Introduction

CGH Earth (CGH), formerly the Casino Group of Hotels, began their operations in 1957 as a restaurant catering to the dock workers and commuters of Willingdon Island, Kochi (Kerala).

The group grew gradually, setting up seven resorts - Coconut Lagoon, Spice Village, The Marari Beach, The Brunton Boatyard, Spice Coast Cruises, Bangaram Island Resort, and the Casino Hotel - in Kerala and Lakshwadeep.

The group specialized in resorts that offered a local flavor, environmental sensitivity, and an original and quality experience as its USP. In line with their USP, each property of CGH offered a different environment, giving the tourists varied experiences at each resort...

2. What were the various services offered by CGH resorts in addition to the local ambience and cuisine, which were in line with the locational preferences targeting specific tourist segments?
