Q Tell us about the USP of your ho­tel. Novo­tel Kochi In­fopark is the only in­ter­na­tional ho­tel brand in Kakkanad, strate­gi­cally lo­cated at the en­trance of Kochi’s IT/ ITES cor­ri­dor – In­fopark. The ho­tel has been taste­fully crafted needs of a trav­eller along with those that work around the area. It is a per­fect melange of moder­nity and lo­cal tra­di­tions which de­sign elements - be it the lobby paint­ing, car­pets, the royal ma­hogany bar en­trance door or the cui­sine served at the restau­rant. pool over­look­ing the lush green Link Val­ley where guests can un­wind whilst en­joy­ing sump­tu­ous snacks and drinks from the Sun Deck pool side bar.

Q Tell us about the pe­cu­liar trait of the re­gion your prop­erty is lo­cated in. Kochi is a tra­di­tion­ally tourism driven mar­ket but has lately evolved as a strong MiCE des­ti­na­tion with the rise of var­i­ous con­ven­tion cen­tres in the city. More­over, Kochi has seen a steady and rapid rise in in­dus­trial cor­ri­dors around the city, lead­ing to grow­ing de­mands for busi­ness and tran­sit stays.

Q What’s your over­all take on hos­pi­tal­ity in South In­dia? The hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try has been grow­ing ex­po­nen­tially, wit­ness­ing one of the high­est oc­cu­pancy rates in over a decade. Sim­i­larly, South In­dia has also been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing sim­i­lar growth. Since South In­dia has some­thing to of­fer to both leisure and busi­ness trav­ellers, it has be­come one of the most soughtafte­r des­ti­na­tions.

Q How are you plan­ning to cope with the com­pe­ti­tion in the vicin­ity? We, at Ac­corHo­tels, be­lieve in the phi­los­o­phy of mak­ing every guest ‘Feel Wel­come’ and at all the Novo­tel prop­er­ties across the globe, our fo­cus is to pro­vide a con­tem­po­rary ‘home away from home’ ex­pe­ri­ence. At Novo­tel Kochi In­fopark, we em­u­late this by of­fer­ing guests a com­fort­able space, al­low­ing them to re­lax, have fun, work or have mem­o­rable din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.

Novo­tel Kochi In­fopark’s strate­gic lo­ca­tion from the key and emerg­ing busi­ness district of Kochi has emerged as a solution for all trav­ellers in terms of sav­ing travel time.
