This resort is just gorgeous,We were so relieved to arrive here and instantly felt relaxed by the tradinonal welcome from the reception like welcoming with a Garland,and right away checking to your room,the way to the resort rooms through the garden is a stunning experience,very well maintained Garden flowers and fruits blooming all over the path way,you feel like you are in a special part of the world,this is all because of the wonderful person behind this it is the Owner Mrs Latha Raman,very well professional,the highlight of the stay was in this busy schedule every day there was a special touch she would meet us and ask how the hotel is catering to your need as well as suggestions, which does not lack in most of the Hotels in India.The management has done a wonderful job in maintaining the thge place according to the will of the Mother nature, the palce is full of character, antique items placed in all the places of the lobby, which add a feel of the tradion of Tamil Nadu.The service was excellent it was above 5 star rating i can offer them, we wish we could have stayed longer, it was really a privilege to stay in this property. The place is full of character like Ducks vegetables grown ,so we can spend a lot of time by enjoying the charm of the place,the sight seeing place are all easily reachable.
The restaurant was really marvelous with the buffet break fast no word to express. If you are planing to go for your relaxed holidays this is the best place, I am sure we will return to this Paradise.Best wishes to the Management and the entire team for looking after us very well, which most of the hotel is India do not have , Keep it up.

I had a great time staying in my own personal bungalow at Paradise Resort! There was always a golf cart, or if not a brahma bull cart, to take us around the campus. I also very much enjoyed the delicious food offered in bubbling traditional clay pots on the buffet. My Ayurvedic massage was quite vigorous, with lots of lovely oil.

We were passing through and I wish we'd had more time to stay here. One of the nicest rooms we've stayed in...with a lovely view from the balcony. Food is more expensive than in other locations we've visited in India...but it was delicious. We didn't have time to try the Ayervadic services, but other travelers we met said that they were great.

We stayed on the Paradise house boat for our annual anniversary vacation. The boat was very clean, hygienic and well maintained. The staff was the most courteous i have ever seen. The guys went all the way to ensure that we had the best vacation ever.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Paradise Resort is centrally located for 3 world Heritage UNESCO Monuments and all Navagraha and other important temples. With great ambience built on south Indian rich heritage style, spread in around 12 acres of vast lush and greenery, situated in a Highway and ends at River view is indeed one of its kind to offer you Culture and Pilgrim tour combined with complete relaxation and rejuvenationParadise Resort is a Government of India approved 3 star property on the Tanjore Highway at a five minute distance from Darasuram Iravadeeshwarar temple (World Heritage UNESCO Monument). Situated amidst lush lawns and plenty of greenery the resort is a retreat for the tired traveler. The resort comes from the belief that south Indian tradition culture and heritage which has got a rich legacy has to be promoted and therefore we have made our spacious rooms in traditional ambience. With 150 year old antique doors in each of the rooms the furniture with intricate work of teak wood again transports one to an era of life of the south Indians those days. But again the spacious bathroom in each of the rooms has a bathtub or a cubicle and is very sophisticated. The Restaurant with arches and windows of the yesteryears and tables and chairs with work and craftsmanship of Burmese teak is a feast for the eyes. The resort is known for its food which again depicts a lot of traditional elements in its cuisine. The massive swimming pool is again a highly relaxing place. The very attractive and appealing swimming pool is done up with the latest Italian glass tiles. The view from the 6 pool view rooms is breathtaking.Our new additions are the river view cottages again done in traditional style and having awesome ambience. We are also supported by a village behind the property; guests can be taken for a village walk in which more than getting to see village houses and their lifestyle, there is a village temple with big Iyyanar statues (village security god). Bullock cart rides to temples near by, excursions to Weaving industry, pottery making, and bronze making industry can also be done.Other activities could be fishing in the river, visit to agricultural fields and showing the process of cultivation. Organization of lots of traditional games inside the resort would be an added pleasure.Cultural performances like folk dances which are very special to the localite like thappattam (a traditional Tamil dance) is also done. A lot of work goes into more innovative activities to make the stay more than pleasurable a memorable one. ... more   less
