Editor's Review

The Rangerwood Nature Castle is located close to the wildlife reserve in Periyar. The rooms are quite spacious with good, but old furniture. The location of the resort makes it unique, giving guests a beautiful view from the balconies of their rooms. The restaurant is good at local cuisines. The pool is clean, but is not situated at an ideal location. Although the staff insists on Ayurvedic massages sometimes, they are not great and might not be worthy of your time and money. The luxury in the rooms is not compromised. The place is a treat for nature lovers, although you might not get to see as many wild creatures as you thought you would. 


  • Great view of the forest from the rooms.
  • The rooms are spacious.
  • The pool is well-maintained.
  • The hotel is very close to the Periyar Wildlife Reserve.


  • Pool is located between buildings and feels a little cramped.
  • Ayurvedic massages are not value for money.
  • Some of the services can be disappointing.
  • Continental dishes might not be that good.
