Tucked away into the central IT hub of Kochi, one would perceive that the location poses as a challenge to this 5 star hotel, but on the contrary, Four Points by Sheraton chooses to use its location as its key marketing strategy. “Our location is our biggest plus as we are right at the centre of Infopark, Smart City and the business community. We offer great spaces for business meetings and gatherings. For international guests, we are aptly placed; away from the traffic blare and the city buzz. At the same time, we are well connected to the airport, top tourist destinations like Alappuzha, Fort Kochi, Munnar, Athirappilly and the Lulu Mall for all your shopping needs. It is also a great weekend get-away for Kochiites who are right at the city center,” explains Michael, who hails from Mumbai and has more than a decade of experience in the hospitality industry.
The hotel has 218 guest rooms ranging from Deluxe Suites, Executive Suites to Deluxe and Executive rooms, each having 48 inch flat screen TV, Wifi connection and plush 13 inch comfortable bedding! “The 13 inch bedding is definitely one of the largest beds you would find in the city. We have put in a lot of thought and effort into ensuring that our guests are comfortable,” says Michael.
So what are the other highlights at the hotel? “Four Points by Sheraton goes by the motto of ‘Travel Reinvented’. It is very important to us that our guests are engaged. The 14th floor at the hotel is where we have the infinity pool and the Fitness Center that offers a breath taking view of the city. We would also be launching the spa on the same floor very soon. The hotel has four F&B outlets that is dedicated to Indian and international cuisines,” he continues.
The ‘All Spice’ is a ‘must visit’ restaurant at this property that offers fine dining to unwind and relax. It offers high quality coastal delicacies from the Konkan belt, Mangalore, Maharashtra, Goa, Karwar and Kerala! The other hi light at this restaurant is that it is completely managed by women – both at the kitchen and the service level. Next, the all-day dining restaurant or ‘The Eatery’ offers everything from continental delicacies to oriental and Indian cuisines, fast food and yes, authentic sushi!
To satisfy your sweet tooth, the Deli has a wonderful choice of sandwiches, chocolates, cookies and pastries and of course, the Caper is the high energy lounge bar that you cannot miss! “There is a very vibrant and trendy bar close to the infinity pool that would be selectively open for special meetings and gatherings. To host events, we have a total event space of around 5000 sq ft, which includes the Ball room that has a seating capacity of 300, the pre function area and the lawn. The ambience of the lawn is an added plus and is the perfect spot for family gatherings or corporate get togethers.”
