It was a great experience, all great stuff – the food, the location, the way the people interacted with us. The boat rides were great. We got to see a lot of birds. It felt like home. Thank you for the experience.

Periyar River Lodge was a wonderful experience. It was planned in hurry and wasn’t sure about the place. But this turned out to be a wonderful surprise. Amazing location, second to none hospitality and great food. Sure to come back. Thank you for the experience.

We spent wonderful days in this lodge. Mr.Luigi and Eldhose have taken the best care of us. The landscape is very beautiful and we saw a lot of interesting birds. Thank you for the fantastic days we spent here.Hope we see you again. Christof and Mariom, Germany

A taste of Paradise..... This beautiful house, the unbelievable landscapes, the river, bird watching with a perfect guide ( thanks one more time to him ), the boat tour on the river under the rain (perhaps my best memory), the bathroom of my dreams, but all these things would be nothing without Luigi , Eldhose and Lissy. Her cooking is unbelievable, thankfully I stayed just for two nights, otherwise i would have put on 5 kgs. They made my stay ... a taste of Paradise. Thank you so much !!!
