Jim's Jungle Retreat,
Corbett National Park
Info : Jim's Jungle Retreat
In beautiful Uttarakhand, Jim’s Jungle Retreat is built using mud and thatch in a traditional Gujar style on the border of Corbett National Park. A team of passionate people with qualifications in wildlife management operate the retreat, collaborating regularly with government bodies to conserve the surrounding tiger habitats. The award-winning facilities make every effort to minimise environmental impact and the management is heavily involved in community initiatives within the Corbett region.
Most people come to Corbett for the outstanding jeep and elephant safaris and tiger spotting opportunities. You can also participate in heritage walks, go fishing or cycling, or spend a night sleeping in the jungle – an experience unique to Corbett.
There are eighteen residences in total, among them lodges, cottages, and safari tents. The jungle lodge is our personal favourite, elevated fifteen feet above the ground with gorgeous 360-degree views from cool, tiled wraparound verandas. They are spacious and elegant, furnished with opulent fabrics inspired by the Raj era. There’s also a swimming pool, Aranyam spa, nursery, dining area, lounge, and fair-trade boutique on site.
Come here to be affected and inspired by the enthusiasm that the team at Jim’s Jungle Retreat has for the environment and wildlife. This is a great offbeat place to stay while exploring Corbett National Park, and comes highly recommended.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
