Absolutely stunning place: beautiful and comfortable rooms, lovely, impeccable and friendly service and gorgeous surroundings. Lovely bar to have a drink and restaurant for seafood - all of which we enjoyed very much. The Ayurvedic treatment was deeply relaxing. As all boutique hotels, a little pricey compared to what you get at a five star hotel for the same price.... More

From the moment we walked in the front door we were greatly with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The garden suite was lovely and we were able to step out of the door into the pool. We had two meals in the hotel which were both delicious. Highly recommend!

I spent two nights at the hotel in a garden suite. The room was clean and freshly painted. Our package had breakfast included. The small pool in the courtyard was very nice. The breakfast was adequate but not fantastic. We had dinner in the restaurant and the menu catered for western tastes also. Overall our stay was a good one.

My girlfriend treated me to two nights in Malabar house over my birthday whilst we were traveling Kerala. We had a perfect weekend in the trendy hotel and enjoyed bathing in the pool. Malabar house was relaxing, efficient, and everything was of the highest standard.
