#2 of 16 in Aluva
Set amidst the lush Greenscape, Once upon the River is one of the finest resorts that proffers an unparalleled, luxury retreat on the banks of the river Periyar in Aluva. It’s a quintessential escape from the bustling city life, yet within a convenient 12 minutes’ drive from the Cochin International Airport (CIAL) and easy access to corporate hubs and shopping malls in Kochi.

This was our last stay in Cochin before leaving to Holland again. It is really close to the airport but you can't tell because it is so quiet. Beautiful garden with well maintained swimming pool. The food was good and the staff did everything to give us a wonderful stay. Also the transport to the airport so early in the morning was a nice (and free!)service.
