Madurai accommodation - Gateway Hotel Pasumalai

Gateway Hotel Pasumalai

After exploring the fascinating but noisy and hectic sites of Madurai this Taj hotel perched on top of Pasumalai hill offers a peace and calm at the end of the day. From the garden terrace there are distant views of the city below and a gentle breeze carries its sounds from afar.

The original colonial building containing the reception area and a few simple rooms is full of character. This accommodation is supplemented by 63 spacious and comfortable but slightly old-fashioned rooms in various buildings in the grounds, linked by paths and steps up and down the hillside. The beautiful gardens, filled with exotic plants and birdsong are impeccably maintained but the service in other departments is rather haphazard.

The restaurant offers a choice of regional and Indian cuisine, and limited continental dishes but the service can be slow. Enjoy a drink and watch the strutting peacocks or twinkling lights of the city below in the evening.
