“Great Experience”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

We had a marvelous stay at the Lake Palace in August 2012 the exotic location and setting is beautiful. We were fortunate enough to see a herd of elephants drinking and bathing by the lake this sight is unforgettable; we also were able to see other wildlife. The staff are very friendly and helpful which really helps you to relax and enjoy the wonderful scenery. The food is great and catered to your requirements. Our children were equally as impressed. We would definitely recommend for anyone who wants a quieter location with superb views.

Great location, amazing food which you can order to your likeness, brilliant boat tour and an excellent trekking experience in the forest. We got all this on an inclusive package in late July 2012 and was worth every penny. Not to forget the excellent staff and great rooms, the location of the hotel on an island in the middle of the sanctuary is always a winner. Also the fact that there are only six rooms in total gives a calm and peaceful atmosphere. A great experience in short!!

We were in lake palace from 22nd to 24th june 2012. The place is worth a visit. Two things worth mentioning about lake palace are its location and service. Location is unbeatable. Located on a peninsula in Periyar lake, there is abundant natural beauty. You can see animals from the resort itself. The staff treats you like kings and takes care of every small thing you need. Food was excellent and adjusted very well according to your individual requirements

It is surely a unique experience!

I had read the reviews before booking. As this was a state owned property, did not very high expectations. I was travelling with my family. The whole process from reservations to check in to check out was an excellent experience. They called me up & confirmed when will be arriving. So that they can arrange me a ferry to the hotel (this is in the middle of thekaddy lake). I could even order what items i should have for lunch in advance. The checkin was done at the office in the sanctuary, they took us in the ferry to the hotel. THey were expecting us, were ready with fresh mango juice. The Lunch was ready, served on a dining table exclusive for us. this is a homely experience. As there is only 6 rooms, you get a personal attention. Beautiful scenery. This is in the middled of the forest. You can deers, wild boar roaming around on the other side. The team here is wonderful, you need to say what you need they are ready with it. They did a commendable job, keeping us happy & made our stay enjoyable every second.
Excelent property, they have everthing you need in the hotel (small details like paste, brush, shaving kit etc..). This is so far the best experience on a vacation.
Other actitvities here are limited to boat ride, elephant ride.
if you want a real good experience, this is the place

We have travelled all over the world over the years, but the 4 days we spent at this hotel was just exceptional. The location cannot be compared with any other anywhere in the world. Location and the view from Room # 44 is just unbelievable. Mr. Saji, the Manager went out of his way to make sure that all the guests are well taken care off. Mr. Rajan, the main cook made sure personally that he made all dishes according to our tastes and wishes. He is the best cook in India. Vow !!! We cannot wait to get back to this hotel and look forward to visiting again next year.

Room Tip: There are only 6 rooms, all the rooms are great. Location of Room # 44 is the best because you can...
