Originally built by the Dutch in the 1860s, this 27-room heritage hotel stands tall and elegant on the popular Princess Street in Fort Kochi.

Once part of the palatial home of an eminent Jew family, Forte Kochi and the interiors of each of the 27 luxuriously styled heritage rooms has been recreated to present the glorious colonial period of Kerala.
