I couldn't have been made to feel more welcome.there is a huge team of people looking after the hotel and gardens.
It's not a brand new resort and is a little quirky,but the rooms were clean,everything worked.The pool and poolside was spotless when I was there.
On the downside the bar could do with brightening up,its not somewhere where I felt I could chill out with a beer in the evening..
Breakfast was lovely,the staff were great.I can't comment on the evening meals as I was eating out anyway,but they rustled up a good daal chapatti and rice in an emergency.
The reviews I read on this site previously I think were undeserved,for the cost I was pleasantly surprised.I would definately stay there again.

This is a Westerner's review. Travel agent booked trip and we were supposed to have only 4 or 5 start hotels. This could be a great property. The art cottages to the back were interesting, did not see inside one. Please see the comments from visitors viewpoint. Update your linens frequently, fix existing infrastructure or remove it. Paint. No plastic chairs for restaurant. Cloth napkins. Clean rooms well. Especially since you are beach side property.
They appear to have their electrical systems connected to a generator that failed frequently. The rest of town was fine. NO COLD WATER WITHOUT POWER. The Property appears very old and extremely neglected. Original light fixtures are there but not operational. (update the electrical and fix the older light fixtures or remove them, otherwise the appearance of neglect is huge). Bar, Bartender was sound asleep. When we did return day 2, they only had beer. Restaurant tried but failed. I shouldn't have to explain what or how to make Chicken Cordon Bleu if it is on your menu. (In fairness, they did not charge. But plan on eating out.) Pool (use a knowledgeable pool maintenance company to keep the ph levels safe and fix the internal and surrounding lights) was murky and unusable.
Beach access was nice but not clearly marked as the lighting fixtures don't work. (The Tsunami did some damage so expected this)
A collection of old chairs sitting near reception exposed to the sea air and wind, qualifying as a "museum". (This area appeared to be the original bar area or dining area. It would make a great lounging area for quests but yet it is held as a museum of deteriorating furniture?) Trash the chairs and create a great space for quests.
I did find the numerous electrical outages infuriating. Last day getting ready by iphone flashlights with no cold water was frustrating beyond belief.

Room Tip: If you are a Westerner traveling, go to the Radisson resort. It is a short walk or a shorter drive...

We are a training company and we choose Indeco Resort Mahabalipuram for our Residential program. The resort was a perfect place for our group of 15 people. It was a very calm and the Royal Dome House which we choose was very spacious and comfortable. We also found the breakfast a fantastic treat and the lunch was carefully chosen to suit our requirements.

The beach access was also very good and we could spend a lot of time using the space.

There is a great sense to preserve ecology and every inch of this of the resort reflects that.

The live music played by a blind musician in the restaurant in the evenings was so moving.

A great place to stay if you visit Mahabalipuram

Room Tip: The Royal Dome house is a Grand place to stay..

The restaurant of Indeco hotel is named as Pongamiya. At the entrance of the restaurant two bells are hung for customers to give feedback.Ring the small bell if your experience is good.Otherwise the big bell.We ,a family of six had lunch there on a hot Sunday afternoon.They charge Rs.300+taxes for the vegetarian buffet.The food was average with hard tandoori roti (inspite of keeping in the hot vessel) ,veg biriyani and some dishes.Curries had a dominating tamarind taste,perhaps a local speciality,The Kesari bath and vanilla ice cream were good.The natural surroundings is an attraction for this place.Yes,my son struck the smaller bell of Pongamiya.

We planned this place due t heritage property n close t Shore Temple. Front office was great so is the restaurant staffs. Foods need great improvement xcept brfast which is great. Room was not very well done,gloomy,poor toilet status n unpreparedness shocked Us. Very gloomy entrance, needs great effort to mk it a great property as its vast n litl effort can see a change. Eco tourism is a great concept but betterment is needed t classify it under that. Beach was close so is d Shore Temple. That was an advantage truly. We had xperienced good thunderstorm n massive rain n that also made d property went off d hook too. Illumination needs a lot improvmnt too. No nearby good restaurants too. No tea coffee maker in d room. Wifi at lobby only.
