"Dutch Heritage experience in Kochi"

5.9/7
Posted 8 Mar

Very rustic yet modern.. With serene and scenic views, this palace hotel offers best of the harbour views from each room here. Staff is courteous, food is very good. Preferably go for the harbour view bungalow or rooms, avoid Marina view rooms. Very calm and peaceful property.

"Best for families "

7.0/7
Posted 22 Jan, 2016

Bolgatty Palace Hotel is actually an old palace, it is a must see place as it is Dutch style palace. The rooms are well maintained and are very nostalgic. The back side of the hotel gives a panoramic view of the backwaters of Kochi. The hotel have a houseboat which gives a wonderful sightseeing tour in the evening. The hotel is managed by Kerala government. Best for families.

"Different experience in an Island Resort"

6.4/7
Posted 21 Dec, 2015

This property is owned by KTDC. High standard accommodation in Dutch Palace, built in 1744, is available. Rooms of various other affordable standards viz, Marine view, Lake view, Golf view are also available in a separate building. Rooms are comfortable with scenic beauty. We stayed in a lake view room. We had a nice and joyful stay. Standard of food was excellent but bit costly. We spent quality time in the early morning moving around the Resort compound surrounding by the Vembanad Lake. Being located in an island you have to depend on transport. Highly recommended resort in Kochi.

"Kerala is one of the best tourist destinations in..."

4.6/7
Posted 17 Mar, 2006

Kerala is one of the best tourist destinations in India. While most places in India are great in terms of natural beauty, Kerala is equipped with the right infrastructure enabling you to enjoy it better. Bolgatty Palace, as a reort, is gorgeous. The rooms are big and the buildings are really nice. In fact, Waterscapes in Kumarakom (another KTDC property) is very different and really well laid out. Its right on Vembanad Lake, the rooms are on stilts and there are hammocks under the rooms. The beach of Samudra Resort, Kovalam (another KTDC resort) is really much better than the main Kovalam Beach.

6.5/7
Posted 5 Dec, 2010

I was on a business trip while the experience was very refreshing. As soon as I reached the jetty, I gave a call and in a jiffy, there was a boat to pick me up. The check in was very smooth. The staff was helpful in getting me the transport that I eeded for the day. The hotel is an old Dutch palace. Very vast, fantastic setting on the banks of the lake, lush lawns, pool and its own jetty. The room was extra large with a big balcony attached.

"I had gone to kerala with my husband and our first..."

5.4/7
Posted 28 Aug, 2010

I had gone to kerala with my husband and our first destination was Cochin as it the airport city. And from Airport, directly to Bolgatty Palace.. When we wer about to reach hotel, driver took us from a very kacha road.. and my husband was worrying what kind of hotel it would be.. but in the last.. when we reached.. it was awesome..As we were tired, we directly went into the room. The room was very nice with all the facilities provided and yes balcony attached from where the whole whole hotel area with swimming pool could be seen easily.The hotel was in huge area and one would enjoy the decor of the hotel. They also had free boat service for its nearby areas. Actualy comig through boat is I think the main way for the hotel. Overall, a nice and memorable experience
