Every aspect of my trip was wonderful made possible by the fine people who run the establishment; John, Roshan, and Neel. I stayed for three days and not a moment was wasted from the safaris through the forest to seeing elephants up close and personal on the property itself. Gorgeous mountains, beautiful scenery, the aesthetics were great. Highlight may have...

I enjoyed staying at this resort for 2 nights. It was the perfect break after traveling in busy cities and staying at hostels. Breakfast was served daily and there were plenty of delicious options. Best of all, the watering hole was right outside. I saw baby elephants drinking water in the mornings. So serene! More than anything, I deeply appreciate...

I stayed in Wild Haven for three nights recently on my first trip to India. John, Neel and Rusheen and all the staff could not have been more welcoming - both in the emails planning my visit and while staying in Wild Haven. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable with lots of hot water. The food was very tasty...

The accommodation at Wild Haven is simple, basic and clean. There are 4 rooms in one block (two up two down) and a cottage with more accommodation with the main single story building in between. We stayed in a first floor room with a covered veranda overlooking the beautiful countryside. The only distinction between the scrub and the jungle and...

Had a fantastic time at Wild Haven. This is certainly a home away from home. The only option i would choose if I'm traveling to the Nilgiris. The constant supply of black coffee with the service hasn't changed over the years.

We first chanced upon Wild Haven a decade or so ago on one of our numerous rides to the Jungles and have been regular visitors since, though we've tried out almost eighty percent of the resort's Masinagudi has on offer. What I can say with certainty is that it has maintained its charm and its quality of service down the...

I came for two nights and stayed for five. Wild Haven is an awesome spot, way out in the bush, and so silent and calm, yet I was never bored. What struck me most was, in chatting to other guests, so many people told me that they come year after year. Roshin gave me solid advice and recommendations about the...
