Traveled here with my family on a recent relaxing holiday to Kerela backwaters. Though Kochi itself can be skipped as a destination, I would recommend travelers to choose a hotel in Fort Kochi area if at all you plan to stay here.
Bolagatty Island Resort is a beautiful property but thats it! It's not managed well, food is horrible and the service is below average. The property has so much to offer from open spaces to fantastic city/island views however KTDC has not taken care of the resort.
Rooms are clean and spacious, but need some renovation to keep up with the Kerela tourism industry (as travelers are looking for a little more luxury).
There is just one restaurant where the food was horrible right from lunch to dinner. The Breakfast being the only crown but that too the one which has lost it's shine.
Located on an island keeps it way from the buzzing Kochi traffic which also means travelling to popular areas like Fort Kochi, City Center or even the airport could take a while.
Overall, an average experience and not a place to return to.
