An amazing experience.. Very happy with the time we had spent at Vanya and the resort.. Excellent service.. The concept of the tree hose is "back to nature". Anybody who wants to escape from the chaotic city life and get some relaxed time can opt to visit this place. You will get an opportunity to blend with nature. So, relax,...

I spent one night at Vanya Tree house on 2nd September 2016 during my 7 days Honeymoon trip to Kerala. Experience was exciting and the hospitality by Vanya staff was excellent. I have not stayed in tree house before so I cannot compare it with any other property but this location is surely a treat for the mind and soul....

A truly out of this world experience. An experience that truly embodies what going back to nature really means. Expect settings from a different era. An era where man lived in harmony with nature. Vanya gives you that and much more. If you are a true nature lover at heart. You should definitely experience Vanya. You will keep coming back.

My friend and I stayed at Vanya Treehouse, part of the Green Woods retreat on the 18th of August 2016. It was a unique and wonderful experience I can thoroughly recommend for those in need of isolation and a return to nature experience. The location is remote and sits on the edge of a nature reserve. The accommodation is a...

We stayed in VANYA tree house. We were taken until a certain point on a resort maintained JEEP, after that we had to trek for a while to reach the tree house, which was a amazing experience. The tree house is very much adjacent to forest and hence we loved the place a lot. Tree house is well maintained. We...

It was one of the destinations in our honeymoon trip and this was a memorable one too. Jeep drive of about 30 mins and a 15 min walk is reqd to reach here. I'd recommend this especially to couples who'd love to spend some quality time among the nature.

This is a decent treehouse but definitely not worth the hype and the price. I've listed down all my observations and experiences as bullet points. 1) As others have noted, it needs a 15 minute jeep drive + atleast a 15 minute trek to the treehouse and you cannot go in the dark. So if you are just going on...

Vanya Tree House is only for nature lovers. It is a no frills tree house set in the middle of a deep forest with no luxury but sufficient set of amenities. The access to the tree house is partially through a jeep drive and then almost a kilometer trek up the hill. The journey was a memorable experience for us....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vanya, means `Wild' and the name in itself portrays the location of our standalone Tree house. This is dedicated to those who are adventurous and would love to be up, close and personal with Mother Nature. It is located in a 10 acre hillside filled with organic plantation and gigantic trees ,adjacent to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, in Thekkady, and is the best place from where you can get a glimpse of the variety of wild animals roaming in their natural habitat. Accessible only by an uphill trek for the last kilometer, guests are taken on a 4 X 4 vehicle till the base camp. From the base camp you need to trek uphill for a kilometer to reach the drawbridge which takes you to the Tree House base. Every evening this drawbridge is folded back and then you are safe there.There are places for rest and refreshments en route for those who find the Trek tiresome. Further uphill from the tree house, you arrive at the top of the hill, which provides you a panoramic view of forests, ridges and mountains which are part of the expansive 777 sq.km. Periyar Tiger Reserve.The Tree House has a bedroom, a wash and toilet and a sit out to look out for animals that pass by. A simple, back to basics experience but with a location that rests alongside the forest cover, in a terrain about 2000 feet height from sea level. Two house staff that stays at base camp, accessible by intercom, who make and deliver your food. Please do note food served is Kerala cuisine and in home cooked style.Bookings for Vanya need to be done in advance due to the high demand from niche travelers. ... more   less
