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.

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...

We were a family of two adults traveling in April 2014 with our nine year old daughter to this slice of heaven. We felt privileged to experience this stay in the heart of nature. 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

We splurged to stay here as part of our Kerala adventure, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. The location is fantastic - imagine having to take a boat to your hotel, perched high on a hill with a view of the surrounding lake. We didn't get to see as many animals as other reviewers did -...

What a fabulous location! So peaceful and relaxing when all the day boats have gone and the animals come to the water. We were lucky to see elephants,bison, deer, wild goats and so many lovely colourful birds! The manager was a great host, calling everyone together when there was something to see. The staff were helpful, the food was good... More

This hotel can only be reached by a 20-mins boat trip as it is situated on an island in the middle of a lake, all part of the Periyar Tiger Reserve. Anyone with limited mobility like myself needs to be aware that there are 109 steps up from the jetty to reach the hotel! There are just 6 rooms -... More
