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 in the kettle. Bathroom was newly renovated and very large. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is adequate but minimal. I did try the pool which was good on a hot humid afternoon. The grounds are not as glamorous as the photos imply but it was clean and tidy. Short walk to the Chinese fishing nets and even on to the Jewish town. The waterfront is quite touristy and the rubbish in the water was very, very sad. Stall sellers put the hard word on you and the tuk tuk drivers are equally persistent. Luckily we had a fantastic man take us around on the last day to places where tourists don't usually go. Very good to see the "real" Kochi.
