The location is just amazing being surrounded by the Periyar lake all around and sometimes being able to watch animals across the water. Boat safaris are not very exciting because you do not get to see many animals, bird sightings are ok. The place we stayed is an old palace converted into a guesthouse, hence very appealing furniture. Staff are... More

The Lake Palace resort was just at the middle of the river. A small but ride and soon you would be there. By staying there itself you could see animals at the banks of the river, with your binoculars. The location was excellent.

We had the most amazing 2 nights and 3 days at this wonderful hunting lodge but this was entirely due to Mr Saji and his staff rather than to KTDC who own the.property. The food was absolutely delicious and plentiful and the service professional yet friendly. Mr Saji constantly made sure we had everything we wanted and was great at... More

Although a KTDC property it was in an incredibly good condition thanks to the Manager, Mr. Mathew who is hands on for all works. Very hospitable staff, our room facing the lake was beautifully furnished with a large verandah which we did not wish to leave for any activity. Just select this place and you will have no regrets. The... More

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
