Chittoor Kottaram
South India

In the quiet backwaters of Kerala a King´s mansion getaway awaits you. Full of history and heritage, the Chittoor Kottaram sits a short boat ride away from mainland Kochi, with its wooden rooftops and 18th century architecture that will take you back in time. The Raja of Cochin built a temple for his family and himself to visit and soon after built the Chittoor Kottaram right next to the temple so he could come and stay when he pleased.

The Chittoor Kottaram is an ideal destination for couples looking for quiet and peace. The architecture is a mix between colonial influences and traditional Keral style. Explore the beautiful green gardens, try the homely food and enjoy the serenity of the backwaters. Keralan way of life highlights subtleness and discreetness, which are reflected in this historic mansion.

Client Testimonials

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
