“Honey Moon at Bolgatty Island Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

We stayed two nights during our Honey Moon at Bolgatty Island Resort, Kochin. We received a warm welcome, nice Honey Moon suite and great service. The location of the resort is superb, surrounded by Vembanad Lake and the other side of main Kochin city. You will get a city view from the outside garden and port view from the inside garden. The Picturesque beauty of the Island, the Heritage style and Modern amenities gave us an awesome experience of life. The Bar and Restaurant both were very good. The food quality was excellent. We choose buffet and can’t forget the variety of foods in breakfast and dinner. The swimming pool was amazing, it will be better to spent day time in resort by using it.

Room Tip: We stayed in a corner suite at Ground Floor, it has a nice balcony. It was very quiet but you would...

We had a great Stay..!!
We experienced great Service for Sure..!!
The swimming pool is amazing..!!
The locales I dont need to tell are exotic..!!
Only thing that if you are being promised candle-lit dinner then do not opt for it, as there are too many mosquitos in the night to let you sit outside the restaurant and eat on a table..You have to sit inside the AC restaurant..

Room Tip: All rooms are nice..

Unkept, the grass and plants are growing wild. The rooms are spacious but once again dimly lit and badly maintained, the bathrooms are dirty. the walls have all kinds of insects stuck which have not been cleaned for a long long time. A typical govt. property without anyone taking ownership. The food is best avoided.

Room Tip: Please dont take the cottage , they look desolate and terrible

The location of the hotel is excellent with a view of the backwaters and the container terminal. The jetty is close by for a trip to Fort Kochi or the mainland. The rooms are pretty clean but the furniture and tapestries are pretty old and look a little worn out. Service is decent but lacks professionalism. The hotel bar serves only beer and no hard liquor and buying your own hard liquor in Kerala is a problem so go well prepared. The bar and the restaurant both close at 10 pm and you are forced to go out to get food if you prefer eating late. Checking for other eateries in the night if you are driving is a problem since random checking for drunken driven is on. The pool is nice and clean and the ayurvedic spa is nothing to write home about. Other spas give you a professional service and have a nice feel to it compared to the one here. Mainly because it is government run I guess. The food is pretty decent but would be a little spicy for foreigners and not too much of a choice of continental food.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor of the new building are pretty large and the honey moon cottage near th...
