About the resort
Kochi is rightly known as the 'Getaway to Kerala', with its natural beauty and rich heritage on display while its close proximity to the ocean also gives it the apt title of the 'Queen of the Arabian Sea'. The history and development of Kochi bears marks of the Arab, British, Dutch, Portuguese and especially the Chinese influence. Sitting in the company of this cultural mélange is Olive Downtown, your best bet to enjoy Kochi to the fullest. Placed on Kadavanthra Junction, the hotel fulfils the exceeding expectations of guests with its first-class services and amenities. Its ideal location puts you just minutes away from the enchanting Southern life. Only a few kilometres away is Asia’s largest shopping complex - LuLu Mall - where you can shop, eat and stroll around with your loved ones. When you need to energise yourself, you can head to the in-house coffee shop Arena or walk into the multi-cuisine restaurants of Olive Downtown resort in Cochin & enjoy sumptuous meals.
We offer a wide range of room types such as Deluxe Rooms, Executive Rooms and Suites, Royal Suites and Olive Legacy Suites, as per your choice.
Kochiites pride over their rich cuisine, which is influenced by distinct cultures from around the world. Banana forms an integral part of Kochi cuisine, especially in delicacies like Pazham Pori, Kurukku Kalan and crispy chips. Malabar Prawn Curry is a delicious blend of local spices that will please your taste buds. The other famous dishes of Kerala are the Fish Biryani and Kerala Fried Prawns. For the vegetarians, Kerala’s veggie delights include Kadala Curry - a spicy and delicious black chickpeas curry, Mambazha Pulissery - a traditional sour and sweet ripe mango curry, served with rice, and the unending range of Dosas. As you see, there’s something to suit every palate. And needless to say, Olive Downtown is the ideal destination to relish all of these. With numerous cultural influences in play, Kochi celebrates countless festivals throughout the year. While Onam is the biggest and the most auspicious festival, Christmas and New Year’s Eve are also celebrated with the same excitement and zeal.

Here Are a Few Reviews on Olive Downtown Resort by Club Mahindra Members:
My family and I really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The staffs were so courteous and helpful. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The breakfast spread was filled with varieties of wonderful food. Excellent services. Wonderful staffs!
Stayed at Olive Downtown just for one night before our trip to Alleppey. Great stay, good food and excellent hospitality. The rooms were neat and clean. Being a city hotel, the view was not a concern, but awaiting us was a panoramic view of Cochin city. Believe me you would be fall in love with this place when you see the view from the poolside at night. It wouldn't be justice on my part of i don't mention about the food i had here. The breakfast at Olivia is a treat. We had gone out for Lunch and in the evening tried their coffee shop on the ground level. Special mention for the staff too. Will be back definitely.
I had stayed in this hotel for 2 days with my family and I am really happy by the service.i wish the hotel gets the bar licence as soon as possible.Good breakfast and excellent staff. It was a good variety of pastry in there coffee shop.They have a very nice masala tea.
It was the first time at Cochin and was not a prepared visit. We travelled with an extra person too yet the hotel accommodated without any fuss. We had a guest manager who took care of the site seeing. Understanding our time constraints, Mr. Jenny made last minute arrangements for a local sightseeing, Alleppey trip the next day and helped us with a late checkout time. He constantly kept checking about our stay and comfort. He planned it very economical too. He had arranged for very good drivers who knew our language. He kept a watch on our train timings and helped us to board it on time easily. We were happy the way we were treated. Thank you.
It's located in Ernakulam district 20 mins drive to Marine Drive and 30 mins drive to Fort Kochi. Hotel rooms are very modern and good. Food and restaurants are nice. Swimming pool and gym are on the top floor, small but clean. Had a good experience staying at the hotel.
