Business Hotel in Kochi Lights Up the Lives of Children During Diwali

The Courtyard Kochi Airport Celebrates the Festival of Lights With a Special Visit to Local Orphanage

KERALA, INDIA--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2013) - When it comes to celebrating holidays, nobody does it quite as well as children who embrace all the customs and ceremonials with unrestrained delight. So when India's five-day Hindu festival, Diwali, approached, the Courtyard Kochi Airport decided to combine the joy of giving back with the joy of celebrating among children in one unforgettable evening.

On 1 November 2013, more than 30 associates from the hotel surprised the children of the Emmanuel Bhavan orphanage in Nedumbassery with an unexpected visit. They brought firecrackers to celebrate the festival of lights, and after the excitement of fireworks, playing and plenty of laughs, the hotel staff distributed treats to all the children. Not only was the event memorable for everyone involved, it also underscored the property's commitment to Marriott's Spirit to Serve philosophy.

Just as the local community experiences the beneficial outreach of the hotel's dedicated staff, so too do guests of these hotel suites in Kochi enjoy top-notch service and amenities. The 100 guest rooms and seven suites offer complimentary high-speed Internet as well as spacious accommodations with large desks, ergonomic chairs and 40-inch LED televisions. The four-star hotel also ensures guests can satisfy any gastronomic craving. Its 24-hour American café offers to-go options, while the internationally-inspired MoMo Café welcomes guests for more leisurely dining in Kochi.

Located less than a mile from the Cochin International Airport, the hotel is ideally situated for business travellers as well. The property offers state-of-the-art meeting facilities in Kochi, India with two event rooms that span 1,496 square feet and comfortably accommodate small- to medium-size groups.
