I stayed at Eight Bastion just for a night. A simple yet elegant boutique hotel located in the heritage zone of Fort Cochin in what is predominantly the prime residential area of the Dutch East India Company. It is just a hop skip and jump away from few main attractions like the beach, David Hall and the Dutch Cemetery. The Manager Mr. Johnny Peter gave us a tour of the small property and explained why the name came into being. The room was very comfortable and had a very spacious bathroom with a bathtub. The pool was a blessing as it was really hot in the last week of February. We had all our meals at Eighth Bastion restaurant called the East Indies which is known for its fusion food. The Food was above and beyond expectation. Chef Mr.Shinto is a star! Presentation was point on aswell! My favorite dishes were: Green apple salad, Seafood stew soup, Banana leaf wrapped prawns (tiger prawn pollichathu), Spicy Squid, kochi shrimp roast, herb roast chicken. I could easily go back to Fort Kochi just for the food at Eighth Bastion. It was that good, trust me! We café hopped in kochi over 4 days covering a dozen cafes and Eighth Bastion tops the list. Karnataka government out of the blue announced that covid test negative report is mandatory to travel back into the state from Maharashtra or Kerala. The staff (Akhil) at Eighth Bastion quickly arranged for us to visit Ernakulam for the test and ensured our report was delivered early morning prior our flight. Things like these matter, that little step of going above and beyond leaves a lasting impression. Every staff member I encountered, from the check- in to restaurant to the cleaning staff were delightful and eager to help! They went over and beyond to help make our stay enjoyable. I highly recommend Eighth Bastion if you are looking for a simple stay and excellent food.

Kerala was closing down when we arrived and have to say the hotel staff confused as to what was happening. However, it is a great hotel with super facilities and great food. The black tiles around the pool burnt your feet if you walked barefoot but the pool was refreshing. Really loving the CGH brand.

This hotel is very smart and well designed with lovely rooms. We had stayed at a CGH Earth hotel in Thedakky (Spice Village- you have to go there!!) and both that and this hotel were super lovely and have great eco credentials- seems to be a brilliant chain of hotels. Staff are super helpful and friendly. The restaurant is good (we tried the Curry Pasta which was surprisingly delicious!) and it also has a nice pool. It’s perfectly situated in Fort Kochin on a quiet street but a very short walk to the main tourist destinations, so very easy to wander about. Would also recommend checking out the Pizzas in the nearby David Hall. Would stay here again.

The staff at the hotel were very accommodating having given us a room for three nights at the last minute. The room was large with an outside balcony overlooking the pool with a nice peaceful feel. We were told the dinner in the restaurant was particularly good and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The location is good being close to the beach and near to restaurants and shops.

Stayed for 1 night with 2 friends. When we arrived there was someone to take our bags and we were checked in straight away and given a bottle of water. The room was really clean and comfortable. The bathroom was really spacious and had a ceiling shower and mosaic deep set bath tub. The courtyard area in the middle of the hotel was really clean with a pool. We asked for a couple of things like extra water and the staff were very accommodating. This place also serves alcohol!
