Hotel Rockholm crowns a rock that reaches
out to the sea over a lovely cove, where the towering lighthouse stands
sentinel surveying all with its sweeping beams in the night.
Rockholm is owned and managed by a traditional Anglo Indian family which
can trace its roots back to several generations. Today Rockholm bears a
delightful ambience of both the East and West.
The blend of comfort, tranquility and sheer good taste which one comes
across at Rockholm has been perfected with the deep and rare knowledge of
two great cultures. At Rockholm, one can say that the twain have finally
met. The personnel at the hotel have been around for a long time and show
a friendliness and caring that is found only in old family retainers.
During the day, the sun kissed beaches invite you to either take a long
stroll or just be plain lazy and bask in the sun under shady palm trees or
beach umbrellas. The inviting waters of the blue sea beckon you to take a
swim and later dry off in the sun, gifting yourself a glorious tan with
little or no effort.
With the bobbing lights of the fishing boats in the distance and the
western sky still showing crimson where the sun went down, the open air
seafront restaurant sets the ideal stage to feel the night and calm
descend upon earth. Nothing breaks the spell except a rare clink of
crystal or a peal of laughter. The haunting music of the sea below,
punctuated by the vast sweeps of beams from the lighthouse provides the
backdrop for the evening. Needless to say, it is usually the memory of an
evening at the open air restaurant that many carry back home.
A longtime favourite of the international tourist, Rockholm can proudly claim that it spends little money on advertising. It usually takes a few hours for a routine guest to turn into a life long patron and the few good words they speak back home bring new seekers of leisure built on a rock.
