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.

Everything is exceptional, great rooms great ambiance , i specially recommend the food at Taj Malabar it is a celebration of flavors. From local seafood to global delicacies, each dish is crafted with finesse. Don’t miss the culinary journey at The Rice Boat, where seafood reigns supreme.

The place is truly awesome. One of the finest properties in Kerala and it definitely has the South Malabar style and vibe in the interiors. Its located at the edge of the Wellington Island cost and overlooks the Kochi seaport. The staff is friendly and they ensure the stay is extremely comfortable. One of the most beautiful properties I have visited and I'd like to again mention about the authentic Malabar feel. It's extremely good.

The resort is under renovation and is operating at minimal infrastructural facilities. Even the alternative arrangements were way below par for the amount paid, especially considering there are other better competitive hotel chain options available. The only saving grace was the courteous staff. The overall experience was terrible and hope to have a better experience in future.

Outstanding customer service. The hotel wad under renovation but the team made up for it with their excellent service and can do attitude. We were truly spoilt. Sobi at the front desk, Rajeev at Rice Boat and Anand at the coffee shop were some of the stars. Can't wait to go back when they reopen.

Had a very sweet stay at Taj Malabar. They upgraded our room to suite. The boat ride was very safe and relaxing. The food was very delicious. The ambience was also very calming. Unfortunately some facilities were under maintenance. However overall we enjoyed a lot.
