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...

We loved the Secret Garden. Yes, there was building work going on but it did not bother us one iota. This is a jewel in Kochi and deserves to be better known. Thora, the owner, is a fount of knowledge. Her team of staff are friendly, hospitable and go out of their way to ensure your stay is comfortable. We... More

We were pretty happy with our stay at The Secret Garden. Our room was small, but had good a/c. There was a 4-poster bed with mosquito netting. The bathroom was large, but as the shower has nothing to stop it splashing everywhere, the entire floor got soaked when we used it :(. The place was distressingly noisy during the day,... More

The Secret Garden is tucked away in the backstreets of Fort Cochin and well worth a visit. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean and beautifully presented. Although there is no full restaurant service available, breakfast was delicious especially the 'Indian breakfast'. The hotel is a short walk from a couple of excellent restaurants, so evening meals are no problem. Unfortunately,... More

This was our first proper stop in Kerala after getting off the train from Chennai and we arrived early in the morning. We were welcomed, given breakfast and shown our rooms as soon as was possible and we are very grateful for that! Our room was stunning and enormous. The veranda and all of the architecture was amazing. Thora, the... More

The Secret Garden was our oasis and we loved every minute! Pool, atmosphere, beautiful veranda and our favourite double daybed with mural was stunning. Loved the robes and the easy walking to restaurants etc. Staff were great, Thora wasn't there at the time. Was offered eggs for brekkie as I couldn't eat bread which was good and the morning pineapple... More

Stylish but not snobish and very reasonnably priced for what you get in term of comfort and service in this top mid range category. I liked the fact that Secret Garden is a little bit away from the tourist zone (10 mn walk) in a nice and green neighbourhood which is safe at night. The heritage decoration is cool and... More
