Waterfront property with an old school feel and modern amenities. Other than the fact that a bidet would've been nice, and there were a couple of snafus with their restaurant and chef's availability, it was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. The famous restaurant was under renovation so it was a bit disappointing. We had also booked a cooking class with their exec chef and there were some glitches in how that was planned and so we had to cancel. Having said that, their staff are just brilliant. They took care of our every need and ensured that we got a taste of true Kerala culture in every possible way. They have a few assigned auto walahs who, for a fair price, take the tourists on trips around fort kochi. We had two of the best auto walahs - Sanish and Nasir. Both were so nice, easy going, helpful and candid. There was no tourist hounding behavior or anything. Very relaxed yet entertaining.
The views from the sea facing rooms are just spectacular. Couldn't have asked for more.
