Stayed here for a night to attend an Event near this hotel. Rooms are standard size with a private large verandah overlooking the tiny Fort Cochin beach. Bathrooms are also of good size. I only had breakfast there and their South Indian menu was too good and the food was excellent. Service was impeccable and there was always someone to... More

Warm welcome from always attentive and apparently happy staff. Beautifully furnished room with plenty of space and very convenient. Excellent and immaculate bed and bedding. The bathroom was clean and spacious and everything worked well. As the atmosphere was damp (because of the proximity of the ocean) it was quite difficult to dry towels or anything else. We enjoyed three... More

The Poovath is a very nice hotel however there is a but or two. The hotel grounds are charming the food pleasant and the staff delightful.

Easy walking to most attractions and those that were a little further away are more easily accessed via rickshaw. Haggle on the price though and ensure your driver has a pleasant demeanour and you will get a guided tour thrown in. The hotel itself however was a bit of a let down. No alcohol license ( not their fault as... More

Amritara Resorts were extremely helpful after we had to cancel our original booking due to unforeseen circumstances at home. When we finally arrived we checked into a comfortable, cool room.

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.

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.
