Eighth Bastion

Bearing the trademark signatures of  CGH Earth hospitality, the 8th Bastion promises to offer clients a unique experience while staying in the heart of the cultural quarters of Cochin.
As with the other resorts in the group, there is a story behind this one too. Legend has it that there were seven bastions in Fort Cochin, built by the Portuguese and strengthened by the Dutch. The 8th Bastion is CGH's endeavour to add to this 500 year old legacy.
