Taj Taj Malabar Resort & Spa, Cochin

Taj Malabar Resort & Spa, Cochin

5 Star Deluxe Hotel In Cochin near Willingdon Island

Looking out into the Arabian Sea, like a sentinel on the tip of Willingdon Island, and in the middle of everything Cochin is this waterfront classic, the Taj Malabar. The city’s iconic address is the first port of call for global travellers seeking God’s own country with a story that traces back to 1935 and runs parallel to the rise of Kerala as a global destination. For long it has been its most distinguished ambassador in international markets.  

Today, in 2024, a timeless tale begins anew. Embracing classic revivalism, and following a meticulous year-long restoration, the venerable 95-year-old Taj Malabar returns to renew its classic charm. In the quiet port neighbourhood, it is all the buzz, with its mint-fresh renovation and new experiences. What remains unchanged though is the legendary service. The hotel embodies the city’s syncretic character shaped by multicultural heritage, imperial influences, and trading culture. While maritime architecture hearkens to the original foundation of the resort, textiles play an integral part in narrating the local with a mindful play of textures, colours and motifs. Within, earthy tones of rattan and preserved woodwork exude a timelessness. A stroll within the resort’s premises unearths murals and objects d’art created by local artisans using traditional art forms of coir craft, weaving, and pottery.

Staying in is as much of a delight. Rooms and suites done up in meticulous detail, offer stunning waterfront views. With bay windows, handpicked accessories and the newly created family suites, this is made for extended stays. Its signature restaurants return in a new avatar, staying true to their reputation and the flavours of the region. Be it the coastal classics at the iconic Rice Boat, or global flavours and Haute regional cuisine at Pepper, the All-Day-Dining or the oriental experience at The Pavilion. And of course, then, all roads lead to the haute social spot, the Mattancherry Bar. For wellness, Taj Malabar Resort & Spa offers a quiet neighbourhood, an infinity pool, calm backwaters, signature Ayurveda treatments and ancient therapies.

Step out and you are 15 minutes from everything that is Cochin, be it the artful precincts of Fort Kochi and Mattancherry or the contemporary commerce of Ernakulam. Taj Malabar is probably the most coveted address.  Sunset boat rides, bespoke dining experiences, backwater private yacht cruises, a spice garden tour, are select experiences that promise to unravel the story of Cochin to Kochi.

Living up to a century-old promise, between a majestic past and a renewed future, the Taj Malabar stands inimitable as ever.
