Awesome location.. out in the forest

Posted Feb 25, 2017
Amazing place.. just couple of hick ups. One has to reach before 5 pm if not the reserve forest security will not allow you in.. so ensure you plan to reach by 3 (just in case you have a flat tyre n don't get further delayed). If u miss 5 pm the max you can get in is by 6 pm. Getting in later than that is impossible. My advice is call and speak to the hotel reception before you book so that u know exactly what you have to do to get into the reserve forest as one has to buy tickets as well to enter the reserve forest. One can't go out after 6 pm as well... However apart from those logistics challenges the hotel is just amazing.. old style but nice. Food is average. The only uncomfortable thing is the main door of the rooms. You can lock it from inside but there is a big ventilation above the door ( pad locks) n one can open it from outside!!!!

Overall hotel was good. Good staff But only drawback is 5 pm the gates are shut but u can request the ktdc hotel for a jeep. Food is ok. Rooms give u feeling of olden resorts. But the location is very good to feel the forest environment. Beware of the monkeys. Front desk Manager was very helpfull.

Right within the jungle, possible to see wildlife

Was a well kept property with decent food catered by the restaurant. Right inside the jungle. Probably the cheapest among the 3 properties in Thekkady maintained by Kerala tourism.

Pros: Located well inside the forest region. We did enjoy our stay there. If lucky enough then u can have some animal sightings.
Cons: As the Hotel is located inside the forest area, we had to report back to Hotel premises by 5.00 p.m. No-one is allowed to cross the forest check post after 5.00 p.m. Many of the activities are out of forest area and which takes place in the evening hence we missed it. But I would still recommend staying in KTDC Periyar for its location and for enjoying the surronding.
