Heritage Madurai is a tranquil, low-rise resort, originally designed by Geoffrey Bawa, in his tropical modernism-style and blends the inside with the outside.
Heritage Madurai is located in central Madurai, a short distance from Thousand Pillar Hall and the Gandhi Memorial Museum.
Spacious, airy rooms with detailed sitting areas, luxurious bedrooms and unbelievably vast bathrooms, all decorated with understated elegance. Light fittings have all been cleverly transformed: a riveting piece that once was a lantern; another, a carriage light; an old diya in new avatar, and the pièce de résistance: a sun deck in each villa, that opens out into your own private plunge pool. There is a large outdoor swimming pool, spa and yoga on site.
Visit the temple which forms the heart and lifeline of the 2500 year old city. The complex houses 14 magnificent Gopurams or towers including two golden Gopurams for the main deities.
