This property effortlessly blends history with sophistication. Step into the past as you enter the 200-year-old courthouse in the heart of Fort Kochi and find a modern sanctuary in Ayana’s striking art deco renovation. The hotel structure was constructed as the courthouse and has been witness to many a court proceedings over the last two centuries. After its early days as a courthouse, the historical structure took on a new avatar as the first banking office of ANZ Grindlays, a post which it has duly served as a warehouse for traders dealing in Kerala spices and teas. Ayana inherited this structure only recently post which we have undertaken its restoration first and then its renovation into a luxury boutique hotel. The courtroom has been painstakingly preserved, with each wooden plank restored and treated to create a grand lounge and welcome area for our guests. The extremely large sloping roof is supported by an intricate mechanism of iron tubes that is the representation of the ingenious architecture during the Portuguese occupation of Fort Kochi.
Our dedicated team invites you to come indulge in our specially curated luxury experiences and make the most of your time in vibrant Fort Kochi. Rise early to salute the sun in a rooftop yoga class, venture out to explore the bustling spice markets of Fort Kochi or take a dip in the rooftop pool overlooking the Arabian Sea.
