A VISIT TO BOLGHATY ISLAND HOTEL

Recently I was at the Bolghaty Island Palace hotel run by Kerala Tourism Development Corporation. Earlier this hotel could be approached only by boat. Now a road over bridge has been built from mainland Kochi and therefore it can be reached by road also. Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure. Best wishes.
