Ayana Fort, Kochi

 

Take a walk down history at this charming old meets new boutique in Kochi

The cultural promenade of Kochi is known for its romance with history, and Ayana Fort Kochi is no different. Housed in a 200-year-old building, what once was a Portuguese courthouse; it is now a chic, boutique hotel with Art Deco bearings.

Black and white chequered flooring, furniture in muted colours and traditional architectural elements make it a perfect blend of the old and the new. Located a stone throw away from Aspinwall, the main exhibition hall for Kochi-Muziris Biennale, Ayana Fort Kochi sure dons its arty shrug with ease. The glamorous suites transport you into another era, offering panoramic views of Fort Kochi’s red rooftops framed by lush greenery. The rooms feature authentic Indian tile floors, combined with classic Art Deco interiors.
