We visited this AWESOME place in March. From the time we drove in and till we left it (with heavy heart, my younger son started crying), we had a great time. We stayed in the suite there. Terrific place. The restaurant was excellent. Food was sumptuous. The hosts were very courteous be it the reception or at the restaurant very... More

We had another nice stay at Indeco. It a theme hotel and this time we also met hotel owner Steve. Hotel staff was courteous and agreed to some basic demands. The property is nice to walk around. There was a cultural program arranged in the evening and it was wonderful to watch classical dance. A good place to enjoy. Rooms... More

I have been a regular visitor to this resort for the past 12+ years - the resort stay this time was just above average only - the rooms where I stayed - Room 125 initially had a very noisy Aircon. Despite repeated requests to the girl manning the reception to allot a room with a proper Aircon, we were shifted... More

A resort of integration of 19th and 21st centuries; Eco friently and a tanjore village type stay with all the modern facilities; While roaming around the exteriors, there is a feeling created as if we are in the midst of a adorable village; but when we enter the cottages, we are at home with modern facilities like Ac, fan, bed,etc....

This place is meant for foreigners and natives who would like to taste the good old days of a typical Indian living - warm, secluded, away from the killer routines of modern day life. Its a mini forest and you will share your living spaces with deers, geese and turkeys which are accustomed to close contacts with humans. Urban kids... More

This is a resort surrounded by trees, friendly animals like deer, peacocks, ducks, geese and turkey which gives the feeling of living in the woods. Staff is very friendly and service your request with a smile and promptly. We stayed there as part of a big group for a spiritual retreat. There was stunning dance performance by in-house architect.The palace... More

This is a stunning location, hotel as village, well perhaps not village but certainly commune crossed with holiday resort. Separate chalets for some, central restaurant, swimming pool, museum all as a community in the verdant countryside. However, my experience - some of which I accept is subjective - tarnished this idyllic scene. The suite cannot be faulted, the bed comfortable,... More

Was not expecting much when I booked the hotel. But I am happy to say this has been the most refreshing experience in a while. The property is kept clean and the greenery is bound to steal your heart. An amazing place for kids to see ducks, peacocks, deers moving freely. Restaurant is vegetarian but I enjoyed every meal there... More

The Indeco Swamimalai is truly a brave choice to make. If you are/were a 60’s hippy type, then you would love it, but with geese, ducks, guinea fowl, and turkeys having free roam of the grounds, you need to look where you put your feet; altogether too Bohemian for our taste. The internet did not “reach”, as the hotel put... More
