Thali meals excellent. Though dinner buffet not quite good .just 1 dessert. Breakfast... More

If you wonder about how the Royal kings and queens in the ancient history lived their lives? Then, to get a slice of that experience, I suggest you go to INDeco.. It's ancient, pristine and eco friendly... From the water jugs to beds, to the soaps they keep, it's ancient or at least they have replicated it so well.. This... More

Its a great resort spread over 20 acres amidst lots of trees. There is art-work, sculptures, all over the resort and it also has a museum. The trees, the ducks and the geese, and the birds, create a serene ambiance. Accommodation is in cottages that gives an appearance of a village. But inside, the amenities are top class. Everything is... More

We stayed in Indeco Swamimalai for a week in November 2015, as part of a spiritual retreat programme. The owner has recreated the ambience of a heritage village with great attention to detail. Just walking around the property and admiring the artefacts can keep one occupied for hours. They have Bharatanatyam dance performances on some days which is interesting, especially... More

One of the most traditional locations I have been to, especially in South India. The resort is easy to locate and is just off the Kumbakonam Swamimalai road. Every body is dressed in the local traditional attire. This is the setting of an ancient village from the region and so are the rooms / cottages. The phones in the rooms... More

ENJOY! Visited in Nov 2015 with family. Its a historic place. Reconstructing a palace look-n-feel from ruins of a palace in Madras. Got a 2-min foot massage on arrival to make you feel special. Awesome museum within the premises. Need min. 1hr to enjoy it properly. Small details like - old telephone instruments & chalk-n-slate for writing gives a nostalgic... More

Truly well preserved heritage settings that transport you back in time. The cottages,the restaurant,resort layout and the reception area, every inch of this resort is exceptionally original. The heritage museum in the resort is a treasure trove of rare artefacts which is a phenomenal effort by the promoter Mr.Steve Borgia towards heritage conservation. Amazing opportunity to interact with swans,deer and... More

The property takes you back in time and space. It provides an excellent opportunity to meander across an old time village and soak up an atmosphere uninterrupted with motorized vehicles and noise. Great for chilling out peacefully.

We had a memorable stay in INDeco! The decor and design are truly inspired; we enjoyed visiting the museum and going through the antique furniture and photographs of the original house / surroundings. Mornings are particularly magical; you will be surrounded by ducks, deer and geese while you sip your filter coffee in the garden. The rooms are basic but... More
