Do you want to live like a king, at least for a day, amidst all the regal paraphernalia? Then step into Chittoor 'kottaram' (palace), the royal residence of the erstwhile ruling family of Cochin.
The palace on the banks of placid backwaters in Kochi is a mute witness to over three centuries of history. The King of Cochin used to rest at this palace whenever the monarch visited the nearby Sree Krishna Temple. Now, the palace has been converted into a private heritage resort where you can stay like a king.
Royalty oozes from all services provided by the resort and you will be brought to the facility on a boat, like how the king and other members of the royal family were transported to the palace.
The package for the stay at the palace includes massages, cultural programs, and a backwater cruise. If you are lucky, the present descendants of the royal family may invite you for tea.
This palace steeped in history is an ideal place if you are looking for privacy laced with luxury.
