Still remains a wonderful hotel, despite the fact that in my opinion the hotel needs to uplift the 'tired look.' Staff are truly impeccable. Wonderful and warm service. Great food and ambience and breathtaking sunsets.

Great place to stay with family, good food and good staff. Because of some license issue there is no alcohol available in this hotel. Apart from that it has a great view of the cochin harbour, you can see ships passing in the bay.

Situated on Willingdon Island with a magnificent view of Cochin harbour, Vivanta by Taj - Malabar is a fine balance between yesterday and tomorrow. Our lobby is a unique mix of chic and classic.
