My first ever experience of Living in a heritage town that had huge mansions 200+ years old. Walking those streets were an experience. Visalam is one of those converted into a heritage hotel. Even though right in heart of the village its stil qaint and huge on character. Rooms were large, courtyards were superb, poolside was lovely and food / service was most impressive. We felt like we were at home rather than in some hotel. Thali and Plantain leaf meals were the highlights cuisinewise.

We had a brief 24 hour stop at CGH Visalam and just wished we had stayed longer. While we were there we did the evening village walk to see local mansions, ate a local Chettinad dinner by the pool, did an early morning bike ride, and a 3 hour tour of neighbouring villages, seeing the inside of mansions as well a local market and tile making. Karthika was an excellent guide in all respects - knows her topic, paced the tours well, and was very kind to our family of 2 adults, 3 teenagers. Dont be put off by summer - the activities are well timed to capture cooler parts of the day, leaving time to rest by the pool or sit in the many charming areas of the hotel. It was an unforgettable experience and we cant wait to return!

Prologue : This is going to be a mini travelogue, which will include reviews of the hotel. I had stayed at CGH Earth Visalam at Kanadukathan last weekend with my family. We drove from Chennai and landed there to receive a warm welcome. Mr Ramanathan at the front desk did a quick check in and had us escorted to a large and spacious room. The room was absolutely charming, with a balcony, plenty of wooden furniture and a modern bathroom. What I really loved was the lack of plastic anywhere in the premises. We had 2 veg thalis (Rs 450 each) and a non veg thali (Rs 650) for lunch. Though we were supposed to have informed in advance that we needed lunch, since it was off season with just us and one more lady from Poland in the entire hotel, the staff were kind enough to put together lunch for us. Service during the lunch was very good, and the lunch was served at the poolside, which was lovely! The lunch itself was decent, but not spectacular. No complaints at all, but nothing to rave about. I specifically liked the kara kozhambu and vegetable mandi, my wife like the curd and my son liked the fish fry. There was a cooking demonstration at 4pm, where the chef patiently explained how to make kuzhi paniyaram Chettinad style, and we got to eat the paniyaram that was made. The chef was kind enough to let my son try his hand at making a few, which absolutely delighted him. We then played a game of carrom in the recreation area. This was followed by a walking tour of Kanadukathan, guided by Ms Kavitha. I need to write this about our guide - she was very knowledgeable about the area's history, patiently answered our questions and showed us building in nooks and corners of the town which we otherwise would have struggled to explore by ourselves. We were lucky as there was a light drizzle throughout our guided walk which brought down the temperature considerably. The evening was spent watching a bit of IPL - there's a common TV in the recreation area, and no TV in the rooms. Rooms have WiFi though. The next morning we had breakfast at the hotel which was inclusive of the room rent. We had the option of South Indian breakfast or cereals. We chose the former. My son had a masala omelette made for him which he said was superb. The South Indian breakfast was quite good (ragi puttu, sweet seeyan and Pongal) and we washed them down with coffee. We then proceeded for the paid guided tour of nearby towns. Charges were Rs 1000 per couple and free for my son. Ms Kavitha was again our guide and we left in our car. We visited a floor tile making factory at Athangudi where we got to see how a tile is made. This was followed by a tour to Pallathur where we were shown several huge houses built in the Chettinad style, and even one built in the Gothic style. These were not houses, these were mansions, palaces even! The affluent Chettiyars in the early 1900s had built these with decor imported from countries like Italy, Austria and the UK. A photgrapher's paradise. Also visited an Ayyanar temple and a village that was fully protected by CCTV cameras as most houses there were said to contain loads of jewellery! We were famished by the time the tour ended, and requested our guide to lead us to a good hotel in Karaikudi town. She took us to Friends hotel, where the non vegetarian meals were a specialty. The food was excellent and economically priced. Dont expect upscale interiors though. We drove to the Pillayarpatti temple in the evening, and then my son and I played a game of chess at the recreation area in the hotel. The next morning, we went for a visit to a government owned cattle & goat farm to sight peacocks. The idea was to go by bicycle that the hotel provides, but since we had not driven a bicycle in ages and weren't too confident of riding one now, we opted to go by our car. Ms Kavitha was again our guide and she led us to the farm where we had to park the car outside and take a walk inside (bicycles are allowed inside). When we were told there are peacocks here, we thought if we are lucky we might see one or two of them. But were we in for a surprise! I've never seen so many peacocks in my life! There were atleast 15-20 of them all around - up the trees, walking on the ground, standing near cows, up the roof of the stables. Some even postured for us with their plumage spread out! An amazing experience! Took plenty of photos and came back with a smile on our faces. Our trip was finally over and we had a smooth and swift checkout. Again it was Mr Ramanathan at the front desk and he asked us to visit again. Paid by credit card and took a photo with the staff before we said our goodbyes and left. A most memorable trip, made possible by the superb service, fantastic hotel and charming Chettinad towns! Sathya J.

Very homely stay with very kind staff never experienced before. Didnt have mind to checkout. Very spacious rooms and food is awesome. Good guided tour to Chettinad. Would prefer to relax here at least once a year.

Place: Art Deco era beautiful building with a very nice swimming pool & pool side tables for serving food. There is a beautiful bougainville pathway where they serve breakfast & it's such a cozy place. There is a small reading room with a vintage radio & some board games in the ground floor. Rooms: 204 was the best & most spacious by a mile. There are 2 adjacent rooms to this mega room & it's far bigger than a typical 1bhk. The AC works well & the fan is vintage model. Bathroom is very big with a separate bath area . Handwash is missing though but soaps ,oil & shampoo arevthere with a nice towel stand. Welcoming you into the property is a small ritual itself Food: pretty good service here & chef Robert, Saranya & Malaysami make all efforts to make you what you need within the constraints of a limited menu. Overall is a very quaint place with good service & a nice stay. Go explore !
