About The Lodge

Jim's Jungle Retreat-Corbett

Jim's Jungle Retreat is an eco-conscious wildlife speciality lodge located on the southern periphery of India’s showcase wildlife park Corbett Tiger Reserve. Nestled between the Himalayan foothills in the north and the ancient Shivaliks in the south, Corbett Tiger Reserve extends over 1300 square kilometers of scrub, grassland, sal forests, rivers and a lake, varying between 400-1210 meters above sea level. Established in 1936, and once nobility’s favored hunting ground, the sanctuary protects over 50 mammals, including the Royal Bengal tiger, the Asiatic elephant and the shy sloth bear, along with nearly 600 hundred domestic and transitory birds, and remarkably rare reptiles.

At this forest's edge, Jim's Jungle Retreat offers 18 sophisticated lodges and cottages in 15 acres of lush refuge, with forest and mountain vistas, countless bird-spotting opportunities, instinct-sharpening walks and safaris, and hours by the pool or on your private verandah. The retreat borders the southern forests of Corbett and a seasonal river that comes to life during the monsoon. Through the year, the riverbed and the surrounding forests host herds of grazing deer, root-digging wild boar, noisy jackals and the occasional tiger or leopard. During their seasonal migration, elephant herds trumpet their arrival and are sighted often on jungle walks.

We offer three accommodation styles, totaling 18 residences, designed with a focus on aesthetic, comfort and of capturing the area's history. These include jungle cottages and lodges borrowing from their architectural past - old forest bungalows and rest houses of the Raj era. Luxuriant fabrics, fine linen and subtle detailing create a comfortable and sophisticated environment. Century-old lithographs and plates of Indian hunting 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.

Our dining area, inspired architecturally by a Gujjar thatch and mud hall, is open to the forested surroundings and offers a mix of cuisines from the days of the Raj and local Kumaoni delicacies. A barbeque by a bonfire, end of safari chai by the forest, snacks served by the pool and exclusive private dining options are part of your gastronomical experience. After a long safari, a jungle walk or just a lazy afternoon, have your muscles worked out by our therapists trained in traditional deep tissue and Ayurvedic relaxation techniques. You will also learn about various organic and kitchen produce-inspired recipes for skincare and general wellness.
