If you are looking for a 2-3 day break away from the city, this is a wonderful property to go to. About 5 hours drive from Chennai. Till Tindivanam you can take the expressway and the state highway thereafter. The state highway has a few rough patches but overall a decent route. The property is a refurbished village where they...

It's a heritage hotel and staying here for a second time. The first time I came, it used to be good but now I think it need good maintenance and some refurbishments. Beds are ok but linen quality need to be improved. Food is good :) but the front desk & F&B staff should improve their service. Front desk staff... More

We had a unique and rustic experience. Being children of the 70s we got really nostalgic about the rotary phone, the ceramic switches, the tin bucket in the bathroom, the slate and chalk instead of pen and paper. It is those small touches that make all the difference. Our 9 year old had a grand time playing with the geese... More

This is a wonderful property to stay at to visit nearby temples at Thanjavur, Chidambaram, Srirangam etc. The rooms are all historical and well maintained and clean. The grounds are beautiful with many friendly animals around like deer, turkeys, geese etc. The restaurant served wonderful food like dosas, vada, idli and other traditional south Indian items. They had a dinner... More

I stayed with my family for two nights. Though we did not have much time to spend at the resort, the little time we spend there was great. The place had deers, peacocks, cows, Quails, ducks, etc.... which was wonderful thing for the kids. My little daughter had a great time with running around these..... The staff were very courteous...

This is a wonderful hotel when you visit rural Tamil Nadu. The hotel has all the amenities that one needs and yet has an original feel to it. In addition, the staff is very, very friendly and helpful. Not everything at the hotel was perfect. For example, the hot water boiler did not work at first. But all "challenges" that... More

My family and I have been visiting INDeco Swamimalai from its early days, when it had just a handful of rooms in the main house and was known as Sterling Swamimalai. Every year we would see it grow and grow, with more rooms, a bigger restaurant, a delightful pool that looks like a temple tank, and so on. However what... More

This has been one of the few unique and heritage village based hotels present in modern India where luxury is clubbed with traditional system. The rooms, restaurant, swimming pool everything here has a heritage look attached to it. The Bullock Cart Ride through the Village is a must experience for all as its really worth experiencing. This Hotel is definitely... More
