Casino Group of Hotels, Kerala

Casino Group of Hotels do their best to ensure that the spirit Marari Beach Resortfinds authentic expression with their cuisine, service and accommodations. This is what makes a holiday with Casino unique, unlike any other. International, yet rooted in local culture. Exciting, yet in perfect harmony with the wind, sea and land around Casino.

The Casino Group of hotels was founded by Dominic Joseph Kuruvinakunnel on the harbour island of Willingdon, in Cochin, Kerala. What started out in 1957 as the Casino Restaurant, catering to the dock workers and commuters of Willingdon Island, evolved into the familiar Casino Hotel.
