....... if you wanna have a quiet dinner punctuated with some formal business discussions. Authentic fine-dining experience of cuisine from Kerala and Europe, so you get to choose. Lovely ambience in nature, very helpful staff with the menu.

The Malabar house is the perfect venue when arriving in cochin and exploring India. Wunderful hospitality, perfect service, very committed staff, delicious Indian and international food. It is centrally located but very quiet and offers a relaxed atmosphere. The reception provides excellent services incl. excursions and the restaurant is managed with great care. You would not expect to find such... More

From the initial welcome drink to giving us a leaving present (a large bag of local spices) we couldn't fault our stay at Malabar House. Even if they hadn't given us a free upgrade to their master suite this review would have been extremely positive. Room and facilities were excellent. we enjoyed our evening meals in the courtyard with fine... More

Stayed here with my husband and absolutely loved it. The hotel has a lovely, exotic ambience but the real treat was the food! The staff were thoroughly pleasant and only too happy to oblige. Booked this hotel because it had a certificate of excellence - which was very much deserved! Thanks for a great stay!

Arriving on an early flight from the UK we had to wait some time for our room to be ready; not that that detracts from the highly agreeable night's stay we had here. The location of this hotel is ideally suited for visits to Fort Cochin and the Chinese fishing nets as well as the old Jewish quarter and its... More

The ambience of Malabar House is just delightful & it's location is great. There are nice art works & furnishings throughout the property & in the rooms. The courtyard surrounded by trees is a great place to have a meal or listen to the music performed in the evening. There is a nice pool but as others have mentioned it... More

We arrived at 740am in the morning and were so appreciative that our room was ready. Reception staff very helpful and kind. Positives were free WI Fi, large room and lots of interesting art/ambience. However having travelled over India during this holiday and many times before, this turned out to be the most expensive hotel per night, including our stay... More

Arriving in Cochin from London the Malabar house is a wonderfully located retreat, with a wonderful restaurant! Chef Manoj has created a fabulous menu. As some reviewers have said its a bit of a surprise to be included as a relais & chateaux hotel but the rooms are very comfortable wonderful colour schemes and amazing art pieces. The bath in...

This beautiful house located in perfect spot close to a lot of tourist attractions. Also very well maintained. Food is delicious and various options available in the menu. We enjoyed everything about this hotel except service speed. It takes ages to get what you order. However nothing is wrong with presentation or taste. Ambiance particularly at night time worth to...

We rather came round to Malabar House by the end, and I will say that the manageress was hugely helpful and kind. This was the last place we stayed on a three week trip to India and as it was over £340 a night, (booked direct with the hotel) and a Relais and Chateaux Hotel, we were expecting something a...
