Taj Malabar

Historians will tell you that Kochi is a modified form of the word 'Cochazhi' which in Malayalam means 'small sea'. Some will insist that 'Kochi' was named so by traders from the court of the Chinese ruler Kublai Khan. Others will have you believe that Kochi is derived from the word 'Kaci' meaning 'harbour'.

There is however a new name which adds a fresh vibrancy to this historical location. Vivanta by Taj - Malabar

Situated on Willingdon Island with a magnificent view of Cochin harbour, Vivanta by Taj - Malabar is a fine balance between yesterday and tomorrow.
