The perfect place to recover from the flights. Room was very comfortable, pool welcome, service gracious. You can do yoga classes. We didn't eat anything other than breakfast but that was fine. location is really good as it is walking distance to the town centre

I have stayed here a few times and we always have a very warm welcome and delicious food. The rooms are all different and beautifully furnished. Yoga is available and simple curries freshly cooked are delightful. Almost reluctant to share this hotel incase I can not get a reservation next time.

First time in southern India, and what a great place just to break you into India if it's your first time. Rooms great, pool lovely and warm, service helpful and friendly. You only need 2-3 days here in Fort Kochi, any more and you will be bored. To get here ask the Secret Garden to pick you from the airport,...

We love it here. This was our 6th or 7 th time here so that says it all. An oasis of calm in a busy environment. The rooms are lovely, the pool inviting and the staff so obliging. Expect we'll be back next year!

The Secret Garden is exactly what its name suggests. I stayed here for 4 nights and had the opportunity to stay in different rooms. The place is a hidden gem tucked away from the hustle and bustle but still close enough to walk or take a tuk-tuk to tourist areas. The Secret Garden has the most beautiful features which include...

This was such a wonderful and peaceful place. A real oasis, the staff are lovely and so helpful. You are close to everything but far enough away to feel out of the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas of the town. We especially loved the morning yoga and breakfast. Would go back in a heart beat, amazing place...
