Forte Kochi sits on the popular Princess Street in Fort
Kochi - one of the world's oldest cosmopolitan port cities,
and a melting pot of cultures from across the world, and
offers a glimpse into the colonial heritage of Kerala.
Believed to be built by the Dutch, in the 1860s, the
structure of Forte Kochi was once a part of the palatial
home of an eminent Jewish family of Kochi. The architecture
and the heritage aesthetics are a seamless blend of
Portuguese, Dutch and British influences.
Now restored to its past glory, the hotel enchants visitors
with glimpses of life once known and lived, centuries ago.
The 27 heritage rooms at Forte Kochi have been painstakingly
restored to present every style favoured during the colonial
age while ensuring every modern comfort and luxury is
proffered. The choice of room categories vary from Classic,
Imperial, and Sovereign. All rooms are equipped with modern
and convenient amenities including a well-stocked minibar,
electronic safe, organic toiletries and more, offering a
fascinating fusion of the past and the contemporary.
The rooms overlook a central courtyard where, beside the
swimming pool, is an ancient Mikwah, a natural spring used
for Jewish rituals and the last known to exist in Kerala
today - augmenting the hotel's old-world charm.
The hotel is within strolling distance of the sea, the beach
and many historical buildings - including the Santa Cruz
Cathedral Basilica, St Francis church, Vasco Da Gama
Squareetc as well as antique shops, Jew street and many more
