The Malabar House
What may just be one of the fanciest boutique hotels in Kerala, Malabar flaunts its über-hip blend of modern colours and period fittings like it’s not even trying. While the suites are huge and lavishly appointed, the standard rooms are more snug...
This thoughtfully renovated 1860s heritage home is a joy to visit, let alone stay in. The 10 rooms have been restored to their former glory and have bathtubs, antique furniture and period fixtures...
Spread languidly over 9 hectares of grounds, this luxurious resort offers the ultimate in seclusion: it’s reachable only by private boat...

The cheapest beds here (and in all of Pune) are in cabins next to the bar, where you might get that seafaring feeling! The private rooms are in converted family homes, not the most luxurious of their kind...
This 1960s hotel, with its polished original art deco fittings, oozes the sort of retro cool that modern hotels would kill to recreate...
Hilton Garden Inn Trivandrum
Even though the arctic-level AC would make penguins shiver, this ultrachic business-focused hotel is still a great place to stay. Expect 3m chandeliers in the lobby, zealous staff and plush rooms stuffed with pillows, couches and all mod cons.
Even though all that glitters is not gold here, these almost-swanky rooms are perfectly comfortable and finished with all the stylish dark-wood fixtures your heart desires. It’s set back from MG Rd enough to shield the noise.

Ktdc Mascot Hotel Thiruvananthapuram
Lots of period touches, massive hallways and an imposing reception area lend this place an aura of old-world charm. It has a monster pool and ayurvedic spa, and is convenient for visits to the zoo, museums and galleries.
This businesslike hotel has white-tiled and sterile hallways more reminiscent of a hospital, but the lamp-lit rooms are more welcoming and come with spotless bathrooms.
Jeevan Ayurvedic Beach Resort
Expect inoffensively decorated, decent-sized rooms with bathtubs and an alluring pool – one of the few on the seafront. All but the cheapest ground-floor rooms have sea views and balconies.
Costa Gama Home Stay @ Fort Kochi
With just three rooms, this cosy little place gets good reviews. Across the road are another three rooms in a heritage-style building with a nice terrace.
Quiet and pleasant, with bright, restful rooms.
Hotel Mother Tree
There are just a few minuscule rooms in this compact homestay, but the cleanliness and neat rooftop chill-out space make it worth seeking out.
Nonguests can swim at the small pool of Grande Residencia Hotel for Rs500 per person.
