Kerala India

Am now at Bolgatty Island  where I am staying at Bolgatty Palace 

Restaurant

Bolgatty Palace is a former palace built by the Dutch in India, located on the island popularly known as Bolghatty Island in Kochi, Kerala. One of the oldest existing Dutch palaces outside Holland, this quaint mansion, built in 1744 by Dutch traders, was later extended and gardens were landscaped around it. The building was then the Governor’s palace for the commander of Dutch Malabar, and later in 1909 was leased to the British. It served as the home of the British Governors, being the seat of the British Resident of Cochin during the British Raj

In 1947, when India attained independence, the palace became the property of the state and was later converted into a heritage hotel resort. Bolgatty Palace now has a swimming pool, 9-hole golf course, ayurvedic centre and daily Kathakali performances and is a holiday destination for Indian and overseas tourists.

Golf Club

The Resort is located at one end of the Island and the buildings are surrounded by beautifully maintained landscaped gardens which are lush and green and full of flowering trees. It is very peaceful and relaxing.

There is a Marina at the Property which yachts can moor and international craft use the Marina as well as Indian cruisers. The facilities are excellent.

Accommodation is in various parts of the extensive buildings. I am staying at the Marina View rooms which is opposite the Marina. This is the view from my room.
