Five Star and Too Much Luxury at Cochin, for me

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 20, 2008

I had been invited to give a presentation and the organizing committee had booked Le Meridien for three nights in December 2008. Very nice hotel with wonderful grounds and nice view over the river, but alas i had to work hard all three days that i did not have a chance to enjoy any aspect of the facilities: except the breakfast and the happy hour at the Lounge.

Unique Quality: There is no way to know that you are in Kerala or in India. Even the staff is generically friendly and efficient. very good facilities and efficient. wi fi charges of 15 usd per day i thought was too much, why cant they throw in the wi fi when they are charging you 200 usd per night for the room..
8 km outside town and you are isolated from the rest of the world if that is what you want. i missed the familiarity of fort cochin and the chance to walk around and have a cup of tea wherever i felt like..
frankly this was a bit too much luxury for me. (even though I flew Business Class on Air France to Bombay to get here)..
On top of a Car and a driver was at my disposal, it meant more work and more visits and the three days i was in Cochin ( and that coincided with the three days in India) i was tired all the time because of lack of sleep.. so there is no point in checking into a resort when you dont have the time to enjoy it

Luxury Hotel in the Lost World

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 7, 2004

The Le Meridien is a beautiful, modern luxury hotel. Although the decor is somewhat sterile and conventional in many ways - little to distinguish it from others around the world besides some "Indian" art and artifacts, and not very much local "color"-- you will find the rooms are very nice, with inlaid wood and marble details. Just about every service you would expect is available, although the business support facilities were a bit limited and staff were not always available. There is a very nice health club and a traditional ayurvedic spa. You must experience an ayurvedic massage in Kerala. The restaurant was very good and quite large. On Friday the restaurant turned into a night club/disco, with an Hawaiian themed party during my stay. It looked as though no expense was spared in the decor. Everyone entering received either a real orchid lei or flower corsage. Be aware that male/female couples are allowed in only (so no singles). The entertainment that night was a hoot, with Russian models presenting local fashions (girls in sequined butterfly halter tops with hot pants and men in Saturday Night Fever costumes) and a few dance contests. I felt like I was at a high school dance in the fifties when they had competitions for couples to dance as close as possible without touching, and chose best male and female dancers. One thing that added a very surrealistic touch were the presence of tall, unfinished buildings that rose up out of the coconut palms some distance from the hotel. Looking like part of the set of a Planet of the Apes movie, I felt as if I was in a post-apocalyptic world in a decadently appointed sanctuary surrounded by the remnants of a destroyed modern civilization.

Unique Quality: Ayurvedic Spa, Exceptionally clean, Nice views from rooms, luxury accomodations.
