We stayed at the Bangala along with two other groups of family friends.
Two positive aspects of Bangala are: delicious food and the well-maintained swimming pool.
However, We were disappointed by absence of intercom (therefore we couldn’t order our morning tea or for that matter connect with the staff and our friends). Since we were with our friends, we did not mind absence of TV in our room. The cot was small sized (for a couple), beds were hard and the pillows harder. The window airconditioner didn’t work and didn’t have a remote either. The toilet (closet) is wrongly installed in Room 10.

All rooms are air conditioned and with attached bathrooms. Amenities include a swimming pool, gym, massage center , library, cycling, etc. Chettinad is a small area accessible from Madurai, Trichy, Tanjore and Rameswaram. It is the homeland of a Nattukottai Chettiar community, a community that made huge fortunes in south east Asia during colonial rule. These fortunes were used to build amazing mansions over the past 200 years, that evolved in style and scale, and needs to be seen to be appreciated. It is a little known destination but should not be missed. ... more less
