Two minutes walk from sister property, Malabar House, still in the heart of the historic Dutch area of Fort Cochin is the delightful Malabar Trinity. It houses just three modern suites, contemporary in design, in an historic building that was once the headquarters of the Dutch East India Company. Their VOC logo still adorns the gate.
The suites are spacious and decorated with antique artworks that blend effortlessly with the modern Indian designed furniture. Colours are kept neutral and warm with splashes of colour in the soft furnishings. The overall feel is chic and contemporary, uncluttered with smooth lines and ambient lighting. Two of the rooms have 'garden bathrooms' and all have a seating area where you can relax.
The suites open onto the common hallway, which is a showcase for contemporary Indian design and art alongside antique furniture which adorns this relaxing space. Breakfast is served in the dining/sitting room or you could opt to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. There's also a small pool and decking area. Guests at Trinity have the use of all the facilities at Malabar House, including the restaurant where you will find excellent dishes, a fusion of Asian, Indonesian and Mediterranean flavours, while staying in the more private and exclusive setting of Trinity.
