We booked ahead The Gateaway Hotel at Pasumalai, as the first accommodation in our two weeks South India tour. It was like a peaceful heaven above all the hassle of Madurai (a charming and heart-beating city). It was so nice to have a peaceful and delightful breakfast at the restaurant, than drive into the action at city center, markets and...

Enjoyed the biz trip like never before. Green surroundings, the fearless peacocks, squirrels, wake up call by the birds...the list could be even longer. A very well maintained property has TAJ brand stamped all over, on every thing. Only question, why there is only one restaurant with limited choice of food ?

Stayed here as part of a group. The room was clean and comfortable, restaurant very good. Lots of breakfast choices. Beautiful view of the city, as it's located high on a hill. You can't walk anywhere without a trek, but that was OK for us, since the group went in a bus.

Excellent Property with great service. The location of the hotel on top of a hillock in the midst of nature is outstanding. The view of the city from the property is too good. Once you enter the hotel property you forget the din & bustle of a bustling city. The service is also excellent. Thoroughly enjoyable experience and highly recommended.
