Having read reviews of mad dashes to obtain tickets for the boat trip around Lake Periyar it became obvious that the easiest way of doing this trip, given that we had only one night in Thekkady, was to book into the Lake Palace Hotel and have everything taken care of. This proved to be the case. To be able to...

This is the experience of its kind. Right from arriving at its transit lounge to check out you get all the VIP treatment. Food is superb. Rooms are traditionally done in maharaja style but bathrooms are most modern. View from the balcony is to dye for. And then you are cut off from the whole world except the wi fi...

Having had recommendations about this hotel I was not disappointed. It is in a gorgeous setting, so peaceful and very old fashioned. The food was delicious and the scenery simply magnificent. The rooms could do with a tiny bit of lighter shades but that is just my personal taste. Sitting on the adjoining veranda and just gazing at the animals...

At Allepey our stay was beyond expectations. We do not regret at all for leaving a houseboat and opting for resort. The resort booked (Lake Palace) was amazing. The space they have within the backwaters as well as the food they serve is awesome. They dropped us by their own boat to the city. The food was so delicious, the...

It's hard to put into words just exactly what the lake palace offers the weary traveller. The only way to get there is by boat from the nearby KTDC associated hotel near Kumily, but this is no draw back the boat experience is second to none and if you're lucky,, you might encounter a family of wild Indian elephants by...

The cleanest place in India, heavy old Raj feel, nothing to do but stuff yourself in the fabulous restaurant where the chef will make you anything you want, and wait for the animals to turn up. Only critique - they should offer binoculars and somewhere to exercise as you can't swim in the lake. Staff very obliging and fluent English...

This is not just the best place to stay in Thekkady, but one of the best places we've ever stayed at. It's an experience like no other.

This historical heavenly place is a must visit for all the peace lovers. The view from around the property is exquisite with a rare sight of Sambar deer, boars, Bison and some very rare birds.

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...
