“"Beautiful location"”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

we travelled allepey with a group of 16 ppl in march 2014. The lake palace resort is one of the best resort in allepey. The location is very beautiful. The cottages which we were given were on the back water side. so Our balcony was facing backwater view. It was amazing. the rooms were big n specious. Staff is very co-operative n food is nice.They give us pick & drop facility via boat.

Room Tip: MOstly al the cottages r facing backwater so no problem.

We traveled to Kerala Allepey in Nov 2013 with another family. We were happy with the overall stay but a wee bit let down by the staff at the spa and the quality of the food at the restaurant.

Considering that we were isolated on this property which is sort of an island, we had hoped to enjoy some authentic Kerala food but were hugely disappointed as the quality of the food was not up the mark.

Our package for 3 nights included a free spa treatment. When we called the spa on the last day of our stay and booked a slot. However, a couple of hours later, we were told that we will be moved out of that slot as they would like to accommodate another VVIP guest [???] Apparently an official who was important for the fortunes of the hotel!! My friend gently told the therapist that since we were guest at the hotel, we were VVIPs too :)

Apart from that, overall an okay stay.

This resort is one of those places you can't have enough of, ever! It was a family vacation in Kerala that brought me here, and I am glad I trusted the other reviews on Tripadvisor while choosing this place.

Situated right on the banks of the Vembanad lake, this resort lives up to its name. To reach the resort, you would need to take a short boat ride. The resort arranges this for you and all you need to do is approach its office located oppsite the KSRTC bus stand in Alleppey. We arrived weary and tired because of the long car ride from Thekkady to Alleppey in heavy rains, but a first look at the hotel freshened us up. The boat ride would be your first experience of the back waters and it keeps getting better.

The entire resort has a typical Kairali feel attached to it. I would suggest the lake side rooms to complete the experience. The rooms may feel a bit tired at first, but it adds to the experience. Each lake side room had porch that opened right above the lake - brilliant place to enjoy your morning coffee.

The booking includes breakfast. I expected a buffet breakfast as usual but was surprised to find an a-la-carte menu - and what a pleasant surprise it was to find out that I could order anything from the breakfast section in any quantity, without paying anything extra! This would be the right time to try the local cuisine.

The surprises didn't stop there. There were a host of activities that you could choose to spend your time at the resort - all for free. We tried paddle boats and fishing. You could fish right from your porch, and if you catch something, they would even cook it for you and serve it! They also had a sunset boat ride through the backwater planned for their guests, but the weather unfortunately did not permit that. The rains though added to the beauty of the place as you could spend hours sitting on the deck by the lake talking to your family. You could always use the swimming pool if you felt like. They also had speed boat rides, but they were chargeable, though the charges were pretty reasonable.

While we were booked for two days, we had to unfortunately leave due to an unforeseen strike in Kerala which would have paralyzed the entire state. The hotel has amazing Kerala massage and spa options, but the unforeseen change in plans didn't let me try them out.

Coming to the rooms, they are spacious, well maintained with all the amenities you would expect to find in a resort at this budget. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were pretty clean and huge. The rooms were a bit tired looking though, and the room we were allotted at first had a leaking roof, but the staff shifted us promptly before we even entered the room. No complaints though as the property is huge and the Kerala rains can be pretty unforgiving.

A special mention for the staff here - great hosts! Polite, well dressed and extremely helpful without being too pushy. They were always ready to help, even when the pool staff had to come rushing from the pool side to our water deck because I couldn't remove the hook from the fish I had caught - in the rains!

I am definitely going to visit again, and spend a lot more time than I did this time.

Best season: November to April

Room Tip: Choose the lake side rooms.

We had only booked one night here on a touring holiday but it merited at least two or three. Lovely, peaceful setting with easy opportunities for exploring by boat, or just relaxing and watching boat movements and marine birdlife. Our room was well equipped and comfortable, though one chair was missing off the verandah, and the sliding door needed some force to close it for the air-conditioning - both easily remedied. Also, the over-sophisticated electric control panel by the bedside took some getting used to. There was an outer room by the entrance door with separate TV, and our verandah looked out on to the water so it was possible to enjoy it daytime or evening. The restaurant offered buffet-style meals which gave plenty of choice. The resort's reception area is spacious and provides a pleasant place to sit and read or socialise as an alternative to the room.
