Welcome to this Beautiful Heritage Hotel in Kochi

Come, step into 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 shines like a pearl among the hotels in 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 to its generous shores.

Fort Kochi has welcomed weary travelers for centuries from Arab and Chinese traders to 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.

Its tree hemmed streets, sun-kissed shores and tall ancient edifices still bear remnants of past eras. And in one such imposing yet unassuming structure is Forte Kochi. Originally built by the Portuguese, the mansion presents a medley of Portuguese, Dutch and British influences and was converted to a magnificent home in the late 1800s. This ancient structure was once part of the palatial home of an eminent Jew family. Now restored to its past glory, this boutique hotel enchants its visitors with glimpses of life once known and lived, centuries ago.

Step into one of the best Heritage Hotels in India and step into an age so far away.

Location

A Boutique Hotel in the midst of Cochin's Cultural District

Forte Kochi is located on the beautiful Princess Street - The Crowning Jewel of Fort Kochi.

Just a leisurely 30-minute drive from Ernakulam (Cochin) Junction (the nearest train station) and an hour's drive from Cochin International Airport, Hotel Forte Kochi is a short distance from all of Fort Kochi's innumerable attractions.

Start your day with a walk to Vasco De Gama square and stroll along the picturesque Beach Walkway on Mahatma Gandhi Beach or marvel at the nearby Chinese fishing nets - a centuries-old remnant of the trade route, and now an indelible part of Kochi's heritage.

A memorable ferry ride lets you immerse yourself in the history of India at the culturally significant Our Lady of Hope Church and a short drive will take you to the famous Mattanchery Palace.

The tree-lined boulevards around Forte Kochi offer myriads of cuisines, that is, if you're inclined to step out from our in-house multi-cuisine restaurant - The Jetty! True to the city's multi-cultural roots, Jetty offers a choice of British, pan-European, and Indian dishes. Don't miss out on the local Kerala cuisine and seafood dishes on offer!
