Beautiful building. Big and very nice rooms with huge bathroom!
Staff extremly friendly and attentive - the umbrellas we borrowed were all tourists envy during the (pre) monsoon.
One major suggestion for improvement - more information on local points of interest, organized tours, etc
Definetively recommend!

Room Tip: We had a room near the restaurant. It was not an issue given it was low season, but probably noisy d...

Stayed here towards the end of Easter with 2 friends at the end of our holiday in India. We were welcomed by a friendly guy (can't remember his name) who spoke great English and showed us to our room. It turned out we had a room upstairs (largest in the hotel) as there was 3 of us. We were very impressed with the facilities on offer in the hotel. Breakfast was perfectly acceptable considering it was included in the price. Fresh fruit, toast and a choice of omelet and other egg/pancake based breakfast items from the menu made to order. The first day we arrived we asked the hotel what was best to see in Fort Cochin, he promptly arranged a tuc tuc driver that again spoke pretty good english and charged us a reasonable rate per hour to show us all that Cochin had to offer. Overall considering the price of the rooms it was definitely value for money and I'd recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Fort Cochin.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a room upstairs. The rooms downstairs are off the restaurant area and could poss...

Very well renovated, this hotel In a historic tea merchant building is an oasis away from the downtown noise. We stayed here three days and felt fully refreshed. The pool area is great. The on-site restaurant is fabulous. The rooms are very large and aid conditioned ( a must in Kerala). Huge king-sized four-poster bed. The bathroom was very large and modern. Geat wifi. TV worked great with movie channels. The location is convenient, just a 10 to 15 minute walk to all the Vasco de Gama square sights, or a 30 to 50 rupee rickshaw ride.

We'll definitely stay here again.

Dempo Resorts and the historic Tea BungalowThe guiding force behind Tea Bungalow is Mr.Vivek Dempo founder of Dempo Resorts. The Dempo Family is one of the oldest families of Goa, who controlled the coconut trade from the 16th to the 19th Century. They also owned large cargo sailing ships which sailed from Goa to the African Ports of Portuguese colonies like Mozambique and Angola in the Indian Ocean.The restoration and decoration of Tea Bungalow has been a labour of love for Mr. Dempo. He has crafted an escape from the humdrum, noisy, soul-killing rush of everyday life. Tea Bungalow offers a tranquil place to step away for a while, to centre your thoughts and get the balance you need.Tea Bungalow occupies pride of place in the heart of the exclusive heritage area of Fort Cochin. Cochin (Kochi) is made up of three districts: Ernakulam, Wellington Island and Fort Cochin. The bungalow was built in 1912 and run as a workshop and office of a UK Company called United Carpets engaged in the manufacture and export of coir and spices. Brooke Bond the tea company bought the bungalow in 1956 and christened it Brooke Bond Bungalow which housed the top management of Brooke Bond & Company. Dignitaries used this bungalow for important meetings. Its history of spice and tea brought about its new avatar - Tea Bungalow. ... more   less
