Travellers' 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.

I stayed at the resort for a night with my family. It was a wonderful experience. There was so much to do at the resort itself esp the sunset cruise. Though we couldn't witness the sunset as the it was cloudy, we enjoyed the ride. Chinese fishing nets, administrative building and many more places were shown to us from the cruise. Their sea food restaurant 'Rice Boat" is extraordinary. Menu is out of the world and the overall experience is unparalleled. Cooking is customized and the taste is second to none. Overall we had an excellent stay. Thank you so much for the hospitality. We are coming back soon.
