The most wonderful stay I've ever had, hands down. You'll feel yourself traveling back in time as you walk up the steps from the dock, greeted in grand style at the colonial-era entrance with juice, tea, and whatever you like. The rooms have every amenity you may need, and the staff can't wait to ensure you enjoy your stay. The...

This is a hunting lodge owned originally by the former Rajah of Kerala situated on a small island. Very little seems to have changed. The rooms seem quite untouched; solid Anglo-Raj rosewood furniture. There was even a dresser with grand elephant tusks as part of the decor. There is really very little to do and it is extremely peaceful and...

The staff at the hotel were equal part knowledgeable and friendly; and infinitely patient in spending hours around the grounds explaining the history, heritage of the Lake Palace as well as the history behind the lake and the conservation park with its animals and birds.

Stunning experience and in the early morning and evening when the boat trips have stopped this place is truly special. There are only 6 rooms and there was only one other room occupied when we stayed. Nicely...

Situated in the middle of thekkady national park, it's a wonderful place to connect with the nature. The staff was full of attention, the chief cooker is great, and the experience of staying there was outstanding. Despite the noise of the new generator we had a wonderfull experience of the nature, observing the animals going out of the forest just...

My husband and I stayed for one night. There are 6 rooms but we were the only guests so felt totally pampered by Saji and his team. Our room was beautifully furnished, complete with a four-poster bed. The bathroom was spacious and modern. An outdoor verandah was also comfortably furnished with amazing views. We enjoyed watching all the birdlife/wildlife and...

Its a palace inside a jungle. Beautiful view. Food needs to be worked for north Indian cuisine. Downside is you cannot go to the core area but are closed inside the hotels premises. Peace and beauty to be enjoyed.

We booked the rooms way in advance in October for our pleasant stay in the month of December. Booking can be done online using their hassle free website.
