This place has the best view, the best location, and the stay is the most comfortable. Its like a home away from home as one will get to experience a hospitality that is beyond appreciation. The calm and serene ambience will attract every human being. The rooms are beautiful and will make one feel like royalty. The food tastes good.... More

The Lake Palace is so secluded that you need a boat ride to reach there, and once you do, it's the only route back. It is perfect for romantic, as well as, family getaways. Excellent staff that is attentive to guests every needs. It has only six rooms, that are expensive compared to other resorts in Thekkady. However, the perks... More

We had stayed at Lake Palace, way back in 2001, before our kids were born. The staff treated us like royalty and we really enjoyed our stay. It is great to see that the service quality has stayed high. During that trip, we got great service not just at Lake Palace, but everywhere within the national forest - day hike,... More

Secluded and mysterious when we pass by on the boat ride but with breathtaking views of a wide expanse of the lake, forest and the mountains sheltering them from behind, the Lake Palace is special. With only six rooms it creates a sense of closeness and intimacy. The staff are caring to a fault, the food is delicious with a... More
