Tree house is okay. Tree house is not located as a part of hotel. Poor food experience at dinner and breakfast. Food was cold and not quality. One would expect at least South Indian dishes to be good but that was not the case. Hotel is located close to the tiger reserve national park. Service was average.

It is NOT a tree house. It is built in plastic and concrete. Epic fake. I checked also on their website before booking and there was written false information (I will attach pictures). Very bad staff and services. The manager is arrogant and when I showed him my disappointing he only laughed. Paid a lot for a super fake.

Their rooms are fairly spacious too. We thought it wouldbe in the forest somewhere but it was right next to the periyar tiger reserve on the road. The... More

Very horrible spa and rooms. Doesnt even have a lift to go to top floors. They charge for 4 star property when in itself its not even 1 star. Avoid this hotel and spa - there are far better ones in this area

I stayed at this hotel in Dec 15 with my family. The overall experience was VERY BAD. When you go to the reception for check-in, greedy people from in-house ayurvedic massage center will approach you, will take you to the counter and make sure you take one of the package. When we reached room, hot water was not there. We... More

We paid 15,000rs for one night for 2non ac rooms, and the quality of this hotel very poor. Even a 2000rs per day hotel will have a better service than rangerwood. The furniture is covered with dust, No hot water, no room service, they even not bothered to solve issue. The guard was bringing hot water in a bucket for... More

An average hotel with large rooms and huge woodwork around located right on the boundary of the periyar wildlife sanctuary. the service is average. they have an Ayurveda centre which is pretty large and busy. The primary revenue is perhaps generated from this centre. Since there is not much to see and do in Thekkdy unless one intends to stay... More
