Luxurious experience of missing past comforts
Posted Jun 11, 2016
The property is a beautifully restored old Chettiar home. The bedrooms had the look and feel of the past, but also the inadequacies: no coffee/tea making in the room, no refrigerator. The property is cosy and boutique-like, with only 15 rooms - which is too few to have a liquor licence. So you can't enjoy a beer on a hot day. The service is also slow, since the kitchen is far from the three locations at which meals are served. So, if you think modern comforts and rapid service are essential in a place you'd like to call home in this arid locale, this hotel isn't for you. However, if you want to experience life as it was a century ago in a wealthy Chettiar home, this is fabulous.
