Thora, the owner and architect who restored this lovely old Keralan house is a nest builder par excellence. The Secret Garden is a jewel in the crown of Fort Cochin and will be bring joy to anyone lucky enough to check in. It is such a peaceful environment supplemented by great staff who quietly go about ensuring your stay is as comfortable as possible. A delicious breakfast guaranteed to start the day too plus you can ask the chef to cook you dinner if you wish to eat in. Better than a 5* hotel in my book - I can't wait to come back!
