My best stay during this pandemic ”

It's a no brainer when you choose any of the Taj properties. This was my first trip to kerela, though we thought of catching up with two of our old friends for sometime, the stay planned was more to relax and unwind. We booked ourselves in the heritage side of building and right from the check in.to.our rooms was all smooth. To.our surprise we were upgraded to.their Bay view suite which was the cherry on.the top.

The location of the hotel is just fab too as it is a stone throw away from the sea. They also have an infinity pool which was great.

under the guise of heritgae they are thruting a run down property , We expected a certain level of quality but were disappointed how ill maintained the rooms were, broken latches, door frames, creaky furniture. The breakfast is really pathetic for a Taj property. I would think twice before booking another room with this brand, its about time to not give into these high profile brands when they have no accountability.

Amazing service, incredible views, and pitch-perfect hotel!

from the moment you walk in, the staff at vivanta by taj - malabar, is incredibly helpful. they seem to know what you want, even before you know what it is! from making the check-in process smooth to just making every part of your stay enjoyable, they are always ready to help. sure, the place is more expensive than others, but it is completely worth the splurge. the afternoon tea with a view of the arabian sea, with the paper lanterns delicately adding to the mood (and making you look good in the process), was just delightful. the harbor cruise was fun, and a must so you can see the fishing nets in action at sunset. the food is good, but they definitely tone down the spices on the indian dishes. so, if you're into spicy, you might want to say something about that. they surely would accommodate the request. the spa offers an array of services, but again, as with the food, they seem to have a lighter touch. no worries, vivanta spa employees, we can take the real thing! all in all, a fantastic experience we would recommend to everyone!

A Superb Hotel, Service Impecable!”

Lobby Appointments/Restaurants and Duty Manager Sunil Panicker was one of the most professional and personable I have ever met. He ensured we were cared for every minute of our stay. Thanks Sunil !

What a beautiful hotel...They provide the most invredible service from the minute you arrive. This was a great end to our 3 week trip around India. The restaurants are fantastic and the quality of beverages in the lobby bar is second to none. It was never a priblem for the hotel staff to arrange cars to take us to and from the the ferry port to Old Kochi. The afternoon tea sercice at 1730 hrs daily was magical, followed by a complimentary harbour cruise for all hotel patrons. Its these small things that make such a differece. Thanks Taj Malabar...see you very soon !!
