Madurai accommodation - Heritage Madurai
In the 1970’s the world renowned Sri Lankan architect was asked to design a club house for the senior staff of a large thread making company. The result was the Madura Coats Club, constructed around an older building from locally quarried honey-coloured stone, stone floors from an old mill, antique pillars and gates from the nearby Chettinad region. A further extension has been added recently by one of Bawa’s disciples to create a fabulous heritage hotel with a contemporary twist.
The focal point of the new addition is the gorgeous Temple Tank Swimming Pool which draws its inspiration from a nearby temple. The original club house itself was transformed into the main guest facility consisting of a restaurant, coffee shop, bar and library. There are 72 rooms with wooden floors, wooden furniture, and Indian rugs with a lovely outlook on to the 17 acres of grounds and trees.
