Gear up for a Dutch Onam
IF YOU are harping on the note that it's the same each year, here's Onam, which you can celebrate with a difference.
The KTDC Bolgatty Palace Heritage Hotel, sporting a new look presents a locale distinctly different from any other city eatery. Amidst the stillness of unspoilt nature and the magnificence of well-preserved Dutch ambience the Onam celebrations are on from August 18. Quite appropriately it began on a sweet note with a Payasam Mela. There will be palada, parippu and pazha pradhaman at highly attractive prices of Rs. 10 per cup, and Rs 90 per litre, all in high quality, food grade plastic containers. An added attraction is the home delivery facility, if the order is above 10 litres.
For those unable to hop across the waters to the hotel, a new customer service for Onam, is the availability of payasam at the KTDC Shopping Complex, Marine Drive, Kochi.
On Thiruvonam day, there is Onam Sadya at the majestic restaurant, served in traditional style, priced at a moderate Rs. 150 per person. From August 22 to 25 the Palace Hotel will host a delicious dosa festival with 20 crunchy to yummy varieties.
For families the whole trip to this festive island can be made more enjoyable by hiring a speedboat exclusively for them. Details and reservations can be made at these nos: 750003, 750500.
So this Onam, sit amidst Dutch architecture and savour the feel of rare heritage.
Happy Onam at the Bolgatty Palace Hotel.
