This is very close to market , periyar national park and surrounded by natural gardens. the caretaker is very helpful and provided many useful suggestion. Don't mistake as this 6 room home stay has basic facilities only. Would have rated higher if I would have gotten higher floors.

We stayed at Jungle Palace for a night. Rooms are spacious and clean. Nice view from the room but scary at night. We saw a deer in the jungle from our room. Nice weather in thekkady. This hotel does not have its own dining, but there are a couple of restaurants and a pizza joint nearby, thus solving the food... More

Ultra clean, Periyar sanctuary in background, rooms are big enough to occupy 4 people.This is one of the best places to stay in Thekaddy.You can book it without doubting even once.It is on the road to periyar sanctuary so location is perfect too.

Since it was not the peak season we didn't make advance booking and thought about checking the place out before finalizing. We were pleasantly surprised as the location of this home-stay is right outside the Periyar boating entrance and the rooms overlook forest on the back side. The rooms and bathroom were clean and we could instantly decide upon it.... More

I went there last year in Sep (2013). The property is good, I opted for top room. Stayed here for one night only. Not very far from market and was peaceful as well. The bedsheets were not "that" clean and towels were little old. Very near to Periyar lake. Since the price that was charged was quite low, hence I... More

The Jungle Palace home-stay certainly exceeded my expectation with regards to the size and quality of rooms and sit out spaces available. They offer good clean rooms with the jungle tree line in sight which gives you a feeling of closeness to the Periyar Reserve. The bathrooms and other areas as clean and tidy. As with other home-stays or slightly... More
