We are a senior citizen couple who stayed in this hotel between 14th and 18th August 2015 in room no, 306. This has so far the most depressing and forgettable holiday experience ever. While booking the only brief I gave them was that we wanted a room that faces a water body - be it the back waters or the... More

This is a nice resort run by the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation. The property is extremely beautiful and it is at an excellent location. The rooms we booked were lakefront rooms which were secluded and a bit run down but had an excellent view and were very nice but had to shift rooms in the night due to some air... More

Bolgatty a Palace and resorts is an old palace belonging to Kochi royalty . Rooms are big, well maintained with modern decor and very cosy. Food is good, not great. The best part about the property is that it's located on an island giving magnificent view of Kochi harbour, town and marine drive. The view of marine drive after sunset... More

We have stayed at Bolgatty island resort 3-4 times by now, the latest being in Jan. 2014 and find the location ideal to chill out with the serene atmosphere and excellent views. The hotel must have been very charming during the old days but as of now the carpets have frayed & faded, the room furnishings could do with some... More

Great location for a hotel, big and well furnished rooms - but not managed too well like most government managed properties. There were mosquitoes in the room, despite the a/c and mosquite repellant. Food in the restaurant was just passable. Staff though are very helpful and responsive. Has great potential given its location.

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.
