Charming hotel with lovely grounds. We were upgraded and we loved our room. Huge and full of old Indian charm. Service was very good and the staff were all cheerful and helpful. Lovely veranda in the cool shade for an afternoon beer. The food was very good. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Reviewed 2 January 2014

I stayed here in November 2013 for a couple of days. It was quite pleasant, the rooms are good and well maintained and the resort has a certain character. It felt quite safe (I was a woman travelling on my own). The food is good too. And the staff are generally attentive and prompt.

I had a couple of suggestions: One the resort is outside the main town and it seemed a bit difficult to get around by public transport. Most people hire or have their own car. But if you don't, the autorickshaw has to be called and it can be a bit erratic. Unfortunately some of the staff slip up at times despite leaving instructions and you end up waiting a bit for a rickshaw. The rickshaw fare also varies, though this is not always under the control of the staff, the rickshaw driver changes the rate at the destination. It would really help if they kept bicycles on the property (as I have seen elsewhere) as this would make things easier and the twon and surrounds more navigable.

Second, Darasuram Temple is very close to the resort and is quite beautiful. It would help to publicise it a bit more and have a few more pamphlets on it, I nearly missed seeing it. It isn't on the average temple tourist agenda but for those interested in history and architecture it's well worth a visit.

Just stopped to have lunch. Very nice welcome, pleasant terrace restaurant. The food was plentiful and interestingly enough the Chinese food (spring rolls) was much more interesting than the local cuisine (pasanda). The resort seems excellent but I can't really comment as we didn't stay there.

Dear Sir,

I must appreciate the time you took for shooting out your valuable feedback on this site.

It goes for a lot of appreciation as you just stepped by for a meal.

Glad that you enjoyed it, but Paradise is not about the food alone, eventhough we place our biggest importance to the food we serve.

Our rooms, the activities we offer the ambience etc all these are our biggest USPs other than the food we offer, so we would like you to experience our resort next time on your visit.

Request you to stay and have a feel of the resort in its entirety and want you to experience and take home valuable memories of your stay.

Once again Many thanks on your feedback

Wonderful stay. Everyone was very helpful. We were in one of the river view cottages, almost like staying in a small village. The hotel dogs, Julie and Jake, were great and made us feel welcome. Be sure to take advantage of the village walk with one of the resort staff. There is a small, local temple in the village that is worth the short walk.

Room Tip: Pick any river view cottage.

Dear Sir,

Many thanks for your valuable feedback.

River side cottages do have their own charm and character as the whole area is calm and serene

Also glad to know that you liked the village visit the walk and visit of village temple, there is also a village school wherein they could interact with the school children.

Indeed a walk across the village would be a refreshing one and simple things like going into a village thatched house and sight of a kolam being drawn in the front of the house would be memories that would linger on and would captivate the mind and heart of a guest for that matter.

Once again glad that you had a memorable stay and wish to see you yet another time at our property.


Thanks

Please dont look any where else if you are looking for a stay in Kumbakonam. It is by far the best place here. The interiors and the over all aesthetics make you feel that you are staying in an ancient Heritage house of Tamilnadu. The efforts of the management in painstakingly sourcing each and every element and detail like the doors, windows etc shows their passion in showcasing the culture, art & architecture of the state. Apart from that the staff is very helpful, location superb, food is soulful. It is interesting to note that there is an organic vegetable farm in the property from where many of the ingredients of the kitchen are sourced, no wonder the food tastes so good

This resort is in a peaceful place along the main road leading to Kumbakonam town. Rooms are spacious. Staff were very helpful. We stayed for only one night as we were travelling within Tamilnadu. Compared to other places where we stayed during this trip, this resort could be classifed as a good one with lot of greenery around. We were surprised at the slow pace of service in the restaurant. We ordered for dinner for dosai, idli, etc., but it took ages before we could be served, inspite of only one more table being occupied by another family. Rooms were clean. Toilets need to be modernised.If this two aspects could be attended to then it will make the clients very happy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Paradise Resort is centrally located for 3 world Heritage UNESCO Monuments and all Navagraha and other important temples. With great ambience built on south Indian rich heritage style, spread in around 12 acres of vast lush and greenery, situated in a Highway and ends at River view is indeed one of its kind to offer you Culture and Pilgrim tour combined with complete relaxation and rejuvenationParadise Resort is a Government of India approved 3 star property on the Tanjore Highway at a five minute distance from Darasuram Iravadeeshwarar temple (World Heritage UNESCO Monument). Situated amidst lush lawns and plenty of greenery the resort is a retreat for the tired traveler. The resort comes from the belief that south Indian tradition culture and heritage which has got a rich legacy has to be promoted and therefore we have made our spacious rooms in traditional ambience. With 150 year old antique doors in each of the rooms the furniture with intricate work of teak wood again transports one to an era of life of the south Indians those days. But again the spacious bathroom in each of the rooms has a bathtub or a cubicle and is very sophisticated. The Restaurant with arches and windows of the yesteryears and tables and chairs with work and craftsmanship of Burmese teak is a feast for the eyes. The resort is known for its food which again depicts a lot of traditional elements in its cuisine. The massive swimming pool is again a highly relaxing place. The very attractive and appealing swimming pool is done up with the latest Italian glass tiles. The view from the 6 pool view rooms is breathtaking.Our new additions are the river view cottages again done in traditional style and having awesome ambience. We are also supported by a village behind the property; guests can be taken for a village walk in which more than getting to see village houses and their lifestyle, there is a village temple with big Iyyanar statues (village security god). Bullock cart rides to temples near by, excursions to Weaving industry, pottery making, and bronze making industry can also be done.Other activities could be fishing in the river, visit to agricultural fields and showing the process of cultivation. Organization of lots of traditional games inside the resort would be an added pleasure.Cultural performances like folk dances which are very special to the localite like thappattam (a traditional Tamil dance) is also done. A lot of work goes into more innovative activities to make the stay more than pleasurable a memorable one. ... more   less
