“Excellent hotel, superb swimming pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Excellent hotel with a lovely selection of swimming pools, the spa offers good value for money services and the hardessers is excellent. The oak tavern bar is very good whilst the main restaurant is average. The location is very close to Whitfield and i Would definitely recommend a stay here

Stayed December 2012, traveled solo

Welcome to Palm Meadows, one of the most amazing gated communities in Bangalore. We have lots of great features inside the club including a:
- Library/Business Center
- Billiards Room
- Spa
- Basketball Court
- Tennis Court
- Badminton Court
- Barber Shop
- Squash Court
- Gym/Fitness Center
- Restaurant
- Pool
The pool is particularly amazing and has several parts:
- Scenic Pool
- Upper Pool
- Kid's Pool
- Stream
- Indoor Pool
The largest part is the scenic part, it has a majestic waterfall from the upper pool flowing into it and also has several palm trees in a shallow area at the front, and fake sand in the back right next to the waterfall, this proves to be quite a sight for the restaurant. Unfortunately, the water is cold and the sand is crumbly. The kid's pool is very shallow, a small water slide and is cold. The upper pool is cold and has non-functioning water jets. Luckily there are a few warmer pool sections, the stream is warm and flows into the lap pool which I can only assume is warm because I haven't tried it yet. But the warmest of all is the indoor pool which is inside the fitness center.

There are also a few downsides:
- Hotel rooms are extremely expensive
- If you're planning on staying for less than a year then the amount apartments you can get are a bit limited
- People on motorcycles gas the roads with bug spray
- There is still plenty of mosquitoes
- It is mandatory to hire a maid and gardener and pay for them instead of Palm Meadows paying
- There are occasional blackouts

One thing that might upset some people is the fact that it is a total bubble the experience so different. A last few cool things are:
- There is a food store inside the gates
- They have grass

Palm Meadows is a hotel, club as well as closed & gated, residential complex. A small town on its own. Hard to believe it is amidst this huge noisy city Bangalore. A safe heaven where one can relax, swim, workout in a huge gym, play tennis, jog in the streets on the compound and of course enjoy everything that a good hotel ahas to offer. I would not rate the food that high.. Not that it is bad, however it is not very interesting considering the price and the name of this complex.
Food is really average.
What make a stay nice here, is the surroundings. It is quiet, clean and well maintained.

Palm meadows is gated community that is attractive to westerners as it removes some of the craziness of India. The rooms are rather old and modest (don't expect anything extravegant), but the grounds are beautiful, the food is good, and it is very nice and quiet at night.

You get the hustle and bustle in India, but for a quiet retreat, palm meadows club is perfect. Great lawn, swings for children and a play area with Billiards room inside as well along with Badminton, Racket ball. If you are a runner, you got plenty of places to go jogging inside the community. The club is in the middle of off-white colored villas with orange roofs studded with tall palm trees and great landscaping. The front desk is hospitable. The housekeeping could pull their act together better. For starters, having the condition of you being present in the room to clean is ridiculous. And, they didn’t seem to be too thorough. Food – we only had the buffet breakfast which was included in the room. Now, if you are expecting a desi feast, forget about it. It is a feast that is a fusion between west and east. You can have eggs made how you want, order fresh pooris, stuffed parathas and pancakes. Their daily sambhar was amazing with Idly. They had a fruit platter. Rest the things were alright. Some days they had channa to go with poori which was great. So, it filled our needs and we enjoyed it. We ordered taxi through the hotel a lot. My most favorite part about the property – Floral Arrangements-patterns of flowers, leaves, and candles in a deep large metal bowl. These were at all entrances and they would change the pattern every few days. On the side of cons - sometimes ordering special requests like forks, or clean laundry was not so prompt and yes, one more thing, the water in the bath tub would not drain, so we bathed in a pool of soapy water daily! No clocks in the rooms, not even the alarm clock ones! We had to request one! So, besides the cons, the property is a great experience and I would go there again despite the cons.

Stayed here for four days while on business - very nice, extremely clean and great service. Located within a gated community so very peaceful. You have to like Indian food (which I do). The location is out from the center of Bangalore which in my opinion is a good thing

Room Tip: All rooms are wthin dormatory type blocks and non are far from the pool or restaurant
