Lake Palace may give you a treat you will seldom experience in India: silence. Well, near silence. We got up every morning around dawn and went down to the jetty to watch the sun come up. You will hear the birds twittering, monkeys chattering, and an occasional elephant hoot. But no human noise. Our fellow occupants heard tigers roar in... More

The hotel was an amazing small hideaway home in the middle of the jungle.Treated like VIP in the jungle with priority access to boat trips. Staff were super friendly and cooked to order. Travelled with 3 kids over christmas and they loved playing in the playground and badmington area. Staff even gave them a small christmas gift to make it... More

The stay in the middle of an forest is surely worth experiencing! It is expensive but it is once-in-a-lifetime experience. The rooms are good, the hot water in the bathroom takes time, hence check before you jump into the shower. They should improve on this given the price they charge! The staff is extremely friendly and courteous. The Manager, Saji,... More

Our itinerary included one night at the Aranya Nivas, then two nights in a tent followed by three nights at The Lake Palace. Arriving at the Aranya Nivas we were told that they did not have a room for us, in spite of it having been booked nine months earlier, but that they were upgrading us to The Lake Palace... More

We visited the wildlife sanctuary for only one night, but we could feel the nature very strong in the lake palace. Sleeping inside the park is an unique experience. The hotel is perfeclty located, in a small hill with perfect sightseen to one observe wildlife by the lake. The staff is very friendly and the food is really nice. I... More

Booked this property for a trip with my family to Kerala. The property has 6 rooms identical in facilities but the one room (Lake view No44) faces the periyar lake giving some amazing views. This room is bit premium and if one is spending money try for this room. The service is excellent. There is no buffet but you can... More

We reached the transit lounge in the afternoon and were expecting some great hospitality but as the name suggest it is a transit lounge to facilitate our journey to the resort and back. They quickly arranged for a motor boat that led us to the property in 30min or so. Journey to the resort from transit lounge was refreshing and... More

No doubt the best part is the view but the hospitality and the 'unwinding' you can find here is really wonderful. I stayed there with my family and the evening passed just looking the sun set and then by the riverside. The boats that cruise around ends by 6 pm and so it is undisturbed by any noise except nature.... More

There are two separate parts to this review, one of them is the fact that staying at this hotel really is an incredible experience because of it's location in the middle of the park and the perks you get: you are always assured the best places in the super crowded boats in the park, and sometimes you have them for...

We had an incredible night in an incredible room overlooking the lake and national park at the Lake Palace. We saw animals out of our window and were able to even observe a wild dog chase. No Tigers unfortunately but one had been nearby just a few days before. We could only stay one night but wish we could have... More
