“Nice Place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We had a programme scheduled last weekend there in Lake palace resort. Checked up trip advisor reviews before landing there.
Check-in: Needs improvement-for groups.It took lot of time to allot the room, after lot of confusion on room availability.
Room: I was plain unlucky not to get 3xx series rooms which i guess is recent addition, hence more swanky. I ended up with 2xx series that have pigeons in roof-open space towards pool have pigeon droppings. Otherwise room was OK. High time they need to change those old TV boxes to LCD ones...
House keeping: Good.
Food: Very Good food at 2x prices.

Room Tip: Rooms on 300 series.....

Dear Guest ,

Warm Greetings and a Very Happy New Year from Lake Palace Resort , Alleppey !!

First of all ill like to thank you writing us back with your valuable feedback .

We regret your discomfort with long check in Time and the pigeons , the same has been taken up with the concerned departments.

As very rightly said that 300 series rooms are the latest additions and are the premium rooms but in the case of group check ins , room allotment is based on the availability and the preferences by the group coordinator. .

It might also interest you that we are in the process of upgrading our left rooms by getting some cosmetic changes to them.

I am happy to read that you enjoyed our food spread , being value for money

I look forward to welcoming you back to Lake Palace Resort and assure you of our best at all times.

Warm Regards

Lake palace is a beautiful island resort in Alleppey. After a toastmasters conference in Kochin we had a lovely break at lake palace before returning home to Sri Lanka.The rooms were spacious and good , the best ones being 300 numbers as they have been refurbished .The hotel staff were very good and helpful. Everything one needs to enjoy a peaceful holiday is available.

I certainly will make another visit with my husband.

Superb Hotel. Delightfully designed rooms, fresh linen, neat rooms and premises, all facilities available.

This hotel is a world in itself, if you chose not to go out for a whole day, there is enough you can do within the premises itself. Cycling, Speed boating, tennis, badminton, indoor games, gymansium, the gym, Paddle boating or be it taking a long stroll in the property, lots to do here itself.

The best part is the sunset cruise and the cultural programmes that are arranged by the hotel.

We also had one day at the Boathouse in our package, which was simply superb, breathtaking views, wonderful rooms, an amazing experience.

The only let down is a bit lethargy from the staff end.
Yet another issue was that we having booked a honeymoon suite were promised floral decoration and saffron milk, which we never got, despite of constant reminders to the staff. They said that flowers were not available in the market and that they had run out of saffron.

The food is average if you are a vegetarian (they hardly have much choices). Superb if you are not.

You dont need to think twice to come here. A full thumbs up

Room Tip: Choose Water villas or Villas to the extreme right of the property where you get an amazing view of...

After a 2 hours drive from Kochi Aiport, we reached the Lake Palace Hotel. It was not yet fully booked, but they offered us a complementary sundown boot cruise. The stuff was very friendly, room was very clean and spacious. The view onto the internal "sea" with integrated swimming pool is very nice.

The optimal start for a backwaters boottrip!

Lake Palace is a beautiful resort with perfect location and excellent service. Our family stayed their and enjoyed every bit of it.
The food is good, rooms are neat and tidy. We stayed in Kerala cottages and rooms had balcony with a very god view of the resort. The staff is efficient and courteous. We also enjoyed pottery making and fishing in the resort. As this property is situated at Vembanad lake, on ad off hopping to the land is not possible. I recommend this hotel to travelers who want to stay for 2-3 days away from the noisy city.
We have to go to the resort by boat and the boat facility is also excellent. We were late for check in for the hotel. So we requested them to delay the sunset cruise for us. They readily accepted our request and transferred us to the hotel. The sun set cruise experience was fantastic. Do not miss if you are staying at Lake Palace. Thanks to the resort team for lovely reception.

after a long journey the welcome we had at the lake palace was perfect, attentive, kind, thoughtful and efficient.

the hotel manager - Sachi - was the perfect host, making the stay very personal and exactly what we were looking for in terms of service

and then there is the location - its a 6 room hotel in the middle of the wildlife sanctuary, cut off from everything and everyone...

and then there was the food - the chef cooked a fresh delicious meal that suited our palates, all part of the deal

thanks to Sachi and his team - the stay could not have been better!

Room Tip: all the rooms are lovely

Dear Guest ,

Thank You Very Much for your review.

I believe u have mistakenly posted your review as Lake Palace Resort is not a 6 room Property in the wild Life sanctuary, rather it is a 58 Key **** Resort. surrounded by the water of Waymbanard Lake in Allepey.
Would request you to do the needful and would welcome you to be at Lake palace on your next Visit to experience the Nature and hospitality.
