Hotelier Vikram Chatwal (of the Dream Hotel in NYC) opened his newest property this weekend, The Dream Cochin in Cochin, India. With 151 guest rooms, 24-hour Concierge, 3 restaurants and 2 lounges, the hotel has already been accredited as a 5-star property.  The opening celebration took place at the High Bar on the roof, where friends like Jade Jagger, Fern Mallis, Peter Davis, and Billy Farrell flew all the way from New York City to India to help Vikram celebrate.

The hotel opened with a cocktail party on Saturday by the rooftop pool and bar. In a recent interview Chatwal said that it was important for him that the hotel "stay in tune with the Dream concept born in New York and blend in the mysterious, exotic and relaxed personality of Kerala."
