Take a step back in time with the Heritage Madurai and marvel at the former British Coat’s Madurai Club, remodelled into a stylish hotel.
Designed by the renowned Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa, the property is an oasis of 17-acres of lush green gardens with private villas.
Recently restored to its full glory, the building shows off its restorative roots by polishing the original local materials; honey-coloured stone sourced from the nearby hills and an abandoned mill, and support pillars from old derelict houses.
Today the Heritage Madurai is a sought after property and the perfect base to explore the temples of India’s oldest city from.
The Heritage Madurai has a range of accommodations on offer, from comfortable deluxe club rooms to luxurious villas complete with outdoor showers and their own plunge pool.
The main swimming pool on the property is uniquely styled to resemble a step-well water tank, with examples of these wells found in both Thirumalai and Meenakshi Amman Temples.
The 200 year old Banyan tree shades the main restaurant, which serves a cuisine of Indian and international dishes, and nearby is the Swig & Tee Bar, decorated in colonial club style and complete with virtual golf simulator.
