Pleasant, but not amazing

Food and Staff
A very pleasant stay, but overall the hotel felt a little tired, esp. the room decor. Restaurant was good and nice to see a mix of Western and local visitors filling up the tables. Location is slightly out of the way, but once you work out the local ferry system - cheap, reliable - then Willingdon Island feels less remote.

Enjoyable Stay

Quiet location, Friendly staff, Nice view
The hotel is in a quiet location away from the city centre. Nice view of the sea and sunset. Free evening tea, snacks and boat cruise for all guests. Peaceful setting with staff to attend to all your needs. Will come back again.

We were looking forward to our stay after our first stay after 2 years gap and which was wonderful. Wonderful because of the "people" there. It was so homely and people were attentive and courteous. Not this time. Arriving in the wee hours of the night we were ushered in a room overlooking the drive way in the old building. I had requested for a room with a big bed but For the first time in our 47 years of being together and travelling around so much we had to sleep in separate beds. There was dust on the tables and Lamps. somehow it did not work for us.

Fantastic Birthday Weekend

The Location, the service and the lovely rooms!
This was probably one of the best weekends we have experienced! We had booked 4 Sea facing twin rooms and 1 suite but upon arrival, were told that one room had been upgraded to a corner room offering a fabulous view of the backwaters and the gardens. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us and all our requests were looked into instantly. My friends got the staff to decorate the room as it was my birthday and they wanted to surprise me..They arranged a gorgeous dinner in a secluded spot in the garden which normally serves only tea..The staff took pains to see that everything was perfect! The suite was amazing and so were all the other rooms that we had booked. This was a truly exceptional stay! We have always loved our stays at the Malabar and this was the crowning glory!

Highly recommended

Impeccable service and staff, except food quality and presentation and attention to detail
If you are reading this review and considering booking this hotel, I would recommend to book right away. So pleased with or excellent stay. Service was one of the best I've received and I've stayed in quite a few luxury hotels. Also enjoyed the conplimetary afternoon tea and river cruise. Also excellent fine dining at the rice boat restaurant. You must have the coconut soufflé!! Thanks Taj and look forward to my next stay :)
