Musa Jungle Retreat

Manas Tiger Reserve

From the midnight trumpet of a wild elephant to the morning call of majestic peacocks, guests at the Musa Jungle Retreat can take in the sights and sounds of the Manas National Park's wild beings from the comfort of their cottages. Situated close to the southern border of Assam's Manas National Park, this jungle resort derives its name from the local Bodo word for tiger - Musa. Musa sprawls across eight acres of lush forest vegetation in the Bansbari range, offering a panoramic view of the park's glorious flora and fauna. If guests are lucky enough, they may cross paths with a ruminating deer or two during their early morning walks. Or better yet, spot a rhino grazing on the other side of the road!

With twenty state-of-the-art cottages offering accommodation and all modern amenities, Musa appreciates and caters to the needs of all guests - domestic and foreign travellers, wildlife enthusiasts, family groups, corporate clients and weekend visitors. The cottages have peaked ceilings, and verandahs with traditional thatched roofs. The retreat also has ramps and rooms designed for the specially-abled. Spend winter evenings here humming your favourite tunes around a warm bonfire, while savouring some delectable snacks and beverages offered from the in-house multi-cuisine restaurant, Panorama. Traditional Bodo and Assamese food are available on request.
