We reached here at around 4:30 pm after a long journey from Munnar. So we really cherished the cool refreshing smoothies that we were given when we reached the reception. It is said that the place used to be a King's residence which has now been converted to a resort. The resort is spread over a large area. I'll give... More

Okay!! first things first - if you are booking KTDC proeprties in Kerala, make sure to remove Dinner from the package..as through out they will serve you same which gets a tad bit boring.

The fact is we love Bolgatty Palace. This is our sixth visit and we have stayed in most of the sections apart from the very posh suite! This time we stayed on the first floor of the main building - room 201 - which was lovely and had a peaceful balcony overlooking the back of the property. As usual the... More

The property here is really big and of the attraction to see in cochin. The suite here is really big and used to be maharaja's residence. It also has a golf course. One must select this hotel if you get a good deal. Breakfast here is average and you might find the same menu repeated, which happened with us.Staff is... More

Bolgatty Palace by names heard to be a palace, but it is a Hotel managed by KTDC. It is over an island popularly known as Bolghatty Island in Kochi. The entrance of it is not that good if you are coming over your own vehicle, but the resort built up in Dutch Style is too good. The food they serve,... More

We stayed in room 305 one of the two honeymoon cottages overlooking the lake. A circular building raised on supports with an exterior staircase. We had our own balcony and a rain tree beside us. The room was clean and had everything we needed. There is a separate bar -- no one seems to use and a restaurant with buffet.... More

Found out 3 places & finalised on Bolgatty Palace & Island Resorts, only because of the view from the Rooms. First wanted to take a deluxe room in the Island portion of... More

I stayed there on 15th dec night enroute to munnar. Stayed at their lake view rooms. Rooms very well placed but inside is a little rusty. The lake view rooms are at a distance from the hotel main and that may make you feel a little uneasy in the night. Food was good and check in was also smooth. Overall... More

We arrived here a month ago on a sailboat, and are staying in the attached marina. The staff have been awesome and as helpful as they could possibly be. The gardens are beautiful, I love walking my dogs there, and the dogs love it too! Chilling by the pool is always a very relaxing way to spend the afternoon, and... More
