About Company

Ambika Group of Hospitality Services, Thekkady

Founded in the year 1965, by Late Mr. KK Damodaran, Ambika Hospitality group had a very modest transition from a meager Tourist Home to very successful group consisting of resorts and Ayurvedic rejuvenation centers. In the late sixties, when tourism was yet an unborn industry, Ambika Tourist Home at Thekkady was the only lodging facility available in the region. Progress was slow,but steady with new shops being opened at Thekkady for sale of original aromatic spices, ethnic handicrafts, tribal products, antiques and souvenirs. This attracted plenty of travelers and tourists during the late eighties when tourism industry was slowly blooming.

Company Mission

To be a premier destination where nature's serenity intertwines seamlessly with luxurious hospitality, providing guests with unforgettable experiences that foster a deep appreciation for the environment


At Rangerwood NatureCastle, our mission is to curate a harmonious sanctuary where guests immerse themselves in the beauty of nature while indulging in unparalleled comfort and personalized service. Through sustainable practices, immersive activities, and genuine hospitality, we aim to create lasting memories and inspire a profound connection with the natural world.

A premium quality resort with all kinds of modern facilities and hugely spacious rooms make Rangerwood Nature Castle an instant click among tourists and travelers due to its proximity to Wildlife parks and sanctuaries of Periyar. Imagine your room balconies and windows opening into the wilderness of thick and dense forests with occasional sneaks and peaks of wild animals at a safe distance, this is what makes rooms at Rangerwood nature castle unique.

In the meantime there was a tremendous progress in the Tourist demand for Ethnic Ayurveda and Panchkarma treatments during the early nineties. Recognizing its viability at Thekkady, Ambika group initiated the “Ayur Thejus”, a massage and healing therapy center in 1993. This was first set up independently, but later on integrated as an annexure to Rangerwood nature castle, as a facility available to both resort guests and outsiders. All kinds of Ayurveda rejuvenation treatments are provided to the guests by medically certified massage professionals. A wide range of Panchakarma and Ayurveda therapies are performed using genuine Ayurveda medications and oils. These Ayurveda & rejuvenation centers acquired additional authenticity much due to the fact that it was solely a family holding and was managed by the wives of the four brothers and other family members. Shortly after its huge success, a similar branch is opened at Devikulam, as a part of Ambika Hospitality group expansion at Munnar.
