CGH Earth, one of the most renowned hospitality groups in Kerala, has decided to reopen its resorts and hotels from June 9.

Its diverse set of properties like Coconut Lagoon, Kumarakom; Marari Beach, Mararikulam; Brunton Boatyard, Fort Kochi; Spice Village, Thekkady; Chittoor Kottaram, Ernakulam and Casino Hotel, Kochi will reopen on that date.

India has decided to allow hotels to open gradually, after easing lockdown restrictions across the country. The government has asked hotels and restaurant owners to encourage contactless mode of operations and offer digital payments, while maintaining social distancing guidelines.

CGH’s announcement came with the marketing line ‘What the world needs now more than ever is a holiday’. While international travel is still off bounds, the Indian hospitality sector hopes to attract domestic tourists, who have been grounded at home for weeks.

“The only change will be the enhanced safety measures to help you enjoy your holiday safely,” CGH stated, while announcing its decision to reopen its properties. The government has asked hotels and hospitality services to ensure a proper record of the guest’s travel history and medical condition, along with relevant ID and self-declaration forms. Luggage should be disinfected before sending them to rooms, the government guidelines have stated.

A family owned enterprise, the group began its operations in 1954 with their flagship property, the Casino Hotel, in Willingdon Island, Kochi. Later, it developed more properties across Kerala and eventually became one of the state’s best-known hospitality ventures under the leadership of Jose Dominic.
