InDeco perfect place in Mamalapuram

Posted Jan 24, 2018 on Hotels
InDeco is an amazing idea--- half local history half a beautiful social experiment to help people and animals. This property is not as fabulously interesting as the original InDeco at Swamimalai although fun and funky, and the food is superior. The location-- within seeing distance of the Shore Temple-- can't be beat for seeing the Pallava monuments in Mamalapuram/ Mahabalipuram.

Quirky and fantastic staff

Posted Feb 12, 2017 on Hotels
My colleagues and I were attending a conference at a nearby hotel. The staff here are very friendly, nothing is too much trouble..they will go the extra mile for you. This is not a modern hotel but it is very quirky and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, thank you

Great location

Posted Jan 25, 2015
Enjoyed our stay. The place is a bit old fashioned and a bit quaint. It has attractive grounds, good pool and is well located. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Nice property, but not well maintained

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: Room size, location
Cons: Management should spend more on the upkeep of this place.
Indeco Mahabalipuram has a very good location close to the beach and the shore temple. But maintenance is not up to the mark. We stayed in Room 401, which is a dome suite (very big) that comfortably accommodated 2+2. The swimming pool was not very clean, the pathways were not well lit at night. The feeling one gets is of being in a very old place. Food isn't great either.

Quaint but very comfortable and simple

Posted Mar 12, 2014 on Hotels
Indeco Mahabilipuram is right in the middle of things, the beach is just a 5 min walk down the path, the ancient monuments are all within walking distance. The hotel itself is very quaint and simple, but has all comforts a middle class hotel would need to provide. Some of the things were a bit run down, e.g. the pool table, the table tennis table, etc, but lets face it, when you go to Mahabs you need to enjoy the beach or the monuments and probably not the TT table or Pool table.. The place was neat and clean, the food was simple, choice limited, but decent enough for a good meal. For the budget conscious, you will get everything you want with no regrets.

Quirky and relaxing

Posted Jan 26, 2014 on Hotels
This is right out of the set of the Exotic Marigold Hotel-feels like it went to sleep in 1970 and woke up with a layer of dust all of it. We loved it, a bit quirky but a Great location, plenty of garden space, fantastic for our boys as it had a trampoline, seesaw, table tennis and pool! the breakfast was fantastic, we got treated to a full Indian breakfast on our first morning, the best dosa ever! the perfect start to our time in India as it was gentle, quiet and in a nice little town

Lost Opportunity

Posted Dec 18, 2013 on Hotels
Was very disappointed. I should have listened more carefully to the criticisms online for this hotel on hotels.com. I know this area well, but it was my first time staying in this hotel, though I had used the pool there before. I couldn't believe how shabby it has become. Nonsense about being some 'natural creation' and 'eco-friendly' - just a poor excuse for shabby. It could be great if they repair it. Filthy around the food area at breakfast (and I travel in India a lot, so well used to local standards). Pool was nice, but, again, could do with maintenance. Staff not very friendly when I pointed out that I asked for a quiet room but given a plastic roofed 'shed' in a monsoon rain-storm -the loudest room ever!
