We had to stay overnight at Madurai during our recent vacation. It was a pleasant surprise when we reached this hotel. It is an old property atop a hillock and is spread over 60 odd acres. With wonderful landscaping and peacocks moving around, it was a nice experience. The room was excellent. Moreover, the food and the service was also... More

I am a frequent visitor to this hotel. I have been coming here since it was converted from a private house, 20 years ago. The location is excellent and the attention of the staff is of the highest quality. It is my favourite hotel world-wide. RECOMMENDED.

The location on top of a hill is excellent. It gives a great view of Madurai city. Food was excellent and upto Taj standards. The green surroundings were quite pleasant and the peacocks on the property are a sure attraction. Ideal place for lounging and spending time.

Break fast should start by 7 at least in the morning, even though it is announced as 6.30 am on the entrance sign, staff walk in only at 7.30 am .i would appreciate if this is improved. nothing more to add.

Its simply the best place to stay in Madurai and the most scenic, sitting atop a hillock. The location is still very close to the heart of the city combining the calm and quiet of the hill forest with easy access to everywhere in Madurai. You get a resort experience with peacocks and other beautiful birds as company. In addition,... More

We went here to beat the heat in the afternoons. Spent the hot afternoon with a few beers and some typical south indian starters. We followed this with a pleasant stroll in the property. Its a nice heritage house which has been well tended by the Taj Group. There are peacocks and a nice sit out (and a charming swing)... More

As we drove up the long, curved road into this property we began to suspect we had entered a special place. On arrival the reception staff sat us in the cool bar and gave us cool drinks while they checked us in to the hotel. We were conducted to our room and shown the amenities and how to operate the...

The rooms in the main wing need to be modernised. Though large and comfortable, the furniture, doors, windows etc are old. The bed was comfortable, airconditioning excellent and bathroom was spacious and modern.
