This is a hidden treasure. We arrived hot and a bit cross frankly but as soon as we walked in it all changed. The place is cool, exceptionally clean, staff are fabulous and food was very good. Right next door was a really helpful pharmacy which seems to stock everything you could need, and there is street food just a few streets away. I loved it in this little town and would definitely come back for longer. It’s an interesting place architecturally but also because 4 major religions all coexist within streets of each other and all offer something amazing to the cultural experience of the area. Special mention to the housekeeping staff who do a really good job and the lady manager who was so helpful and kind to us.

I visiited the Byke Spice Heritage in the end of my trip in the beginning of February 2020. I was a woman traveling alone by that time - would like to mention that I felt very comfortable and safe at this place. If I ever visit Kochi again, I will definitely go back to the Byke Spice. The service is absolutely impeccable, I have never experienced hospitality like this before - I really want to point that out. Bravo! The room was exceptionally spacious and had beautiful interior. It was perfectly clean, too. Last but not least, the food is delicious. And all this for a very affordable price. Thank you very much to all the staff, you all are doing an amazing job.

The room was good. Location was within the city and nice neighbourhood. It was calm inside the resort. The most beautiful thing is the way the staff treated us was fantastic! They were very informative and knowledgeable. Helped us in all possible manner. Met the Boss as well who was down to earth nature. Overall q very nice experience. Also, the people in Kerala are very helping people. We get lot of Vegetarian restaurants within few meters and the restaurant itself is good for food. Thank you team Resort. We will visit your place soon.
