Excellent service.. great food and wonderful atmosphere... we were treated like royals.. but we were unlucky that we couldn't see elephants due to the rising water levels after the court verdict. enchanting experience

Our trip to Kumarakom culminated in Lake Palace! And perhaps, we couldn't have asked for more. Excellent location, hospitable staff, and amidst all the wilderness one can still perfectly feel at home - yes, they serve delicious food! Thanks to the Manager and all of his support staff for being accomodative and friendly. See you soon :-)

The best luxurious stay in Periyar is undoubtedly Lake Palace. With it's amazing location amidst Lake Pariyar in an isolated island and the hospitality of KTDC stuffs along with the Victorian era palace rooms to stay, tryst with nature can't be more perfect!. Sitting in the balcony, the scene of grazing Gaur, Sambar deer, Wild bore, Elephant (to name a... More

As soon as our family of five (consisting of people in the age group of 8 to 75 years!) landed at the gates...we were welcomed (it seems like a shock initially since you don't get this kind of welcome anywhere else in Kerala) endearingly by the managers. We had a lot of baggage and these folks made sure that they... More

Expensive - Yes But in a place such as Thekkady, where each day 1000s come in for the lake boat ride, for those who seek peace, serenity, awesome views, great food and a royal ambience - Lake Palace is the answer. An exceptionally helpful caretaker takes care of you attending to all needs. The food served is absolutely authentic and... More

In Thekkaddy if one wants to really enjoy the Periyar tiger reserve stay inside the Lake Palace. This is a 1927 palace built by Maharaja and has only six rooms. You can sit back enjoy the breakfast, lunch and dinner made by the wonderful chef and wind down with a book, indoor games or badminton. You can also do some... More

My friend and I decided to treat ourselves to three nights here on a longer trip through Kerala. It is pricey and we did consider staying in Thekkady or Kumily in homestays which are a fraction of the price ... our reasons for choosing Lake Palace included: 1) wanting to be actually in the national park with the peace and...

They charge you premium but staying in Lake Palace Periyar is worth it. The vintage Lodge is located inside an island of Periyar Lake and KTDC has ferries to pick you up from the Tiger Reserve's jetty. If possible stay in the Lake facing rooms and enjoy the bliss of nature to the fullest. The rooms are huge with king... More

We have stayed there for 4 Nights during September. Since it's rainy season, the resort was empty. Since they have only 6 rooms in the property, privacy is guaranteed. From the Tiger reserve, you need to take a ferry to reach this island. KTDC have a Transit Lounge in the Reserve. From there, they will arrange the ferry. We stayed... More

There was something about the place which constantly reminds you that it is government-owned/run. The rooms were dimly lit; the bathrooms definitely in need of a makeover; claims of running hot and cold water not entirely correct; access limited (by boat only and at certain hours). All this did not matter because service was always prompt and with a smile,... More
