Adjacent to Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary, Jungle Book property is known for its activities. Spice plantations tours for nature lovers, cooking classes for those interested in local cuisine, and elephant rides.
Offering great views of the woods, it is within walking distance from Kulem Railway Station (500 m).
After a day out, you can relax in simply furnished cottages that are surrounded by lush greenery, and feature comfortable beds and bamboo chairs.
You can enjoy freshly prepared Goan dishes at the hotel's garden restaurant.
Jeep safari or jungle walk will offer you enough opportunities to explore the rich flora and fauna of the region. At leisure, you can also head to the beautiful Dudhsagar Falls (9.5 km).
It was a very average experience. While the property itself is good, river - touching, the main attraction is 5 elephants on campus (if you are an animal lover) and plenty of greenery! It is very close to Dudhsagar waterfall and a wildlife sanctuary, walking distance from the local market (Collem) and the train station (Kulem). But the 'huts' are too closely clustered together, very small, poorly maintained, with very poor service (room was cleaned just once in the 5 days I was there, and a day after I told them!) and average food (and little Goan food except seafood as promised in the advertisement). The lack of electricity for long periods made living very difficult. Initially, it was because the storm felled some electric poles and the generator got shorted. But the electricity came back but they had some short-circuit issues, which took them 3 days to sort out. By that time another storm came up and some trees fell (no generator meant no backup at all). After nearly 24 continuous hours without power, the water ran out (because it could not be pumped). That's when I walked out (after 5 days although I was booked for 9). Incidentally, it is also back of beyond, just barely inside Goa (very near Karnataka border)! Consider only if you want a VERY simple, rustic, natural getaway, and if you want to visit Dudhsagar waterfall. The location and property is, however, very lush, green and beautiful. It was small, ill-ventilated, too rustic, poorly maintained, with very minimal furniture (just a bed and a broken bamboo rack)

I heard mixed reviews about this hotel, we were group of 12(4 family) and when we reached it was 11:30 night and service guys were really helpful and we carried dinner with us and they were helpful arranging everything .And next day we checked out late and they didn't even disturb us saying we have exceeded check out time .they were very helpful.it's not remote place and if you reach early you can find restaurants nearby and also you can order at this place as well.

Rooms are nice, clean and well naturally surrounded. There is no power backup, we spent whole night and almost half day without electricity.
Kind of wild stay
