We arrived at this hotel in the middle of the night not knowing what to expect. Looking at the town, our expectations were quite low since it is a town of worship. However, we were very impressed with the illuminated walls leading to the main gate. That wasn't even the highlight, upon entering the premises we realized that the hotel building was nowhere within our eyesight. Gripped with curiosity, I realized that there's more to this hotel than meets the eye while we climbed up slope towards the top of a hill. After a good 10-15 minutes we finally had the building in front of us and we were quite awestruck. The beautiful architecture took you to a different era. One would feel as if they are back in the Colonial era with English designs The hotel offers a wide variety of flora(you'll find the various species labelled) and a lot of peacocks. Night walks in the premises can prove to be quite scary and beautiful at the same time. You'll feel so close to nature and all the sounds produced by crickets and sources can be eerie at times. But there is nothing to worry about as the campus is secure. The hotel provides various recreational options like a swimming pool, gym, tennis court etc. The pool area is at this sort of a landing from where you can see all of Madurai and it is such a pretty sight. That is definitely the feature that made me a complete fan of the hotel. I cannot describe the view but I can definitely furnish the readers with pictures to judge for themselves Now coming to the food, it was hands down brilliant. I had the best chicken chettinad I have ever had and the rest of the food we ordered was very pleasing to the palette as well. Their terrace restaurant again offers a wonderful view and serves delicious food. You can look at the beautiful peacocks as they play while you eat Couple of cons I'd like to include in order to even out my pro biased review:. 1) Room service takes a lot of time. (But that is understandable as the buildings are quite spread out and there is a lack of lift in some wings) . 2) the place is infested by mosquitoes but I guess that's a price you have to pay in order to be so close to nature All in all, I had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend people to stay at this Hilltop Marvel.
We were here at this Hotel for two nights on 20th and 21st November 2015 in connection with a marriage. Of my cousin. We stayed at Room No. 15. Other family members occupied Room Nos. 14, 16, 31 and 2. The rooms are clean and spacious. All rooms are surrendered by beautiful garden all round This hotel is about 2 kms from the main road and situated on Pasumalai hill. This 5 star Hotel is spread over 62 acres of land with beautiful landscape gardens. Though the rooms are scattered, the overall view of all the rooms are excellent. From the top of the hill, we can see the whole city of Madurai looking great particularly in the night when the lights are on There are Peacocks moving freely in the Hotel, giving a great feeling for the Hotel stayers. Buffet breakfast is good with a variety of choices of South Indian and Continental. The staff are good with pleasing manners We enjoyed our stay here with a morning walk around and spent a good time outside the restaurant after dinner. Cool breeze up the hill was so pleasant and it was a wonderful experience for all of us It is rather difficult to locate the hotel as the same is not seen from the road. The road stretch is about 2 Kms from the entrance. But it is a well noted for all local cab drivers.
A pleasant drive amid lush greenery takes you to the reception at the Taj Gateway in Pasumalai, Madurai. The trees, plants, and lawns as well as the peacocks that are wandering around make for a relaxing atmosphere and it is easy to forget that you are in a bustling city As the cottage style buildings are located on top of the little hillock, the noise of the main road is behind you, or so I thought, till evening when the loudspeakers in the base of the hill got going While the buildings, wooden flooring and the furniture take you back to colonial times, the spacious rooms are very modern. All mod cons are at hand, comfortable beds and seating, a writing desk, good air conditioning and lighting, TV with most channels that you normally need, coffee/tea making facility and a mini bar (stocked with soft drinks and beer). The wardrobe contained an umbrella and a yoga mat not only do they have yoga lessons at the fitness center, but one of the channels on the TV is dedicated to teaching you the asanas. The bathrooms are well appointed with all the necessary toiletries One negative charging more than two gadgets can be a problem the plug points next to the bed are easily accessible but the other two, placed behind the writing desk, are tough to get at You may have to climb a few steps to get to the restaurant or the lobby and bar. I had to climb about 22 steps each time to reach the restaurant. If you have a problem with your knees, better to ask for a room at an easier to reach level. The hotel has a swimming pool, tennis court and spa. The colonial themed harvey bar, is a nice place to relax with one of their reasonably priced cocktails. The restaurant serves fairly good food with buffets that offer good spreads without getting too lavish. The service is good and friendly as expected in a Taj property, this is the best place to stay in Madurai, if you are here for business or pleasure.
I did not face any difficulty in reach the hotel and no idea about the bus stand distance. The hotel surrounding is good it is very huge property. To tell about food, really maintained good especially their clean and hygienically maintenance is awesome. There were many activities organized by the hotel management. There was a good temple view from the hotel room as well. The interior look was spacious with good furnishing and exterior look was very good. The staff members were extremely professional and quick in their service. It was a family occasion trip and I have very much satisfied with the housekeeping performance. The money, which I spent, was valuable for this hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel for other travellers.
The location was on the outskirts of the city on a hilly area with beautiful gardens and about 20-25 odd peacocks sighted within hotel garden area. Staff were very courteous, food was excellent and also other facilities like library, swimming pools etc. Were very good. Hotel rooms were very good including bedding mattresses, bed sheets, other amenities like TV and Fridge were also of best quality. Ideally two days are good enough to enjoy. Parking facility was also good and all temples and city can be accessed easily.
