Malabar House, Cochin


A delightful and historic Relais & Chateau hotel in the heart of Cochin.

For a true sense of place but a setting the perfect distance away from the hectic heart of the city, Cochin’s Malabar House can’t be beaten. With its Relais & Chateau status you know the service is going to be attentive, the cuisine outstanding and the style unique. The hotel reflects the city’s history with distinctly colonial buildings and North African-inspired interiors (although with a modern twist) and there is a charming courtyard where you will find the bijou swimming pool. There’s also the ayervedic Purespa which specialises in a range of treatments that has emerged from an unlikely source – the ancient Keralan martial art of kalaripayattu.

The hotel quite rightly prides itself on its culinary offerings. At The Malabar Junction at Malabar House, which is open for lunch and dinner, guests can enjoy both regional and Mediterranean cuisine created using fresh and largely organic produce which is sourced as locally as possible. Each evening, as guests dine under the stars in the courtyard, there are live performances of carnatic music.

The rooms and suites are wonderfully vibrant in style. The ground-floor Deluxe Rooms feature either a double beds or twin bed. We recommend an upgrade to one of the the beautiful Roof Garden Suites which are located on the first floor. Not only are they more spacious, they also feature their own terrace. For the ultimate in space and luxury, opt for the duplex Malabar Suite which features a living room on the lower floor and a bedroom and terrace on the upper floor.
