Vivanta by Taj–Malabar


  • Unmatched water views of the harbors and of frigates going by
  • Spacious rooms and great atmosphere in the public spaces
  • Fantastic restaurants that are some of the best in Kerala


  • Isolated on an island with little to do that's far from city landmarks
  • The heritage rooms, which are the ones to get and the reason for staying here, aren't cheap

Fodor's Review

Isolated at the tip of Willingdon Island, this grand hotel offers a heritage sensibility and style, and absolute luxury, including simply excellent dining experiences. The lobby has a stunning carved-wood ceiling and a similarly styled bar with a harbor view. The Heritage Wing dates to 1935, and its rooms are resplendant with wood floors and Kerala-style furnishings. The newer, less expensive Tower Wing reflects a similarly elegant but more modern style, with the addition of large, windowed bathrooms, so you can shower with a sea view or room view. The top-notch ayurvedic spa is worth a visit.
