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!
What we recommend to guests whilst on their stay at Corbett Hideaway:-
o The grounds are meant for meandering, loitering, meditating and playing.
o The sprawling lawn gives way to the swimming pool with its languid blue
waters, very therapeutic after a rigorous safari.
o The poolside bar lets you beer as you float.
o Even greater relaxation techniques are available close by - massage
therapy by trained masseurs.
o 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
o The 20 feet high Gurney House named after the house Jim Corbett lived in
for many years, gives you the civilized world.
o Billiards, potting the red might come easier than capturing a tiger with
o Lounge on sofas, while dreaming of the big cat.
o 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.
o Listen raptly to the slide show of the Chief Naturalist in the meeting
o 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
