“The BEST Spot..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Just back from the super duper 6 days spent in Kerala.
Jungle Palace has been one of the best spots. Yes, the legendary 2nd floor it was! One of the beautiful moment was when we spotted a herd of Deer dancing under the rain in front of our eyes =D
Simply....an Awesome experience being here!

Stayed April 2013, traveled with family

It was our driver from Munnar who recommended this guest house in Thekkady and we were absolutely delighted. Spacious clean bedroom and large clean bathroom. The balcony of our room on 2nd floor looked out across to the jungle and we were amazed by the view, the peacefulness and birdsongs. The owner and staff were very efficient and kind. We asked for an early wake up call on our second night as we were leaving on the early bus. Quietly they brought us the most delicious breakfast and tea... We will certainly go back and we highly recommend this guest house.

Room Tip: Obvionsly the best rooms are those looking out over the jungle but all are clean and quiet and very...

I stayed here on 2nd March for a day. I took 2nd floor forest facing room. Room was very spacious and clean. Room service was good. This place is very close to (100mts) from Tiger reserve forest. So we can walk to forest entrance to collect tickets.

Room Tip: 2nd+ floor forst facing rooms are very good. You can see nice forst view.

The location of this homestay sells it without anything else. We had room 6 on the top floor (room 5 is probably the better). The room is huge, spotlessly clean and well decorated. WiFi is difficult and the best signal is by the road door, none in the room. The view from the balcony is just amazing. We saw more animals here than a full day in the reserve. Restaurants are plentiful in the area and Rajesh is happy to book trips and shows. We will go back again.

We had taken a room on the second floor facing the jungle. The view was great and sitting on the swing and relaxing was even good. The room was quite big and even the private bathroom was quite spacious. You have full privacy to yourself. The owner, Rajesh is quite helpful. He helped us with booking a cab for our stay. We had booked his cousin Prakash's car. He was also a very nice person to be with on a tour to a new place. He knew all the places around and drove quite safely.

One suggestion to Rajesh - Please include a water bottle with glasses in the room.

It was a great experience overall. The market, restaurants, Kathakali show center, the Tiger Reserve are all nearby. Great location too!!

Room Tip: Second floor, room facing the jungle.

The hotel is located very close to the entrance to Periyar Tiger Reserve. The rooms are very big, with private bathrooms with hot water. There is a very nice terrace with beautiful view of the forest. It's quiet and cozy and the owners are very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with jungle view if available.
