Chittoor Kottaram, Kerala
Chittoor Kottaram is a simple three-bedroom private villa
Palace, constructed in the local Keralan style of cool whitewash
walls, timber frames and tiled roofing, situated in the lush
backwaters on the outskirts of Cochin. CGH Earth has leased
the palace directly from descendents of the royal family of Cochin,
offering it as a private villa residence, which can accommodate up
to six people at a time.
Guests arrive at the private palace by boat through a private
canal and will follow in the footsteps of the Rajah of Cochin with
a retinue of household staff on hand to cater to their whim.
A chef will serve up local vegetarian delicacies and recipes
from the royal household of Cochin, including banana fritters laced
with honey, homemade chutneys and rice dumplings. Local
therapists are on hand to provide traditional Keralan massages.
Chittoor Kottaram offers the opportunity to soak in the
tranquility of Kerala experience, with opportunities to take
private boat rides in the backwaters, fishing trips, and walking
tours or simply enjoy relaxing in the extensive gardens.
