The Taj in Madurai is a special place. It reeks of old world charm, a seemly time when things moved slower and more genteel. Taking a break here is a pleasure from breakfast to bed, with fantastic wooded grounds and a pool overlooking ancient and modern Madurai far below. Wonderful helpful staff, friendly and great supporters of the work the hotel does to encourage local and rural tourism development projects.
Best Experience: It was our wedding anniversary and the hotel not only baked a cake for my wife and I, they even arranged the band to play "Congratulations" during our wonderful dinner. As we looked out over the lights of the city and the temples in the distance, it could not have been better.
This is an incredible spot to stay for a business/recreation guest to the city. The Hotel is situated in extremely quiet environment in the midst of nature on a hillock and offers beautiful perspective of the city and world renowned Sri Meenakshi Temple. The climate is totally extraordinary and visitors are taken care of extremely well by the management and staff of Gateway Pasumalai. Whilst it offers staggering perspective of the city, be prepared to utilize the stairs. This property is not for the elderly or wheelchair visitors. Contingent upon your room area, you can hope to move around 4 to 5 levels just to get to the anteroom There are various Peacocks meandering in the Lawns and pathways of the hotel. One likes to come back over and over to appreciate unmatchable appeal of this spot.
I visited this hotel for a relaxation trip with my friends. The hotel is located in the main city center. Bus stand is nearby the hotel. This hotel is a standard traditional hotel. Complimentary breakfast was served in the hotel. The visit was in the month of October. The appearance of the hotel was good looking. The room allotted in the hotel was good with facilities. The staffs and services were good in the hotel. There was no delay in check in and check out process. In walk able distance there are many facilities available.
One of the best hotels in Madurai their food and hospitality is amazing the way they present their food is mind blowing one of the sweetest spots in Madurai, the only disadvantage is they don't advertise their hotel so people new to city will fins difficulty to get know by the hotel.
This hotel is located in a small hill called Pasumalai on the way to Thiruparankundram. Once considered to be out of town, with the expanding city, it is now well within the city limits! This hotel was managed by the Taj group, not sure if it has changed hands now! Any ways, this place lives true to the Taj's excellent hospitality standards! The hotel staff are extremely professional and the service they offer will leave you amazed. The food here is also good, obviously expensive because it is a 5 star hotel. From a long time, this place used to be for VIPs visiting Madurai. I have seen Kapil Dev here once!
