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

It sounds a bit over the top, but to me, this is the most amazing place I have been to and I will tell you why. This is in a reserved forest area accessible only by boat. There are while elephants, bulls, deers etc (even tigers-rarely seen) roaming is grounds and you are almost sure to see them. However, I... More

There's enough been said in the previous reviews about the place, I would like to only mention the hospitality of the manager and the entire staff for running such an immaculate show. Even though the rooms are a little pricey but thats the price of royalty and thats exactly what to expect here. The b'fast, lunch and dinner spread was... More

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 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
