Nice cool stay in KTDC in Thekkedy , food and other facility are good, it is inside jungle so if you are lucky you can see animal around hotel. I have seen Sambar in front of main gate. Early morning 7.30 boat ride recommended , ticket you may get at hotel desk

Having stayed at Jungle lodges earlier, we were sure of what to expect in the hotel. The location was excellent and the perk of getting the Boat ride ticket for the morning 7:30am ride at your doorstep was a good add on. The tariff was reasonable and the dinner and breakfast buffet were sumptous (both veg and non veg). The... More

Rooms are not done up in a luxurious way . The location in the middle of the forest reserve earns up the points. The peak season room tariffs seem very inflated considering the room furnishings and decor . Not like hotels situated in urban areas where you get way better services and amenities at similar tariff. Above average stay.

The property is almost within Wild life sanctuary. Lush greenery all side, wild life at door step !!! We could actually see some wild animals roaming outside the hotel in the evening. The voice of wild animals at night is simply thrilling !!. Monkeys could be seen jumping all over the place. The food , traditional Kerala style is simply... More

The property at the edge of the Periyar Dam lake is ideal for exploring the wildlife in the sanctuary, since it is located within the sanctuary. The facilities are good and the staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. Try and visit the Lake Palace hotel for breakfast to watch the animals come to the lake for watering in the mornings.

A KTDC – government property – guest house in Periyar Tiger Reserve campus. Being categorized as guest house, it offers decent stay, but excellent location & services. I had an unexpected but surprising experience during stay. The rooms are bit congested. After couple of rounds to jungle & returning, we had snacks in room. So, floor & bed were bit... More

The place has frugal amenities but more than makes up in the settings. Its located right in the middle of a forest.Do make time to take a walk through the woods and enjoy the environs.The reception & security staff are friendly and many of those who stayed here have seen wild animals late at night around the hotel. Though we... More

The Periyar House is a govt run hotel within the reserve, for which they do charge a premium. The best thing about it is that you are so close to nature, and we had some great sightings of the Malabar Giant Squirrels and Nilgiri Langurs right outside our rooms and the hotel. It is about 7-10 minute walk away from... More
