After a few days of staying in hostels, the Poovath was luxury. Air conditioned room, super clean. Bathroom was amazing. Great location, next to the beach, and about a 10 min walk to the Chinese fishing nets.

After travelling quite extensively over Kerala, we arrived in Fort Cochin and were delighted to find that we had booked our last 3 nights in the best hotel of all our travels. The Poovath Heritage Hotel overlooks the ocean and beach (great for walks along the sea front to the Chinese fishing boats and main heritage area) and the essential... More

This hotel I understand has recently been refurbished and is under new management. Some of the old photographs posted by guests are now misleading as the bathrooms are very modern and nicely fitted out. The air conditioning and fans work well. The hotel is located in its own grounds and is very private and secure. The buildings and contents are... More

the Poovath is a private place with perfect service although some restrictions given by the house structure. If people like the private style it is perfect - a boutique place. We enjoyed our nights here, at this perfect location, chinese nets and other places in walking distance. Dinner is perfect (we enjoyed with our family the X-mas dinner), breakfast can... More

Lovely old Dutch house positioned at the quieter end of Old Cochin. We had a delightful 1st floor corner room and balcony with views of the old Dutch cemetery, beach, Arabian Sea and stunning sunsets. We so enjoyed the uplifting early mornings of the beach coming to life as part of the local sunrise activities. Then a swim before breakfast... More

Room was spacious, bathroom brand new and the view of the Dutch cemetrary and Arabian Sea is hard to beat. Value for money compared to nearby Malabar House.
