Very nice stay of two days, very helpful and friendly host, very good food, very quite and peaceful place, wonderful wild nature around. Doing a canoe trip in the falling day trying to see the wild elephants go to drink water in the Peryiar River will be a strong memory.

We stayed in many places during our tour of Kerala this was by far the most outstanding and memorable - we only wished we could have stayed longer. We were the only guests and it was like having our own private villa. Thanks to Mr Luigi and his team for making our stay so special. We were greeted with a...

We stayed for 2 nights in February 2017 and wished we'd booked a couple more. Luigi was was an incredibly thoughtful and gracious host. In a wonderful, remote-feeling location, the house is beautiful, secluded and immaculate. The best homestay food of our trip too (and that's saying something). And the wildlife provides a lovely soundtrack to your stay here. Great...

We've traveled for 7 weeks in S. India and stayed in many hotels and homestays. This is the cleanest by a long shot. The setting cannot be beat - the first night we heard elephants trumpeting on the far side of the river and when we took a boat ride, we saw another elephant swimming across the river upstream from...

We had the most incredible stay at the Periyar River Lodge. The first thing to impress us was that the entire lodge was ours! There are two bedrooms and the four of us had the entire lodge to ourselves! The next thing we loved was the isolation the lodge offered. It sits on top of a bank, overlooking the river...

A wooden heritage house near the jungle, just in front of a river. Le service of Luigi and his collègues is exceptionnal. Your meals are served in your house. You can hire a boat, walk along the river or go birdwatching with a guide or alone.

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

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
