Amazing food and better service! Clean and hygienic, with beautiful interiors and lounge. The pizza they serve are delicious! The thoughtfulness to pack the pizza slices to go so that they don’t sweat and make the other slices soggy! Images follow-

Our experience at Kochi was enhanced with a flawless stay at Forte Kochi Hotel. It started off with a warm welcome by the team headed by Mr. Jerin. After a long drive from the airport we were welcomed with some refreshing welcome drinks. Mr. Jerin explained all the inclusions very well to us. The hotel is beautiful with a boutique theme, a swimming pool with dining options at the same venue, artistic furniture everywhere and comfortable seating areas and lounges. The room was fantastic with all world class amenities, the levels of hygiene and sanitation were amazing too. Would like to also give a special mention to Mr. Gokul and Mr. Tapan from the team who were extremely courteous too. Each and every team member went out of their way to ensure that we had a comfortable stay. They even gave us a fond farewell. Would definitely recommend this place to friends and family, not to forget the fantastic location with a lot of tourist attractions at walkable distance. Kudos to the team !! Keep it up
