Beautiful hotel, attentive staff and wonderful history Beautiful hotel, attentive staff and wonderful history

by djhunter77 on November 10, 2016

Visalam is a simply stunning hotel. It was built in 1939 as a wedding gift for the daughter of a wealthy banker but was never lived in and laid empty for around 60 years. It is now a small hotel. The room was massive, clean and comfortable. There isn't a mini bar or television in the rooms but drinking water is provided. Internet access was also available if a little slow (you are in rural India after all). The food was delicious and the pool lovely to cool off in. The staff were so friendly and attentive. If anything, one or two were a little too attentive sometimes lingering at the table after talking to you. We wandered around the village to see all abandoned villas which was an interesting experience. Would definitely recommend Visalam for a stay. A nice touch was when all the staff came to wave goodbye as we left.

a wonderful surprise a wonderful surprise

we came to this hotel from Pondicherry, fleeing the monsoon floods in 2015 it is a beautiful place with gracious staff and lovely rooms The turn down service included making pictures of flowers on the bed with petals and leaves - exquisite the walk through town in the evening was lovely and it is a place worth seeing - quiet and gracious - and very friendly we also had a cooking class which was good fun dinner outside on the balcony in a silky Indian night was magical and the food was great all in all a wonderful and unexpected experience

A very special place A very special place

We have stayed here twice, and love it. The building is beautiful, as you would expect from something built by the Chettinars who bought the best of the best from around the world. The staff are a delight, and took such pleasure in our enjoyment of their stunning hotel. Breakfast outdoors with the local cockerel serenading, dinner on the roof terrace with friendly like minded people who, like us, felt privileged to be able to experience this amazing place. Take the bullock cart ride, enjoy the tea cart- and an early morning solo swim is just a delight. See you all in March 2017, can't wait!

I am a huge fan of CGH EARTH HOTELS and my stay at the Visalam only reinforced my positive orientation. Small, Cosy, Clean and SUPERB Hotel......Mr Febin Thomas and every one in his team embody the values of the company as they go quietly about making Guests feel truly at home. If there is a TRULY RESPONSIBLE HOSPITALITY ENTERPRISE in India, it is CGH EARTH.....I was very impressed by all of the Hotel's initiatives to reduce their carbon footprint. I was meant to check out after 2 nights and extended by another 2 nights :-)

Charming delightful stay Charming delightful stay

After a 5 hr road journey from Pondicherry, entering through the gates of Visalam felt like we had stumbled upon a movie set - transported to a bygone era where gentility was the rule of the day. The staff of Visalam greeted us with warm smiles on the steps of this glorious art deco mansion where we were sprinkled with fragrant rose water, garlanded with beautifully scented jasmine flowers & ushered into a cosy drawing rooms aptly decorated with a distinct 1940's vibe (which was when the mansion was built). Consisting of 15 spacious rooms - our group was allocated a room on the ground floor & on the upper level which was in fact the former masterbedroom (#204)with its own lobby, ante room & spacious ensuite. Beautifully furnished & very comfortable - the lack of a TV was actually quite welcome. The grounds are beautifully mantained & large swim pool surrounded by bougainvilleas were very soothing. Meals are served in various locations - breafast in the garden, lunch poolside & dinner on the upper level terrace. Only the bedrooms are airconditioned so cool cotton clothings are the best gard to wear as you literally float through your days here - almost dreamlike. Evening walks, morning bike rides are organized & conducted by the charming front office staff & we were particularly impressed with CD who we found very accommodating & knowledgeable about the area. We spent 2 nights here & the mornings exploring village life & lazy afternoons by the pool. What sets Visalam apart from most other places we have stayed is the impeccable service. Every staff member was welcoming & nothing was ever too much trouble. The price of a trip down memory lane staying & dining at Visalam does not come cheap but is worth every cent as it is an experience like no other. Simply splendid & kudos to Febin Thomas & his lovely team for doing such a wonderful job. As we departed & waved goodbye to the charming staff as they gathered on the steps waving farewell - one almost felt teary...... If there was any criticism - wifi is not stable but we were informed that something was being done about this. And due to some licensing restrictions - Visalam cannot sell alcohol so stock up on nice wines before you arrive! Loved staying here & would return just to be spoilt & pampered again. Oh....& a spa in the hotel offering massages would really complete the picture!
