We were there in April 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay for 2 nights. Run by KTDC and having its own golf course, the history goes back to 1744 of the Dutch Palace. We enjoyed nice view of the Kochi Marina front from our balconies of our Marina villas. Food was good, not excellent though. It has an Ayurveda centre as well. The sunset view is also excellent from this location. The swimming pool is just near the restaurant.

Room Tip: Go for the marina view villas or any room on the marina front.

The resort has a wonderful location - it is on an island (duh!) facing the Ernakulam marine drive. It offers a very nice panoramic view stretching across the marine drive all the way to the Cochin shipyard. In the evenings and after dark, the scenery is breath-taking. The swimming pool is really small, and is useful only for taking a dip and keeping the scorching heat away. No serious exercise is possible! The dinner was not exactly kids-friendly, every item on the buffet was too hot and spicy for the kids. The breakfast was better, but then you can't go much wrong with eggs and toast... On the service front, this was the first hotel which offered us an extra bed, without we asking for it!!

Room Tip: Rooms on either side offer a view of the Vembanad lake, so not much to choose from!

Located at a great place and big area. But the hotel seems to be over-hyped. Main attraction found was a swimming pool that is not that great as in Hotel Samudra. Food was good on the expensive side. Rooms were great .

Room Tip: take rooms at 1st floor

Had seen the KTDC website pictures for the various resorts so many times...it was almost unbelievable some place could really be as pretty as the pics posted online! But this one really is...the resort is amazing, the staff very friendly and helpful and the facilities awesome! The one -ive would be is 40 kms from the airport, so kindda a let down in terms of traveling but then again the airport is far away from the city, so it really doesn't matter cuz the rest of the attractions in Kochi are close to this resort!

Room Tip: The base building has resortish rooms but the ones newly built called the Marina Rooms overlook the Marine Drive, so if you're a waterbody fan like us, you should go for the Marina ones :)

This KTDC property is located on the property of an old Dutch Palace. Its about 5 mins speed boat ride to the city and is also connected by road. Really exclusive location for a short holiday and unwinding. Staff are really helpful and polite. Rooms are also large and nice. Food and breakfast are also good. This place is totally recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms on ground floor have better access to all amenities
