Jade Kochi is a lovely home stay that is built utilizing 80% reclaimed materials. The doors, windows, staircase, wood, tiles and even the laterite stones that the walls were built with were reclaimed from old buildings that were being dismantled– many of them heritage buildings that were in the surrounding area. The home was designed by the owners and built with a team of talented craftsmen that fitted all their gathered ‘treasures’ together.
Situated at the entrance of Fort Kochi near Veli Ground, Jade Kochi is a cozy home stay with three spacious bedrooms in a high ceiling styled bungalow. Josey and Elsy, an incredibly welcoming couple. are your hosts and will provide you with a delicious, complimentary Kerala breakfast following each evenings stay as well as help you with any questions you may have. Welcome to Jade!
All rooms are large, bright and cheerful, have dedicated toilet/shower facilities and are equipped with air conditioning (use is optional). The Orange Room is located on the ground floor and has twin beds. The Red Room is located upstairs with a 6′ x 6′ bed. The Blue Room, also located upstairs, has twin beds.
At Jade Kochi, guests can relax in the living and dining room areas or revitalize after a long day of touring on the garden verandah. Artwork, primarily by contemporary Indian artists, is integral to every room and passage. In fact, this home was designed to accommodate a portion of the owner’s significant collection. A loft style office area with computer/internet access is available to pacify your needs to stay in touch.
A complimentary Kerala breakfast is served every morning. The menu changes daily. If guests prefer a continental breakfast– toast and choice of eggs can be substituted. Fresh, local fruits, coffee or tea of course are included with your breakfast repast. Lunch and dinner meals are also available upon request, prepared with loads of care and reasonably priced.
