This is a resort and a palace located on a island in Cochin.We took around 15 minutes to reach the resort from Ernakulam north railway station by taxi. The service at the reception was prompt and we had rooms at the Marina building (new block). The room and bathroom was neat and clean and we had no problems with the... More

This property is well situated away from the city chaos. The swimming pool is good however it isnt maintained regularly. Rooms are big in size with good wooden flooring. Few rooms have bathtubs in its bathroom. The food in restaurant is decent but a little expensive.

I visited the historically important Bolgatty Palace twice in my life. One, in 1992 and other in 2015. The hotel has lost its charm as the holiday destination. Its now just another hotel. Only the golf course is worth mentioning. Though the hotel has modified, the additions has made the loss the elegance oghe building. Now the hotel virtually degraded... More

So many things let this hotel down. The property is set in beautiful gardens on a nearby island which gives a great first impression. There is also a lovely swimming pool, good security and views out over the Arabian Sea. But, the rooms were very basic for the price and the service was atrocious. When I called and the reception...

As any other typical KTDC hotels, maintenance is almost nill. The property is fabulous with great scenery all around (ofcource since its an island in Arabian sea). I went with my friends to their Beer & Wine parlor, the Beer was properly chilled and the sides we orders were also good. Bartender was very courteous and helpful, occasionally joining us... More

As we opted for KTDC package, Bolgatty Palace and Islaland Resort was the natural choice for us in Kochi. A long drive from Munnar was little bit tiresome but Kochi with its lavish beauty greeted us well but could not imagine what was waiting for us. This old palace built by Dutch traders is the oldest one outside Holland was... More
