'The Dutch legacy re-imagined.' "Legend has it that there were seven bastions in Fort Kochi, built by the Portuguese and strengthened by the Dutch. Adding on to this 500-year-old legacy of defending oncoming conquests is CGH Earth's Eighth Bastion. Built by blending contemporary and colonial styles each room has a distinct appeal. The echoes from the past come alive here while the air carries an unmistakable sweet scent." Unknown to many the Dutch East India Company, or the VOC, was one of the earliest global business undertakings. The Seven Bastions (from which we derived our unique name) referred to a type of layout peculiar to VOC Forts, a tradition they followed from Surat to the straits of Sumatra where they had their presence. Bastion of style The Eighth Bastion has two faces: one contemporary, even post-modern with clean cubic lines and chic retro touches in its striking architecture. The other is the felt but understated elegance of its interiors that emphasize comfort combined with plenty of native sunlight and air. Our Dutch soul, however, is evident everywhere, as seen in the nautical paintings, enamel work and Delft China on prominent display. BASTION ROOM WITH PRIVATE TERRACE: Spacious rooms that have a partial view of the sea. These rooms come with a television. BASTION ROOM: There are 14 twin bedded rooms in all, of this type, having views of the pool, the quaint street and also the gardens. They come with a television and the bathrooms have bathtubs. BASTION ROOM WITH GARDEN VERANDAH: Spacious rooms on the ground floor with the view of the Private Garden. These rooms come with a television and a bathtub. Facilities Swimming Amidst Heritage: The pool at Eighth Bastion is an anytime indulgence. You can use it to cool off after a hectic ramble through the historic streets of Fort Kochi or when you feel like some brisk laps to get your sluggish circulation going. Even in the monsoon the pool remains inviting for those who are born water friendly. WiFi Available: WiFi is available across the property. Still, we suggest that you get to go unplugged as much as you can to soak in the aura of Fort Kochi, the beach and life around. Hotel Bicycles: Pedal your way through a sunny morning's outing through the bazaars and by-lanes of old Fort Kochi.
