Great Ambience

but food is not at par, staff talk so loud cutlery is old and rooms stink. Watchmen are really rude, and no staff for valet parking. Seriously need renovation.

I could recommend this place to anyone, just for the view it gives, across the city. Its a perfect place to have a cup of coffee at the dusk, with the sight of the temple at that distance, with the lights starting to blink, into the blue skies.

The location is really good.This resort is located in a small hill named Pasumalai. It takes 10-15minutes to reach the hotel which is in the top.The whole of the hill belongs to that resort.Once you reach there you can see the city with those gopurams.Also you will be excited to see some peacocks in the hill.Totally it s awesome.
