Fodor's Review

This tastefully decorated hotel is the former home of the late Sir Robert Bristow, the architect of the modern port of Kochi. It's one of the only Kochi hotels that opens out onto a beach—some rooms look out to the Arabian Sea, while others have a view over the garden and swimming pool area. It also benefits from having an acclaimed seafood restaurant, Bristow's Bistro. Rooms are large and well maintained, with wood floors and large, bright, white-tiled bathrooms. Pool-side villas and ocean-view suites are attractive.
