The Malabar House



The Malabar House is in the heart of historical Fort Cochin, opposite St. Francis Church and 3 minutes walk to the Chinese fishing nets.

It is ideally located for sightseeing, shopping and backwater cruises.

Jew town with its vast curio and antique market is 3 km away; the Vembanad lake just an hours drive.


The Malabar House is not just another Cochin hotel, it is a documented part of Fort Cochin’s & Kerala’s historical fabric.

Its history dates back to 1755, when Jan Herman Clausing, a Dutch, bought the property from Mathew Henrich Beyls. Subsequently owned by spice traders, tea traders & bankers, in 1996 it became Fort Cochin’s first boutique heritage hotel.


Designed to the last detail and furnished with select antiques and art, The Malabar House seamlessly combines tradition & contemporary design.

The feel is small, cozy & personal, a heaven amidst this vibrant yet historical harbour city.


The Malabar House is more than a highly designed heritage hotel. It is an art hotel, home of a carefully curate collection, highlighting Kerala’s composite culture as a passage between
east and west.
