We propose a natural scenario for the cosmological inflation with the nonminimal coupling term invoking compact hyperbolic extra dimensions. Thanks to the unique mathematical properties of compact hyperbolic space, the large volume of extra dimensions, which provides a natural understanding of the proper size of couplings, does not necessarily accompany with the low Kaluza-Klein scale so that the model allows a single field inflation with a scale around 1013GeV. The model fulfills all the observed data and predicts a sizable gravitational perturbation, r3×10-3.
