I absolutely loved this boutique hotel in the most charming (and, in my view, interesting) buildings in the wonderful historic port city of Cochin. There was really something special about staying here, in walking distance to everything, lovely breakfast - try the eggs with dosa -, across the road from the amazing chinese fishing nets and right next door to...

Visited this really good heritage hotel in April, a particularly hot and humid period of the year. The property is very pretty and well maintained, specially the pool area. The best part about this is the location - right besides the beach. There are some amazing coffee shops and small restaurants nearby - all at walking distance. This is very...

We did not stay at this hotel but went to the hotel pool for R500 for 4 hours. Definitely worth the money, and we also had dinner after which was great! The pool is clean and loungers very comfy - we also went to the Kochin Club and preferred this pool to that one! Everyone was very hospitable and friendly.

It's facing Fort Kochi beach. A colonial mansion crowning the rich heritage of Portuguese, Dutch and British era. Once a light house building it's now a heritage hotel run by Neemrana. Rooms are palacios with antique furniture. Calm and cool ambience. In-house dining where we had New Year Eve dinner. A nice hide out for relaxation of mind and body....

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and at home. The hotel is small, spotlessly clean with interesting quirky decor in the shared areas. Our room was comfortable and cool - it was humid and 43 degrees while we were there so a lovely haven.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tower House sits facing the Chinese fishing nets, marking the spot of a 17th century light house which has given it the name. Cannon balls once fired out from its thick bastion-walls. This scallop-walled twin-house looks rather like a ship and indeed, boats were brought in on high tide and parked downstairs in its stable and dry dock! Since 1982, it is owned by Peirce Leslie. The character of The Tower House lies in its unpretentious yet proud bearing, almost grandfather like, it sits looking out over the sea, a spirit of adventure surrounds it even today, taking one back to stories of high seas told and retold over centuries. Stately colonial pillars hold up its vast, high-ceilinged halls. The generous arched doors welcoming one to step in to another world where time stretches, pauses to watch the sun set, and then moves ever so lightly towards dawn. Yes it’s the magic of spaces that have seen more history than we will ever see, spaces that we know will still be there to delight those who come long after us. The furniture is an eclectic mix with no attempt to recreate rooms of any one era or type because the residential structure was added on to. It’s the light pouring in through the windows, skylights and the vastness of the indoor spaces that make for an unforgettable experience. Most of the rooms have large four poster beds, and bathrooms that happily accommodate large tubs. The windows have views of the trees or the sea depending on where they are located. Restored to be compatible with present-day needs while maintaining its structural integrity, it reflects different periods rather than artificially being faithful to any single one. It takes you back in time, as moods and memories woven together create a fabric that is strong but sits ever so lightly. The above uncompromising principles of practical use of material and form dictated The Tower House renovation too and its adherence to these very values of being honest to the time we live in while respecting the past that has set new standards in heritage tourism. Discover the old world charm where, sailors, travellers, traders, planters feasted and danced under chandeliers, suspended from high wooden ceilings. ... more   less
