“Ranger Wood Nature Castle - Simply Superb”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

We stayed at Ranger Wood Nature Castle during our recent visit to Thekkady.

This is a magnificent property with superb rooms and great location.

The rooms are very spacious having a beautiful balcony opening into the Periyar forest giving a breathtaking view of Thekkady’s natural beauty.

The hotel has a nice swimming pool and a reasonably good restaurant.

The food was ok & the breakfast which was complimentary was average.

The hotel is located at 2 minutes walking distance from the Periyar Tiger Reserve and about 15 minutes walk from the main market.

The service was excellent & the staff was very courteous always ready to help.

Overall a great property to stay at Thekkady.

I would highly recommend this property for stay at Thekkady & would agains stay at the same place if I ome back to Thekkady

I stayed for one day at this hotel in Jan 13. I must say it was right selection to stay there. Rather I regretted myself why I could not book it for one more day at least.
Hotel rooms were superb, clean and calm. Very near to market as well as periyar lake.
Nice view from the hotel balcony. Nice food and staff is helpful and professional too.
I liked the location and feels that this one is one of the best resorts to stay in tekkady.
I will definitely recommend this to stay in tedday.

Room Tip: Wild view facing rooms...

I got to Rangerwood Nature Castle looking for elephant rides on the Internet. We were not planning to stay in Thekkady, but rather to drive back to Cochin where we had already booked a hotel (be careful about non-refundable reservations on hotels in India -- lots of place including airlines and trains don't take International credit cards, so you must book through cleartrip.com or travelguru.com and some of these sites have really Draconian and inflexible cancellation policies -- which are not typical in the US. So ... we needed to drive 4+ hours back to Cochin to keep our reservation there. Anyway, I wish I could have stayed at Rangerwood! We got a tour and the rooms are magnificent. Huge. Clean. With beautiful views. I would come back to Thekkady just to experience staying at this hotel (and to ride an elephant again). The shopping in Thekaddy is also pretty fabulous. Elephant chatchkes and Kerala wall hangings ...

We had stayed at Rangerwood in Dec 2012 for one day. the rooms are excellent with view of the nature unfolding on you. the location is right outside main gate of periyaar tiger reserve. the service needs a lot of improvement and the food department was pathetic. we were feeling uneasy after having breakfast at rangerwood.

Room Tip: Open to the nature

I had stayed at Ranger wood in Munnar for 2 days in Dec 2012. the hotel rooms are average and the food needs a lot of improvement especially for vegeterians. the service was good. the location was excellent with river passing nearby. the rooms are too space crunched and other facilities like swimming pool and gymnasium needs to be updated.

Room Tip: by the river
