Mr. Eshwar helped us alot during our stay in Gateway Pasumalai Madurai. Mr. Eshwar supported us for travel locally to temples and guided very well about the timings and places of our interest. His humble and genuine nature will yearn him many rewards. He has gone above and beyond his normal job description to help me out on several occasions. Once he walked with us to our room in the winter evening as it was dark as we were afraid to walk past. He always has a good attitude and is willing to do whatever we ask. Thanks for the excellent service. Mr. Arulvalan in the dinning was so kind and his hospitality in his service made us dumbstruck. We had availed complementary breakfast but as we wanted to visit Meenakshi temple we could not have it properly. Instead the next day he ensured we enjoyed the food and ambiance in the dinning area. He politely took all the orders and served food with so much care that we did not feel like leaving the place. He gave creative suggestions based on our tastes. He is a smart and hard worker. We are very thankful for the food he served us. We remembered our grandmother's home food and care for us with his service.

Can I ever go back to Madurai & stay anywhere else? Travelled with mom (60y), kids (12y, 5y), me & wife. Each one enjoyed more than 5 amazing things for themselves. Mom - privacy, ease of movement, safety, food, sensitive service. Kids - peacock feeding, closeness of squirrels & birds with humans, swimming in safety, buffet (just because we requested), just going alone around to explore (freedom & safety), city view from room - with binoculars & more I could just be - because I know everyone in my family is taken care of. I'm sensitive to bedding material - but man, I kept wondering about what materials you use - so warm & not heating up the body. I looked at the bill & said to myself - well worth it man! This place deserves it. Mr. Siddharth Jain, GM - you're so humble & awesome. The culture you set feels so warm and inviting. Mr. Arul, Manager at restaurant - you are a man who just can't stop giving. You are so sensitive to guest's needs. I could just send my kids to the restaurant while I'm resting & I know they are taken care of. The parcel you gave for our journey, we did not want to throw away the empty packaging because it is so full of love (I'm getting all poetic here!) Mr. Subhash & Mr. Sudipta was as awesome at service. Mr. Mohan, Service team - took the efforts to roast & grind coffee bean for me early in the morning! You are awesome man. You bench marked service I've experienced :) Mr. Eashwar - what amazing warmth you have; & your awesome photography skills. Mr. Vinoth, Front office manager, Ms. Subhasri - front office, guest relations - what care & concern. Very warm approach; sometimes front office can get a bit cold & intimidating in hotels, especially when settling bills - but you folks were so warm & welcoming. Chef Mr. Muthukumar - My wife is a nutritionist - Vegan, gluten free eater. he was mesmerized by what you did. This is a man of very few words & full of action. Exceptional Service, amazing safety, just what you want from a trip to Madurai. Just decide and book here; don't go anywhere else. I'm a native of Madurai. Travel every year. But never experience Madurai like this.

Superb hotel for family vacation. Food is very nice, real South Tamilnadu taste. Location amongst the beauty of nature is the most impressive part. Balcony view of entire madurai city. Wandering peacocks near to you feels like you're in a forest homestay.
