Situated on Willingdon Island with a magnificent view of Cochin harbour, Taj - Malabar Resort & Spa is a fine balance between yesterday and tomorrow. Our lobby is a unique mix of chic and classic. The heritage ...More wing, built in 1935, reflect the inherent beauty of Cochin. And the tower wing houses newly renovated guestroom suites, each a delicate mix of the classic with the contemporary.

Lovely hotel! Like an oasis in India. Delightful and helpful staff! Be sure to take the complimentary boat ride. It was a sunset backwater ride-wonderful! Grounds are beautiful so be sure to enjoy the serenity of being on the island!

Just adding to what other travelers have already replied earlier....not close to this this hotel but there are many other sea beaches in Kerala and you can plan to visit/stay there during your trip.
