originally built by the erstwhile rulers of travancore.. As their summer palace..the location which is right in the middle of the periyar Lake and surrounded by thick vegetation.. And the only access is by boat.. Is simply spectacular.

We arrived here and were shown to our room (the end one with the view of the 'beach') We stayed for 3 nights and my only regret is that we wasted one day going on a trip when we should have just stayed on our private island and watched the wildlife wander past. In the evening we saw elephants, bison,... More

To impress someone when there are no expectations is easy. After reading so many glowing reviews of this place I set my bar pretty high. Mr Sajji and his team exceeded expectations with flying colors. The place is spic and span squeaky clean. This is not an easy task being in the middle of a forest. I feel the staff... More

I am finding it tough to write this review. The property is nice - a big bungalow with 6 rooms on what feels is a private island (it is actually a peninsula). There is a nice lawn overlooking the lake for you to laze around and watch animals on the other side. There is nothing to do here. So this... More

As usual KTDC has exceeded its own bench mark in terms of Location. There is nothing much in Thekkady to see, but the stay in Lake Palace makes it worth to visit.

Once again, thank you for a delightful holiday – the service is first class and never disappoints, which is unusual nowadays. The "house keeping" department is doing wonders, the rooms are super clean and the people around are a ring aside. There wasn't a chance to blame anything. Keep up the good work.

Come as no surprise that this place has been so much hyped in the trip advisor, it truly deserves all of them.

This was an absolute highlight. The staff are lovely. Food good, garden and view beautiful. Beds very hard, the room was amazing which made up for the uncomfortable bed. The chaise was slightly more comfortable!
