Flew in early morning from Doha, Qatar and found the car arrange by Eight Bastion waiting for me at the airport. The drive from Kochi International Airport was long but comfortable. Having spent the whole night at the airport and flight; I was hoping to go to bed right away.
Checking in was quick and I was in my room in a jiffy. Day was just breaking and though tired; I decided to go for a walk and check out the place. This was the start of my holiday romance with Eight Bastion & Kochi.
I will start with the service this hotel has which was flawless. Just a call or a note at the front desk and it was done. I am impressed by the food quality and the variety of food served at the in-house restaurant “East Indies”. Because it was Ramadan and I was fasting; the kitchen staff took extra care to prepare food for my Iftar and Sehri (Suhoor). This restaurant is famous for its sea food specialty.
The rooms are simple and very elegantly decorated. There is nothing loud about this hotel. Being there gives you the feeling of peace and serenity. My room was on the 2nd floor with a balcony facing the pool. This is the probable the cutest pool I have ever seen in my life.
The bathroom was huge; almost as big as my room. It has a tub with beautiful inlay of tiles and a rain shower. The shower area has wooded floors and the water would just pass between the wooded planks. This is a great concept which ensured no water flooding in the shower area.
No words can express what I experienced during my stay at this hotel. I visited this hotel with some friends and promise to be back again very soon in the coming future with my family, Insha Allah.
