The Queen of the Arabian Sea, Kochi…A land known for its spices, backwaters and of course now the Biennale! The locals enjoy the balmy weather, the spicy cuisine and the meandering tourists who come to experience God’s own country in all its glory.
Kochi, known for its cosmopolitan culture and its old world charm, is a prime attraction for tourists. Fort Kochi is a melting pot of cultures – local, British, Dutch and Portuguese.
Discover Fort Kochi and Mattancherry on bicycle or on foot and experience those delicate nuances you would otherwise miss. A narrow street starting from the Jewish Synagogue is lined with antique shops and heritage buildings filled with a rich aroma of spices.
With the Arabian Sea at your doorstep, Kochi offers a bonanza for seafood lovers. Abad’s Wild Fish store at Chullickal, a short distance from the synagogue gives you the option of buying fresh seafood and having it cooked at Hotel ABAD – the concept of you buy we cook.
With a number of charming cafes in the vicinity, you can never fall short of options. Furthermore you can explore Fort Kochi just by its eateries. They say the route to any one’s (it’s not just men!) heart is through their stomach. Now with a full stomach, your heart definitely clamours for a spot of rest. Close to the heritage area walkable distance to the St. Francis church, Chinese fishing nets and the numerous eateries is the Abad Pepper Route, a one of a kind bed and breakfast hotel in Fort Kochi. A five minute walk from the bus station, it’s quick to spot, easy to reach. With clean and well furnished rooms, Abad Pepper Route offers its guests a good night sleep and freshly made breakfast.
With the Kerala Kathakali Centre right next door and the biennale venue just a few metres away Pepper Route provides an ideal base to explore Fort-Kochi.
