Kerala is called god's own country and rightly so. It has a 600km coast dotted by some of the most pristine beaches. Kerala is one of the few laid back places in India far from the frenzy that India is known for. It has a network of backwaters which can be explored by houseboats. Kerala is also famous for being a mediation center and home to the ancient ayurvedic treatments. Kerala is home to a lot of wildlife. Elephants can be found almost everywhere and if you are lucky enough, you might spot a tiger too. Kerala has been the spice capital of the world for ages and you can enjoy a walk through one of the plantations, or go on a tea tasting ceremony at one of the numerous plantations. There are theaters and dances and numerous festivals marking the calendar all year long.
Kochi is one of the biggest cities in Kerala. For our stay in Kerala, we would be staying in the historic town of Fort Kochi, which is far away from the hustle and bustle of the city with all the amenerties that you would need. The best time to visit Kochi is between September to Januray every year. Kochi earlier comprised Ernakulam, Fort Kochi and Mattancherry Palace but now refers to the sprawling urbanization. Fort Kochi and Mattancherry palace remain wonderfully serene, steeped with sepia-tinted memories of past glory and heritage.
COLONIAL STAY IN KOCHI
Fort Kochi has many beautiful Colonial Hotel stays. We have opted for one of them along with all the facilities. The stay will have approx. 12-15 rooms (Both private and double). They come equipped with plenty of space for work and play. Along side with an amazing restaurant and swimming pool for a quick dip.
Our stay would be located just around the corner within Fort Kochi city limits surrounded by water.
The nearest Co-working Space is 13Kms far, for this we are arranging an in-house Coworking Space, the whole place would be netted with Wifi and common spaces, and lots of open space in the garden to catch some sun. We will have meetups and interaction sessions with local startup community.
Mornings will start with a few lessons in Yoga and Mediation, to make your day more productive. We will have cookery classes in our little garden, lots of get-together and parties at the stay. Each weekend we will go on a getaway trip to the most famous spots around kochi, and spend a day or two.
