A beautiful hotel no doubt, but at $170 CAD per night, was not even remotely worth what the property offers. Who the heck pays almost $200/night at a hotel in India? We had a few issues with the room once we got in. The ac was functioning properly and there was no wifi in the room as we were told.... More

Poovath is ideally located just on beach, next to Dutch cemetery and walk able distance from Chinese Fishing Nets, oldest church of India and old heritage properties all around. It is pleasure to just walk outside in bye-lanes to explore well kept old town of Cochin. The rooms are spacious with antique furniture and art effects. Well designed modern bath... More

The staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean, and bed comfortable. There was a good choice of food for breakfast. The location is central,restaurants within walking distance,and a hotel nearby where you can have a glass of wine and beer, It is easy to walk around the area visiting various sites that are recommended in Cochin old town.

Staff were great. Breakfasts... More

Poovath Hotel, Dutch Cemetery Road Fort Kochi. The Poovath is one of Amritara’s 10 “private hideaway” heritage hotels in India. (5 more are being built). It has just 10 rooms of which the two sea view rooms on the first floor are definitely the best. We found the small domestic scale and garden is added to by the friendliness of... More

Great location - right in the heart of Fort Kochi. Beautiful views of the Arabian Sea and heritage buildings all around. Comfortable rooms, huge bathrooms to plan your day and reflect on the day's experiences. Thoroughly enjoyable food & dining experience where you can feel the breeze. What more can one ask for in a City Hotel ?

The rooms were large and the bathroom was lovely and very well appointed, but the breakfast was absolutely dreadful. We had expected the hotel would have been at the minimum a 4* but sadly it was only a 3*. There was no alcohol served at the Hotel at all due to the restrictions in Kerala about alcohol not being served... More

The Poovath is OK. Stayed there for 2 nights in November. It is a very, very long way from Kochi airport to Fort Kochi (1.5 hrs) where the Poovath is located. The property is a 10 room, heritage building alongside the old Dutch Cemetery. The room we had was very, very small. Had to unplug the mini fridge to plug... More

Our extended family of eight stayed at the Poovath. And we all loved it! The house itself was beautiful, extremely well maintained and very tastefully decorated. We had the entire first floor to ourselves. It was intimate and private while still generous and spacious. The staff was very helpful and attentive. Great care was taken to make our stay memorable.... More
