Palm Grove Lake Resort.: "As much or as little as you want to Spend" India Hotel Tip by Vintom

India Hotels: 376 reviews and 459 photos


In India more than any other country I have visited, the cost of accomodation can range from virtually very little to Very expensive.

i have never stayed at the more expensive type hotels, choosing instead to use budget accomodation where possible. I see most accomodation as merely a place to sleep for the night, and somewhere to wash of the dirt from traveling.
In general India is very good value for accomodation and you can be pleasantly surprised by what you can get for very little money.

Unique Qualities: The first place I am going to mention is the Palm Grove Lake resort. A posh sounding name, but well within the budget of a modest traveller, and an absolutely idylic place to view the Backwaters from.

the accomodation is made up of five bamboo cabins, all of them with there own cold water shower set outside in the small enclosed yard. Even the toilet and wash basin are outside of the cabin. A wonderful experience to say the least. see next tip for picture.

Price Comparison: about average
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Pension/Guesthouse

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
