“Excellent Dining Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Had an excellent Dining experience in Masala. I really liked the way chef cooks in-front of you. The food was good to certain point.

Though Roma was not upto the mark. I would just give an average mark for the Bolognese.
The whole facility of the hotel is awesome and great facility. Don't forget to visit the pool side bar.

The sports bar is again something "awesome".

Booked this hotel as was staying over in Cochin for early morning flight and could not find a good hotel near airport. The rooms are extremely well maintained, staff very responsive and well trained. True value for money for staying over for short duration. The hotel does not have a spa but good pool and gym. The only challenge was the limited breakfast options with the package.

This is a very good property. Rooms are airy, spacious & well maintained. Service quality is not upto the mark. It took me approx 5 min to complete the formalities before I could get the keys of the room. The turn around time for orders (food) is even slower... Imagine spending 15min to get your desired stuff during breakfast time. Not upto the mark. The number of TV channels (options) are very limited & does not cater to the requirement of the business travelller or for foreign tourist. Mostly limited to the regional channels apart from a couple of news channels

If you have to be in the harbour: 30 min drive.
If you want to visit old Cochin: 45 drive.
If you want to visit all the foreign car importers: perfect the have their show rooms on the same road.
Rooms: perfect. Bathrooms: perfect. Bar: not cosy. Restaurant: the Indian restaurant has a fine selection but NO wine list.
Staff in the restaurant: improvement necessary (friendly enough but incompetent if comes to make separate bills for a group).
Try swimming in the rooftop pool during a thunderstorm but beware of the very slippery surroundings of the pool. This is an experience.
The spa staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Choose higher floors (view)
