“Great place for a relaxed family holiday”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

ideal place if you want to spend 3-4 days in a quaint part of Kochi with the sea and great food for company.The best thing about the hotel is its location which is in the fort kochi area , the "heritage" part of the city. It is close to the sea (3 mins walk) and also has some great cafes,restuarants within a 15 min walk.
the hotel staff were thoughtful enough to offer us a ground floor room as we were travelling with a 4 year old and the inhouse chef made our meals memorable.
If you are in the mood to read,relax and soak in the "heritage atmosphere" then this would be the place to stay with the pool being the "jewel in the crown"!!

If you want to experience native India with the flavour of Portugese, Dutch and British colonial era, in a 5 star ambience then Eighth Bastion is the place to stay. Situated opposite the ocean front, one can enjoy the cool sea breeze and get to see the Chinese fishing nets too. We had a remarkable experience and would highly recommend this boutique hotel.
