Old Harbour Hotel

At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel'. A 300 year-old building that has for long been a heritage monument of this town, now reopened as a boutique hotel. Built in the Dutch style of architecture with hints of Portuguese influences, it was the first hotel of old Cochin. Later it remained a residential home to employees of English tea-broking firms until it was left unused for a period of time.


At a glance

A Dutch colonial building houses Old Harbour Hotel, located just minutes from the famous Chinese fishing nets in Fort Cochin, considered to be one of the most beautiful places in Kerala. Packed with character and charm, enjoy fine cuisine and landscaped gardens with a large pool in this intimate hotel with just 13 generous rooms and suites.

Fort Cochin, Cochin, Kerala, Southern India. 45 kms from Cochin International Airport.

Things to enjoy

Restaurant, spa, manicured walled garden, pool, terrace, works of art.
In detail

The architect has created a clever sense of space throughout Old Harbour Hotel which is packed with wonderful works of art. The lobby is open-plan and immediately you enter you feel as though you are staying in a smart private home. The garden cottages have outdoor showers, a veranda and a private pond.

Spend some time in the carefully tended gardens by the pool with a cool fruit concoction. Then, explore Fort Cochin with its Portuguese and British architecture and the famous cantilevered Chinese fishing nets. Back at Old Harbour Hotel, dine in the restaurant or opt for a seafood barbeque in the garden.
