Info : Malabar House
This Dutch colonial style boutique heritage hotel in Fort Cochin is run by Malabar Escapes, a big player on the Kerala hospitality scene, well known for its great accommodation throughout the region. The history surrounding the building spans several centuries, and ownership has passed through the hands of tea traders, bankers, and spice traders along the way. Nowadays, it’s a sophisticated designer boutique hotel with rooms and suites scattered around a gorgeous central courtyard.
In lovely Cochin, you can stroll through the Jewish quarter, view the Chinese fishing nets, poke through antique markets, visit the broad and beautiful Lake Vembanad, and begin or end a trip through the Kerala Backwaters. On-site, take a dip in the charming pool, grab a free bike and amble through the town, book an Ayurvedic treatment, and sample world-class seafood at the famous Malabar Junction restaurant.
There are 17 rooms and suites in total, classic, tasteful, and uniquely decorated in a style that pays tribute to the area’s southern Indian heritage with exquisite antique furniture. Our favourites would have to be the five roof garden suites: they feature a spacious outdoor seating area, perfect for relaxation.
Malabar House wins points for its central location (everything is within walking distance), its wonderful ambience, and exquisite seafood dining.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
