All the better for being tucked away within easy reach of everything in Cochin. We stayed in a couple of places owned by 'ex-pats' in our three week holiday through South India and felt slightly uncomfortable, difficult to describe how...BUT NOT HERE...we felt extremely comfortable and well cared for by everyone, so much so we've booked a longer stay in...

This is a wonderful place to stay, close to everything in Fort Kochi. The rooms are large and have a stunning decor. After a hot day of walking around Kochi the inground pool was a welcome relief. The breakfast, which is included, was freshly made each morning and included a number of options. We actually had dinner there 2 of... More

Exceptional staff!!! Can't say enough good things about our hostess and her amazing staff. Took care of our every need with a sincere conviction to make our stay a most pleasant one. The rooms had an old charm without being dated. Poolside patio was a fantastic place to hang out and relax. Pool itself was just deep enough and large... More

A perfect hideaway. We got very lost trying to find it, and then trying to find a restaurant, but once we had got our bearings the following day, it was ideal. The rooms were large & clean. The bathrooms a bit musty. The swimming pool was perfect after the heat of the city. Go to Santis yoga classes. One of... More

Great value, a great host, nice pool. We had a good room, the breakfasts are tasty and fresh and once you find the place it is well situated in Fort Kochi. The yoga session was well worth doing. Very helpful staff too,

We stayed here for our first night in India and it was perfect. A beautiful and tranquil retreat from the vibrant hustle and bustle of Fort Kochi. We received a very warm welcome on arrival, after a long flight. The rooms were cool and relaxing and the pool and gardens were wonderful- all a perfect way to get over the... More

We spent three lovely days at Secret Garden in Kochi. It was the best hotel-experience of our trip. We were treated like family by the lovely staff and the hotelowner Thora. Being there felt a bit like being at home, except cleaner and more beautiful. Thora even took the time to show us around town. An unforgettable experience, going to... More

We staged with out four kids three days in this beautiful place. The location is very central and makes it easy to visit Cochin. The staff is very friendly and helped to organise a car and driver for 10 days. The hotel is small, but the rooms are spacious and have wonderful decorations and nice furniture. The pool is clean...
