Vivanta by Taj - Malabar

Willingdon Island, Kerala, 682009, India
TEL: 91-484-664-3000
Taj's latest brand, Vivanta (unveiled in 2010) stands for laid-back luxury, as reflected by this South Indian retreat, perched comfortably on Lake Kochi. Despite their Victorian decor, the 96 rooms include a range of seamlessly integrated tech amenities, ranging from 32" LCD televisions and ergonomically-designed work desks to dual massage showerheads, appealing to business and leisure travelers alike. The hotel's Jiva Spa offers an extensive list of Ayurveda treatments, including a blissful magnolia, lavender, and jasmine facial, while the traditional Rice Boat restaurant--housed under an authentic cane roof and featuring views of colonial Cochin warehouses --serves freshly caught Keralan bounty like snapper, soft-shell crab, and tiger prawns.

Room to Book:

Premier Indulgence rooms for sweeping vistas of the fiery, Malabar Coast sunset.

Insider Tip:

Arrange a meal on Cinnamon Coast, the hotel's very own luxury yacht, where you'll be served by a personal valet.
