About the Accommodation.
Eden Garden, Kochi: Eden Garden is a character oriented family run homestay/ hotel. It is an old fashioned small mansion that we have used for numerous travellers in the past. Majority of them have been very satisfied with their stay in Kochi. Many of them have stated how much they enjoyed the cuisine at Eden Garden during their stay. Hence, we decided to team with Judith at Eden Garden to provide a chance for our guests to learn cullinary skills from her. There is no better way of enjoying the food than watching the demonstration of the food being cooked and having it for lunch or dinner. She is available for parting her skills in the Indian summer season which is also the best time for enjoying the benefits of Ayurveda.
