Casino Group

Casino Hotel, Willingdon Island, in the heart of the Bay of Cochin, is a British legacy, created by Sir Robert Bristow when he dredged the seabed to secure the city`s future as an international port. Idealy located between Mattancheaary and the modern city of Ernakulam. The flagship of the Casino Group was establishes an the year 1957 and last renovated in 2000. It could best be described as a contemporary hotel with all mod cons one would expect in a Five Star Hotel.

LOCATION

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.

DISTANCES

Situated on Willingdon Island, 40 Km from Cochin international airport. 06 Km from downtown Ernakulam.

Accomodation

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 pronounciation.

FACT SHEET

The Casino Hotel greets you in a traditional 'varvelpu', or welcome. The garland, the aarti and the proffered coconut water are gestures you'll become familiar with as you journey through our state. 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.

Splendours, New and Old. If you've never been to an Indian city before, Cochin could be a riot of sensation at first sight. It's one of the most cosmopolitan cities in India, yet mixes all the spice of tradition with its modernity.

Bustling Ernakulam is the newer and commercial part of the twin cities. Enjoy your last scoop of Chocolate Chip icecream for a while (the Keralan desserts will ensure you don't miss it much). Visit the malls and stores if you want to stock up on clothes or personal effects. Most of the world's leading brands are available here and if you're adventurous enough, so are lots of colourful options in sarees and 'mundus' (the traditional Keralan mens' dress).

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!

RESTAURANTS

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 ol' scrambled 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.The speciality seafood restaurant, Fort Cochin, is our pride and joy, perpetually popular, though it is open only in the evenings. Good Housekeeping 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.
