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'.


DiningThe 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.

BedroomThe 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.

Bathroom In keeping with this distinctive architecture, the bathrooms have open-air rooftops and provide facilities of a modern urban setup.


BedroomA 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.


Built around the lodge is a large verandah where guests can relax on the traditional 'Charu Kasera' (leaning chair) or the comfortable swing, for an unfiltered view of the Periyar River amidst contiguous hills and the luxuriant green forests.
