Old Harbour is an immaculately restored 300 year old building, which is now one of Fort Cochin’s most stylish, characterful and well-priced boutique hotels. The owner, Edgar Pinto, spent many years restoring the building with the help of specialist architect Karl Damschen. Their combined sympathetic style has resulted in a building with its original Dutch and Portuguese elements in tact. Expect to find elegant arches, teak floors, and a walled in garden. Within the walls lies a large crisp pool to cool off in, ideal after a tour of the city. This is an area ideal for dining as well and we highly recommend their contemporary, menu that is brimming with seafood. To top it off, Old Harbour enjoys an excellent location just a short stroll from the Chinese Fishing Nets.
The 13 rooms are plush with high ceilings, antique furniture, large beds and modern Indian artwork scattered throughout. They are light and airy, but are not overly luxurious. The rooms are all different in size, due to the quirky nature of the building. Some overlook an internal courtyard, whilst others overlook the pool and gardens.
