It is expensive, but you do feel rather special disembarking the ferry, when others look on. Service is excellent as you feel like royalty, and the peaceful surroundings make you stop and get and contemplate.

Early Sept'2015, we spend a few days at Thekkady. The first few days we stayed at Aranyanivas and then at The Lake Palace. The food at Aranyanivas was brilliant; children loved the buffet !! The stay at Lake Palace was amazing and the hospitality staff great !! Thanks Mr Saji Mathew and team for making the stay special !!

I'd love to keep this a little known secret and not review it, but it wouldn't be fair for the staff and KTDC who strive so hard to keep the customers happy. Please don't stay here looking for wildlife or any other action. This place is to sit back and relax for hours at a time absorbing the nature at... More

You can literally spend hours sitting there enjoying the beauty around. We were a family of 6 and kids, and everyone liked the... More

Very nice property on a peninsula in the periyar river. Only six rooms, and they have maintained the royal charm from the original palace. Staff is excellent, meals served were also delicious. Highly recommend. Deducting one star as there was a problem of hot water in my room.
