The Periyar River Lodge - Kothamanagalam - Kerala
Situated on the lush green banks of the river Periyar, adjoining Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary also 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.
Designed to synchronize with the ethnicity and traditional style of Kerala architecture, this serene retreat, built largely of teak wood, offers spacious guestrooms with a large comfortable lounge as well as sunlit verandahs that present an unhindered view of the river and the forest beyond on the opposite bank. Shown below is the view of the Periyar River in front of the Lodge.
Located in the midst of such tranquillity, we at the Periyar River Lodge hope to impart to our guests an unforgettable experience with this impressive connection with nature and untainted vision of rural Kerala with our personalized and high standards of service.
The Periyar River Lodge is aesthetically built, with the 75-year-old basic structure in teakwood still in immaculate condition, and an added extension to this basic wooden structure to expand it into a traditional 'nalukettu'.
The architectural concept of a 'nalukettu,' of an open courtyard in the middle of the house with the four wings of the house built around this open courtyard, is a genre of ancient Hindu architecture in Kerala that was used to accommodate the erstwhile joint-families.
The Lodge contains 2 bedrooms, each of which is configured with either a double bed or two single beds, with attached en suite bathroom with all modern amenities. The bedrooms are completely made of wood with large wooden windows overlooking the river.
spacious lounge separates the two bedrooms, with the open central courtyard beside it. There is a clear view of the Periyar River in front of the Lodge from this lounge.
We hope to impart an experience of Kerala, both relaxed and personalized, with high standards of service. We have an in-house cook and caretaker to attend to the needs of our guests. Our caretaker oversees all requirements that our guests have including organizing specific treks or tours that suit our guests’ interests to ensure they have a comfortable and memorable stay.
