Nice clean hotel (Oops! should not say it is a hotel. It is more like a resort). The service quality was excellent. Within the hustle and bustle of Madurai, this was an oasis of calm. While it is not a wildlife resort, got to see lot of birds and squirrels. We can hear the peacocks all round the day and... More

It is an excellent place to stay in Madurai. A place in the city but feels away from the city and relaxed. The food is great. Nice garden with peacocks and squirrels. the view from the suite of madurai city is beautiful. Could also see the 'Gopurums' of Madurai Meenakshi temple at a distance. The area was quite with good...

It was a exceptional stay. You can see peacocks all around this beautiful property. Also from the restaurant, you can see an aerial view of the entire Madurai city. Very good property. Staff was very helpful, since I called on phone for room from Palani, at the time when I started from Palani to Madurai and still they managed to... More

Excellent service, quick check in, convenient check out, quality food, lush greenery, courteous staff and clean property. The indoor games facility and the pool facing the natural sceneray are sure to zap you. Pasumalai gateway is for sure the best getaway... Isn't it awesome to have Peacocks accompanying you for breakfast??!!

Very good for Leisure trip. Bit away from the main City Hub. For those reaching & Leaving Madurai by Train ( Pandian express) which reaches early morning & Leaves late evening, the check out & Check in timings will not suit. In our case the Hotel was very cooperative in allowing early checkinn & late check out.

This heritage hotel is located on top of the hill. Whilst it offers stunning view of the city, be ready to use the stairs. This property is not for the elderly or wheelchair guests. Depending on your room location, you can expect to climb about 4 to 5 levels just to get to the lobby. The room is spacious but... More
