Jim's Jungle Retreat is a wildlife speciality 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 sumptious mealsyou’re 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 of capturing the area's history.
These include jungle cottages and bungalow-style lodges borrowing from their architectural past, with large wrap-around verandas, a living area, bedroom and ensuite bath.
Luxuriant fabrics, fine linen and subtle detailing create a comfortable and 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, and each uniquely styled residence inspires charm and exclusivity.
