The owners and all the staff at Jungle Hut are excellent, so friendly and helpful, we only stayed 2 nights but thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The lodges are basic but clean and comfortable, we always had hot water for the shower and we found the beds to be comfortable. The food, as others have said was excellent, we enjoy...

Vikram is an amazing host, I have visited jungle hut twice ,once with friends and once with family. Vikram ensures you feel at home when you are at jungle hut. The location is awesome. I had taken the elephant safari by the forest department, and then a jeep safari. We sighted a herd of elephants, bison, deers, the safari ended...

4 friends stayed here for 3 nights as part of a month long Birdwatching trip to Southern India. The food was the highlight here. Every single thing was homemade/grown. Having worked in the catering industry for more years than I care to remember I really appreciated the care that went into preparing every single meal. I could have lived on...

We wish we had booked our whole holiday here, Unfortunately we only stayed 2 nights. On arrival; check in was smooth and everything explained fully (something you don't get everywhere). I was sick with a bad flu and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I was brought tea as soon as they realised I wasn't well and made special...

We stayed at jungle hut for one night and it was very beautiful and scenic overlooking the hills. Deers stroll around just near your rooms and that was a fun experience. We could also spot many langurs hanging around. They help you with the jungle safaris and luckily we spotted some elephants, peacocks, wild boars and sambar deers. Food was...

Sorry Vikram and team for a delayed review from my side. We stayed for 3 nights which to me is the minimum length of stay one should have. Jungle Hut is an excellent establishment being managed and run by Vikram and his team in the beautiful jungles of Masinagudi. The breakfast lunch and dinner spreads are well thought off with...

Really an amazing place for a great weekend getaway. Very serene and calm place. The resort is about 5-6 kms from Masinagudi town. Professionally managed place and one can expect great hospitality. The food served here is simply great. Don't forget to try their homemade jams and pickles.

Kudos to the team for providing the necessary comfort for family but not over-developing in the middle of the jungle. In fact this was a case where land was given back to the nature, the property was agricultural field when it started. The rooms are comfortable and kept spic'n'span.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
After working for 25 years on tea plantations Joe and Hermie Mathias chose to retire close to nature away from the buzzing city life. They started Jungle Hut in 1986 sharing the warmth of their home and providing the unique getaway for the adventurous traveller. Through word of mouth people from far and wide visited Jungle Hut and many of them continue to patronise us.My wife and I follow in their footsteps and open our home to you.Welcome to Jungle Hut.At 3000 feet above sea level and a range of climatic conditions, our holiday estate is surrounded by a wealth of plant and animal life that thrives amidst sparkling streams and virgin jungle. Here you can trek meandering forest paths, enjoy peace and quiet under starry skies, or be bold and explore your wild side with a jungle safari.At the end of the day treat yourself to a hot shower in our cozy rooms and then relax for a while on verandahs that offer breathtaking views while ensuring your privacy. When you're hungry, come on up to our dining area, we cater buffet meals with a home cooked feel.Through all our travels we have not come across a hideaway offering such serenity. Our guests the world over have echoed this same feeling. Don't forget to bring your camera as this is one holiday you will want to remember for a long, long time. So come, stay a while, enjoy our hospitality and nature at its best.- Anushri and Vikram Mathias. ... more   less

“It was an awesome stay. Comfort, hospitality and management was definitely very good. The homemade bread and jams, pickles and chutneys were fantastic. Sharon and Mr Manish were good host. The ambience makes you feel very relaxed and gives you the jungle feel. The swimming pool was well maintained.the activities for children were amazing. Would definitely visit again for a more pleasant and long relaxed stay. Bought a pickle jar home and relished it. The night Safari exciting exciting. Children were enthralled”
