The Casino Hotel is not just one of Cochin's landmarks, it's also a fine introduction to the charms of the city, and indeed, of Kerala. Here, you can get an authentic taste of Kerala's colourful life, diverse cultures and eclectic cuisine.
Blending tradition with more than a dash of modernity, the architecture echoes Kerala's unique hybrids. At our restaurants, you can sample the
gastronomic delights of our famed seafood and more. You can also experience the rejuvenating powers of Ayurveda at the hands of our expert masseurs. And beyond your doorstep, within easy reach, lies bustling Ernakulam, with easy access to the business districts.
This is life at its balanced best, where business, leisure and
wellness come together into a graciously tempered experience.
Willingdon Island was a tiny islet, reclaimed to its present form in 1936, when Cochin Harbour was dredged out of the sea bed in Lord Willingdon's time. The British, of course, were only the latest in a long line of civilizations that have been drawn by the magnet of Cochin's charms. Spice was the wealth of the age of sail, and the Portuguese, the Dutch, the Chinese and the Jews all came here, the gateway to Kerala's mountains and forests, places where gold grew out of the earth.
The centre of Willingdon Island, where we're located,is a peaceful spot of vast grassy spaces and sleepy side-roads. Here, you have the best of both worlds, because you're still a mere 15 minutes away from the city centre.
