The Elephant Court

The Elephant Court lies wrapped in tranquility and shades of green in Thekkady, near the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary. Here, the air is scented by spices from the nearby plantations and the quiet is broken only by birdcall and the rustle of the wind. The Elephant Court, the only five-star hotel in this region, invites you to come and experience the rejuvenating power of nature. Come, surround yourself with dense rainforest.

Feel the royal air wash over you as soon as you step into the regal lobby of The Elephant Court luxury hotel, with its exquisitely carved antique-finished furniture, imperial chandeliers and majestic interiors. An island of sophistication amidst its rustic surroundings, the resort enjoys a reputation for style, service and excellence. We are timeless yet contemporary, classic yet cutting-edge – we are the ultimate holiday address. After your journey through hill country, soak in the warm welcome at The Elephant Court and spare an eye for the grand architecture. Alternatively, relax by the poolside and let our locale mesmerize your senses.


On this slice of paradise, expect nothing less than exclusivity. Rooms and suites at The Elephant Court are designed to combine the elegant traditional style with a touch of the modern. Adding to their distinct character are furnishings in cane, wood and jute. Yes, our luxurious living spaces come clothed in nature.

Patio Rooms

The Patio Rooms are comfortably appointed with twin beds, a bath and toilet. The roofed patio that opens to the glorious green cover outside is bound by a chaarupadi – a carved wooden bench that is a feature of traditional Kerala homes. It’s the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of cardamom tea as you watch the day bloom. Our patio rooms preserve a sense of privacy and yet offer a hint of the outdoors.
