This is simply a superb hotel. To me, there are a few reasons to give a hotel 5 stars; the Taj Malabar qualifies on all levels. First: Location. The Taj Malabar has a fabulous location on the tip of Willingdon Island. Willingdon Island is peaceful, quiet, and the Taj's location allows you to experience Kochi sunsets at their best. Plus...
