With a group of friends from my College (St. Johns Medical College, Bangalore) I traveled down to my home state to attend a wedding reception. Though I lived not so far from the city of Cochin, was not sure of where I could accommodate a group of 20 (with 14 boys and 6 girls). I was particular on getting some place which would give them all a feel of a traditional Kerala home stay. The search was on and through this very same site I found Palm Grove Villa. The choice had to be made and the calls were made. With the first round of discussions we were quite convinced to go all out from Palm Grove. Because we knew this was what we wanted.
Situated right next to the heart of city, but never makes you feel so. Thanks to the trees and the lovely greenery. I learned from the owner that this was his ancestral house. The rooms and bathrooms are well furnished. We had booked the entire resort. Except two, all the other rooms were Air conditioned. Manger and a room boy is around 24*7.
Thanks to the trees and huge compound again... the group enjoyed the stay. No cufews, No restrictions, We could do whatever we wanted at this place. And nothing can beat chatting with your friends on the long corridors of this place watching the monsoon showers !
The only drawback would be probably that they don't have in house kitchen. But still small restaurants are there in walk able distance.
The rates are affordable and not overpriced !! It's worth what you pay!
If to bring my friends again to God's own country I will surely opt for Palm Grove.
Highly recommended for family with kids,
group of college students (book the place completely)
individuals who want to be in the city but still enjoy a village atmosphere !!!!
