Where to stay in Kochi (Cochin)

Kochi offers abundant hospitality options, including a dense collection of international five-star hotels. Travelers on a budget can explore the selection of modest but impeccable homestays and guesthouses in the quieter neighborhoods just outside the central tourist area of Fort Cochin; these make great places to meet local hosts and fellow travelers. If you can spend a bit more, a number of boutique hotels in converted European-style mansions offer individual charm, and eco-villages and resort or retreat establishments outside the city center come with full wellness, spa, and culinary packages.
