The time we planned this trip, i was expecting some city life in Cochin, as rest i knew would be the hill station and beach properties, but to my surprise this was a property very secluded from everything. huge property, was suppose to be a palace but not a very palace palace kind of property , nycly made up hotel, huge gardens all over, and yes waters every where.
We went to this small place just opposite to the entrance (not the gate- entrance leading to reception) there was a small jetty made to anchor small boats and we just sat on the ledge and it was just amazing and serene in front was the peaceful waters and ahead of it was the famous Marine drive road and bridge which we could admire.
Its basically an palace constructed on an island so there is water surrounding everywhere.
There is even a neat pool that people can enjoy, food served was really nice and the buffet was best among all KTDC properties.
IT was a really relaxing stay and trust me peaceful....
