The Old Courtyard


Swimming Pool


Over 200 years old, the Old Courtyard is a quaint Portuguese building tucked away in one of the lanes of the historic Fort Cochin. A number of antique shops precede the hotel, preparing you for what lies ahead. The building has maintained its original structure and form and you cannot help but stare at the beautiful remains in awe of its majestic beauty. The stone walls, high ceilings and the open courtyard each have a story to tell and keep you wondering of the lifestyle of people who lived here once.

The Old Courtyard Hotel was known as Lily Koder’s house. The eminent Koder family of Fort Cochin, who were Jews. The house was built for Lily Koder’s brother, but unfortunately he did not live long to occupy the house. And since Lily Koder was unmarried, she lived in that house with some nephews. When the nephews migrated to Israel, she lived there alone. Her brother lived in the Koder House which was connected to her house by the shop next door and by a bridge over the road. She used to spend time and eat at her brother’s house. Lily Koder was well known among her colleagues and in the society and the young girls used to go to her to learn bridge and French. She died in the early 90’s and the house was left abandoned until it was bought over in 1999.

Jacob and Rose Kuruvinakunnel found Lily Koder’s house the perfect setting to start their own hotel. The old mango tree in the center of the courtyard was the clincher. Being a graduate of Ecole Les Roches, Cran Montana, Switzerland, it was their dream to find a place they could transform to a small and intimate hotel.

With Jacob’s love for antique furniture, he searched all over to find the kind of furniture he envisioned to fill the place. Thus, he created rooms in the colonial style of four poster beds, intricate cupboards, tables, lion face, 5 headed elephant and other unusual pieces. His love of art enabled him to collect original art work and paintings which are show cased in the Old Courtyard Restaurant and rooms.
