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

Last time we stayed in Kochi we had hoped to visit the Palace but ran out of time. This trip we did make it! We didn't stay here so I can't comment on the rooms etc. We caught an auto from Ernakulam and 50 rupees later we were at the entrance to the resort. We explained to the gate security... More

Stayed in this beautiful hotel for a couple of days in the first week of February along with my wife. The hotel is situated on a large manicured property overlooking a marina and a shimmering river. The rooms are pretty decent for the price and seems to be well maintained. Some rooms are facing the beautiful river and other are... More

Bolgatty Island resort is a three storied usual building. Nothing great. You get marine view but it is only backwater. Take room in Bolgatty palace. Nice amazing ambience. But there is no water view. Palace has swimming pool, restaurant spa and places to relax. Island resort has recreation room with carrom, snooker and table tennis and nice gym. But all... More

Wow this place is nothing like the positive reviews I read! It's a sad hotel that could be ok. Run down, strange staff I think they are employed by some government tourist scheme. The loo in our room ran all night, so they fixed it - didn't flush at all. Stay somewhere else.

It was really nice in the morning. When we woke up we went for a woke to explore the grounds. We booked... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Bolgatty Palace hotel. The reason for choosing this hotel was the feedback we had received earlier from friends about the property being one of the best in Cochin. The property is definitely very nice, but the hotel rooms and service were absolutely poor. The rooms, though spacious, were poorly maintained, with things coming off... More

We stayed here for 1 night on Dec 22, 2014. This is a heritage resort located in an excellent surroundings, with a marina adjacent to it. You could take a ferry or auto-rickshaw (3 wheeler equivalent of tuk-tuk) to go to the shopping and eating places in town. We stayed in the Marina suite room and this was spacious, comfortable...
