Situated on a peaceful green in the heart of historical Fort Cochin, Malabar House is a fascinating and sophisticated hotel housed in a pretty, old Dutch colonial mansion which is ideally located close to many of the historic sights of Cochin. The interiors are an inspired mix of local furniture and antiques, combined with modern designs and vibrant colour schemes
Fine dining here is very special; Malabar Junction, the gourmet restaurant, combines the freshest South Indian and Mediterranean ingredients and has some of the best seafood in the region. The delicious menu offers western dishes such as Roasted pumpkin & parmesan risotto alongside Indian flavours such as Tiger prawns in mango Moilly. For more casual fare the wine lounge, Divine, is innovative in celebrating the emergence of Indian wines and has a list showcasing some of the best the country has to offer. Together with delicious tapas or a special degustation menu it is a perfect place to dine from lunchtime until late.
Malabar House is perfectly situated to explore the history and culture of old Cochin, with the famous Chinese Fishing nets only minutes away. Take a boat ride in the harbour, do a historic walk or ride a bicycle around the sights of the town. Return to the hotel and perhaps take part in a cookery lesson or enjoy classical music or a dance performance. Tired bodies and souls can be rejuvenated by spending time enjoying an Ayurvedic massage.
Malabar House has 17 rooms with 11 deluxe rooms on the ground floor, 5 garden suites on the 1st floor and the duplex Malabar Suite. They all differ from each other in shape and size, with some having their own balcony while others share a veranda. None is alike but they are all stylish, colourful and comfortable.
