Forte Kochi

Come, step into the yesteryear, into a world gracefully tucked in the glories of the past, brimming with regal heritage and plush luxury, and as far away from the present as possible!

Forte Kochi sits on the popular Princess Street of Fort Kochi, one of the oldest cosmopolitan port cities in the world.

A town so strategically placed that many a battle had been fought and many a ship burnt to lay claim of its generous shores.

Fort Kochi has welcomed weary travellers for centuries from Arab and Chinese traders and Jews seeking shelter and new lives. The town has witnessed many a conquest and has been colonised by the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British in succession.


Each of the 27 heritage abodes at Forte Kochi bespeaks of the glorious riches that bedecked colonial India. The architecture along with several other distinctive heritage features of Forte Kochi are attributed to a seamless blend of Portuguese, Dutch and British influences, and the interiors of each of the 27 luxuriously styled heritage rooms has been painstakingly restored to present every style favored during those periods while ensuring every modern comfort and luxury is proffered.

Colourful tiled floors play along with the occasional wooden floor, while solid wood doors act as shutters across each large, arched, tinted window. The furniture, including poster beds, cushioned and wickered lush sofas all contribute to the colonial style of the hotel.
