Eighth Bastion

Cochin | First Class

Reflecting Fort Kochi’s history in the Indian spice trade, the Eighth Bastion combines high quality service and classic style.

With an admirable commitment to reducing their ecological impact, the resort has replaced all plastic water bottles with glass, and toiletries are in earthenware containers. The interiors have a vintage elegance, with rich dark woods, cream walls and highlights of saffron and steel blue.

The guestrooms are spacious and warm. Those with private balconies look out over the fort towards the sea, while those on the ground floor have wide patio doors leading to the garden verandah. Sunken bathtubs and wet-room showers give the en-suites an up-to-date luxury feel.

Fragrant Keralan specialities and dishes from across the Indian Ocean are cooked to the highest contemporary standards, carrying on the hotel’s fusion of tradition and innovation. Though no alcohol is served on the premises, you can enjoy cool mocktails and refreshing teas in the courtyard garden.

Hire a bike and explore the art galleries, cafes and markets surrounding the fort, or take a tuk-tuk ride around the town, before returning to put your feet up by the pool or dangle them over the edge of the promenade into the sea breeze.

We Say
Modern elegance meets rich history with premium quality and pared back style.
