Bolgatty Palace Cochin
Former Palace in Lovely Gardens on an Island
We did not stay here but had we needed a hotel this is where I would have chosen to stay. Our backwaters cruise included a stop here for afternoon tea with time to explore the gardens and public rooms of the hotel. Bult by the Dutch as a Palce in the 16th century it later became the residence of the British Governor until Independence when it was handed over to the State. The building is now listed as a Heritage Hotel The setting is beautiful and the service impeccable.
Quiet, Relaxing Accomodation...
The rooms were very large and clean and nice...A very nice swimming pool, a Beer Parlour and an awesome restaurant..Also has an Ayurvedic Center..It is a 5 minute boat ride across the backwaters from High Court Jetty Ernakulam...I would stay there again...most definately...
Unique Quality: The pool is really nice and you can watch the fishing boats early in the morning...It is very quiet and relaxing, and the staff was so friendly...Short ferry ride from Fort Cochin where you can see the Chinese Fishing nets, Jewish Synagogue, etc..
Directions: It is a 5 minute boat ride across the backwaters from High Court Jetty Ernakulam.
Live like a Maharaja or a Dutch Governor
This is one of the more pleasant places to stay in Cochin. Situated in its own island, a short boat ride away is the Bolgatty Palace which is now converted into a convenient hotel. A former residence of the Dutch Governor the place reeks of history.
Unique Quality: If you are with your significant other, this is a most romantic place. There are secluded cottages and it is a fine place to watch the sunset.
An old 17th century dutch palace in a little island in Cochin Bay. They are nowadays refurbishing, so ask first for availability. A quiet place, but too many ferries to reach the island from Fort Cochin. .
Unique Quality: 1200 Rs for a single (Low Season)
