This is a one of the best Taj locations that you would ever get. The travel time from the airport would exceed 90 minutes.
I was travelling on business and usually stay at the Taj properties. I stayed here for a single night.So the comparison for this property was with the other Taj properties in other cities.
Great location.Rooms were a little small though.
The breakfast was my only bitter experience here. Limited options and the made to order was delayed.

where should I start from??
Once you are here, forget about the rest of world. Because TAJ does it again. Being of the best hotels of Kochi, Taj Malabar is astounding in all terms. What else does anyone want?
Think of anything you expect from a hotel, this one comes up with many more, beyond your imaginations.
Being located in Willingdon Island, the view of the cochin harbour is awesome and the don't forget the sunset. Services are not at all a question, you'll get the best.
Do visit this place if you are on leisure trip, because you need to cherish your moments at Taj Malabar.

Room Tip: Do visit this place, nothing else.

No prize for guessing Taj malabar is one of the best hotel in Cochin. situated very close to cochin port. I have been to cochin more than 10 times and I have stayed at different hotels in cochin especially in MG road. None of the hotel will come closer to Taj Malabar hotel.

The restaurant is very good. The hospitality is excellent, The good was very yummy. Truly an impeccable hotel. If you are planning your trip for cochin then better stay at TAJ MALABAR

This was a nice location & had a very refreshing hotel. I will rate this 5star category . The staff is young , helpful and full of enthusiasm. This is a nice hotel and good for relaxing trips . The restaurants are excellent , specially breakfast was great. We had nice boat rides & the sea facing rooms were great. The rooms were good & the usual Vivanta standards. Visiting the SPA during the visit & a dip at teh infinity pool is a must.

Room Tip: A Sea Facing room will be very nice ..very relaxing

Adjescent to the Port , night and day you will see the cargo ships pass by. Sitting next to the sea port and watching these huge vessels pass.. memorable experience.


Food is extraordinary , multiple options to choose from .Spent 3 days there and the consistancy was commendable. Rooms are good as its a heritage hotel . Upkeep is to standards that are above acceptable. Nothing Extraordinary.

Several sight seeing options like taking a public ferry , or a boat through taj . Area surrounding is green and quite serene. Long time from the airport though .... but the welcome drink is hmmmmmmmmmm....... too good :)

Room Tip: Overlooking the port, higher floor the better
