This is a special for bad. It is a stunningly crafted building with fantastic views of the river in a tranquil part of the world. Luigi, the host, is charming and attentive and the food was delicious. The only criticism is that the beds are hard. We should have stayed much longer

Excellent Lodge with superb service. The food was very good too. The Manager Mr Luigi attended to all our requirements. The only thing missing was air-conditioning. Though a 15-minute drive away from the main entrance of the Thattekad Bird Sanctuary, the location of the Lodge is very good along the river with a lot of birds around the Lodge itself.

Stayed for two nights in December booked as part of our tour organised by Kerala Connections. Such a peaceful and pretty location by the Periyar river. We had the lovely two bedroomed lodge to ourselves and our hosts could not have been more friendly and attentive. The Keralian food was delicious and more than we could eat. Wonderful to take...

The guest accommodation is situated in an independent building about fifty metres from the manager's house on one side and a lawn sloping down to the river on the other. There are just two well separated bedrooms with a large communal rest area between them and an adjoining small dining room with a fridge available to guests. We spent four...

This is the most wonderful quiet place to relax, with views of the river and jungle combined with sounds of wild elephants and birds.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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. ... more   less
