Fragrant Nature


Experience exceptional service and old world charm at this new Cochin hotel.

This exquisite boutique hotel, is set within the former offices of the East India Company placing it right at the heart of the city’s rich and varied heritage. It has only been open since 2015, however it has already become one of the most popular hotels in Cochin. Centred around a beautiful and light-filled courtyard with its distinct colonial feel, the hotel really gives you a sense of place. One of the most popular spots is the roof-top pool and café, both of which have incredible views out over the harbour... there are few places we would rather retreat to following a day of city exploration. There’s also a terrace lounge with an open-air theatre where occasional folk performances are held. The service is attentive, with nothing being too much trouble and the works of art throughout the hotel – including the Indian Street Market mural by two English artists – give the hotel something of an exclusive ambience.

All-day dining is available at the main restaurant and dishes include local favourites as well as international cuisine. For a change of scene you can treat yourself to an evening at the Flint House sea food grill restaurant, or enjoy full meals or light lunches during daylight hours at the Pool Café.

The spacious and luxurious rooms are beautifully decorated and located over three floors. The grandly-named Duke’s Chambers feature hints of vibrant décor and beautiful tile details in the bathrooms. You can also enjoy harbour views from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
