Bolghatty Palace served as the home of the British Governors, the seat of the British Resident of Cochin during the British regime. In 1947, when India got her independence, the palace became the property of the state and later converted into a heritage hotel resort. 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.
