Indeco Swamimalai is a 15minute drive from the Kumbakonam railway station. It is perfect place to base yourself to cover the temples around or just to take a break. The resort is truly one of its kind and you get an experience and just not get to stay there. It is a Heritage hotel and an entire village restored and... More

This was my group's favorite hotel during our 3 week trip across South India. Wonderful in every way. The owner is fanatic about preserving and recreating an old Tanjore-style village so that each of the separate rooms has been recreated to look like it might have been built in the 1930's or so - in great detail. Even down to... More

The place is brilliant. Manages to achieve the perfect balance between a charming museum and a very practical hotel. Delights include greenery, deer and peacocks, filter coffee made with fresh cow milk, neat vegetarian food, super nice staff and the temple pond like pool. The rooms are quaint and perfectly functional at the same time. It must've taken a great... More

INDeco's property never fails to transform our religious pilgrimage into a full-fledged vacation. With a beautiful ambiance, variety of activities, and pleasant service, this is a great option for any large family. Although the food options and room amenities could be improved, for the price I find this perfectly reasonable. On top of that, this is the best hotel in... More

A beautifully conceived resort which has preserved a bye gone era in the Kaveri delta. The resort is lovely and peaceful - the only sounds you hear are bird and squirrel calls and the occasional sounds of carpentry work. The quirky resort reflects the passion of the owner who has definitely succeeded in creating a unique resort. I am very... More

We have stayed at this hotel four times, so far. It is everything that those below have said it is.
