“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

As soon as we arrived Mr Rajesh was already at the door ready to meet us! Our room was immediately available and it was clean and spacious. The view from the rooms were stunning and maintenance was good. Mr Rajesh was extremely helpful and approachable. The only drawback was having to ask for the hot water to be turned on when we wanted to shower, but he did this immediately with no problems The location was fantastic and great value for money. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit! :)

We reached this place in the afternoon. We were welcomed by our host Mr. Rajesh. The Rooms were neat and clean... This place is absolute Value for the money you pay. Power outage is a problem. There was no power for most part of the night but we were able to get a good sleep due the pleasent weather. The biggest drwback is they dont provide food. There is one restaurent nearby who charge bomb for pathetic food. They charge Rs. 25 for MRP RS. 20 bottle of drinking water and say this is how they charge. Would be a greata place to stay if they arrange for a kitchen where they can provide atleast limited varieties.

The hotel rooms are quite spacious. The bathrooms were clean and neat. The view from the room was better.. Very decent budgeted hotel. The maintenance was good. The hotel is on the way to the Lake. Mr.Rajesh is very helpful.

Room Tip: Only draw back is they don't restaurant! You have to go out to have breakfast and dinner.

This was our first experience with a home-stay and contrary to our apprehensions the stay at Jungle Palace was really good. The room was huge, big enough to easily accommodate 5-6 members. While the front door of the house faces the town/civilization, the backyard overlooks the Periyar Forest. In fact from the balcony one may easily spot a lot of deers, sambars, bisons, etc. on & off (make sure you take the room at the top most floor for a very good view).
Mr.Rajesh (the owner) & his family take good care and also give very good guidance about the nearby places to visit, etc. Based on our experience, we would certainly recommend this as a great place to stay at Thekkady, more so if its a short trip of not more than 2 days.

Room Tip: Room at the top most floor offer a very good view of the jungle

Very good place to stay in Thekkady. Esp. the room no. 5 has a splendid view of the forest behind. The rooms are very well maintained and bath rooms are spacious and neat. Mr. Rajesh is very helpful and takes care of the guests very well.

Room Tip: Room No.5 is the best.

I stayed in this place in the second week of july 2013. Location is very good and you can experience good scenic beauty and weather from the balcony . Unfortunately we could not stay at night here as we had to travel the same night. There is not much of staff as it is a family owned and managed property. However,Rajesh is quite helpful. value for money

Room Tip: Opt for second floor Rooms
