Commenting on the twin-signing, Deepika Rao, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Ginger Hotels, said, “It is a proud moment for us. With these two signings, we enter Kochi – an important focus market for Ginger. These hotels will cater to distinct and high demand micro-markets of Kochi. We are delighted to partner with Canton Residency Private Limited for these projects.

The 100-room Ginger Kochi will be located on the Karaid Airport road, just outside Cochin International Airport (CIA). This hotel will address the demand from the airport, MICE from the CIA Convention Centre and the surrounding industrial areas. It is a greenfield project.

Ginger Kochi, Kalamassery with 75 rooms will be located on Kochi-Salem Highway, opposite Cochin University Metro Station. It will provide convenient access to Cochin SEZ and the commercial hub of Kalamassery that houses key IT companies, industries, Cochin University and the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium. The project is in the brownfield stage.

Both hotels will feature Ginger’s signature new design rooms, an all-day diner, meeting rooms and a fitness centre.

Called the “Queen of the Arabian Sea”, Kochi is known as the financial, commercial, and industrial capital of Kerala. The city has a cosmopolitan culture and is one of the leading tourist destinations in India with backwaters and marine life, beautiful museums, temples and forts.
