The Poovath Heritage - An Amritara Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Lovely old Dutch house positioned at the quieter end of Old Cochin. We had a delightful 1st floor corner room and balcony with views of the old Dutch cemetery, beach, Arabian Sea and stunning sunsets. We so enjoyed the uplifting early mornings of the beach coming to life as part of the local sunrise activities. Then a swim before breakfast on the upper terrace - wonderful!
It's still very new since being taken over and refurbished by the excellent Amritara group but already developing into another jewel in their private hideaways collection. As expected with this group everything is of high standard with wonderfully friendly and helpful staff.
Ayurvedic treatments are available opposite and despite the very new clinical surroundings were very exceptionally relaxing yet invigorating with very considerate practitioners.

Much has been wrriten about the newly done renovations. All true. Management and staff are eager to please and open to ideas for improvements. Room was spacious, bathroom brand new and the view of the Dutch cemetrary and Arabian Sea is hard to beat. Value for money compared to nearby Malabar House. Breakfast is simple and can be expanded if kitchen is staffed better. Can't go wrong. Great location.

Room Tip: Ask for room with view of the ocean and on upper floor.

My wife & I stayed for 3 nights at the recently re-furbished Poovath Heritage in Cochin. It's in a great location close to the beach yet away from the bustle of busy Cochin. The building is an oasis of calm & the rooms are very well appointed. Within the hotel grounds there is a lovely swimming pool - a perfect spot for relaxing.

The outstanding feature here however is the hotel staff, ably led by Abdul Gafoor. Everyone seems eager to please & prepared to go that extra distance to ensure the comfort of every guest. This hotel is a great place to stay in the centre of old town Cochin; we'll be back next year.

Room Tip: All the rooms are spacious & beautifully appointed

We loved the Poovath Heritage Hotel, it has just had major renovations done and the rooms are modern and spacious.
We stayed in the sea facing larger room and as the hotel has only eight room there were only two of them available, they are defiantly worth the little extra.
The location is perfect with walking distance to shops and restaurants
The first night we ate at the hotel and the food was delicious.
We were very well looked after and the staff could not do enough for us.

This place was our saviour from the hustle and bustle of Cochin.

The rooms are spacious and the veranda where you eat breakfast overlooks the beach area.

The pool is beautifully maintained and the staff were extremely accommodating- letting us use the facilities and store our baggage in a spare room without paying for another night when our flight was at 3 in the morning the next day. We really appreciated it!

Near Malabar House and many of the other large hotels, the location is very convenient.

Having just opened the hotel was a little under-occupied but I'm sure this will change very soon!
