A ferry transports you to this former maharaja's hunting lodge on an island inside the Lake Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, where you can spot wildlife from your balcony. Six simple rooms, some with period furniture, look out through a palm-lined pathway and beyond to the lake and the preserve. Meals at the eclectic, fixed-menu restaurant are included. This is one of two properties that is located inside the sanctuary. As the hotel is run by the state government, make reservations
through the KTDC.
