About Fort Heritage
In a small street close to the centre of Fort Kochi is Fort Heritage, an old aristocratic Dutch building. The wooden entrance lobby leads to a large room, formerly a formal reception room, which is now the dining area. There are large old fashioned mirrors on the wall elegant chandeliers and wall scones illuminate the place. The dining area opens at the rear into a courtyard garden which is ideal for early morning cup of tea or late afternoon snack.
Upstairs from the dining area is yet another large room which may have been a ball room originally. The combination of the expanse of wooden floors and high ceilings make this a wonderful lounge. Don't miss the traditional wooden swing supported by brass chains from the ceilings!
The rooms are spread along the lower area, or on the upper level reached by a gracious wooden staircase. There are also additional rooms in another wing of the L shaped building. The rooms in the old building have muted light while the ones in the newer part are brighter. All of them are comfortably furnished and have spacious private facilities.

Kochi (or Cochin) is set on a cluster of islands and narrow peninsulas and has one of the best natural harbours in the world.
The famed `Malabar Spices' were exported from this very port, bringing to Kochi visitors as varied as the Arabs, the Dutch, the Portuguese and, finally, the British. All of them have left their mark on the architecture, making Kochi one of the most unique and fascinating towns in India.
