Small lodge with just two rooms and nice common rooms. Lovely view from the terrace over the river. Beautiful setup and firendly staff. Away from the buzz and close to the bird sanctuary. Boat tour and swim in the river was lovely.

About
Description
Situated on the lush green banks of the River Periyar, adjoining Dr.Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary (more commonly known as Thattekad Bird Sanctuary) in Kerala, the Periyar River Lodge is an ideal getaway for nature ...More lovers, bird watchers or just about anyone who needs a break from the humdrum of urban life. Not only does Periyar River Lodge offers the guests an impressive connection with nature, but its peaceful and serene surroundings provides the guests with an untainted view of rural Kerala, while still being easily accessible to city of Cochin (65 kms) and the Cochin International Airport (50 kms). The River Lodge itself is aesthetically built. The architectural concept of the Lodge is a 'nalukettu', with a small open courtyard in the middle of the house and the structure of the house built around this courtyard. The Lodge itself has large verandahs around it where guests can relax with a view of the river in front of the house. The Periyar River Lodge has 2 double-bed rooms with attached restrooms with modern amenities. The cuisine, being strictly Keralite, has both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. With our high standards of service, we hope to impart an experience of Kerala, both relaxed and personalized. Less
