Travelers' Choice
Situated on Willingdon Island with a magnificent view of Cochin harbour, Taj - Malabar Resort & Spa is a fine balance between yesterday and tomorrow. Our lobby is a unique mix of chic and classic. The heritage wing, built in 1935, reflect the inherent beauty of Cochin. And the tower wing houses newly renovated guestroom suites, each a delicate mix of the classic with the contemporary.

We stayed here a night as a family and thoroughly enjoyed our time and their hospitality. The hotel is well maintained and has all the amenities that you need for a leisure trip. Right from the reception (Soby) to the restaurant ( Alex, Uday, Dinesh), everyone was friendly and ready to pamper the guests. The sunset cruise was spectacular. My 7-year-old son said, "This is the best hotel stay experience and I feel like I’m the king living like a royal". I would definitely go back without a second thought and wish them all the very best.

The Good: - Staff are extremely helpful & courteous - They have an evening tea arrangement followed by a sunset cruise - which I thought was very nice touch & gets people moving around - The room was spacious, well lit, well maintained - The hotel has a refreshing scent - which is important - Everything in the room was well maintained, clean and comfortable - The shower & the tub were a hit with the family - The food was great Areas where I thought Taj can improve - Parking is a bit of a mess - parking spots are not easily available, and sometimes results in queues - the valet helps, but still feels a bit out of order - The reception area is small & can get crowded fast - especially since there is a fixed time check-in & check out - it is sure to build up a crowd during those times - The 5pm tea area - which is served outside the Pepper restaurant has a "Crow" problem & all the seats will have crow droppings. We had to hunt around for a chair to sit on

We celebrated my dad's 60th birthday at the property. All of us had a great time. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodated us in every way possible. Have a few bits of feedback that may help improve the experience. 1. The fitness center - the equipment is not up to the mark. Some of it is broken and the others partly functional. The dumbbells are in bad shape & the multigym was not fully functional. You could also add some more equipment for eg a foam roller, skipping rope, resistance bands to name a few. 2. The rooms could need some modernization. The electrical system is well behind modern Taj hotels. There was no usable electrical socket on one side of the bed. The electrical socket near the study table would lose power in someone had left the room having taken the keycard. The devices that are left to charge are found in an uncharged state because of this. 3. The IRD menu and the restaurant a-la-carte menu could use an upgrade. More vegetarian options and more options in general. 4. The bar offers a lot of wine options but unfortunately most of them were out of stock. Also, the wine pricing needs to be relooked into. It is quite high compared to other Taj properties ive experienced. 5. The bathroom also needs a redo. The vanity mirror is in a weird location. The flush does not work as intended.
