Out of this World

6.6/7

This is in midst of nowhere, right in the middle of thick forested jungle, on the banks of the Periyar lake. They have some amazing views from the balcony of their rooms, everyday we saw sambhars, wild boars, bisons in large numbers eating on the opposite bank. We reach it using a ferry and its wonderful ride. A perfect peaceful place for relaxation. The cook makes awesome food and all the staff are very courteous and takes care of all our needs. One of our most memorable trips so far.

Dream come true

6.1/7

I visited this island back in 2002, when we stayed in the forest rest house Tasker camp, adjacent to the Lake Palace. Always wanted to come back and stay in Lake Palace, someday. This finally happened in 2015. A dream come true No other place in Thekkady is as expensive as this. Neither would any other place make your Periyar trip more meaningful Sit in your balcony and see the Active wildlife while the sun rises or sets. De-stress yourself with the amazing silence of the island at the exclusive jetty. Roam around in the woods with the forest guards And if time permits, mood allows, go out for the boat safari or elephant safari with the not-so-outbound tourists Don't miss out the lunch and candle light dinner in the palace. And stay alert, you may hear a tusker too :). After all this, if you want some more adventure, try to find the right connection within the forest officials, to get a booking in the forest rest house and an overnight camping in the forest. May be a good reason for you to come back.

Royal Holiday & there is absolute privacy

6.8/7

Whenever we look at the majestic past - the King, the Queen, the Palace, the Privacy and the luxury surrounding them - many of us feel that it would be great to live in the past - at least for a day Here is your chance to relive the past with all the luxury. Built in 1928, the Lake palace seems to be the summer palace of the Royals of Travancore Kingdom. Situated in the middle of the lake - of course a peninsula - you can reach there by boat which operates from morning 7. 30am to 4. 30PM This is part of the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation and they are maintaining the palace in the best possible way There are only 6 rooms - with one room used by the King himself. Majority of the furniture are heritage in nature. There are 16 housekeeping staff residing and taking care of the palace There is absolute privacy. You can sit in the garden chair or in the recliner and read your favourite book or just dozz off! The wind is so sweet - words cannot explain it. Mobile phone signals waver - depending upon the wind. Otherwise - you are totally cut from the busy world. You can unwind - totally With limited guests, you get utmost attention. They offer you complimentary boat ride in the lake and also a trek in the forest During nights you get visitors from the wild - be it Deer, Bear, Wild boar and what not. You could see traces by their nibbling the garden. They say, there are totally 85 tigers and 1500+ elephants in the sanctuary Either as a nuclear family or with extended family you can enjoy a day or two and live the life of Royals I won't say it is cheap. But for the luxury you enjoy - it is ultra cheap. It costs Rs. 17000 to Rs. 24000 depending on the season. That's US 260 to US$370. In my estimate, it is not viable to maintain the palace at this cost. So plan for a visit before they hike the rates I would strongly advise everyone who reads this review to take a break in the Lake palace at least once in lifetime and if you want to gift something to newly wed couple - give a day in the Lake Palace! They will cherish it for life time.

Excellent place to stay

6.8/7

We visited Periyar to enjoy the experience of staying inside the Forest. The amenities are excellent. The hotel was the Summer Palace of some erstwhile South Indian King. Originally, the hotel had only two rooms, one each for the King and Queen. When it is taken over the, they added 4 more rooms. The rooms on one side have a Lake facing view. One can see wild animals on the other side of the Lake. The services are excellent. The food is unlimited and excellent. Advice to travellers - It will be great experience. If you are visiting Periyar, you should stay here. Also, it is unsafe to roam around outside the rooms at night.
