Several places in Kerala glorify its bountiful backwaters and contribute to its status of a tropical masterpiece. Few, however, stand as a testament to the state’s love affair with the mountains like Thekkady. Home to India’s largest wildlife sanctuary, Thekkady has become one of the most popular hill destinations in the country.


The list of places to see and things to do here is endless. Whether you want to witness trained fighters best each other at Kalaripayattu, an indigenous martial art form, or try your luck at spotting evasive tigers in the flesh at Periyar National Park, there exists a variety of sights and activities here that will keep all your senses engaged. Multiple entertainment options that cater to the diverse tastes of all age groups are crucial for an unforgettable family vacation. No wonder Thekkady is such a sought-after destination for family trips.


This serene town, covered in lavish hues of green, demands to be enjoyed the old-school way. Traditional Indian ‘machan’ style resorts offer a unique opportunity to bask in the brilliance of the outdoors while resting in the snuggest of accommodations. Sitting at an altitude of 2,700 feet above sea level, Club Mahindra’s Thekkady Resort is the perfect answer to all your family’s holiday needs.


Set in the middle of a live rainforest, the resort is a true haven for those who love to nestle in the arms of Mother Nature. Adding to the comforting aura of the forest are the Ayurvedic treatments offered at the resort’s Svaastha Spa that will rejuvenate you. Plunge headfirst into the cool waters of the pool with your children, or let them have fun on their own while you lounge about on the beach beds. Of course, if you're keen on staying in shape even while on holiday, you can head over to our state-of-the-art gymnasium, which is well-equipped with treadmills, weights, and cross trainers.


Our rooms are designed to offer panoramic views of the lush surroundings through a private balcony. Furnished with modern facilities like TV and laundry service, every room at our resort in Thekkady will take care of all your needs – even in the middle of the woods.


In the Periyar Room, you can dine to your heart's content on the flavourful food that is prepared with the organic spices that grow all around us. The Periyar Room restaurant offers a host of local dishes, so you don’t have to travel too far when you're craving those sumptuous Southern delicacies.


On days when you’re feeling adventurous, take to the Periyar Lake in a boat, or better yet, a bamboo raft. Reap the benefits of the thick foliage by embarking on a jungle trek, a nature walk, or an elephant ride. For lazy days, turn our activity centre into your personal playground and engage in board games with your family, or read a book in solitude in the library.


To experience the best of nature and adventure, come to one of the finest resorts in Kerala – come to the Club Mahindra Thekkady Resort with your family.
