Taj Malabar Resort & Spa


A luxury hotel with serene views overlooking the backwaters and Cochin harbour

Situated on Willingdon Island, the Taj Malabar has gorgeous views overlooking Cochin harbour and the beautiful backwaters of Kerala. A great base for those wanting to explore the area, it seamlessly combines old-world elegance with modern day convenience. You can make the most of the hotel's great facilities available; lounge by the scenic swimming pool, take a complimentary sunset cruise on the backwaters, or venture to the spa to enjoy therapies and treatments specially curated to help detox and rejuvenate. Signature experiences include the Jivaniya muscle relieving treatment, and Pehlwan Malish, a traditional massage normally favoured by Indian wrestlers.

A choice of dining options at the hotel includes classic Eastern and Western comfort food at The Pepper and delicious oriental dishes at The Pavilion, one of the only authentic Thai restaurants in Kerala. For exotic seafood, head to the Rice Boat restaurant, where in an incredibly unique setting of a stationary rice boat, you'll enjoy a delicious menu of authentically cooked seafood, accompanied by exquisite views overlooking the backwaters and historic Mattancherry.
