Our room was spacious, comfortable and elegant, with lovely views over the beach and pool. The food was good and the staff were very friendly and...

Four friends stayed here after four weeks travelling and birding in South India. We were just looking for a rest before the long trek back to the UK. The location of The Old Lighthouse is very good. Very convenient for walking about Kochi. And just a short tuk tuk ride away from some of the famous sights. The Chinese fishing...

Quaint, tasteful, well-run and conveniently located on the coast in central Fort Kochi, with stunning sunsets. Our pre-paid taxi ride from the airport during a mid-day weekday took about an hour; taxi cost: $20. This hotel's staff is professional, courteous, available, responsive and friendly. Rooms are sun-filled, spacious and comfortable with the AC. Great pool. Short walk to chinese fishing...

A quaint and comfortable place, well-located on the coast. Stunning views of ocean sunsets daily, along with sporadic passings of local fishing boats. Staff is very courteous, positive and professional. Sreenath is especially warm - providing helpful guidance through the robust south Indian breakfast choices in the tasteful, elegant dining room with water views. Rooms are spacious, sun-filled and comfortable,...

Friendly staff served a good chilled wine for us whilst we watched the sunset. The facilities are excellent. The views are a holiday highlight. The wine is pricey, as it is everywhere in Kerala. We recommend the Old Lighthouse.

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
