We have just returned from a two night stay at the Tea Bungalow. Staff were very attentive and helpful. We found the food quite good if not a little limited and what arrived was not always what we ordered due to language difficulties but nevertheless the whole experience was a most enjoyable one.

My room was clean, a good size and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was also a good size with an enormous shower area. The staff were helpful and willing. Good wi-fi access throughout. Great location for access to local amenities.

This was our base for a 1 night stay before moving to a house boat. Very friendly and welcoming staff with simple but delicious food are what made this hotel. The hotel is dry, which we didn't know about beforehand, but that was fine. Our room (Mauritius) was ok; it looked out onto the road outside the hotel and had...

Really quaint place, lovely trees all over the property. Small but very clean swimming pool with deck chairs, and with just 12 rooms, you can expect it to be nearly always empty. Great food at breakfast, not buffet but the chef is great, fruit and juice fresh. Room we stayed in was beautifully furnished but felt small for the price....

In a peaceful old colonial house, we had a very good experience. Nice staff, big room and perfect bathroom. The accommodation is perfectly located with good restaurants in the area. The breakfast could be a bit more sophisticated but the service is fine and everyone is ready to help you. A place to recommend!

The location of the hotel is great. It is tucked back from the road, away from the hustle and bustle. The building and rooms are gorgeous - beautifully restored. The pool was a welcome escape from the heat. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that it took a very long time to get hot water...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dempo Resorts and the historic Tea BungalowThe guiding force behind Tea Bungalow is Mr.Vivek Dempo founder of Dempo Resorts. The Dempo Family is one of the oldest families of Goa, who controlled the coconut trade from the 16th to the 19th Century. They also owned large cargo sailing ships which sailed from Goa to the African Ports of Portuguese colonies like Mozambique and Angola in the Indian Ocean.The restoration and decoration of Tea Bungalow has been a labour of love for Mr. Dempo. He has crafted an escape from the humdrum, noisy, soul-killing rush of everyday life. Tea Bungalow offers a tranquil place to step away for a while, to centre your thoughts and get the balance you need.Tea Bungalow occupies pride of place in the heart of the exclusive heritage area of Fort Cochin. Cochin (Kochi) is made up of three districts: Ernakulam, Wellington Island and Fort Cochin. The bungalow was built in 1912 and run as a workshop and office of a UK Company called United Carpets engaged in the manufacture and export of coir and spices. Brooke Bond the tea company bought the bungalow in 1956 and christened it Brooke Bond Bungalow which housed the top management of Brooke Bond & Company. Dignitaries used this bungalow for important meetings. Its history of spice and tea brought about its new avatar - Tea Bungalow. ... more   less
