I was here on a leisure trip with my family. This property (more than 60 acres) is located on top of the hill Pasumalai. The road leading from the main road to hotel is breathtaking. You can view Madurai city from the gardens surrounding the cottages / rooms. The rooms are furnished to the needs and maintained well. During day time you will be having lot of feathered friends especially peacocks. You can see group of them walking around in the garden.
The restaurant is well laid out for breakfast and dinner. You can enjoy south Indian cuisines in the garden having the company of peacocks.
The staff is very friendly and helping. But this review will not be complete without mentioning some names who made our stay memorable. They are Mr.Indranil Ray, General Manager and Mr.D.Vinpugal, Front office Manager. Both of them ensured that we had a comfortable and memorable stay. A special thanks to our driver Mr. Bala who took us around and showed us all important places which we enjoyed. And he took us to authentic south Indian restaurants for lunch which we really enjoyed. The experience is so good, and we promise to return to this place for our next holiday. This property gives a feeling of staying in a hill station.
