Corbett Hideaway


Spread over an area of 13 acres the Corbett Hideaway is concealed in the thick of a mango grove, where in season, the mangoes hang ripe and luscious right against the door. Exotic mixed shrubbery, alive with flowers, is crossed by pebbled paths leading to charming cottages with open sit outs. The wonderful stillness is broken only by the sound of the Kosi River and myriad birds.

Apart from the hundred and seventy six mango trees that one can count at the Hideaway, a bountiful jackfruit tree near the reception, variegated bamboo sincluding sacaram, bushes of hibiscus, rainflower, gandharaja, ticoma, raat ki rani and haemilia, azalea aplenty, guava trees which yield fruit three times a year are some of the resorts inhabitants!


The grounds are meant for meandering, loitering, meditating and playing.
The sprawling lawn gives way to the swimming pool with its languid blue waters, very therapeutic after a rigorous safari.
The poolside bar lets you beer as you float.

Even greater relaxation techniques are available close by – massage therapy by trained masseurs.
By the time you’ve worked up a wild appetite, your sense of smell will lead you to Jim’s Grill House, the thatched outdoor restaurant which lays out magnificent breakfasts, lunches and dinners. (The nights are generally wilder, with bonfires, entertainment and bonhomie.

Corbett Hideaway Indoors

The 20 feet high Gurney House named after the house Jim Corbett lived in for many years, gives you the civilized world.
Billiards, potting the red might come easier than capturing a tiger with a lens.
Lounge on sofas, while dreaming of the big cat.

Dine rather lavishly, on freshly cooked exotica, continental and Indian flavours. Or sit on the deck and listen to the Kosi while clinking glasses filled with amber.
Listen raptly to the slide show of the Chief Naturalist in the meeting hall.
References about tigers, elephants and birds are available right down the path at the library, a free and easy place where you can sip a cuppa and browse.
