Built in the 1950s, the Casino Hotel on Kochi’s historic Willingdon Island is CGHEarth’s flagship property. It reflects the vision of the CGH Earth brand and takes guests on a journey through old and new Kochi through its interiors, surroundings and delicious cuisine. Just a 10-minute drive from Kochi city centre, it’s the perfect place to wind down after a day exploring the many attractions the city has to offer, such as Kochi Fort and the art district. Guests can even delve deeper into the region’s history with a blissful ferry ride into Kochi’s backwaters from the hotel’s private jetty.
The Casino Hotel offers spacious, cosy rooms with stunning views of the city’s serene backwaters. Guests can indulge in rejuvenating Ayurvedic treatments at the in-house spa or take a dip in the chlorine-free swimming pool, where natural salts and minerals are used to benefit the skin and protect against bacteria. A magnificent 50-year-old Peepal tree sits in the hotel’s beautiful surroundings, alongside Neem and Tulsi trees, creating a pure, serene atmosphere that aligns perfectly with CGH Earth’s focus on environmental sensitivity as well as efficient service.
The hotel’s restaurants provide a range of authentic Kerala dishes and fusion delicacies, with its chefs creatively blending indigenous flavours with tastes from the outside world that have arrived in the region over centuries of trade. Kerala’s Eastern Mountains provide wonderful aromatic spices that enhance the flavour of the dishes, all of which can be customised to suit personal tastes.
