It was a nice surprise to visit the property which is spread over 100 acres, full of natural beauty and peacocks! People, typical of Taj, were courteous and helpful. It’s a heritage property from the British times; well maintained but a little run down! Wish we had stayed longer!

One of the best properties I have stayed at. Wish I had more time to spare. Extremely well maintained, although it is a very difficult property to maintain. We arrived early for check-in, but the staff accommodated us, which we greatly appreciate. Staff also gave us a ride in their buggy around the property.

I enjoyed the environment, beautiful sight of peacocks and excellent service. Reception staff service specifically Pandian, is fantastic and extremely helpful. Very responsive and customer service mindset. All the staff who I had interacted in Restaurant and Housekeeping was excellent. Management team is courteous. Taj Pasumalai will be our preferred stay during our next trip. Thank to all the staff for taking extra care of guests and giving Taj experience

This is a beautiful classy hotel on the top a hill. We stayed there one night and had an amazing experience. The staff is extremely warm and caring. Room are very large and comfortable. The restaurant Vista has a beautiful view of the Madurai town. The food of the restaurant is also very delicious esp the South Indian cuisine. Ms Subhashree at reception is very efficient in their paperless environment. The Food and Beverages Manager Mr Arul Valant and the restaurant Manager Mr Ramesh Ayyanar went out of their way to make my birthday ( 4th Sept) memorable. Their team brought a cake in great style at the outside lawn with candles and beautiful Taj logo. The pictures of this moment are stunning. I was truly overwhelmed by their love and affection. I will strongly recommend staying at this outstanding Taj property if you happen to visit Madurai.

Excellent care by hotel staffs. Rooms are perfectly maintained well. Kids enjoyed a lot. Hygenically maintained pool. Breakfast could have been better ( may be a bad day for us !) but rest all was superb experience. Worth to come again :)
