My first stay at JLR. The property is very well maintained. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The manager at the property is also helpful. Sakrebyle has a lot of activities for kids which was a major relief considering that I was travelling with my 3 year old son. The best part of the resort is the elephant interaction. Although the elephants are given bath and the interaction is on the other side of the street, the Mahouts bring the elephants near the stay which makes it convenient for the kids to get the view of the elephants. The food is tasty and has adequate options. Overall I would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling with kids.

The stay was very good and decent food with basic amenities will definitely visit again, many thanks for organising.
All the amenities provided was simply excellent. Food and quality of cottage was very good and satisfying.
Best place for one day stay.
Very nice place and we enjoyed the stay. Staff were very courteous and great service!. Unfortunately we couldnt go for both nature walk and trekking due to rain. Thanks to both JLR and Trailroot!!

Sakrebyle nature camp is on par with any other Nature camps across karnataka.
The major attraction of this camp is the Elephant camp right opposite to the property. It is indeed a unique & different experience to interact with Elephants so close...you often can not get so close to this mammoth mammal and touch, bathe them.
The nature camp as such is a nice place to relax & be amidst nature. Activities section surely needs an upgrade...There is a place for Badminton / Volleball, but neither the ball, shuttle rackets are available. The huge net put up for people to relax is in a really bad shape & is worn out. The management need to seriously look into setting up the Activities up in shape soon. Saw many couples & families just sitting, wondering what to do, after a walk & trek!
Food was amazing, the caretakers & guides are so friendly & caring.

Had an experience of being at jungle, no basic amenities include water. The manager is hardly available at the premises to check for facilities and to provide customer service. For any queries the response was "coming soon..."
The location is very good and very badly maintained. Not at all value for money.
Staff are very co-operative and food was good.

Good Place to be inside the forest.
Good hospitality by the staff.
Food was ok. Could have been better.
Need to make kitchen and store a hygenic place.
Tented dormitary needs some rennovation to secure from insects, bugs and reptiles. Also provision for few more charging points.
Would have been a much better place to enjoy if provisions were provided for few more activities like indoor games, swimming pool, a better court (sand court) for volley ball, and badminton court.
Enjoyed our stay. Nice hospitality. All the staff are very friendly and they provide good support. It was great to spend time around the Elephants. Its nice to see the animals are being taken good care off. Definitely a good place for a family get away.
Excellent Resort. Staff service is Very Good. Escort to Trekking and Elephant Camp is Very Good. The Food is excellent and very tasty. Had a very Enjoyable stay.
Excellent Service Provided. It was wonderful and memorable experience. I would surely recommend my friends to visit the place.
Thanks Trailroot for making our trip a fantastic one!!
