Indeco Hotel- Swamimali Reviews
Indeco Swamimalai is a charming resort with an unworldly feel about it. At the same time it offers all the modern amenities one would want when on a holiday. I fell in love with the sprawling green property, the wonderful restoration work of each of the houses that has preserved the essence of the village they were once a part of. The museum, the animals, the rooms, the myriad idols and paintings that adorn the lanes and houses - often taking you by surprise.. All this coupled with the warmth and hospitality of the staff - are aspects that make me want to go back there sometime soon, hopefully with family. For a solo traveller, it is a great place that makes you feel safe and comfortable with arrangements for taxi/auto travel if required.
The location of the hotel was easy to approach. The staffs at the hotel were kind. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was very good. The ambiance at the hotel was clean. The food which they prepared for me was good in taste and the quality was great. The hotel had served only vegetarian food. The activities like swimming pool, gym, spa, etc. were not arranged by the hotel. The room provided to me was well furnished. All the amenities in the room were functioning well. The bathroom was tidy. I didn’t see any special view from my balcony. The hot and cold water facility was provided by the hotel. I would recommend this hotel for other travellers.
I travelled to Swamimalai and stayed in this hotel. It was convenient to locate the hotel and it was close to the temple. The staff members in the hotel were helpful, hygienic and quick in services. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was classic. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The room allotted to me was spacious and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition. I ate food in the hotel and the food was very spicy, and the price was affordable. Overall, the destination and stay in the hotel was good and I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.
Indeco Hotels, is nestled in beautiful natural surroundings. There are private verandahs attached to rooms. A best weekend getaway for people in around Kumbakonam. A unique museum showcasing relics of age old Tamil Culture and times of British India. Well-maintained rooms and a wonderful restaurant. Authentic south Indian meal in lunch is lip smackingly tasty. A swimming pool, open greenery adds to the beauty of the resort. Friends, family & couple all will find this place nice. A stay of 1-2 nights is enough to relax. The place is a real rural retreat, and has pet animals wandering round, coconut trees with birds in the mornings, sculptures dotted about the grounds and an overall air of great tranquility and as they say, harmony. Overall good hospitality, nice food and a wonderful natural ambience
This property is just superb, the ambience is good. Lots of animals like deer, ducks. We feel good staying here. It looks like a palace. The old rooms in the cottages are also fabulous, the museum here is very nice. We can feel the past time by seeing this. The food is delicious, the staff is good and one can stay here comfortably.
I went there last week with my family. The place is easy to locate with lots of signs right from bye pass. We were greeted by Mr Bala, the manager and check-in was quiet quick. We booked two heritage block deluxe rooms. Typical village like house which we loved. We had a sumptuous and tasty lunch and then Mr. Bala kindly showed us around the resort. Mr. Steve Borgia has taken great efforts to obtain antique pieces and used it functionally around the resorts. Examples are street lamps, doors, dressing table, wardrobes, etc which are real antiques all around the resort. The museum has some great collections. They have preserved one room where Kanchi Maha periyavar did penance even without plastering the walls. Mr.Bala also introduced us to other guests. The rooms in Zameen block and Palace block are quite big and royal. We upgraded to suite in Zameen block since Palace was booked by a marriage party. Zameen block rooms have antique zameendar style rosewood cots which was quite high but very comfy. My daughter enjoyed playing with geese and also fed the deer. We also visited the big goshala behind reception. There was also a classical dance arranged in the evening which my wife enjoyed a lot. Some of the facilities weren't operational like tea kadai and swimming pool but it was OK. Check-out was also quick. We thanked Mr. Bala for a wonderful experience while leaving. I would also like to mention about the staff who have made our stay comfortable and provided a wonderful service for all our requests. When we returned back to Chennai, my daughter asked whether we can go back to the resort. I told her I will take her.
Top Reviews of Indeco Hotel- Swamimali
As you enter the Reception you would understand what you are in for. Every minute detail has been taken care. A heritage resort to the core. Very cordial & friendly service. Only Vegetarian food is available. The rooms are maintained very well but for the Mini Refrigerator which do not work properly and stinks when opened. Service Staff do not disturb you at all while you are in your room. Reasonable tariff for the kind of service we get. I am a regular visitor to the resort and every time I visit I get the same kind of good service. A very good place located amongst trees, plants and other greenery.
We went to this awesome place in March. From the time we drove in and till we cleared out it, we had an incredible time. We stayed in the suite there. Fabulous spot. The eatery was incredible. Sustenance was luxurious. The hosts were exceptionally polite be it the gathering or at the eatery extremely affable and grinning. There can be a different survey on the nourishment at the eatery breakfast, lunch supper and night snacks (highlight of the remain). The good to beat all were the Geese, peacocks and Deers. These kept my children exceptionally occupied. Uncommon notice of the Geese which continues circling the entire place unreservedly. Swimming pool was just as great and clean. We had an amazing time there. When the time had come to leave, the gathering people were speedy and they had the bill prepared in the blink of an eye. It was excessively extraordinary an involvement with this spot. Useful for family visits and remain. They have a gallery which has got an excess of things perhaps they have to have a plain as day stand so that ppl comprehend the way of the ancient rarities. Generally, a marvellous spot to stay and you will need to unquestionably visit once more.
We checked in there by May 15 with our family there. The food served were very good. The Rooms are very clean and nice interiors. One should always love to stay in the room itself. Also backside of the hotel we witnessed some Deer and peacock gives us the feeling of Adventure trip while we were in a religious trip. The services are not bad. Everyone trip with your family, I will recommend this 100% for you. Happy Journey.
I stayed in hotel for two days., The food/service were good., The calam atmosphere of the hotel surroudnings made me more comfortable., The cottage were built similar to our houses in village, which took me to the recollection of my stay in village about forty years ago., Altogether the stay was very good, and eagerly looking forward to get an opportunity to stay in your hotel again.
I use to Stay in this property every January. It is most preferred gateway of my family When you enter the property The bell will ring to alert the house keeping personnel's to inform about your arrival.On arrival you will be offered for a foot massage which is done by professionally trained people. All the people in the resort wearing the traditional dhoties which is reflecting the culture. Definitely it is a good experience which you cannot expect in any other hotels in the world.You will not feel that you are staying in a hotel. Previously they were conducting spiritual programmes which is missing now.You will have a good taste to your tongue through the restaurant inside the property which is good in taste and rich in reflecting our culture. Simply saying.It is a home away from home.
