Spice Village

About Us

CGH Earth (formerly known as Casino Group of Hotels) develops and operates travel experiences in multiple locations. A family owned enterprise, we opened doors in 1954 with Casino Hotel in Willingdon Island, Cochin.

What began as a small hotel catering to the Port’s visitors, has evolved into a large experiment in a form of tourism that’s immersive, yet respectful of nature and local ethos. Today, the group’s hotels include Bangaram Island Resort in Lakshadweep, Spice Village in Thekkady, Coconut Lagoon in

Kumarakom, Spice Coast Cruises on the Vembanad Lake, Marari Beach in Mararikulam, Brunton Boatyard and Chittoor Kottaram in Cochin, Maison Perumal in Pondicherry, Visalam in Chettinad, SwaSwara in Gokarna and  Kalari Kovilakom in Kollengode.

We’ve made our roads as we’ve walked upon them, introducing ideas and practices that, we’re happy to say, have now been widely adopted. Yet, the experiment continues apace, as does the search for new harmonies.  So welcome to our world. And enjoy your stay.
