- Luxury Tents (20 nos)
At Hornbill Camp, we provide an unusual stay, which is in air-conditioned tent houses. We have total 20 luxury tents (double fly living tent), 17 of which are water facing. Accommodation here is simple and ecofriendly. Each tent has its own private bathroom and an exclusive balcony. You can simply laze on the cane chairs in the balcony in front of the tent and enjoy the true colors of nature along with the humming of a 1000 birds.
The tents of this Camp have comfortable beds, en-suite bathroom, air conditioners, shower and hot running water. Our Gazebo is a huge water front restaurant and relaxing place. It would indeed be the ultimate experience to watch the rain forest from the gazebo on the banks of the gently flowing River Periyar and loosen up in the calm atmosphere provided by the evergreen forest
Why Stay at the Hornbill Camp?
The Hornbill Camp is constructed using local materials, local labour, managed by local community members & their livelihood comes directly from the proceeds of the camp. The food is sourced locally and the villagers including the local drivers of tuk-tuks and taxis get a chance to make a decent living from the Camp. Hence seeing this camp as just another hotel is missing the point. The ambience & the experience, the dedicated service of the Camp staff & the great ethnic food will more than make up for the loss of creature comforts of a hotel or a resort.
For all visitors to our camp, we arrange kayaking expedition trips to discover the majesty of the thick forests across the river, short walks in the plantations that surround the Camp, cycling through villages for those interested in the culture and lifestyles of the region.
The food is ethnic Keralan, prepared with home-grown spices.
We Serve only Buffet. Both Veg and Non- Veg is served here.
Kindly note that in the Camp, the food is prepared based on the meal plan.
However it would be highly appreciated if guests opting meal plan without food, could let us know in advance regarding their meal preferences.
Barbeque services are also available on advance request.
Note; Hot water in room is available from 6:30 am to 8:30 am
