Rainforest, Athirapally
India, Kerala

Info : Rainforest

Rainforest is a private green oasis set in seven acres of spectacular virgin rainforest. Just 55 kilometres from Cochin, this beautiful part of the world is perfect for a rural stopover and there is plenty to see and do. Come here for a romantic stay in a tree house or for the extensive family-friendly facilities.

In the tropical Sholayar Forest, Athirapally consists of deciduous and evergreen tree cover and some truly stunning waterfalls. Spot exotic butterflies, birds and animals, and visit the neighbouring Parambikulam Forest Reserve too for more of the same. It’s possible to interact and share meals with Muthuvar, Malayar, Mannaan and Kadar tribes in the forest. On-site at Rainforest, you can admire the beautiful lawn, take a dip in the infinity pool, or enjoy panoramic views over dinner at Foliage Restaurant.

There are nine rooms, a tree house, and a cottage. All of them are modern, elegant, and feature balconies with forest views. Premium rooms have Jacuzzis and overlook the waterfalls, and the cottages are perfect for large families. It’s the tree house however that really stands out: designed for two adults, it features truly exhilarating views of the natural surroundings and total privacy. The lack of air conditioning might be a deal breaker for some, but if not, it would be a particularly special honeymoon option.

Come here for beautiful natural surroundings and plenty of facilities and activities for the family, or keep to yourself in the tree house if you’d prefer. Keep in mind that there is no alcohol served on the premises.


Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.

Customer Feedback
Eastern India is a great holiday - Calcutta vibrant, the Sunderbans peaceful, the mountains majestic and the monasteries interesting. I won't mention the roads!
