This is one of the best locations in Kochi. An island which was connected to the mainland in last lustrum. I would call this as a exotic location with a vintage palace proclaiming the glory of the past, excellent view of the port from west, luminous city view at east and rest of the view are of the backwater and the Arabian sea. Sprawling garden, yacht club - and yachts, horse riding, mini golf area, a new mega convention center in the neighborhood by Lulu group, Container terminal etc. Never ... Read more

For us this was an amazing experience considering it was part of an extended honeymoon. We had a treehouse room and in the center of it was a glass floor, that allowed you to look down onto the water. The whole thing was wow!

Its the staff that I had real trouble with. They don't know any language to communicate with the tourists. What's the point if you can't speak in English or Hindi and your are trying to welcome guests from across the world. They would like you to speak in their or international language. Not Malayalam. This is against tourism. I wouldn't want to come back to Kerala because of rude people.

Just imagine you are comfortably perched in the balcony of your hotel room overlooking the marina and watching huge dark clouds filling every inch of the sky then most probably you have checked in into Bolgaty Palace Hotel in Cochin. Just relax and listen to the footfalls of monsoon. Indulge in aroma of authentic malabar cuisine. Don't think of tomorrow. Forgot your office keep your worries for tomorrow. Worship the raingod today and enjoy Meghmalhar the monsoon. I'm just doing that.

We stayed here as part of a holiday package booked with KTDC. The resort was merely looked like a park. Pool was not big enough and we hardly saw anyone by the pool. Rooms were neat and tidy. Better to book the rooms looking the Kochin waters. The night and morning views were splendid and good for those who are into photography, especially when it dusks and dawns. Meals were really average when compared to the other KTDC properties. The dinner was a buffet, not much impressive. It was the sam... Read more

The location is in the best part of the city. The staffs are very cooperative. The rooms are very neat and well maintained. The scenery from the rooms are awesome and beyond words. One should go and experience it. There are so many facilities for enjoyment including boating, gymnasium, games zone etc. There is swimming pool to relax and exercise. Food is super. The complementary breakfast is good.

Visited the place as part of work conference. Wi Fi is available only at the reception building. So be aware of that limitation. We saw the palace suites. But it was muggy. We stayed in the deluxe room - it was actually much better and got a good view as well. Food is decent and the swimming pool is ok. The golf holes are all filled with weeds and are trimmed. Surprised that people still golfed there. Overall - decent. But if the amenities are maintained well; it will be a lot more worth it.

+ good scenic beauty + good atmosphere outside + good for a week end stay, for adults as there is no recreation for children + respecting the effort to maintain a historic place Recommendable for Med-low budget resort stay! Although other better maintained, options are available... - below average room quality and maintenance -below average food at breakfast, better foods are available in any other hotel at that price -staffs and professional touch is missing

The very first thing you will suddenly notice as you struggle your way through the hustle and bustle of the concrete city, is the lush green and peaceful island surrounded by water bodies in middle of nowhere. The property is divided into two parts where the first one houses the bolgatty palace- the largest dutch palace outside Holland. The palace has got it's own set of palace suites which are bit costly. This block also houses the reception along with restaurant, spa etc. The second block, whi... Read more

Approaching Bolgatty Palace and Island Resort my mind was skimming through the various pieces I had read up about the Dutch in the Malabar region. As we reached the island, the thought of staying in the premises of a heritage property had completely possessed us. But soon the excitement turned into a huge disappointment even after getting an upgrade to stay in one of the heritage suits! As we checked into the room in the resort section we realised there was issue with the air conditioning. We w... Read more

Bolgatty Island offers you one of the best experience of stay in Cochin. You have lot of area to walk through and the colonial architecture also amazes you. The food is excellent and the service of the staff could be improved. I guess this has all the negativeness of being managed by Tourism Dept of Kerala Govt.

We stayed here in Dec 2015 and we found it to be quite well maintained. Our apprehensions of it being a govt property were unfounded after we found the staff to be very courteous. We took a tour of the Dutch palace and i guess the location is the best you could get. The breakfast could have been slightly better. Rest all was fine.

The scenic beauty of the island is awesome. The backwaters offers scintillating moments. We can enjoy the fun (activities) being conducted by the resort. The resort has become a prime location for film shoot. It offers a wonderful ambience to those who stay here. A drawback observed by me is the lack of professionalism in welcoming and guiding the tourists. If this part is corrected, the resort will obviously be an ideal spot for both domestic and international tourists.

It a good property and view of back water from swimming pool and other area is good. Price for lunch looks costly so we took food in room itself. Food was good. While exploring island we met assistant manager Mr Joseph found him very pleasant personality. Evening we saw kathakally make up and dance fo... Read more

Its a old dutch palace and converted to a hotel run by KTDC (Long time back) Was there for Conferance and Family meet . Went with low expectations as it was run by KTDC , but was pleasantly surprised by the good service. Rooms we got were large and spacious and clean.i Think it was renovated recently Food was just average . The hotel has a lot of space around it and it adds to the old world charm.

The reception was friendly and a little bizarre. The three ladies behind the front desk all smiled and nodded in unison. A glass of tepid watermelon juice was given to me upon arrival. There was a door opener man who was opening the lobby door the entire vacation. At night there were guards on the property standing up all night long. I had a view of the tennis courts and couldn't see the marina. It would have cost more for that I found out the day I arrived. My friend was staying at the marina o... Read more

It is an heritage indeed. Dutch palace and the islands. Only resort in Kochi having such an amazing view and serene environment. But management and service of KTDC is pathetic. Rooms are not in the up to mark conditions. Taps broken, door locks damaged, wooden work craving for polish etc.. View from rooms are simply awesome especially marina. Location wise it's the best but no service or upkeep of property. Restaurant has limited options and very poor quality of food as we as service. Better avo... Read more

We spent 3 nights at Bolgatty palace and although the setting is quite nice, the rooms are outdated and some were very dirty. Not only that but a lot of us got bitten by bed bugs. It is definitely far too expensive for what you get! The food is very average and definitely over priced. Although there is an outdoor pool, it was too warm and not properly maintained. There was no wifi in the rooms and it wasn't great in the lobby either. The service is fine but nothing special. I was very dis... Read more

It is located in a very quite area of the City - Bolgatty Island. Though a Govt. Owned property, we found the surroundings are clean, very good boat ride, located close to the busiest part - marine drive / MG Road etc. Responsible staff. Restaurant offers reasonably good food. There are two buildings (Totes) in this same compound - so please be very sure what you are looking for. One is classic property the other is a modern one with lower rates.

Bad service. AC not working in room on check in . AC mechanic came after 30 min on repeated call to reception. No menu card on room. To get I have to call house keeping and room service. Each of them show the other one. Food was just BAD. Only issue is natural beauty. So to keep this property a best destination for tourists it needs professionals to operate it. Government system cannot do justice to this property and the service part.
