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. 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).
