Chittoor Kottaram is the private residence of the Raja of Cochin, built in the 19th century. It is the perfect space for your loved ones to get together amidst a backdrop of luxury beside idyllic backwaters. You will be our only guests in the residence, with our Kaaryasthan (caretaker) at your beck and call.

The space
At Chittoor Kottaram there are no other guests – just you and your companions. It’s the perfect sanctuary to make memories of a lifetime. Feel transported in time the moment you arrive by boat, and are greeted by your very own entourage.
The architecture reflects the heritage of a bygone era, and the interiors are decked with timeless artefacts and antiques. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, and one on the first floor with an attached living room. The veranda opens to the lush green garden overlooking the backwaters. The serene environs provide the perfect backdrop for laughter and delightful conversations with family and friends. Take a complimentary backwater cruise and bask in the glow of great company, as the sun sets over the horizon.

A feast for your senses:

The cuisine comprises of the best kept secrets from Kerala's kitchens that includes authentic vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes. Our personal chef can prepare delicacies as per your tastes. You have the choice to savour your meals at any location of your choice - by the waterside with a view of the lake, at the gazebo, in the veranda, or in the company of nature in the open garden.
Please note that all three meals are included in the rates listed.

Hi. I’m Vineeth and I will be your host. My two passions are food and travel. I’m a self-confessed foodie and I love Kerala cuisine. After all, who doesn’t love the food from their home town? So, when you dine with us, you can be sure that you will be served only authentic food, prepared with fresh, local produce, and made with love.

My other love is travel. I guess that explains why I’ve worked for one of Kerala’s leading eco-hospitality houses – CGH Earth. I’ve made sure that my conscience is as clear as the environment. And that the rich heritage of my land gets the respect it deserves.

I can honestly say that you will not find a better guide or friend in your Kerala adventure. I may be uncompromising when it comes to conservation, but I will go out of my way to make sure you feel at home. Let me know what you imagined this holiday to be like, and I will help you live your dream.

See you soon.
