We were truly amazed by the experience. Vanya treehouse was a unique and memorable place. We enjoyed walking in the forest during the day and night, and we definitely enjoyed the great service provided. Vanya treehouse is a go to place. Thank you for the breathtaking moments.

A truly out of this world experience. An experience that truly embodies what going back to nature really means. Expect settings from a different era. An era where man lived in harmony with nature. Vanya gives you that and much more. If you are a true nature lover at heart. You should definitely experience Vanya. You will keep coming back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vanya, means `Wild' and the name in itself portrays the location of our standalone Tree house. This is dedicated to those who are adventurous and would love to be up, close and personal with Mother Nature. It is located in a 10 acre hillside filled with organic plantation and gigantic trees ,adjacent to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, in Thekkady, and is the best place from where you can get a glimpse of the variety of wild animals roaming in their natural habitat. Accessible only by an uphill trek for the last kilometer, guests are taken on a 4 X 4 vehicle till the base camp. From the base camp you need to trek uphill for a kilometer to reach the drawbridge which takes you to the Tree House base. Every evening this drawbridge is folded back and then you are safe there.There are places for rest and refreshments en route for those who find the Trek tiresome. Further uphill from the tree house, you arrive at the top of the hill, which provides you a panoramic view of forests, ridges and mountains which are part of the expansive 777 sq.km. Periyar Tiger Reserve.The Tree House has a bedroom, a wash and toilet and a sit out to look out for animals that pass by. A simple, back to basics experience but with a location that rests alongside the forest cover, in a terrain about 2000 feet height from sea level. Two house staff that stays at base camp, accessible by intercom, who make and deliver your food. Please do note food served is Kerala cuisine and in home cooked style.Bookings for Vanya need to be done in advance due to the high demand from niche travelers. ... more   less
