A Museum of Stories II
What draws us to a hotel to be a part of RARE are the captivating stories about the destination, the hotel and the owner. When you visit a RARE hotel, more often than not a big takeaway are the conversations with the hosts. Being rooted in the destination, you are regaled with tales of yore and the present. Whether it is the story of a real-life Mowgli at Sinna Dorai’s Bungalow in Kadamane, or how Sheherwali cuisine came to be part of Bari Kothi in Murshidabad, each RARE hotel is a repository of tales, a Museum of Stories…

Jim’s Jungle Retreat, Corbett, Uttarakhand
.
.
‘Seek the tiger, find the jungle’ is the philosophy that Jim’s Jungle Retreat lives by. The Retreat’s commitment to green and sustainable tourism is reflected in the first interaction that a guest has with the lodge, where on arrival every guest is introduced to the Corbett jungle and the balance it creates. Daleep Akoi’s deep relationship with the jungle began as a child and it continues with the lodge acting as a catalyst to help city dwellers fall in love with the forests. Jim's Jungle Retreat combines luxury with a concept that borrows as much from the forest bungalows as it does from the enduring architectural legacy of the local villages with rustic, simple yet stylish cottages without giving up on any of the modern comforts and privacy.
