5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2010

We just fell in love with this property from day we landed there and enjoyed every bit of our stay in the Lake Palace. The staff is not only courtious but very efficient too. We were looked after so well that i would recommend this hotel to any one any day. Its a paradise on earth.

When we booked from London UK - we were not sure about this hotel but as it was on the lake and read some negative comments regarding the cleaniness of House boats in Kerala, we decided to stay for only 2 nights. What a mistake this was. Wished we stayed here much longer as the place just took our breath away. all the staff were so friendly. the treatment rooms were spotless with all the morderm aminities - the qualified therapist were extraordinary and so reasonable in price compared to some of the posh hotel we stayed.
We have decided to re-visit this place soon,

The Lake Palace is beautiful. The staff are great and the food is lovely. Great place to relax and enjoy the lakes and rivers. There are a lot of activities you can do that are provided by the hotel or you can just relax and take it easy. When i am next in town we will be staying there for sure.

If you have some concept of Heaven in your mind, it can't be different from Lake Palace. Situated in the middle of Punnamuda Lake in Alleppey, it can be approached only by boat. Modern facilities to pamper you in typical Kerala style, tastefully designed buildings and rooms keeping the cultural backdrop intact, every minute I spent here is something I treasure. Curteous staff, a restaurant par excellence and great facilities including an Ayurveda massage center, games room, a superb swimming pool and great conference facilities.A large estate where you can ramble through to your heart's content, an artificially created canal runing through add to the scenic beauty. A few hours boating expedition thru Punnamuda lake upto Vembanad brings out the stark beauty of this wonderful state. If you are a sea food fan, its an added bonus with the choicest of fresh fish cooked in front of you in typically Malayali cuisine. If you don't feel like leaving at the end of your holiday, don't worry , you are not alone : every single person who comes here leaves with pangs in his heart.

The resort has an excellent location,fairly good rooms and good lawns.The restaurant is also nicely done.It ends there. What they lack is hospitality.They boast of 5 star services and facilities.I would rate the facilities as 4 star and service as 1 star.They had two groups including ours staying at the hotel and one could see the utter confusion.If they do not have the necessary staff,why do they take two meetings at one time.There were no waiters to attend the guests during the meals and worst was that when there was a clogging in one of the bathrooms,nobody had a clue about how to rectify it.Half of the staff does not understand English.All our queries got the same reply."We will do the needful".Help never arrived.When we wanted our towels to be changed,monsoon was the big excuse.I hope they have changed by now.
While leaving all of us had only one question in our mind."How do they run this place'

the lake palace was a neat and clean resort right on the back waters..the rooms were clean and welcoming and the view gorgeous..the gardens were nice to walk around, but the cottages around the artificial lake seemed a bit strange and i would go for their normal waterfront cottages any day!
