Tamil Bangala In Kumbakonam Near Tagore

Crafted out of Three villages, an Hindu village, a Muslim village and a village of Dhimmmars…Iron smiths who produced arms and ammunition for the great Chola Kingdom.

INDeco hotels, Swamimalai is an ideal place to stay at while visiting destinations like Kumbakonam, Trichy, Tanjore, Chidambaram, Chettinad, Vellankanni, the Navagraha temples in Kumbakonam and Unesco Monuments in the region. The house of the late Hindu pontiff, Sankaracharya of Kanchi is also a part of this hotel. The hotel is a confluence of leisure, heritage, health, nature, aesthetics, spirituality, fine arts and fun. The inhouse Indian Heritage Museum here is accredited by the American Association of Museums. It is not just a destination but truly a paradise by itself.

The furniture in the hotel are made of polished rosewood in the traditional style. The hotel is nearly plastic free and has been restored carefully, maintaining the aesthetics of the place and the tradition. The staff at INDeco hotels Swamimalai are clad in traditional ‘White Khadi’ which is spun in the village -a confluence of Tradition and Technology.

The warmth and culture of the place makes us feel at home and always look forward to visit them. For nothing obvious or boring could ever be found within their aura.

Guest welcome at Swamimalai is not just a ritual but a warm and unique experience. The welcoming of guests with the saffron tilak, cold towel, foot massage and welcome drink if endearing and soulfully draws one to the place. Apart from the staff, there are times when deer joins in for the welcome.
