A fantastic property on the lagoons of Vembanad lake. The approach to hotel is by a 15 minute boat ride view of the hotel is mesmerising.
The staff is friendly, though you would not find a formal aura (like you would find in a chain hotel).
Room was spic and span with all 5 star ameneites. The hotel upkeep is good (no mosquitos). Interesting activities we enjoyed were fishing from our room rear balcony, 15 minute speed boat ride was superb, paddle boat ride to name a few.
4 km from the jetty is a Virgin beach you could see smalltime fisher men going out to the sea and return to beach and sell their catch to middle man. Then reurn to water again.
It is very important that you realise the difference of a beach and back water.
I suggest a back water stay in this resort than a house boat stay (you might get bored after 2 hrs).
My wife and I really had a great time time at Lake Palace Allepy
Ambience, location and activities (good for a 2 night 3 day stay). If you are staying longer then you need to spend time in the city it is a discovery for non Keralites.
They have conference centre. This hotel is also good for MICE meetings conference and offsite.
Areas they need to improve is the Swimming pool excess chlorine and unclear water.
