JungleMantra was a pleasant surprise for us !! We opted for this resort purely seeing the Tripadvisor Ratings.. and boy does it justify them. Its a 25 acre property of dense Jungle and even a Lake. The hospitality is excellent - Rhea, Shailendra and Uncle make you feel at home. Food is very good. Plenty of Wildlife in the resort...

A home away from home … scratch that … this WAS my home; missing it terribly since we've come back. I’ve personally been to the UK (I am from India) and was thinking of doing an African Safari but after my trip back from Jungle Mantra I don’t think I need to look any further. The place offers you an...

There are holidays and then there are HOLIDAYS! (capitalized and ending with an exclamation mark for a whole lot of reasons). Owners Rhea and Shail Ramji (alongwith Dad Snr.

Idea of Jungle mantra resort is to create an ambience of jungle, so we found its large ground full of tall wild grass & big trees, we were told that a wild boar & jackal is often seen, but we found no trace, tales of tiger killing a cow inside the resort & python sighting are stories more or less....

This was a fantastic experience, the resort was practically in the jungle and had its own watering hole for animals, in fact we sighted jackals at the watering hole while sitting on the lounge chairs at the raised sit out overlooking the watering hole. The owners especially Uncle Rams were truly hospitable and added a personal touch, for the 3...

It was a pleasure having you at Junglemantra. It was our vision to return the barren land we had bought to it's original forested space and it's wonderful when guests appreciate the effort too. We look forward to seeing you again.

Whilst completing a project to sort and catalogue nearly a 1,000 books for the local Tala School, I was fortunate to be housed at Junglemantra. Expecting basic shared bed and board accommodation, it was a delightful surprise to be offered a guest room at less than cost by my hosts Rhea and Shailin Ramji. The rooms are individually constructed authentic...

A totally world-class eco-lodge. We stayed there in February 2016. Every aspect of our stay was delightfully perfect. The rooms and public areas are so beautifully designed, and exquisitely furnished. The food and service were both outstanding. Rhea and Shailin were away in Delhi, so we were hosted by Shailin's father. We were charmed and enchanted by his old-world courtesy....

Probably the best place to stay if you want to be close to nature. Amazing staff. Really good food. Unique experience. The location is also part of the charm. Will visit the place again. Saw two tigers in a safari.
