“Paradise Found”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I have nothing but good comments about Tamara Resort, Coimbatore. This place is located in Perumal Kovil Pathy. Travelled to Coimbatore by train from Pondicherry. Though the journey was pretty hectic, visiting this place was absolutely worth everything.. This is a small property offering accommodation in tented units.. The tents are located facing a water front.. I would say this is one of those resorts with an amazing view.

This place is very secluded and romantic.. The gardens and lawns are excellently maintained that takes the whole atmosphere to a completely different level.

The tented units are very very spacious that could provide accommodation for at least 5 people with ease and carries all facilities. My stay at Tamara Resort was very comfortable.

The staff is very very friendly and very helpful.. They always have a smile on their faces. I must say the food offered here is excellent. Loved the traditional South Indian delicacies to Chinese food.. You name it, they've got it..

I would go to this place over and over again if I get the chance

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The best thing about the resort is the tented accommodation and the locale.The resort overlooks a lake and a hill and is located away from the hustle bustle of the city life. The tents are comfortable enough for a family of four. The decor is great and the setting simply beautiful. The landscape of the resort is minimal but well maintained. Apart from an activity room, there is nothing much to do or see around the resort. The food however was a great disappointment. We had to choose from the limited dinner buffet menu that was planned for a corporate group leaving us with little choice. We had to go out in search of a staff if we had to order something each time as the staff was busy catering to a group and they took their own sweet time to bring in the order. The same thing repeated the following morning despite not having to cater to a group. The restaurant had only one guy at the breakfast counter and had to run around to get something each time a request was placed. For a resort that boasts of international locations(they have one in Sri Lanka), it was surprising that they overlooked the basics of serving. We had to request for butter and jam, sugar...and the food was definitely below average. Worth staying if you are willing to overlook the food factor!

Room Tip: The tented accommodation is definitely recommended.

Excellent , beautiful, Unique , Awesome all for Tamara!! great place for relaxation. Off the busy life from city to a place of beauty. Our Vacation had been memorable thank you Tamara and its staff.

Polite Service and hospitality from Lingam, Rajesh, Arokiya, Deepak and others... Delicious food from the best chef. Beautiful Lawn and Tents. Tamara is the best place for relaxation in Coimbatore.

You guys Rock !!!!

But to little disappointment Lizards can be controlled. :(

Room Tip: Please ensure you plan and reserve the rooms in advanced to avoid last minute rushes.

We stayed for a night at the resort and then had a day get together on Sunday. Batch meet. The resort location was excellent with a light rain most of the time. The resort staff were accommodative and helpful. Food was basic and good.
Nice place for a short relaxing stay or for a day gettogether

We had visited this resort in August 2012, and found the setting to be terrific.
Probably one of the best resorts (overall) we had vacationed in .
The property was uber-classy (what can beat mother nature at her best!?)
and we absolutely loved it. Its one kind of nature's retreat !
The resort situated at the foot-hills of the Western Ghats had a lake front (check-dam)
breath-taking view, which was very peaceful when sitting on the private balcony .
Birds , Ducks , Peacocks , Koels . .and you can meditate! Evenings were uber - romantic !

The rooms ( tents for a change) were also great, tastely designed with aestheics.
10/10 on this ! Quite impressive! The one who got this idea must've whispered "Eureka!!"
The queen sized beds were very comfortable . They had fast internet connectivity which had absolutely no problems ( for people like me, this means quite a lot).

The heart-winning cuisine in their restaurant need's special mention
( and an applause ! Every dish was good and competed with each other )!
My pick : Try all their starters and the Shahi Tukri sweet -
( Indian version of the English bread pudding ) ! Yummy !

Suggestions : Ala carte could be made available and left to the preferance of the guests . We enjoyed the food for 3 courses the first day , and were forced to have buffet for the second day. ... We didn't find the buffet as sumptuous as the ala carte .
Something should be worked out on this front.

The employees were wonderful. All were very friendly and helpful. They try their best to solve problems. Special mention of appreciation to Mr.Thilak ( THE talented chef ), Mr.Magesh Lingan , Mr.Saravanan and the cheerful kind Antony cannot be missed :) ...
A wonderful holidaying experience , and made lovely friends!

Final say : Definitely worth a visit...
if you are looking for solitude and peaceful vacation away from the hustle n bustle of the cities .

You'll keep coming back for more :) ! and I shall !

We were two ppl and our stay was planned for 1 day. This resort is at a distance of 20-30 kms from main coimbatore city and will have to shell out 2000rs for up and down trip by taxi. Main letdown is that they do not have a swimming pool or a full size games lounge. Restaurent offers decent quality food, room service takes long time. This resort property overlooks a lake, this sets a relaxing atmosphere. Service is pretty good but they dont hav sufficient staff there. overall not a value for money holiday destination.
