Jungle hut Masinagudi reviews-We will help you to decide
We went during the first week of March; the period signifies with scorching and dry weather in around Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The whole forest area was dry and dotted with changed landscape. Jungle hut resort is surrounded by mountains which make it unique. You live in the middle of the woods surrounded by mountains, and that experience is very different and satisfying
Jungle hut located at the corner of the forest was relatively cooler. We felt very close to nature with wildlife near you (Jungle Hut is home to a herd of deer). Evening and Nights are usually filled with animal growls and noises.
The rooms – are nicely done and spacious and comfortable with no TV. The exterior view is great in every room. A standard movie room to watch your favorite flick over the drink. There is ample space in the resort for kids to roam and play. You won’t find the internet here which means more time with family and loved one.
The let downs
Over priced rooms for the available facilities- We opted for premium rooms during our stay. However, we faced a severe issue of ACs not working in our rooms due to peak summer electricity load. We passed our feedbacks to the host and hoped other guests won’t face this issue again.
