“Lake Palace Hotel Allappey”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2007

This was our final destination of a long tour of India, the most expensive hotel and the most disappointing.

It has a wonderful location, is very clean and well laid out with large comfortable chalets. Although you can only access the hotel by boat there is a good service into Alleppey, and they are willing to provide transport as required.

The hotel has a good pool raised above the lake however there are only 10 loungers and a few plastic chairs and the pool attendents allowed some guests to reserve loungers by the payment of "Baksheesh"!! Apart from a few childrens swings there is little else to do around the hotel.

Our main complaing of the hotel is about the food in the restaurant.
The buffett is very poor and the a la carte menu is very expensive. When ordering from the a la carte menu we never received what we ordered and always a much inferior meal to what was on the menu. Eventually we went down to Alleppey for our evening meals which allowed us to eat at less than half the price for a 100 % better meal.

Kadavu Resort on national highway. Very serene and tranquil.
Cottages are well maintained. Ayurveda services seem genuine and effective. -a weeks therapy is really rejuvinative, although prescribed diets make you hungry. Property seems to be well maintained, but boating is substandard.Staff are friendly and english speaking with traditional folded hands gesture of "Namesthe".
Food is done well and tasty, though English wines not available.
A place I desire to recommend

We stayed in the Lake palace hotel in Alleppey as we could not find any last minute reservations at the Kumarakum Lake Resort and the Coconut Lagoon resort. We were expecting nothing much from Lake Palace as we were disappointed about not getting our prefered hotels. To our amazement the resort was not only beautiful but also very well maintained. We stayed in the Water Villa and it was surrounded by water on all sides. There was only a little bridge to connect us to our cottage. The view from the porch was wonderful with mirror like water and colorful fishes in it. The food at the restaurant was tasty and the staff courteous. There was a complimentary boat ride in the evening which took us into the backwaters for great panoraminc views. You could see houseboats floating quitely in the still waters. The staff makes you feel like royalty. Special mention of the General manager Joseph for being very polite. We stayed 2 blissful nights at the resorts and will highly recommend trying if you are visiting the Kumarakum/ Alleppey areas. Alleppey is known as the Venice of East and Lake Palace makes the experience complete.
