Lake Palace Hotel in Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary

Has anyone had any luck making reservations at the Lake Palace Hotel in Kerala.....I have found only agents on the internet, and I don't know whether to trust sending them the 50% deposit for the room. (Its pricey, but a special treat for myself and husband while on the road around Kerala) Does anyone know how to make a direct reservation with this hotel, or know of a reliable agent? Apparently its a popular spot and reservations must be made well in advance.

I haven't tried myself, but here's some info from the south India LP:

the KTDC manages the three hotels in the park and reservations can be made at any KTDC office or hotel. The contact numbers for the Lake Palace Hotel itself are listed as: phone - 322024 fax - 322282 and e-mail

hi there !

Greetings from India !

The hotel is in fact a white marble palace that seems to float miraculously on the still waters of Lake Pichola. Probably the most romantic hotel in the world, this 250-year old palace offers guests a unique blend of serenity and opulence.

we just returned from cocnut lagoon, another wonderful spot in the backwaters. Our bungalow was a refurbished hundred year old jobby, with beautiful wood ceiling with intricate carvings. We had a private pool. The grounds were beautiful. They offered yoga, full aryuvedic clinic, and lots of side trips about the backwaters. The food left something to be desired, but lots of selection it was a full buffet for all three meals!
I have heard about the palace. Only great things. was told that with our three little ones, we should wait for a few years so they can appreciate it. Anxious to hear how you find it.

:o Wow, what a con, it would never be allowed in the UK, the site I suggested looks like the real deal, it's only when you get to the bottom of the page you see that they are only sales agents for KTDC.

Well spotted avkaash.

We stayed there for one night last december. The rooms are charming, comfortable and large, but not really the luxury you would expect for the rate they charge. The hotel is an old maharadja hunting lodge and is the only building on a small island. The rate includes the short boat trip from shore to the island, meals and a boat trip around the lake. If you enjoy a beer, bring your own because they aren't allowed to serve any alcohol and as you are on a small island you can't just walk to a shop. One of the staff had to go to town and bought us some but of course charged us 4 times what he had paid.

Overall, it was a nice and relaxing environment, great for watching the stars, the moon and the sunset, friendly staff and ok food, but I'm not convinced it was worth the cost and I don't think I would do it again. Don't do more than 1 night.

Ha! Good thing I've got all you to cover my back! I recommend that KTDC has cool little movies with nice background music for some of their places. And Isabelle, thanks for the real scoop on the Lake Palace. I was planning on 3 nights...but had no idea I'd be locked into a little island! All I want is to see a couple of elephants! If anyone out there has some tips on how to best see the big beasts, let me know!
