After 3+ weeks in Delhi, Rajahstan, Uttar Pradesh and Uttar Arkandh, it was a pleasure to come to the warmth, friendliness and cultural diversity of Kerala State. Fort Kochi is a fascinating, friendly, and relaxed town and The Arches is an oasis within an oasis of a town. Centrally located on a quiet street, with air conditioned, impeccably furnished, clean rooms, the dark woods of the hallways and stairways, along with the charming roof top restaurant, make this small hotel a true gem. The staff are wonderful, extremely helpful and rightfully proud of this hotel.
There are a number of boutique hotels in Fort Kochi, but the Arches surpasses on all fronts and at very reasonable prices. Some of the larger, better known hotels cost up to 5 times as much, without the ambience and friendly staff.
Rajnish arranged an excellent half day tour of the waterways South of Kochi with a boat owner, poler, who took us to his home on one of the sandy islands for a delicious Kerala meal prepared by his wife.
A memorable five day stay at a wonderful hotel.
