With a Beautiful location, helpful staff.. I wish to b there at 2-3 nights but unfortunately our package contains only 1 night. I urge to KTDC to make some more rooms there.. The only problem with this resort is that the boat facility is only for 5 pm. So no extra activities.. Only rest

It is not often that I return to a place but I will be revisiting The Lake Palace for many years to come, it is so peaceful and magical. Starting with the boat trip [you may be lucky to see wild animals, boar, gazelle, monkeys and bison on the way] through the Periyar Lake and the nature reserve. You arrive... More

Pretty special spot. Ferry ride over to the private landing takes roughly 10 minutes. Staff handle everything and the cook is especially friendly and accommodating to your tastes and food interests. Rooms are fine (bathrooms are a little dated), but the front porch area of the room is sublime. You can watch wild life (wild boar, large deer like animals,... More

It’s on an island on Periyar lake, which is inside Periyar tiger reserve, surrounded by breathtaking view of lake, hills, endless forest greenery and you also get to see wild life sightings. Resort facilities: Beautiful resort in wilderness, with big TV with many... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our holiday to Kerala. From the time you reach the transit lounge, you are treated like a king / queen. We arrived here in the afternoon, we were promptly checked in and taken to the boat jetty. A private boat took us to the summer palace of the King of Travancore / The... More

This Place is really unique. You stay in the middle of a National Park surrounded by water in wondrful herritage rooms. On the other side of the lake you sea bisons grazing and if you go a few steps from the hotel you find yourself in the middle of nature. The rooms are wonderful with a great veranda outside. The...

The property is far away from the maddening crowd and is set in a breath-taking location. We felt fortunate to be able to observe the elephants... More
