The hotel is metres to the entrance of Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary and benefits from the green space at the rear, which could be part of the Sanctuary. Delighted to see so many animals and birds from my balcony. Accomodation wise- my room was at the lowest level of the hotel, many stairs, but this level gave a ground level view...

Located right beside the entrance to the Periya Tiger Reserve - but this does not matter much as you are not going to walk into the reserve from there are you - so it wouldn't matter even if you were on the other side of town. Not too bad a place. Room was good and large with a nice outlook...

It was our first trip to Thekkady. We were super excited about seeing wild animals and taking pictures of them. Googling for resorts in Thekkady we came across Rangerwood resort which happened to be super close to the forest. In fact the entrance gate of Periyar tiger reserve is just about 15-20 meters from Rangerwood. The resort is half concrete...

Hotel Location is perfect, view is really good, rooms are classy. I especially requested for this hotel while booking the package as per the photos and location. A bit disappointment in terms of hotel staff especially they did not let us use the swimming pool saying after 6 pm it is closed, most of the visitors will return only after...

I stayed at the Rangerwood Nature Castle for a couple of days at the end of February so that I could check out the national park (Periyar) next door. The rooms are nice and big, with some neat wooden art, but the main attraction is the view outside. The hotel itself backs onto greenspace and you can watch the buffalo/birds/elephants...

The hotel is situated at the entrance of the Periyar National Park (about 100m up the road from the hotel) so you can just walk into the park. Because of the location of the Periyar National Park main gate and the fact that the front of the hotel is almost on the road, there is constant traffic and noise of...

Let's get this out of the way: the treehouses are not, in fact, in actual trees. They're perched on very tall fake trees that look kind of real in a Disney sort of way. The wildlife views from said treehouses, however, are 100% legit. The rooms overlook the Periyar Tiger Reserve, and we spent hours on our porch watching monkeys,...

Our guide suggested this place for Kerala massage. Initially when we entered looking at the reception, lobby and the way the staff explained about massage, felt really nice. I booked the best massage for my parents costing Rs.3500 each. We reached the place at the time they mentioned, I found that the massage room was not at all up to...
