This is exactly what we expect of a holiday hotel: a cosy place where everything has been carefully thought out so we can you let our hair down and enjoy our free time. Staff is irreproachable, rooms are beautiful and comfortable, location is fantastic, food is delicious, pool is very convenient. We strong heartily recommend Secret Garden to all kinds... More

Not sure how to put this wonderful heritage hotel into words.... this place just had something special. Maybe it was the cool retreat from the heat and what was, for us, the somewhat less than noteworthy experience of Cochin. Secret Garden is beautifully designed and run, the attention to detail is amazing, the architectural influence of the owner is apparent... More

I booked this on a review in the Lonely Planet Guide and we weren't disappointed. Walking into this lovely hotel, with a pool surrounded by verandahs and pretty rooms was a treat. An abundance of wood, comfy chairs. The rooms were well prepared and cool with mosquito nets and attention to detail. With no pool restrictions, I asked if I... More

This garden is a iland of calm, birds singing in a small jungle. The rooms of this traditional house are huge and wunderfully painted. Dora wellcomes you personally and helps with whatever you need to know. Every morning you may join the yoga group under the trees. A place where a dream came true.

In an unassuming urban location within easy walking distance from the centre of Kochin, one quickly feels at home in this small hotel. Our pleasant room with large mosquito netted bed overlooked the pool which, though inviting, was unfortunately too warm to be refreshing. The shower room was more like a wet room as the water didn't drain away efficiently... More

Quietly located, but within pleasant walking distance of all the sights. Comfortable and quiet room by the pool. Breakfast not the best but adequate. The ambience more than made up for it. A good one evening stay over at the start to our holiday.

A quiet location yet within 10 minutes walking distance of all the Fort Cochin sights. Faisal and Thora treat us as friends now - our 4th year here. Rooms are very comfortable, beds with mosqito nets and good a/c. Clean small pool for relaxing after a morning out. Helpful staff re places to buy various items or where to find... More

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...
