The hotel is listed on trip advisor as # 1 and for sure, I can endorse. Excellent place to stay. This property has a huge nature park surrounding it and I went round with one of the very very helpful green butler who took me for a nature walk. Wow...wow. I could see and photograph so many birds including owlets.... More

Very much happy with the stay at Hotel Taj Gateway, Madurai. I was so much excited about the location, that is hill top location of this property and surrounded by nature especially peacocks everywhere. The rooms were excellent, cozy, romantic. Overall it was a new experience. Great property i would say.

My son and I stayed for two nights at this hotel. Our room was spacious and comfortable. There was a great bay window in the room with comfy chairs in the alcove.

High on a hill, with the sounds of the bustling city in the distance, this hotel was perfect for a bit of relaxation before touring the area. The real treat were the peacocks that lived on the grounds. I can't tell you how many pictures I have of peacocks with their tail feathers open. When these peacocks are in flight... More

I was here for just a night. The place is excellent. On a small hill with lot of trees and nature. Has good view of Madurai town. The rooms are excellent and an early morning peacock wake-up call makes it even more special. The breakfast and dinner spread is lavish.

The hotel is in a scenic location not very far away from the buzzling town of Madurai. The best part of the stay was that you drive a very slight elevation on the road for approximately a kilometer and you reach the beautiful location on the Pasumalai hillock. This is more like a resort than a hotel. The rooms are... More
