Aranya Nivas Review

One of only two hotels that are actually inside the Periyar Tiger Reserve (the other is the luxurious Lake Palace), Aranya Nivas is a former hunting lodge with a location that enables guests to closely interact with wildlife. Rooms are, at best, average, but they are clean and functional and the staff is friendly and helpful. The resort serves good food, with breakfast and lunch included in the tariff, and it has a beer parlor. There are also plenty of activities for kids.
