Staying here was one of our highlights during our India trip. If you're doubting about booking this place, please make sure you're staying 2 nights (and not 1).

Lakeside is located on the banks of a reservoir and at the base of the Palni hills. The excellent food, beautiful view, pool, and excellent management make this a wonderful weekend away from the bustle of South india. They offer village tours to see the local school, pottery, thatching, and brick making.
