While looking for AC rooms in thekkady we came to Rangerwoods. We were offered a discounted rate for the tree house (which was still much more expensive than any of their other rooms) and decided to stay there. Our first impression was good since the tree house were quite new, clean and spacious. However since we were a little away... More

We stayed in one of their tree houses which have just been completed. This was ideal for us as we like photographing animals. The tree house, as the name suggests, is at tree top height and was like having our own private hide. We photographed black langur monkeys, woodpeckers, kingfishers, sambar deer and more; things that usually won't let you... More

My wife and me stayed in this hotel in February, 2014. The view from the balcony was really fantastic - especially during the early morning and in the afternoons. The room was spacious, well decorated and very comfortable. One can see the forest even from the large glass window in the attached bath. Coupled with the fact that the hotel... More

We stayed here 2 nights. Initially we'd been given a rather smelly room but after the helpful staff found they couldn't remove the odour, they moved us to another room which was just fine. It was large but nothing special. It did the trick: providing a reasonable place for sleeping. Although, it must be said that the view from the... More

What a wonderful surprise this hotel was. The unique and spacious lobby and the wonderful huge bedrooms with park views was beyond our expectations! Reception staff very efficient and friendly. Next door to tiger reserve. The only negative thing was the breakfast. Staff were very slow to replenish empty food containers and many items were stale. I would definitely recommend... More

We got rooms for good prices on the first floor, looking on to the forest area. At night you might see some wild buffalos too from the balcony. The rooms are neat, big and everything was functional. Awesome experience.

This hotel is attractive and well situated. There is a lot of helpful staff around and the lobby though small is quite welcoming. We had room 202 which overlooked the preserve, is very spacious and clean. We negotiated the rate down to 4900 rps or $82, from the proposed rack rate of 10,000 rps, for the three, not including breakfast.... More

Once you pay the payments. Rooms much better options you get in thekkedy . We went as family and Rooms given were worst. Out of... More

The location was the key selling point for me. Just a short time away from the entrance of the reserve, it is ideal for the mad rush for the morning boat ride. I cannot comment on the Spa and the dining experience. The staff overall was very nice and gracious. The only thing that ticked me off was the front... More

The staff and management are very professional, courteous, and know how to look after their guests needs and demands. During the Xmas-New Year rush season, they were extremely patient with the mob of gUests checking in & out every day. Service and pride in their jobs starts at the top and trickles all the way down to every employee. We... More
