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...

We stayed here in April 2016 for 2 days. Getting to the resort was not a problem. Check in was quick. There are plenty of space for parking. We were 4 couples along with kids. In each building, there are 4 big spacious rooms - 2 in the ground and 2 in the first floor. Rooms were clean and tasteful.... More

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

Unlike some previous reviewers, I really loved this place. Its in a very quiet location with miles of unspoilt beach fringed with palms and is just perfect if one really wants to get away from it all and relax. The rooms were lovely and spacious with a small dressing area and plenty of cupboards and drawers. I do like an... More
