There are two separate parts to this review, one of them is the fact that staying at this hotel really is an incredible experience because of it's location in the middle of the park and the perks you get: you are always assured the best places in the super crowded boats in the park, and sometimes you have them for...

We had an incredible night in an incredible room overlooking the lake and national park at the Lake Palace. We saw animals out of our window and were able to even observe a wild dog chase. No Tigers unfortunately but one had been nearby just a few days before. We could only stay one night but wish we could have... More

The Lake Palace is situated inside the Periyar Tiger Reserve. It is one of the two KTDC properties inside the Reserve - the other being Aranya Nivas. To reach this hotel, you have to take a ferry ride through the Periyar lake to a place which is almost like an island. You will have to reach Reserve limits by 5... More

An experience out of this world. Warmly welcomed by Sajid the caretaker and very well looked after. Ideally located inside the Periyar wildlife reserve. Saw elephants, wild boar, bison and sambhar deer from the balcony. Sajid also provided binoculars. Would strongly recommend this lovely place to stay in, be warmly looked after and enjoy the company of animals.

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.
