The Tower House sits facing the Chinese fishing nets, marking the spot of a 17th century light house which has given it the name. Cannon balls once fired out from its thick bastion-walls. This scallop-walled twin-house looks rather like a ship and indeed, boats were brought in on high tide and parked downstairs in its stable and dry dock! Since 1982, it is owned by Peirce Leslie. The character of The Tower House lies in its unpretentious yet proud bearing, almost grandfather like, it sits looking out over the sea, a spirit of adventure surrounds it even today, taking one back to stories of high seas told and retold over centuries. Stately colonial pillars hold up its vast, high-ceilinged halls. The generous arched doors welcoming one to step in to another world where time stretches, pauses to watch the sun set, and then moves ever so lightly towards dawn. Yes it’s the magic of spaces that have seen more history than we will ever see, spaces that we know will still be there to delight those who come long after us. The furniture is an eclectic mix with no attempt to recreate rooms of any one era or type because the residential structure was added on to. It’s the light pouring in through the windows, skylights and the vastness of the indoor spaces that make for an unforgettable experience. Most of the rooms have large four poster beds, and bathrooms that happily accommodate large tubs. The windows have views of the trees or the sea depending on where they are located. Restored to be compatible with present-day needs while maintaining its structural integrity, it reflects different periods rather than artificially being faithful to any single one. It takes you back in time, as moods and memories woven together create a fabric that is strong but sits ever so lightly. The above uncompromising principles of practical use of material and form dictated The Tower House renovation too and its adherence to these very values of being honest to the time we live in while respecting the past that has set new standards in heritage tourism. Discover the old world charm where, sailors, travellers, traders, planters feasted and danced under chandeliers, suspended from high wooden ceilings.

It's a fantastic Heritage Hotel with artful decor and super fascinating history! Their rooms are really nice, spaced, comfortable with clean beds, good looking classic furniture. It is quiet and private, while being in the center of the Kochi touristy zone, this to me is very likable. The tree, flower & nature surround makes the Hotel an easy stay, beautiful and relaxing place to stay at. The Breakfast is refreshing with fruits and juices, & of course some Indian dosa, idly, upma! The staff are friendly courteous and great to talk with.

I have seen many of these beautiful old hotels all around Asia destroyed by modernisation but Neemrana does it right: all the charm of an old hotel has been maintained, with original features such as high ceilings with whirring fans, beautiful wood flooring, and stylish antique furnishings. The hospitality is great: wonderful personal service and a laid back atmosphere makes for a relaxed stay ( we stayed for one month, that is how nice it was!!!) A great pool, lovely location, delicious breakfast. We will definitely visit again.

I visited Tower House at the tail-end of a wonderful but tiring solo trip around Kerala, and was so happy that my stay there was comfortable and relaxing. The rooms are fabulous, each room has a very different style of decor and layout. The pool and property are well maintained, and the staff (especially Mr. Ranjit and Mr. Vetri) will do whatever possible to ensure your stay is comfortable. The breakfast is alright, I'd suggest asking for your masala dosa to be made small and crispy! Though, the absolute highlight of my stay was most definitely the cats on the property, who are so affectionate and loving, and are a perfect indication of how well the property will also treat its guests! Speaking of guests, I've found that Tower House has a strange tendency to attract like-minded people, and I've made some great friends while staying here. I've visited Tower House twice now, and I'm definitely looking forward to another visit in the near future!

I booked my trip to Kochi after seeing this property on Cred and the place did not disappoint. In fact, we had booked a cheaper room and they had upgraded to a luxury suite. The room was gorgeous. The place is so well maintained. The staff are kind and helpful and they have very healthy breakfast options as well. The property used to be a 17th century watch tower so you have this gorgeous view of the sea as well. Finally, I’d like to thank Mr Ranjit Kumar and Mr Vettri for a wonderful stay. Can’t wait to go back here and visit all other Neemrana properties as well!!

If, like me, you are into old-world charm and colonial architecture, this place is for you. Spacious room and washrooms, corridors and lobbies reminding you of a different era, and a pool- there’s everything that you’ll need to spend a restful few days. The local markets and cafes are all at a walking distance. The staff is extremely sweet and helpful. Ranjit, the manager, and Vetri, from the staff, handle the property and attend to the guests really well. Definitely a place worth spending a few days at.
