We chose Vivanta By Taj for our corporate outing initially but due to unavailability of rooms there, we decided to go for Malabar Resort. And I am glad that we didn't get booking in Taj because Malabar turned out to be the best destinations as per our requirements. They have only 16 rooms, maybe because they want to ensure quality...

This is a very good property having personal beach. The rooms and interiors are also very good. The problem starts if you are a vegetarian. Because the chef of the resort doesn't believe in anything vegetarian and he doesn't even check how many guests will eat which type of food. He doesn't have even a sense that veg and non... More
