Free afternoon tea and evening cruise on the backwaters Great food in whichever restaurant you eat in Comfortable rooms Great spa facilities Lovely pool area overlooking the backwaters
A remarkable hotel, perfectly situated with an astonishingly beautiful view. Service is impeccable. Pool area is a gem of design and comfort. Complimentary afternoon tea is a delight. Travel and tour services personnel are excellent.
Isolated location. Free WiFi barely works.
Food, staff, free HIGHCT AT 5 PM...GAMES TO PLAY.
The staff and service were the best we've ever experienced. The location, aesthetics, food - there was nothing I really could fault.
You need to be willing to be able to appreciate the isolated location - of course, this means blissful peace!!
The staff were superb,also we loved the small touches they provided. like a free afternoon tea,cakes available near the restaurants to help yourself beautiful cold drinks in the foyer.The bar and lounge area is stunning.Free cruise on the river, cultural show, superb spa and pool area.The restaurants are excellent and the food a delight.
The location its difficult to get to from the Airport.The travel desk is so expensive,the hotel quoted me 800 rupees to take a ride in their boat to Fort Kochi I walked down the road and caught the local ferry for 4 rupees.To be fair the front desk did advise me of the ferry and provided me with a timetable.
The decor and furnishing, the food, the staff, and being partly surrounded by very busy waterways.
Not liking a/c to sleep by, I would have liked mosquito mesh on the windows.
The holiday was amazing because of the Taj stay! The staff were helpful, courteous and very, very receptive! The whole experience was beyond our expectations.
Staff were excellent. Really well trained and super helpful. The food in the buffet was extensive and well executed.The pool was clean, we'll managed and always had plenty of fresh towels and cold water. Pool bar was a bonus.
The only thing that I feel could be improved on is the price of drinks, (alcoholic). They were ludicrously expensive.
Location - short ferry trip to mainland Cochin or Fort Cochin; also a place to relax from the chaos of the main city decor of rooms views amazing infinity pool
Checked in at 12 and my room wasnt ready, was told to wait '15 minutes' which ended up being 45min, was given an upgrade to compensate though
Excellent staff with a perfect manner. Choice and variety of food. Well appointed room with seaview.
The service was excellent. I enjoyed the dinning experience at the Rice Boat and during the Christmas Eve dinner. Service at the Spa was also excellent. My wife and I enjoyed the massage very much. All staff were attentive towards us and all guests.
You should have cleared some of the debris in the sea infront of the hotel.
Had a great meal experience @rice boat especially due to the attentiveness of the service staff; even the thai restaurant and coffee shop were good. Overall great staff both courteous and well informed
Some of the facility at the spa were not working on all 3 days of the stay which was a bummer.
We fully appreciate the hospitality and care provided by staff at all levels at Taj Malabar. The facilities, food, ambience are excellent. Good facility for children's activities. Evening cruise was well arranged.
Such a personalised experience- the staff were wonderful
Great Hospitality Choices in Cuisine Decor/Theme was great
The hotel was five star staff were ecellent and the food five star and value for money
Not enough entertainment in the evening a little to quiet for our likeing and no where to go outside the hotel if you fancied a walk
My husband and I had our honeymoon here last year and enjoyed so much we came back for our anniversary this year on arrival we had a lovely cake in our room to celebrate our anniversary which was a wonderful surprise we were booked in for 1 week after a couple of days we were moved to a suite room we were so touched by the thoughtfulness of Sunil we cannot thank him and your team enough nothing is any trouble for Sunil and it was lovely he remembered us from last year as having so many guests at your hotel this is a unexpected surprise we look forward to our next stay with you and hope that Sunil will still be with you what a wonderful member of your team he truly is thank you to Sunil and mannish in the bar who always has a smile on his face and Alex and George in the breakfast restaurant
there is nothing to dislike this really is a beautiful place to relax
Location was amazing. Good food and friendly staff especially the lady who took us to our room ( I don't remember her name) the door man was also super polite.. Very polite and friendly staff
A bit of a walk to the ferry which goes to fort Cochin..a shuttle service from the hotel would have Been a better way rather than walking to the jety..
Treated like royalty from start to finish, it was a fantastic a very memorable stay.
I liked the warmth of the staff andtheir attenattention to detail. Was very happy to see the cake they left us for our anniversary. That was a nice touch.
Didnt like the location of the hotel
Wifi should be free
Loved it, very comfortable and relaxing, staff were all very attentive, pool was gorgeous, liked all the extras, like the boat trip, tea time etc.
Taxi to airport total rip off, just booked through separate company in the end though, also location is a bit awkward.
The fantastic bed The view The entire colonial style atmosphere The attentive staff Every wish you could have read off your lips Simply everything!
The humid feel in the room - due to the fact that the weather was humid and the aircon didn't quite manage to clear it without setting it to a freezing temperature.
Comfort Facilities Style
Live music at afternoon tea and at the bar in the evening
Being on the Backwaters and the Mouth of the sea makes it a very special hotel with very nice view. The best thing in the hotel is the friendliness, kindness and helpfulness of all the staff. Comfortable bedrooms. Excellent breakfast. Pleasant afternoon tea followed by an evening cruise.
