We came to Madurai for an engagement ceremony of our friend. Before our arrival, we were all so worried about how the weather would be and how would we manage in such hot conditions. Trust me, Madurai is hotter than you could even imagine it to be. Especially from 9am to 3pm - it gets unbearable. However, thanks to the sheer beauty and serenity of this wonderful hotel, we actually forgot about the weather. Such was the beauty of this place. So calm and quiet are the surroundings, one can't hear a sound except for the breeze, the rustling of leaves and ofcourse the cries of the peacocks - which adorn the beauty of the lawn that faces your room. The rooms were nice and comfortable. We also had a nice evening at the pub cum lounge and the service was pretty good. We used the table tennis room as well. Later in the night we went for a long walk around the property which was amazing and the weather also felt good. Not sure if it actually got cooler that time or we just felt like it did. Overall we had a memorable stay, thanks to the peace that prevails around the magnificent property in Madurai that Taj has leased and the view of the whole city from the hilltop. Will definitely look to come back to Madurai just to stay at the Gateway Hotel Pasumalai!
