Jim's Jungle Retreat is a wildlife specialty lodge bordering India’s premier national park-Corbett Tiger Reserve. Nestled between the Himalayan foothills in the north and the ancient Shivaliks in the south, the reserve forest extends over 1300 square kms of grassland, forest, rivers and lakes.
In this fascinating landscape, we offer acres of lush refuge, forest and mountain vistas, countless bird-spotting opportunities and instinct-sharpening walks and safaris.
At the retreat, spend hours by the pool, at the jungle-inspired chemical-free spa or on your private verandah. A gastronomic experience awaits you with organic farm-to-table meals, cuisines from the Kumaon, the Raj and from the newabi kitchens of Rampur. Birdsong, privacy, and sumptuous meals are your personal luxuries here.
Reflecting the area’s Raj-era legacy and that of the wandering pastoral tribes of the Van Gujjars, we offer three accommodation styles designed with a focus on aesthetic, comfort and local history of the area.
These include jungle cottages and bungalow-style lodges borrowing from their architectural past, with large wrap-around verandas, a living area, a bedroom and en-suite bath.
Luxuriant fabrics, fine linen and subtle detailing creates a comfortable and a sophisticated environment. Century-old lithographs and plates of Indian wildlife scenes frame the walls. The furniture is designed with extensive use of local craftsmanship and material with each residence uniquely inspiring charm and exclusivity in itself.
