The staff couldn't be more attentive, I didn't like what I ordered for food, so it was immediately changed to suit my pallet, love the place, you must try it, not very expensive either , my husband ordered the fish platter of the day and it was to his liking.

A great entry point abode with the ocean calming your nerves and the decor of the historical site enticing and refreshing your mind and soul. This should be the place for your first night at Kochi. The restaurant is ideal for lunch or dinner with great ambiance. The food delectable! Please read the inscription on the wall for the information...

We had a nice dinner out on the patio. The seafood was all fresh, of course, and presented well. The evening was lovely and the location ideal. The staff was helpful and attentive. It was a bit difficult to get a vegetarian option but they tried.

A great little boutique hotel, ideal for a quiet & peaceful getaway. Great staff and very pretty grounds. The location is good if one wants to explore Fort Kochi. The Chinese fishing nets are a 10 min walk away. A note to the management: The water pressure could be improved in the showers.

This hotel is a delight. It is a few minutes away from the sometimes overwhelming noise and bustle of the centre, in a quiet leafy waterside setting. Overlooking the sea, it was designed to channel the onshore breeze through the ground floor level at the hottest hours of the day. We watched local fishermen pulling in their nets while we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chic luxury heritage boutique hotel in Fort Kochi. This is the latest treasure that has been created with great outdoor dining by the sea, one of the only spas that offers both western and traditional treatments in the area, and an infinity pool with great views of the sea and the English style garden. The indoor lounge is fantastic for a relaxing evening. The lighthouse bears witness to many a ship passing by and the ships that sail by seem to walk into the property. The hotel was the residence of the founder of Cochin port Sir Robert Bristow and has been receiving great reviews from all its guests. The hotel is a true sanctuary to relax and rediscover yourself. ... more   less
