It is a resort that is located just outside the city of Madurai. It's extremely beautiful. They are colonial bungalows that have been converted into apartments, some of these villas have private swimming pools, which in this heat is perfect for cooling you down. The appartments are quite large with a large window overlooking the private pool. The bathroom, also made of glass communicates with the pool. Being a 5 star hotel I should mention the electrics, the television cables were a bit wrong, for it to work you had to move the TV, and the lightwent on and off quite often. The hotel has a nice swimming pool which is very original, like sacred ponds. It has several restaurants, a cafe, gym, spa and manicured gardens
In India there are only two types of hotels: mega luxurious, super expensive and ... the other, well, this is one of the others. Simple, cozy, friendly, clean. Anything more? It's for sleeping. It has TV with millions of channels, air conditioning 'on demand', that is if you want to rent the remote control. A piece of advice: rent it or be in a sauna! It also has a computer with Internet access in the broom closet. Yes, in the broom closet. You're in India, remember. Nothing is the same here. The neighborhood is not chic, but is near the airport and its inhabitants are the nicest, most humble people east of the Mississippi.
