The hotel rooms were extremely clean, nicely furnished, excellent service, very well located. excellent breakfast, staff accomodating and helpful. I would have given an excellent rating had they had wifi around the clock. They do offer wifi from 10 am -10 pm. When you are traveling you are usually gone for most of that 10-10 time period.

My partner and I spent two nights here as part of an organised trip. Our room was charming. It was nice and big with a outside seating area and a rooftop balcony. When one staff member noticed my unsuccessful attempts to photograph the local monkeys he offered to take my camera and snap them for me. He took far better... More

When we arrived at Wildernest after a long drive, we were sorry we were only staying one night. The rooms were so spacious, cool and comfortable and the balcony on the top was a great asset. I woke up early and sat up there listening to the birds, watching the fruit bats in the distance and the monkeys close by.... More

Great breakfast, massive room and friendly staff. We had a look around about 10 hotels in the area and settled on this one. Stayed two nights. Was well impressed to have non-sweet bread and peanut butter. The bed was a bit hard but we slept well. Wifi's only in the communal area and for some reason you're not permitted to... More

The staff were helpful, the rooms were immaculately clean as were the grounds. The beds were a bit hard (even by India hard bed standard) but our room was HUGE, we could have waltzed if we'd taken the notion. It had a beautiful verandah at the top of internal stairs inside the room. It was in a good location with... More

Lovely place to stay over night. Classy rooms and perfect service rendered. The balcony ambience at night is a bliss and you could feel the charm of the evergreen forest so close by. The breakfast is yet again superb and I strongly recommend anyone to make a sure check in to this lovely Hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights on a biking tour with Kalypso Adventures (also highly recommended). This is a place you arrive at and look around saying 'wow' for a while.
