The Island that rose from the Waters

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. 


Check Availability

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.
