Centennial British Bungalow, Fort Kochi

Colonial building converted to boutique hotel with restaurant, lounge and pool facilities. Kerala, Indian and European cuisine.

INTRODUCTION

A perfume of history mixed with spice and tea lingers in Fort Kochi. This area developed in the colonial past during which the cultural milieu was moulded by various communities from other parts of India and abroad like Jews, Parsis, Kutchi Muslims, Gujaratis, Tamils, Konkanis who settled here for trade. Tea Bungalow is a hundred year old colonial bungalow made even more striking by a few bright style elements.  This boutique hotel in Kochi was built in 1912 by United Carpets of UK and then bought over by Brooke Bond in 1956 to house the offices of the senior management. In the late Eighties, it fell into disrepair after years of lying vacant. The painstaking restoration hits home when you see pre-renovation pictures, which hang in the reception of this boutique hotel in Kochi.

ROOMS & SERVICE

Tea Bungalow is an intimate boutique hotel in Kochi, only a short walk from the historic quarter of Fort Kochi. All the rooms are named after British controlled ports in the heydays of the Empire. There are six spacious rooms in the original heritage structure. The three rooms on the first floor are the best with spacious rooms, more privacy and a view over the pool from the verandah outside the rooms. The three rooms downstairs are also spacious but open directly onto the restaurant. The restaurant tends to be quiet as it is open only to in-house guests. The lower rooms have larger bathrooms with a bathgarden feel as they have plants and pebbles. There is a newer annexe in the garden with four smaller rooms. The lower rooms in the annexe have bathgardens too.  Both the upper rooms have a tiny balcony instead. The Travancore Lounge with a library and TV is open to all guests. The pool is small and well maintained in a courtyard at the back, adequate for a boutique hotel.

Café du Mahe, the restaurant offers popular dishes from Kerala, Indian and European cuisines. It doubles up as the breakfast room too with a good Continental spread. The staff is largely young and full of smiles and enthusiasm. Lloyd, the friendly General Manager says they think of customers as family and it is evident from the standard of service at this hotel in Kochi.

    Stayed at Tea Bungalow as part of our Kerala tour with seek&hide. We were out the whole day so Tea Bungalow is a nice place to come and unwind after a hectic day of sightseeing and shopping for antiques. We stayed in a room at the end of the passage upstairs which had a private suite kind of feeling. We liked the intimate atmosphere of the hotel and the restaurant was never overcrowded. Varied menu and most dishes were good. Pretty good breakfast spread too. Have to mention that the staff though all quite young were very patient when I got confused with some details and helped me sort it out.
