I travel a lot for work and for fun...so I get to visit a lot of properties. Le Colonial is simply fantastic. Some properties are great...some offer wonderful experiences...Le Colonial affords both. I've never felt quite 'at home' as we did here. We asked for a cooking lesson and spent two hours learning with their kitchen crew. If you're coming to Ft. Cochin, stay here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Le Colonial, by the Chinese fishing nets of Fort Cochin, is probably Asia's oldest colonial house, dating back to 1506. Located in the very heart of Fort Cochin, right next to Saint Francis Church, this legendary house is said to have housed the Saint as also Vasco de Gama. After 150 years as the Portuguese Governor's residence, it was one of the very few houses not to have been destroyed when the Dutch took Fort Cochin. It then housed the Dutch Governors for a century and a half, until Jan van Spall sold it to the British in 1795. In turn, they passed it on to the J. Thomas, the renowned tea trader. These five captive centuries of history have been lovingly restored and the hotel is a true living museum. Treasures of art from the colonial past have revived that era, turning Le Colonial into a "Club" and meeting point for the discerning travelers. ... more less
