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...

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.
