Best KTDC hotel in Periyar Tiger Reserve

If you can afford the cost and love a heritage style resort, then Lake Palace has the best of all. You will be completed isolated from the rest of the world and will be spending your day with the wilderness of Periyar Tiger Reserve.

If you are on a tight budget and still like to stay in the Periyar Tiger Reserve, then Periyar House is the budget hotel in the jungle.

If you want to enjoy the premium facilities at a cost in between the other two, then Aranya Nivas is the choice. A Beer parlour, swimming pool, multi-cuisine restaurant, club house etc are the major attractions that are not available in the other two hotels.
