We did not quite know what to expect as Aranya nivas is in the middle of the sanctuary. We expected peace and quiet; but it was quite the opposite. During the day it was as if the entire state of Kerala was inside the sanctuary. The main attraction was the boat ride in the lake and the queues were miles... More

We were there in March 2013.The hotel was well maintained, the staff was good and the food was also good. It is very disappointing that there is no half day jeep safari .If you are there only in the early evening or morning ,you are not able to take a jeep safari.There is only a full day Jeep safari available....

Thekkady is a typical Kerala countryside, with rich vegetation, constant rains and damp weather (at least that's how it was when we went ). Thekkady’s single biggest attraction is its huge lake. With 2-tier motorised boats one can go boating which takes about 2 hours per trip. On a lucky day, I’m told that many wild animals can be spotted... More

I stayed in Periyar House in March 2013 with my family. The rooms were clean. Hotel is well maintained. Dinner and breakfast was included and options were quite good. Dinner was full course. Same with breakfast. Hotel arranged for the boat ride tickets without any issues. A good place to stay within the forest. Liked it.

The location is great, inside the forest area. Only negetive side is that within 6PM you have to come back, since the area is restricted. The hotel must arrange some amusement and cultural program at night to engage the guests. The biggest advantage of booking here is that you do not have to worry about the boat booking as it... More

Periyar house KTDC is worst hotel in Thekkady. First it is situated into the the jungle where people are not allowed to enter or go outside after 6 PM. Lot more cultural activities are performed outside the jungle starting from 6 PM onward, which you will not be able to enjoy while your stay in this hotel. Rooms are ok... More

Basic Need: You would simply end up in the forest with no Food to eat for Dinner. You will not be allowed to go out to the city after 6 PM. That means what Periyar House Cooks for you is the dinner. Think of a situation where the food is not good and not fresh. You pay 300 INR for... More

This place turns into a jail at 6:00 PM. I would understand if the reserve was in a remote location, but you can stay in a hotel just outside of the reserve that doesn't lock you up. 1. It's a jail 2. There's nothing to do at the hotel after lockdown. For us, there was a crappy carom board and... More

For that money it is a steal. As you get to stay in the forest. Rooms are not big, but moderate. Clean and neat. Staff is helpful. Stay assures you a confirmed boating ticket for either same or next day. The forest gates close at 6pm. Make sure to get back before that. Book the package with food. As dinner... More

There are cheaper places in Thekkadi but this is the cheapest one inside the national park itself. If you want to trade places for the bustle of a market town for the quietness of a forest, this is the close budget accommodation you can get. The deluxe rooms are spacious, have running hot water and a functioning television set. The... More
