The hotel is situated at the entrance of the Periyar National Park (about 100m up the road from the hotel) so you can just walk into the park. Because of the location of the Periyar National Park main gate and the fact that the front of the hotel is almost on the road, there is constant traffic and noise of... More

Let's get this out of the way: the treehouses are not, in fact, in actual trees. They're perched on very tall fake trees that look kind of real in a Disney sort of way. The wildlife views from said treehouses, however, are 100% legit. The rooms overlook the Periyar Tiger Reserve, and we spent hours on our porch watching monkeys,... More

Our guide suggested this place for Kerala massage. Initially when we entered looking at the reception, lobby and the way the staff explained about massage, felt really nice. I booked the best massage for my parents costing Rs.3500 each. We reached the place at the time they mentioned, I found that the massage room was not at all up to... More

The feelings of you being hosted as a guest you don't get it, too crowded not suitable for relaxing stay.. Though rooms are spacious, ambience is More of a lodge kind than a resort. If you are looking for place to crash in not worried much about ambience this is the place.

Then after my request they upgraded me to top floor. It was far better n u can expect some privacy there. Food quality of... More

Good nice spacious rooms. The rooms have wooden furniture and antiques which are huge and add charm to the rooms . The bathrooms are clean and the view from the balcony is superb in the morning. The hotel is middle of the city so you can roam around the city and visit the martial art center or Kathakali dance center... More

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
