Wherever your travels lead, there are three letters that guarantee refinement and respite: TAJ. The Indian hotel and resort chain is expanding into major cities across the globe but Taj Malabar Resort & Spa, Cochin is a magnificent example of the brand in its own back yard.
Nestled in Cochin’s rustic Willingdon Island, the Taj resort blends old-world charm with world-class luxury services, allowing the feeling of being cut off from the rest of the world, peacefully floating out towards the horizon. Guestrooms and suites offer views of the harbour with the fishing nets in the distance, and sluggish ships traversing the waterways throughout the day. The Superior Rooms in the Tower Wing are comfortable and apt for the savvy business traveller, always on the move. With a view overlooking the port and the city, you can capture the true essence of this harbour city on a busy morning.
The Superior Rooms in Heritage Wing are a gateway into the old-world charm of Kerala’s rich history. Admire the interiors that carry a touch of Kerala’s traditional motifs, while simultaneously making use of the modern conveniences that ensure your stay is an enjoyable one.
If you’re more akin to the even finer things, the hotel’s Executive and Luxury Suites will gladly serve as your private chamber that caters to your needs by providing everything you need for a grand stay. These luxury rooms at Cochin are a masterpiece in their own right and your stay is guaranteed to be a memorable one.
Foodies will delight in the range of cuisines, with tempting flavours and spices at some of the best restaurants in Cochin. Famed for its seafood, Kerala has a lot to offer, and Taj prides itself in offering dishes to fully satiate your appetite. Choose from Pepper, Dolphins Point, Rice Boat and The Pavilion. The Mattancherry Bar, a lounge bar located in the lobby, adjacent to the lawn, is the ideal place to kick back with a libation during your stay.
Since you’re staying with Taj, make sure to unwind at Jiva Spa. Surrender your body, mind and soul to therapies that will ease you into a state of calm, with signature blend of unique massages to relax your muscles and take your stress away. One option, ‘Sammardana’, is a meticulous method of relieving the body of stress, mastered by skilled therapists through special training and particularly helpful for joint mobility.
Before you depart, ensure you make time for ‘High Tea At Sea’, an hour-long cruise on the Cinnamon Coast in a stylish luxury yacht accompanied by lovely high tea, cookies, muffins, sandwiches, and tea or coffee. The breathtaking views of the sea and the sunset leave you spellbound and enchanted by the beauty of Cochin.
