We stayed at the Secret Garden annex in March, and had two meals a day at the hotel, plus access to all the facilities. In short, our stay was fantastic. The hotel is located in Fort Kochi, an older area of town that is made up of narrow streets and alleyways, all perfectly charming. It is tucked away in a...

The secret garden hotel is located in Fort Coochie. The rooms are all in a very charming Kerala style building. The breakfasts are delicious. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The personnel is very kind and helpful. It has a lovely swimming pool, which is really enjoyable after the heat of the town around.

Attractive boutique hotel in Fork Kochi. In quiet residential area, with nice garden and pool. Excellent service from Sunesh - detailed information on where to go for sights and meals, booked the best Kathakali performance, taxis, TukTuks, drinks, meals - all with a smile.

We stayed at the Secret Garden twice during our 4 weeks travel In Kerela in February 2017. We started and ended our trip here. It is such a lovely place --a calm atmosphere, lovely and very helpful staff. The rooms are beautifully decorated and have many small aesthetic details. We loved the healthy breakfast with fruit, granola, yoghurt, sliced egg...

The perfect place to recover from the flights. Room was very comfortable, pool welcome, service gracious. You can do yoga classes. We didn't eat anything other than breakfast but that was fine. location is really good as it is walking distance to the town centre
