A cultivated palm, growing in a hotel garden.
A dwarf variety, not like the other palms.

Could it be a Thrinax palm?

This seems to be a young Licuala grandis. Once again lack of stem
details makes ID doubtful. Regards, Shrikant

Mohan ji, Shrikant ji and Tanay,
Thanks for the id.
It seems to be Licuala grandis.
Many a times, pictures are taken very casually and in a hurry making
it a little difficult to take in all the details.
I had seen similar palms at Kochi, Kerala.
Regards,
Aarti
