taking every precaution with highest of safety and hygiene practises including maintaining social distancing put our concerns at rest. Great food, excellent service and awesome sightings of deer, Bisons, wild dogs, peacocks and scores of birds right from the luxury of our room . Ambience : You feel like you have stepped in a well maintained tropical forest the moment you step into the resort. Room : Extremely clean with soothing furnishing that blend well with the outside nature Food: Would recommend the local fish curry - was lip smacking. Appam with Kadale curry is a must try not forgetting the chicken biryani One of its kind. Bonfire by a running water body combined with the local succulent chutney prepared in a jiffy right in front of us and stories of the wild to carry back home is an experience by itself. Service : The warmest staff ensured absolutely excellent service - a big shout out to Anju, Anil, Kumar, Manu, Reena and the chef!. (sorry can't remember his name) We went for a night drive with Anil ad Manu and was astonished to site a tigress and her cubs relaxing on the road . and few kilometres away got to see the famous elephants Broken Tail and his assistant . What more can one ask?? All this in the most affordable price offered by Jungle Retreat!! Although we stayed for one night only, the experience was just AWESOME and I promised myself a longer stay when I visit them next

Wild experience during the pandemic! Wild experience during the pandemic!

It has been 9 years since we started going to Jungle Retreat and it only gets better and better. This has been my second home for a very very long time and I am proud that Ive got a chance to grow up in a property like this. Starting of with Mr. Anil,he is an amazing person and very knowledgeable and is always more than happy to share it with others. Since day 1, he has always put in his best to help us get sightings and will ensure the safety and security of guests no matter what. Moving on to Mrs. Anju, Shes always had great memory in remembering what the guest likes and what not and makes sure to follow them during the next visit of the guest. She goes out of her way to make her guests happy and this is what makes the property very homely. Then comes the team, Mr. Bishnu and Mr. Kumar who are responsible for the food and service have always made fantastic food and do not repeat the same food over and over again. They try new dishes which for some reason is so good that you can never get enough of it. Mr. Kumar has always been serving with a smile of his face which clearly indicates how much he loves his job. Mr. Manu, Ive never seen and am pretty sure will never see a more enthusiastic naturalist like Manu. Like Mr. Anil, he is very knowledgeable and happy to share and like Mrs. Anju, he will make you feel very homely. He always has a very happy vibe to him which is so contagious. Last but not the least, Ms. Reena ensures our rooms are always spic and span and goes out of her way to ensure we have a comfortable stay. The place is very very hygienic and as soon as you enter, you are given sanitizer and your temperature is checked. They ensure that they follow all the Norms during the pandemic. This is not the review of one stay in particular, it is the review of every single stay since the last 9 years. You are sure to come back to this place again and again. Hats off to the team!!
