Le Colonial is probably Asia’s oldest hotel in Fort Cochin – dating back to 1506, and the most history and art-filled of all the heritage hotels in Cochin. Just adjacent to St. Francis Church, it is reputed to have housed Vasco da Gama and the Saint. Art treasures from the colonial past now revive an authentic scent of the bygone era at this hotel in Fort Cochin while the inner patio and garden pool make it distinct from the other luxury hotels in Cochin. This 16th century colonial home is now run as one of the heritage hotels in Cochin by Neemrana. One stay here will get you started on the discovery of the most unique luxury hotels in Cochin, and the Neemrana brand in India.
