Style- Modern art deco
Setting- Cochin’s cricketing Parade Ground
Once the Fort Cochin headquarters of the Dutch East India
Company, the building that houses Malabar Escapes: Trinity
may be 150 years old, but the interiors are as contemporary

quirky canvasses make the hotel seem like a slice of Miami
life in South India. And, with only three bedrooms, privacy
is assured – the ideal for escape from the Cochin crowds.
