Testimonials: Le Colonial - Cochin

“What a wonderful place to end a very impressive journey! We truly enjoyed the attentive service and the wonderfully furnished rooms. Liked the nice paintings and lithographs, each of them telling stories of life in Cochin as it used to be in the old days! We would very much like to come back to this welcoming hotel and then stay longer.”

“Without you, our travel in India would not have been complete. It took this revelation, that contagious passion for the authentic, luxury and atavistic to understand a little. All my gratitude to the visionaries who started this fabulous renovation, initiative and grandiose. We will come back, write to you and definitely keep in touch with this great company.  Respectfully.’’

“An unforgettable stay beyond time, in a wonderful house. We had a warm and friendly welcome, and the very attentive service of the Le Colonial team charmed us.
This house contains within it a huge part of the history of this charming region.
It covers the trace of Portuguese adventurers, Dutch traders, the English governors and the ambience of the culture of South India. 
The memory of these days with peaceful and rich encounters will stay for a long time in our mind.’’
