An excellent hotel with an unforgettable view of the water. Amazing breakfasts and a very convenient location! From the windows you can see how the local fishermen catch fish on beautiful boats and falcons and other birds shave above them. Birds flying point.
This small boutique resort is set in easy walking distance of all the sights, the rooms are modern clean and comfortable. The restaurant serves a delicous mix of Indian and healthy western dishes and the service is top notch. Many people have mentioned watching the passing boats but I was amazed to see so many passing dolphins hour after hour from the resort pool. Now I'm off to continue my adventure on Xandari Riverscape and the Xandari Pearl.
A beautiful boutique hotel located on Kochi harbor. Pros: Excellent staff, well appointed rooms and lovely premises. Cons: Be sure that fresh towels are always on hand at the swimming pool. Location: Great shopping and plenty of sightseeing venues to visit. The Chinese nets were especially interesting and the merchants are friendly. My wife and I spent two nights at Xandari Harbour Hotel following our houseboat tour and Ayurveda resort stay in Kerala. While all rooms naturally did not have a sea view, the premises provided plenty of places in which to relax and watch the harbor activities. The staff wass extremely attentive, friendly and very eager to please. The breakfast, which was included in the price of the room, was excellent and dining al fresca was refreshing. The infinity pool was also very pleasant. Our room was very well designed and nicely appointed with plenty of space to store clothes and other travel items. The lavatory contained a commode along with a great shower while teeth brushing, etc. was done in a separate, shielded area that was located behind the bed and adjacent to the storage closets.
We loved this place so much that we had to book one extra night here. The experience was just wonderful from start to finish. On arrival we got fresh juice and towels to dry off the hands when we checked in. Room deco, with a blend of decorative tiles, concrete, warm wood details and the view to the very nice garden and water front is understated luxury and tasteful. We also ate several of our meals here. Exquisite taste, delicate presentation and good value for money. Warm and friendly staff. For us Norwegians with a long journey behind us this was the best possible way to start out vacation - highly recommended!!!
