Longing for some peace and solitude in your travels in Southern India? We found Gama Heritage a tranquil spot, although very basic in accommodations. Once a convent, Gama Heritage not only has the outside grounds to isolate itself from neighboring noise, but has enough rooms to have its guests fairly separate from one another, too. (None of the typical business... More

We stayed here with a tour group through G adventures and it was one of my favorites! The staff were very nice and the rooms were roomy and clean. They did smell a bit musty and it seemed the hot water didn't always work but overall it was a great hotel. They were more than accommodating and if I were... More

We stayed here 2 nights, the first and the last night of our Beaches & Backwaters tour. The hotel is comfortable and clean and in a nice location in Fort Cochin. The staff are kind, friendly and very helpful. It was everything we needed!

We ended up at Gama on a few occasions in December/Jan after some problems with flights - everyone there was so helpful and accommodating: asking if we'd like to use a spare room to freshen up before our evening flight (even though we'd checked out that morning). Lots of helpful, friendly touches. The building itself is immaculately clean, fairly central... More

I'm surprised at the mixed reviews of this excellent little hotel. We stayed two nights recently and can't speak highly enough of the staff - they were present without being overwhelming, helpful and great for suggestions. The location is in the tourist precinct of Fort Cochin which meant we could work to the waterfront, the old town, the churches and... More
