Taj Malabar Kochi - Where Tradition meets Modernity
Taj Malabar hotel was built in 1934 as a hostel for those sailors of the many ships that reached the Cochin shore. Kochi attracted many foreign tradesmen and ‘tourists’ those days like today.
Taj is not just a brand; it’s an address every resident can feel proud of. Taj Malabar Cochin would be the ideal landscape for your wedding. Lovely lawn area, banquet hall, lounge bar, colonial style rooms, exclusive restaurants, and bay view help the claim.
Islands provide peace, serenity and security. An Island resort like Taj Malabar could be heavenly. Taj is situated in Willingdon Island which is considered as the safest place in these parts of the world. Protocol people prefer this resort as it is the home for the Southern Navel Command and Cochin Port Trust. The island also has good roads, lot of parking space and good air.
Taj is ideal for weddings and honeymoons. They have designer programs and amenities especially for couples. There are various packages worth the time and cost.
“Taj lets you experience things you don’t get to, everyday”. High tea at sea, breakfast cruise, BBQ on the yacht, village backwater cruise, fishing etc are some of the signature experiences Taj Malabar can offer.
An hour long sunset cruise in a luxury yacht into the Arabian sea, savouring the ‘high tea’, munching on a bountiful supply of snacks certainly promises a complete high living experience. Imagine, on your honeymoon, in the hues of a late sun, lounging on the deck with your soul mate, floating out towards the skyline.
