Without doubt this is the most romantic place to be in all of Fort Cochin. Facing the Arabian Sea with its perpetual breeze, but delicately hidden behind the greenery, the visitor is secluded from the hussle of the tourist hub at Fort Cochin, neverthless is a very short walk to all the enchantment of Fort Cochin. I was welcomed embarassingly... More

Looks lovely, but a bit shabby on closer inspection. chaotic service. Our booking was lost and it took around 5 hours to sort out. We were promised compensation for a wasted day of our holiday. Got nothing!

I just went to the restaurant but sadly didn't find it very appealing. The food was just okay, very less in quantity but too pricey. 😕 The workers seem to be inexperienced. The view is good though. And I think the rooms are good too.

Our room was absolutely beautiful and quite spacious - tastefully decorated with lovely antiques and accents of beautiful colours. It was kept immaculate by the housekeeping staff and we... More

I visited here twice with my sister whilst staying in kochi just to get a break from the hustle bustle of everyday life. It's an incredibly relaxing hotel, very beautiful setting and building and the service was very good. I do think service is a little expensive, prepare to be taxed Heavily. However it is worth it, the food is... More

Our experience started well before arriving with the nicely written introduction and welcome letter. The great customer contact continued throughout our stay; extremely nice staff and considerate service. Because of delays in getting our visa we arrived a few days late for our stay. Taking pity on us the hotel offered us a room upgrade and free meals for the... More
