Set in the heart of God’s Own Country, the Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Kochi is a leaf out of Port Muziris history—an important port in the ancient trade route. The boutique hotel, helmed by ‘Studio HBA,’ is a stylish homage to the artistic spirit of the city. Just 0.3 kms away from the airport, the hotel radiates a shabby-chic vibe adorned with fresh planters and 70 curated commissioned art pieces, including works of 12 artists from Kochi Biennale that helped piece the hotel together. The Biennale—India’s largest contemporary art event, put Kochi on the map as the art hub of the country.

Enter the lobby and you will notice the walls embellished with tropical hand-painted tiles, envisioned by Lila—the muse and the mascot. A unique blend of old-world charm and contemporary amenities—rediscover the once-forgotten Port Muziris—in the 54 spatial rooms which are replete with painted walls, wooden fans and traditional Kerala extended sofa displaying cultural accents.

Indulge in a tea tasting ceremony at the tea lounge—The Kettle that boasts of an eclectic beverage menu featuring local tea and coffee in exotic flavours. The hotel’s laidback and eclectic vibe extends to the rooftop where you can unwind with a few laps by the pool which offers breathtaking views of the lush greens. Your Kerala retreat starts here…
