It took us about six hours to drive to Paradise resort from Chennai. We were welcomed with a relaxing foot massage. This was so welcome after the long drive! The resort is in two parts. One portion contains all the rooms that are furnished with antique furniture, doorways and artefacts from the old Chettinad homes. These are large rooms with...

Housekeeping needs improvement. We were never welcomed with a welcome drink or a cold towel or a necklace - probably because we checked in past midnight. The staff attitude were not up to my expectation.

Coming from Australia, we were so exciting to travel through Tamil Nadu. Honestly, Paradise Resort was just amazing. It had an old traditional Jaffna Tamil vibe but with a 21st century touch. The whole family just fell in love with the place and we wanted to stay longer. The staff there were top! They helped us with everything we needed...

This hotel is tired and in need of updating especially the electrics. We had a bank of twelve plugs in our room and only half of them worked. We couldn't wait to leave. The rooms are large and would be great if only some money was spent.

We usually stay at one of the city hotels when we visit the city or any of the pilgrimage places around the city of Kumbakonam. Though I had checked the net for this hotel earlier, never really finalized on this resort. This time, after reading the reviews, thought of giving this resort a try this year. And I am really...

A well conceived resort that mixes Tamil traditions with modernity quite well. Kudos to the management for keeping the Tamil flavours alive be it the architecture of the cottages, the atmosphere all over and the food served with affection at the restaurant. Ideally located on the Tanjore Road, the staff are well trained to be customer-centric and delight the guests....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Paradise Resort is centrally located for 3 world Heritage UNESCO Monuments and all Navagraha and other important temples. With great ambience built on south Indian rich heritage style, spread in around 12 acres of vast lush and greenery, situated in a Highway and ends at River view is indeed one of its kind to offer you Culture and Pilgrim tour combined with complete relaxation and rejuvenationParadise Resort is a Government of India approved 3 star property on the Tanjore Highway at a five minute distance from Darasuram Iravadeeshwarar temple (World Heritage UNESCO Monument). Situated amidst lush lawns and plenty of greenery the resort is a retreat for the tired traveler. The resort comes from the belief that south Indian tradition culture and heritage which has got a rich legacy has to be promoted and therefore we have made our spacious rooms in traditional ambience. With 150 year old antique doors in each of the rooms the furniture with intricate work of teak wood again transports one to an era of life of the south Indians those days. But again the spacious bathroom in each of the rooms has a bathtub or a cubicle and is very sophisticated. The Restaurant with arches and windows of the yesteryears and tables and chairs with work and craftsmanship of Burmese teak is a feast for the eyes. The resort is known for its food which again depicts a lot of traditional elements in its cuisine. The massive swimming pool is again a highly relaxing place. The very attractive and appealing swimming pool is done up with the latest Italian glass tiles. The view from the 6 pool view rooms is breathtaking.Our new additions are the river view cottages again done in traditional style and having awesome ambience. We are also supported by a village behind the property; guests can be taken for a village walk in which more than getting to see village houses and their lifestyle, there is a village temple with big Iyyanar statues (village security god). Bullock cart rides to temples near by, excursions to Weaving industry, pottery making, and bronze making industry can also be done.Other activities could be fishing in the river, visit to agricultural fields and showing the process of cultivation. Organization of lots of traditional games inside the resort would be an added pleasure.Cultural performances like folk dances which are very special to the localite like thappattam (a traditional Tamil dance) is also done. A lot of work goes into more innovative activities to make the stay more than pleasurable a memorable one. ... more   less
