Secret Garden is a beautiful heritage property that is nicely laid out and decorated. The staff are very friendly and helpful - they gave us good restaurant recommendations, booked tickets for a performance and were overall very attentive. There was a problem with the triple room we had booked and they upgraded our room to the huge family room instead...

Where to begin? Staying here was such a lovely experience. First of all we were fortunate to be upgraded to the family suite, which was a much appreciated bonus, but I am sure we would have been very happy with one of the other rooms (no others were available when we booked). As it was, we had a vast suite,...

It had a huge veranda facing the pool which had josh sticks and candles lit for us after our night out. I...

We stayed at the Secret Garden annex in March, and had two meals a day at the hotel, plus access to all the facilities. In short, our stay was fantastic. The hotel is located in Fort Kochi, an older area of town that is made up of narrow streets and alleyways, all perfectly charming. It is tucked away in a...

The secret garden hotel is located in Fort Coochie. The rooms are all in a very charming Kerala style building. The breakfasts are delicious. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The personnel is very kind and helpful. It has a lovely swimming pool, which is really enjoyable after the heat of the town around.
