A seafaring relic
The model of the ship that you will see as you walk into our reception area is that of the ‘Batavia’, a legendary merchantman that ended its successful career when shipwrecked off the Australian coast.
Paying tribute to heritage
Eighth Bastion is located on a historic plot of land in Fort Kochi that has seen much building and rebuilding by various colonial settlers since the early 1700s. This site became the crucible of an amalgam of styles, tastes and ideas that toasted the unique Dutch face of Fort Cochin. True to form and history, we named this unique hotel Eighth Bastion.
Dutch soul on display
Eighth Bastion’s Dutch soul is evident everywhere, as seen in the nautical paintings, enamel work and Delft China on prominent display.
