We love the Taj Malabar: we think it is on a par with our other two most treasured destinations (the Savoy and Le Manoire; high praise). This is a unique experience which allows you to relax in a post colonial splendour, away from the maddening bustle of cochin city (Ernakulum) and near to the ancient attractions of fort cochin. The...

It is a cool place to relax with family doing nothing. Just enjoy the hospitality and nice smiling faces everywhere in this hotel. We have booked two sea view rooms and they are worth it. You can enjoy sea view with Cochin Port and dolphins as bonus in morning say 9-11 am. I enjoyed the infinity pool a lot
