Giving a big thrust to Kerala’s stakeholder-friendly “Keravan Kerala” initiative, the hospitality giant CGH Earth has announced its plans to set up a string of 10 caravan parks across the state. The first of the set will come up at Marayoor, famed for its panoramic settings in the high range Idukki district.
After a meeting with Tourism Minister Mr. P. A. Mohamed Riyas in Thiruvananthapuram to share its plans, CGH Earth’s Director Mr. Michael Dominic said the group will be developing the caravan parks in an environment-friendly manner as laid down by the government in its Caravan Tourism Policy.
“It is heartening that a major hospitality sector player from Kerala itself has come forward with plans to create a number of caravan parks, in a sustainable manner and without disturbing the natural surroundings of the locale,” the Minister said.
Mr. Dominic said the caravan parks will be set up by complying with CGH Earth’s core values of caring for the environment and working with local communities.
The caravan park at Marayoor will be coming up on a five-acre site against the backdrop of a tea plantation. To start with, it will have space for five caravans to park at a time. The park will have an activity area, accommodation and restrooms for drivers, restaurants, and all other requirements for the comfortable stay of guests.
