Each room has been refurbished in a beautiful blend of South Indian and colonial fashion, but the art deco facades that have been left untouched, are a feast for the eyes. Contemporary amenities can be enjoyed within Visalam and a gorgeous swimming pool provides respite after a blistering day out. Traditionally created meals can be enjoyed in designated areas indoors as well as on the terrace overlooking Chettinad’s glorious temples, mansions, bustling artisan workshops and daily life in the historic township.
