Fort Castle Hotel

Koder House, located in Cochin, is a testament to the rich Jewish heritage and culture that once thrived in Cochin. The Koder House was the residence of one of the most illustrious Jewish family in Cochin - the Koders, which has now been restored to its full glory and turned into a three-storeyed heritage boutique hotel.The hotel overlooks the beautiful landscape of Fort Cochin and is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Fort Cochin beach.

This House had been a host to Presidents, Prime Ministers, Viceroys, Ambassadors and other prominent dignitaries. This dwelling also finds a prominent place on INTACH's list of heritage sites, and a visit to Fort Cochin is considered to be incomplete without a visit to this historic monument.
