When you think of a property managed by a Forest Department, this is surely not what you have in mind. I have been to many forest rest houses in several places, but this was/is beyond what I expected. A property in a quaint, serene and calm environment only rattled by the chattering of bamboos and chirping of birds. What seemed... More

Bamboo Grove is everything that you will read on the Periyar Tiger Reserve's website. Situated away from the busy centre of the town it is an excellent get away from the hustle and bustle of daily city life, especially in the off-season. The USP of the Bamboo Grove is eco-tourism and the limited number of cottages it has to offer.... More

Quite a contrast to the other hotels in and around thekkady, Bamboo grove offers a rustic cottage accomodation to the adventure traveller. If u are in thekkady for nature activities and treks this is the place to stay. The cottages are well laid and spread out. The food is very basic and simple. For the price, its great value for...

This was my first experience staying at a 80% natural resort. The cottage is 80% (rest 20% is toilet area) of wood, bamboos and leafs. Food they provided was also of good quality. Its approx 5 mins away from Thekkady main road and 5 kms away from the reserve forest. They don't have parking facility, so vehicles are getting parked... More

Hats off to PTR authorities for setting up such a fabulous environment. We can stay in hotels all around the world. But you will get only rare chances to be in a hut. To be in a hut so close to wild life sanctuary with a calm and quiet premise, you must come to PTR. Traditional Kerala foods, trekking, boating... More

I stayed here with my daughter last June, on the recommendation of a colleague. On the meal plan provided, we were fed the most amazing South Indian cuisine by local women. The men involved in running the place took us on walking tours of the reserve, booked tours and drove us to our boat tour on Periyar Lake. Very helpful,... More

We stayed in Bamboo Grove for 1 night in Feb 2010. The reason we chose this was it was right outside the Periyar forest reserve. Its promoted by the forest department and we made the booking from the forest department office after we reached there. The place is very basic, but its a variety experience. It is full of vegetation... More

Bamboo Grove looks nice from the outside - there are cute bamboo huts distributed in a nice garden with lush bamboo stands and a pond in the middle. However, the accommodations leave much to be desired. The rooms were not very clean, in particular the bathroom. They looked like they had not been cleaned in a long time. There was... More
