This was our last minute arrangement. One of our hotel staff has recommended Ranger Wood for Ayurvedic massage. We walked in and managed to book a slot for me and my husband. At first, the staff has explained types of services available and options. After confirming the time and types of massage, we were asked to pay the full amount... More

I had booked in the month of December. Their rooms are not sound proof. At 4:30 pm, I was trying to take nap. Kept on struggling to sleep for half an hour. Irritated with the outside noise complained the manager he apologised saying till 5 pm we have this disturbance! Else the rooms are big and clean. But the rooms... More

A very pleasant stop on our roadtrip. The staff were wonderful, lending us umbrellas for the rain, and the food up to India's high standards. It was interesting wandering around the shops and lovely to wake up with the monkeys playing and watching the wildlife. Having WiFi was good though you had to sit outside for a signal. The rooms...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The view of the jungle from the rooms was breath taking. Especially in the morning when the mist had covered the area. It is right next to the entrance to periyar. The staff were friendly. The room decor was good; though the bathrooms needed an upgrade. The restaurant was good. The swimming pool was... More

This Hotel is a very small property, no hotel grounds, nothing. The entrance is from the main road. Furniture is very old and nothing special in the room except Bed and a a Sofa. The only good thing is the view of the Jungle from the room balcony. THE TELEVISION DO NOT HAVE A SET TOP BOX AND YOU CAN... More

I had been here for a kerela style ayurvedic massage on my guide's & restaurent's recommendation. Massage room appeared like a closed box with a cushion bench. No soothing music, No ambience to suit the massage instead we could hear load noise of guests who come to stay here. Not at all relaxing. Not worth money too !!! Pls avoid

Travelling with a friend in the South of India and away for nearly 4 weeks, this was one of our worst stays. From the bullying style when explaining the massages available when we checked-in; the very dated and basic room; no air-conditioning; the bathroom that had no toilet paper in it when we first arrived and no surface, hook, ledge...

At the recommendation of my driver I walked into this place to ask for a price list of massages and spa services. There were two well-built men in reception; one seated and one standing. The one standing immediately tried to get me to take a seat as he insisted the spa services all require an explanation and a meeting. I... More
