Old Harbour Hotel - A subtle blend of trend and tradition


Visitors: 159

Old harbour hotel, the erstwhile home of the employees of the tea broking firms is the first hotel in Fort Kochi. Originally built over three centuries back, it boats a strong Dutch and Portuguese architectural style in its white washed facade. Tastefully refurbished without blotching the original flair and flavour of the colonial architectural style, it is one of the most favored hotels in Fort Kochi. Located near some of the most famous sights of Fort Kochi including the Chinese nets along the sea coast and the tree lined streets of this heritage city, Old harbour is indeed a choice well made!

The antique furniture and the old fashioned high ceilings of the tastefully done up interiors accentuates its charm. The hunky owner of this hotel Edgar Pinto has ensured strokes of vivacity and flamboyance in its new look even while retaining the original heritage hotel concept. Old harbour hotel has thirteen rooms that are interestingly named after the various streets of Fort Kochi and suites that ensure the best views of the garden and the lily pond.

In case you are fancying something extraordinary, the garden cottages would be the right choice. You would love the casual mood of these cottages with open-to-the-sky showers, a veranda and a private pond. There are many cozy options to unwind in Old harbour. Try out a vitalizing massage at the Ayurvedic spa, head straight to the large open-air terrace to enjoy the views around or enjoy the live cultural shows at the stage set up in the garden. The gourmets would find the special sea food menu truly irresistible. The eco-friendly policies of the hotel ensure that only organic vegetables and fruits are offered to the guests. In case you are planning a laid back holiday without compromising on the comfort factor a wee bit, Old harbour will be a choice worth checking out!

The hotel provides high standards of service and a lot of luxurious facilities to the guests. The food served to the guests is treated with utmost care. Special efforts have been taken to see to it that only healthy and fresh food reaches your table. Home made breads, glasses of fresh fruit juices and organically grown vegetables are some of the things you can expect here.
