To start planning your vacation to Trinity
Overlooking the parade ground Trinity is a delightful old three-bedroom house, which boasts an entirely modern interior design and showcases some of the best modern Indian techniques, stunning antique furniture and objets d’art.
There is a large, central sitting room, which may be used for reading, relaxing and dining. Running off from the sitting room are three excellent bedrooms with large attached bathrooms. They have tiled floors and are decorated superbly with stunning color schemes. There is also an outside sitting area on the first floor, which is ideal for breakfast or resting in the sun. Downstairs, there is a small, shady swimming pool surrounded by comfortable chairs and decking. Although there is no restaurant as such, you can dine at the sister hotel Malabar House where you can enjoy some of the best seafood cuisine in Kerala and delicious tapas in the wine lounge.
Take a walk through historic Fort Cochin for an insight into its Portuguese, Dutch, British and Indian history. Malabar House can provide maps and there's an Indo-Portuguese Museum and the 16th-century Indo-Dutch Mattancherry Palace to explore.
Trinity offers guests three suites - the Red Room, the Blue Room and the Yellow Room. The Red Room is the largest. Both the Red and Blue room can hold an extra bed and have open garden bathrooms. All rooms have air-conditioning, a television and DVD player.
Children are welcomed, but there are no specific facilities. Trinity is better suited to older children as it is more of a retreat than a play area, although all ages are accpeted. Children under the age of 10 years stay for free and babysitting can easily be arranged. No cots are available but extra beds are provided on request for an additional charge.
Facilities at Trinity include a swimming pool and a large, central sitting room, which may be used for reading, relaxing and dining.
You can swim at the hotel and there are massage treatments available at the Malabar hotel. Other activities near the hotel include boat trips, cycling and visits to historical sites, museums, galleries and local markets.
Location & Directions
Cochin, Kerala, India
Trinity is located opposite St. Francis Church in the heart of historical Fort Cochin, in Kerala, southern India.
When to go
Isolated from much of India by the Western Ghats, the climate of Kerala & Karnataka is tropical and as a result of the mountain ranges the area isn’t as dry as much of India. The best time to visit is from January through to April. While there can be the occasional light showers these are just a prelude of the wet weather to come. The weather is generally hot and humid during this early summer. The monsoon season arrives in early June and thus can wash out July and August. September is much more humid as a result of the rainy season, and the fall can be dry but with the humidity this makes it feel quite the warm. There can be a little rain in the night in October and November. The temperatures cool down and the humidity lets up as winter comes in around December, with this season lasting until February when the dry spring returns. Winter can be a pleasant time to visit, especially if you’re looking to head off the beach and explore this Indian land of mystery.
