“Best hotel stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The first impression of this awesome hotel is one of pure loveliness. the staff, the decor, the service and the food are just amazing. I have never been looked after so well by hotel staff. They were always very polite and serviceable. The facilites are extremely clean and fresh. I will definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends and will most certainly return next year!

Room Tip: The garden cottage are just pure luxury but so worth it!

Having stayed in Old Harbour last year, I knew Raintree, its sister hotel, was going to be the perfect place to stay for five days.

The hotel is immaculate and the housekeeping staff, in particular Chechi, were professional and friendly. The room itself was light, airy and its decor was stylish.

Boshi was incredibly helpful and welcomed us with such a smile! He gave us fantastic advice on places to visit and places to eat- Kashi's breakfasts are delicious! John was also wonderful, so helpful and could not do more to help us.

Definitely a hotel I would return to!

We had a large well appointed room with excellent furnishings. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. The staff we found to be courteous and helpful and obtained a reasonable car with driver for us, for a day. The only disadvantage was breakfast, having to leave the hotel to find somewhere.

I have stayed at the Raintree Lodge many times. It is reasonably priced but just that cut above other cheap Indian hotels. It is tasteful but simple and comfortable. Edgar, who owns the Old Harbour Inn, as well, has seen to this. Go to the Kashi Art Cafe for breakfast - just a short walk from the hotel. I prefer the upstairs rooms with a balcony overlooking the street.

Inexpensive, but everything important was great - big clean room with bathroom, working aircon, hot water, comfy (if firm) bed. Very friendly team as well. No breakfast, but the Teapot cafe is a couple of doors down and good.

I'd certainly stay here again.

Raintree, is ideally situated in the heart of Fort Kochin, with very well decorated rooms and terrasse. Travelling as a family of 4, we rented Eternity House just next door (part of Raintree), which consist of a house with 2 bedrooms, lounge, inclosed and covered well decorated patio and a kitchen. Great!
Spotless clean and a very friendly staff and cleaner.

Room Tip: For families, the only good option is Eternity House as the others rooms are rather small for a fami...
