Oh Le Colonial! Our home from home in lovely Fort Kochi. If you are looking for 5 star glossy hotel luxury then you will be disappointed but if you like to leave your door open and wonder round in your bare feet, or curl up on a sofa in the gorgeous living room, then this is the place...understated colonial style, large beds and bathrooms...but none of that would matter without Smitha and her team. Smitha is a natural host, and we really enjoyed our time spent with her. Her team are absolutely professional while still being friendy and casual, and I haven't even mentioned the food. Each meal (especially breakfast) was a whole host of tasty surprises. But don't tell anyone as this place needs to stay secret so we can always get a reservation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Le Colonial, by the Chinese fishing nets of Fort Cochin, is probably Asia's oldest colonial house, dating back to 1506. Located in the very heart of Fort Cochin, right next to Saint Francis Church, this legendary house is said to have housed the Saint as also Vasco de Gama. After 150 years as the Portuguese Governor's residence, it was one of the very few houses not to have been destroyed when the Dutch took Fort Cochin. It then housed the Dutch Governors for a century and a half, until Jan van Spall sold it to the British in 1795. In turn, they passed it on to the J. Thomas, the renowned tea trader. These five captive centuries of history have been lovingly restored and the hotel is a true living museum. Treasures of art from the colonial past have revived that era, turning Le Colonial into a "Club" and meeting point for the discerning travelers. ... more less
