Eighth Bastion, Fort Cochin
Opened in 2013, CGH Earth's Eighth Bastion Hotel is located in the heart of historic Fort Cochin, within a short walking distance of the famous Chinese Fishing Nets and a wealth of restaurants and boutiques.
Blending contemporary and colonial styles, the Eighth Bastion has just 19 rooms (pictured below), most of which open onto airy patios or balconies. Bathrooms are luxurious. Room facilities include a combination safe, tea/coffee maker, hair drier and complimentary WiFi. Please note that there are no televisions in the rooms.
The cuisine at Eighth Bastion is a contemporary take on some old favourites, with a strict adherence to local ingredients. Every dish you sample at the East Indies restaurant has been carefully recrafted, to accommodate only what the local markets serve up. It’s a commitment to freshness. But a delicious one.
There is an outdoor courtyard and swimming pool. Bicycles are available for guests who wish to explore Fort Cochin on two wheels.
