We stayed 2 nights in a bungalow in a park like environment. Good Service and value for Money. But when the invoice is due insists paying with your credt Card in paying in Rupees. Otherwise they convert in EURO and you loos some 5% ! Far better than the INDECO in Mahabalipuram which was disappointing.

We were a group of 20 on a temple tour, and it was a great idea to have lunch here. This is a very charming little resort which strives to give you a local aesthetic experience. Loved the old artifacts, the tanjore-chettinad look and feel of the place, and the greenery all around. The restaurant is lovely. Not air-conditioned but... More

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
