We ordered wide variety of food here including veg and non-veg, traditional kerala styled, north indian. We told them to make it spicy as we usually like spicy food, given the andhra background. They have not at all disappointed us and moreover they surprised us with tastes that matched our local cuisines. They patiently served to our asynchronous ordering methods.... More

We stayed in this hotel for a night.This hotel is located very close to Jungle entrance which was very helpful to go to boating in the early morning and also convenient to go for shopping. Bath room has a big window which gives nice view of beautiful nature. Restaurant was nice with variety of choice.

We spent two nights at the Rangerwood Hotel in Thekkady. Just at the entrance to the jungle with a splendid view of forest, swamp and mountains. We were 2 adults with four small children and can definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to spend time in Thekkady. The staff was very helpful and has good experience with jungle safaris... More

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
