Relive the glorious past at the Poovath Hotel, a renovated Dutch Palace from the colonial era. It stands by bewitching Arabian Sea in Fort Kochi on the south west coast of India. Pure comfort and the option to get about at your own pace and leisure to enjoy a nice holiday by the Arabian Sea is the attraction while the tasteful décor and sumptuous fare is just an addition to the hospitality. Fort Kochi also known as ‘Queen of the Arabian Sea’ is a laid back coastal town with a colonial past.
 
Vestiges of Portugese, Dutch, and British (in that order) colonialism lie scattered apart from the religious influences like synagogues, churches and so on. But long before them, the Arabs and the Chinese and even the Greeks traded with Kochi. So, it is aptly said to be the cultural crossroads. For those with a penchant for history, Poovath and the surroundings will have much to say.
 
Juxtaposed to the Dutch cemetery, the hotel is a perfect place to start an inquest into past. And while at it, you can explore the natural and cultural beauty of Kerala. The second of the colonizers in Kochi, the Dutch aimed to conquer Kochi after their occupation of Ceylon in 1658. After some unsuccessful campaigns, the Dutch wrested Kochi from the Portugese in 1663.The Dutch flourished till the advent of the British. The Dutch treaties with the local King, the Raja of Kochi, made the royalty a figurative head with no say on how the Fort was ruled. The factory within the fort was then used for trade and commerce of the Dutch East India Company, the main power in Dutch trade.
 
The vestiges of Dutch colonialism include the Mattanchery Dutch Palace, the Bolghatty Palace, the Dutch cemetery, the tomb of Vasco Da Gama, many Dutch mansions and churches. Poovath Hotel, itself a Dutch Palace, is located just next to the Dutch cemetery. The cemetery is maintained by the CSI (Church of South India). Many illustrious people of yore lie buried here.
 
The stately Poovath ensures the placid charm in eight deluxe rooms and two master suites. Spacious and well appointed, the rooms retain the colonial ambience.
 
Enjoy a dip in the pool while the breeze from the Arabian Sea caresses you. Or if you don’t want to soak in open, there is a nice tub for you in every room.
