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....

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....

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.

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...

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...

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....

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...
