I should admit that I was quite skeptical about venturing out to Thekkady, after a visit a good four years back had left me entirely exhausted. Almost everything about the place appeared chaotic back then, right from the queue for the entry pass into the Periyar Tiger Reserve to the celebrated boat ride that wasn't any great shakes either. The...

2 days at lake palace one of our best vacation experiences over the years. Great property, best in class hospitatity, great food and of course the service of mr.Shaji Mathew and his team. His narratives on animal behaviour was fascinating. You can spend hours in total tranquility watching wild life around the island resort. The jungle walk led by tribal...

This is an experience you don't want to miss. You can only get here by boat, no road access. So you can imagine how pristine this place is. Though at times the tariff is on the higher side, this is definitely worth it. This was built by the Raja about 100 years back. The property has been maintained very well...

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...
