Bolgatty Island in Kochi

Bolgatty Island is a picturesque island located near Fort Kochi in Ernakulam district. It is famous for its eponymous palace along with being a growing cosmopolitan hotspot in the area. The Bolgatty Palace was built in 1744 by the Dutch and was eventually taken over by the British. This has now been transformed into a famous Kerala Tourism Department Corporation (KTDC) Hotel and Resort and boasts of its own golf course and honeymoon cottages.

The Kochi International Marina is situated here. It is the only marina of its type in India and can host up to 34 yachts alongside water, electricity and sewage pump-out facilities. The Bolgatty Event Centre is renowned for hosting a large number of international conferences, conventions, exhibitions and wedding ceremonies. With the backwaters, Cochin Seaport, Vallarpadam Container Terminal and the Arabian Sea overlooking it, there is no better location to host such important events.
