The CGH Earth chain has developed a model of ecological luxury hotels that is revolutionizing the trip to South India. Without making concessions to comfort, they have laid the foundations of sustainable tourism for the most demanding traveler. We discover them.
Luxury hotels in Kerala
The adventure of CGH Earth began in 1993. In that year The Spice Village was born , the first of its ecological luxury hotels. Respecting the construction style of the tribes of Periyar, they took advantage of a space full of fruit and spices and built a resort where the essential comforts were eclipsed by the authenticity of the traditional architecture and landscape. In this way, the visit to the Periyar National Park became a complete experience that combined respect for nature and local communities from check in at the hotel to the jungle safari of the Western Ghats .
The model has been replicated in different places of Kerala , creating ecological luxury hotels with unique personality. At Fort Kochi, the majestic Brunton Boatyard is perhaps its most impressive property. Recovering the Victorian shipyards in the middle of the port of Fort Kochi, the hotel perfectly combines the Portuguese, Dutch and British heritage that distinguishes the cultural capital of Kerala . If the spaces impress, the Brunton Boatyard hotel also captivates the senses, since in the kitchen they have compiled traditional recipes from old Cochin families to crown a dream stay. In the backwaters , Coconut Lagoon by CGH Earth incorporates a rice plantation to your resort inspired by the villages on the banks of these channels. In Marari Beach Resort , a dense palm grove separates the hotel from the beach so that each guest finds his space of disconnection in the middle of a fishing village. Finally, in Chittor Kottaram you can experience the one key hotel , an old palace of the Maharajas of Cochin that only takes one client at a time .
Eco-friendly luxury hotels: ayurveda and much more
Ayurvedic massage , but also Sattvik cuisine, which is associated with Indian medicine, is an essential part of CGH Earth. However, the next step for the chain has been to create ecological luxury hotels focused mainly on wellness: their wellness hotels . In Kalari Kovilakom , near the spiritual capital of Kerala, Thrissur, yoga, healthy eating and Ayurvedic massages are the backbone of the experience. The complete treatment of the most exclusive panchakarma that you can imagine is set in a space that contains all the essential elements of the Keralí culture and the highest demand for service and comfort.
If the use of renewable energy and respect for the environment and local communities were the flagship of CGH Earth hospitality, today it can be said that the hotel chain has transcended these principles to create a totally different and original way of getting to know South India. .
