An oasis of calm and luxury highlighted by personalised service, delectable food in a very rustic, jungle setting. Beautifully decorated and extremely well laid out spacious rooms with a lovely sitting area both inside the room and outside in the huge wraparound balcony. Special mention for having good quality coffee with a French press in the room. Almost 'invisible' turn down service with a sweet surprise every evening. WiFi was fast and worked beautifully all across the resort. We chose a full board package where every meal was a surprise, a very pleasant surprise. Each meal was a curated menu, and the entire meal package was designed carefully offering us variety ranging from Malaysian lunch to a Lebanese farewell dinner, also including a different setting and setup for our each meal, which made us feel even more special. Special thanks to the team for the very magical setup for our farewell dinner. The only downside would be the slightly slow in room service and lack of any service post 11pm. Beware of the insects and mosquitoes during the rainy season. While the food was delicious and the variety was vast, the desserts were somewhat less impressive and have room for improvement. We cannot wait to return back to this Jungle Oasis in the colder months.

We were a group of 12 friends ( 6 couples ) and on recommendations of family and friends , we decided to spend Holi weekend at Jim's jungle retreat in Jim Corbett park .The booking procedure and information exchange was very smooth thanks to Mr. Ram of Delhi office . We were informed in advance that the resort takes pride in giving a total wilderness experience . After a drive of 7 hours drive from Noida to this resort ( thanks to Holi weekend rush ) , the place looked extremely welcoming upon our arrival . The entire setting was beautiful more than I expected . Cottages are very well laid out with enough privacy, high ceilings , comfortable furniture and with ecological features .Good food being served with personalised service at all the 3 meals was a major draw. Carpet Sahib's cafe with a terrace is a super place to unwind and chit chat . There were enough areas to sit around . They organised fabulous Pool side dinner specially for us on 2 evenings ! One day we opted for bush dinner which again was a great experience and feel . On holi day the resort organised local singers and dancers and with chaat counters and an Indian cuisine lunch . The safaris were organised to Zhirna and Bijrani areas and both were equally enjoyable . Some of us did manage to spot 2 tigers and a big herd of elephants and a huge variety of birds , monkeys , langoors , deer etc . All in all it was a relaxing wonderful experience to stay 3 nights at Jim's retreat . I could not find fault with place , location , accommodation , food and service . A big applause to management and staff for a great holiday !

I stayed for three nights with my family in the family cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place has a jungle like feel to it from the cottage to surroundings and you can also hear the wild animals at night and birds throughout. It's fairly close to the Dhela entry zone. They have a mini library (lots of books on wildlife and others), a yogshala, some games to play, swimming pool etc. I really enjoyed the evening talk by the in house naturalist. The food is great especially the breakfast is outstanding. The staff is extremely nice and their hospitality is great. Just found it a tad expensive but otherwise was a great experience.

Jim’s Jungle retreat was a great find! Located very close to dhela zone, it pulls you away from the commercial tourism and gives you a flavour of the jungle. The staff is courteous and knowledgable and the food is outstanding! Our interaction with Mr Manoj was the highlight of our trip- the chief naturalist at the resort enthralled everyone with stories and information of the animal kingdom. Do not miss his slide show! The property isn’t close to the river but it’s still as wonderful and very very well managed.
