The Tower House sits facing the Chinese fishing nets, marking the spot of a 17th century light house which has given it the name. Cannon balls once fired out from its thick bastion-walls. This scallop-walled twin-house looks rather like a ship and indeed, boats were brought in on high tide and parked downstairs in its stable and dry dock! Since 1982, it is owned by Peirce Leslie. The character of The Tower House lies in its unpretentious yet proud bearing, almost grandfather like, it sits looking out over the sea, a spirit of adventure surrounds it even today, taking one back to stories of high seas told and retold over centuries. Stately colonial pillars hold up its vast, high-ceilinged halls. The generous arched doors welcoming one to step in to another world where time stretches, pauses to watch the sun set, and then moves ever so lightly towards dawn. Yes it’s the magic of spaces that have seen more history than we will ever see, spaces that we know will still be there to delight those who come long after us. The furniture is an eclectic mix with no attempt to recreate rooms of any one era or type because the residential structure was added on to. It’s the light pouring in through the windows, skylights and the vastness of the indoor spaces that make for an unforgettable experience. Most of the rooms have large four poster beds, and bathrooms that happily accommodate large tubs. The windows have views of the trees or the sea depending on where they are located. Restored to be compatible with present-day needs while maintaining its structural integrity, it reflects different periods rather than artificially being faithful to any single one. It takes you back in time, as moods and memories woven together create a fabric that is strong but sits ever so lightly. The above uncompromising principles of practical use of material and form dictated The Tower House renovation too and its adherence to these very values of being honest to the time we live in while respecting the past that has set new standards in heritage tourism. Discover the old world charm where, sailors, travellers, traders, planters feasted and danced under chandeliers, suspended from high wooden ceilings.

Tower House is a well maintained gem of a hotel with excellent staff and impeccably maintained rooms. We stayed for 4 nights in one of the largest rooms in the hotel named Mateu, which I guess, for the price we paid, you can nowhere get that room size in entire Cochin. The room was extremely spacious , with 2 large French windows and a big big bathroom! The wooden floors, the furnitures, the fixtures, all will take you on a nostalgic trip back to the Portuguese and Dutch era!! The staff were impeccable! Special mention to Mr Ranjith and Mr Vetri at the front desk, who never say NO to anything you ask for!! Hospitality at 100 percent! Will always stay at Tower house Neemrana whenever I go back to Cochin again. It had left me a memory that I don’t want to forget! Highly highly recommended!!!
