There aren't many hotel options in this part of Tamil Nadu and Paradise Resort is probably as good as anything you are going to find in this area. This is a good base for exploring Trichy, Tanjavore and other towns in the area.
Rooms are reasonably clean and beds are comfy.
Lots of service problems:
Hot water stopped working
Telephone in room didn't work
No bottled water in room
Room not cleaned for two days
When I spoke with the front desk there would invariably be lots of running around and promises to fix everything. But no action. Eventually things were sorted out.
This is an amazing place to see birds.
Food in the restaurant is good and the staff is helpful and friendly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Paradise Resort is centrally located for 3 world Heritage UNESCO Monuments and all Navagraha and other important temples. With great ambience built on south Indian rich heritage style, spread in around 12 acres of vast lush and greenery, situated in a Highway and ends at River view is indeed one of its kind to offer you Culture and Pilgrim tour combined with complete relaxation and rejuvenationParadise Resort is a Government of India approved 3 star property on the Tanjore Highway at a five minute distance from Darasuram Iravadeeshwarar temple (World Heritage UNESCO Monument). Situated amidst lush lawns and plenty of greenery the resort is a retreat for the tired traveler. The resort comes from the belief that south Indian tradition culture and heritage which has got a rich legacy has to be promoted and therefore we have made our spacious rooms in traditional ambience. With 150 year old antique doors in each of the rooms the furniture with intricate work of teak wood again transports one to an era of life of the south Indians those days. But again the spacious bathroom in each of the rooms has a bathtub or a cubicle and is very sophisticated. The Restaurant with arches and windows of the yesteryears and tables and chairs with work and craftsmanship of Burmese teak is a feast for the eyes. The resort is known for its food which again depicts a lot of traditional elements in its cuisine. The massive swimming pool is again a highly relaxing place. The very attractive and appealing swimming pool is done up with the latest Italian glass tiles. The view from the 6 pool view rooms is breathtaking.Our new additions are the river view cottages again done in traditional style and having awesome ambience. We are also supported by a village behind the property; guests can be taken for a village walk in which more than getting to see village houses and their lifestyle, there is a village temple with big Iyyanar statues (village security god). Bullock cart rides to temples near by, excursions to Weaving industry, pottery making, and bronze making industry can also be done.Other activities could be fishing in the river, visit to agricultural fields and showing the process of cultivation. Organization of lots of traditional games inside the resort would be an added pleasure.Cultural performances like folk dances which are very special to the localite like thappattam (a traditional Tamil dance) is also done. A lot of work goes into more innovative activities to make the stay more than pleasurable a memorable one. ... more less
