On a peaceful corner of Dutch Cochin, we found a historic plot of land that has seen much building and rebuilding since the early 1700s.
Perfect for an an elegantly curated fusion of styles, tastes and ideas. At once a celebration of Fort Cochin’s Dutch heritage and its vibrant contemporary cultural pulse. When it was finished, we called the outcome Eighth Bastion.
Hi. I’m Suresh and I will be your host. My two passions are food and travel. I’m a self-confessed foodie and I love Kerala cuisine. After all, who doesn’t love the food from their home town? So, when you dine with us, you can be sure that you will be served only authentic food, prepared with fresh, local produce, and made with love.
My other love is travel. I guess that explains why I’ve worked for one of Kerala’s leading eco-hospitality houses – CGH Earth, for over 35 years. Over these 35 years, I have protected my land while promoting it. I’ve made sure that my conscience is as clear as the environment. And that the rich heritage of my land gets the respect it deserves.
After 35 years of keeping these promises, I can honestly say that you will not find a better guide or friend in your Kerala adventure. I may be uncompromising when it comes to conservation, but I will go out of my way to make sure you feel at home. Let me know what you imagined this holiday to be like, and I will help you live your dream.
See you soon.
