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....

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...

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!

The Bolgatty palace is not upto KTDC standards as its other hotels in Kovalam or Thekkady. The room was small and the bathroom was very small. The staffs were helpful though. The dining room was spacious but have limited items for the breakfast. The dinner was also not very good and too costly.

The island is very good and well spread over s few acres along with Sprawling garden, golf course and private jetty. And it is as good as it can be when suchproperties are typically managed by the Government department. I stayed for two days in two different rooms. Found the marine view room better. The food quality and taste both...

Bolgatty Palace was a serene experience with a laid back surrounding area , an island resort which relaxed us. However our package included food, which was pretty bland. Buffet spread was satisfying but the taste of food needs to improve, if the resort wants more visitors. Rooms and surroundings were neat and tidy. Overall a pleasant experience.

This place is very outdated! It was probably once a very nice looking place, but now it definitely needs to be refurbished! The bedrooms are outdated and hygiene is unsatisfactory. I had stains on the sheets, dead mosquito corpses and developed a rash since a few days, which I sincerely hope is not the result of bed bugs! Hardly any...
