Bearing trademark signatures of CGH Earth hospitality, the Eighth Bastion promises to offer clients a unique experience while staying in the heart of the cultural quarters of Cochin. As with the other resorts in the group, there is a story behind this one too. Legend has it that there were seven bastions in Fort Cochin, built by the Portuguese and strengthened by the Dutch. The 8th Bastion is CGH’s endeavour to add to this 500 year old legacy. Built in a style that combines the contemporary with the Colonial, the Eighth Bastion is located not far from the many historical and cultural highlights of Cochin including the 15th century Chinese fishing nets. The decor is both colonial yet contemporary and the property offers 19 spacious rooms, some of which overlook the Arabian Sea.
