Hans Coco Palms
Hans Coco Palms, Puri, India.
Set in idyllic surroundings, in what is one of India's best kept secrets - the sea shore of Orissa - The Hans Coco Palms at Puri is a haven of peace, serenity and cultural delights. The experience is a must for those seeking a getaway spot abundant in nature without sacrificing modern comfort.
The property, formerly the retreat of Orissan royalty, is located conveniently away from the hustle and bustle of this ancient pilgrimage town on a stretch of pristine coastline - the perfect natural setting for rejuvenating and relaxing the body and mind.
The splendid garden creates the perfect setting for relaxing walks in the shade of the coconut groves. Ayurvedic treatments and yoga sessions on the lawns by the pool, to add that healing touch to your stay, are also provided on request. The elegant archways from the lobby lead on to a terrace that overlooks the sculpted turquoise pool and the Bay of Bengal.
The renovators have played an emphasis on updating and accentuating the colonial architecture, dramatically set off by the superbly manicured lawns and coconut groves. Though impressive in size, the property has no more than 36 rooms and suite; this attention to quality over quantity complements the individual attention paid to each guest by the discreet yet efficient staff. The elegantly rennovated rooms retain such original details as the intricate wooden ceilings and the colonial furniture highlighted by sublime modern Indian art on the walls.
