COCHIN - HOTEL CASINO

:: Hotels ::


For us, the Casino Hotel was the beginning. In many ways, it was also a crucible, a place where our ideas could be tested, our mistakes made. And finally, it was the place where our processes were brought to their best possible levels. Our guests tell us that this shows. And indeed, many of the experiences and services that CGH Earth offers were perfected at Casino Hotel first.

For the first time visitor to Kerala, it’s the ideal place to start. For here you can transit grace fully between two worlds. On the one hand, the cosmopolitan delights of Cochin, with its restaurants, shopping and entertainment. On the other, Kerala’s unique culture, manners and cuisine.


Familiar Pleasures

Excursions into the town can be as tiring as they are exhilerating. Specially if you’re not so used to the climate (Kerala usually oscillates between breezy warmth, pouring rain and torrid sunshine!). The Cascade pool can be the perfect restorative. Swimsuits are available in the gift shop - which is worth a visit, even if you aren’t so keen on a dip. You’ll find exquisite examples of traditional Keralan crafts, exotic fabrics, garments, books, handbags and all sorts of fascinating bric-a-brac.

Another great way to relax is an ayurvedic massage. Ayurveda is the ancient Indian system of medicine, and the Casino has its own resident experts and fully equipped facilities

Dusk falls quickly in this part of the world.

If the cocktail hour beckons you, the Vasco da Gama lounge is the hotel’s ever-popular watering hole. You can linger over exotic cocktails (Cochin Thunder, Pink Ladies and some superb concoctions based on the local tipples) or in a new twist, sample some health drinks based on ayurvedic ideas.

If you’re in a mood to confer

The Durbar Hall is the place. It accommodates upto 350 people in gracious style. For smaller gatherings you can opt for the Harbour Lounge Banqueting Suite, which seats 40.

Kerala on a Platter

The restaurants at the Casino hotel have become institutions for Cochin’s food lovers. If you feel a need to temper the exotic with the familiar, The ’Tharavadu’ is the place to begin. It serves an extensive buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Your first breakfast in Kerala could be good olscrambled eggs, your lunch roast chicken and a shrimp salad, your dinner a fiery squid curry and appams ( fluffy rounds of fermented rice and pulses, the traditional accompaniment to Kerala meals). The range of Indian and Continental cuisine is vast.


Tharavadu 

Incidentally means traditional cottage (the ’u’ is almost, but not quite, silent. But don’t worry too much! Only a home grown Keralite can bend his tongue around the intricacies of Malayalam pronunciation.)

The specialty seafood restaurant


 Fort Cochin, is our pride and joy, perpetually popular, though it is open only in the evenings.Good House keeping called Fort Cochin "one of the most renowned seafood restaurants in India". Eating here is like diving off a springboard into the flavours and textures of food throughout Kerala.

Rather than a daily menu, 

A trolley contains the catch of the day, straight off Cochin’s fishing nets. You can expect king prawns, lobster, Indian salmon, snapper, pomfret, squid, mullet, seer fish and more. Once you’ve selected your fish, you get to decide how it’s cooked - whether stir-fried inthe spices of the East, steamed, baked, or poached, and served with the famous string hoppers, rice or naan. See why it’s a good idea to make an advance booking?

To Willington Island

The Hotel is located on Willingdon Island, a man-made legacy of the Raj era and one of the reasons why Cochin ranks amongst the world’s finest harbours. As you drive to to the hotel, you pass the massive dockyards of this ancient port, omnipresent coconut trees and stretches of glittering Arabian Sea.

Now properly introduced 

you are guided you to your room. Simplicity and elegance are the lietmotifs, as indeed they are in all our properties. The parquet floors in the room are a distinctive touch and you can luxuriate with bubble bath and shampoo from the little clay pots in your spacious bathroom. Once you’re rested, ready, and refreshed, it’s time to sail into Cochin.

But if Ernakulam is the heart

 Then the soul of Cochin lies in its older quarters. Here, eight centuries of history are on display, as are a kaleidoscope of cultures. In a span of a few kilometers, you can see a Dutch Harbour house, India’s oldest Jewish synagogue, The Catholic St Francis Church, Portuguese navigator Vasco Da Gama’s grave, The Hindu Raja of Cochin’s Mattancherry Palace, The British Raj-era Cochin Club, and the towering Chinese fishing nets on the harbour!
