Default Hyderabad - Coonoor - Ashtamudi: Route & Accommodation Queries

I had participated in a Mahindra Bolero contest and ended up winning a 4D/3N voucher at any Club Mahindra Travel registered 3 star Hotel.

Of all the locations available, decided to head out to Kerala as its been a while I went to that part of the country (last visit was to Cochin & Munnar in June 2006). While the decision regarding the location and date was being made, our fellow BHPian "Beejay" announce a mother of freebie "Free accomodationin Coonoor during weekdays. So the decision was made to spend a few leisurely days in the Nilgiri's before heading out to Sea all energised.

The route has been decided as Hyd - Bangalore - Mysore - Ooty - Coonoor - Ashtamudi

While clarifying with Club Mahindra, I have beenmade to understand that the Club Mahindra Ashtamudi resort is not on offer. The Resorts on Offer are

Ashtamudi Hotels

Aaditya Resort
Nani Hotel and Resorts

Cochin Hotels

Grand hotel: Standard room wiith breakfast
Mermaid Hotel: Executive Double with breakfast
Hotel Pearl Continental: Deluxe Double with breakfast
A T S Willingdon Hotel: Deluxe A/C Double with breakfast
Sealord Hotel: Deluxe Room with breakfast
Park Central: Deluxe Double with breakfast
Hotel Highway Garden Executive Double with breakfast
Park Residency Deluxe A/C with breakfast
Hotel Grand Seasons

Now we are kind of oscillating between Cochin and Ashtamudi. Please provide your suggestion regarding the hotels mentioned above.

Mahindra guys seems to be very clever. They should have given you their property in Ashtamudi which is good.

I would suggest you go to Astamudi - the Aaditya Resorts.
Kochi is just another commercial city, which deserves just a day visit.
In case you want to evaluate the Kochi hotels, Sealord is a good location in the middle of Ernakulam, facing the sea, next to the boat jetty to take you across to KOchi islands.
