Jim’s Jungle Retreat combines luxury with a concept that borrows as much from the forest bungalows as it does from the enduring architectural legacy of the local villages. Daleep Akoi in his mission to give guests an experience of the forest he loves has conceptualized 18 cottages and lodges that are rustic, simple yet stylish, allowing maximum exposure to the outdoors without giving up on any of the modern comforts and privacy. The reception is a thatched pavilion open on both sides with a shop on one side and a board that prominently displays the sightings of the day! Well-tended paths lead to independent cottages at ground level, each with an entrance porch and a verandah, tucked under shaded trees.
The air cooled thatched restaurant, theatre and lounge are set close to the swimming pool all of which are set slightly away from the cottages and lodges and sums up as a place full of life and activity. The lounge is perfect for lazy afternoons to catch up on your reading – explore their library that is full of books on wildlife and forests.
