Fort Cochin is a hot tourist destination in Kochi where the main attractions include the lively beach and an assortment of architectural structures that talk volumes about the history of the place. The ubiquitous Chinese fishing nets abutting the sea offer a spectacular view along with the sunset in the Arabian Sea. Other attractions include Portuguese Palace, Dutch homes, etc.
Picturesque locale The approach to Kimansion is nothing short of picturesque. Set in a somnolent quarter of Fort Kochi. It is short walk from the beach, the chinese fishing nets and other tourist attractions. As you walk down the clean-scrubbed, winding country road, theres very little to remind you that you are, in fact, in a completely modern day and age OLD WORLD CHARM. It is this very same feeling that pervades Kimansion. More than a century old, this two storied, 2500 sq.ft. house has character. In every nook of its spacious rooms and in every beam of polished wood. The grandeur and sateliness of a bygone era are evident. So is the air of comfort and cosiness which comes in a home where families have lived and loved. So much so, that \\\'it is a home\\\' becomes a truth. MODERN DAY AMENITIES While Kimansion is warm, cosy and definitely not impersonal. It is very much a state of the art hotel. Blending unobtrusively with its old-world looks are several very modern amenities.
