The Hotel – Traditional setting with a touch of modernity
If you're after a slow-paced escape rich with heritage, culture and food, look no further than Chidambara Vilas. An ode to the Chettiars – the mercantile community of Tamil Nadu, known for its lavish mansions and temples – Chidambara Vilas promises to make your stay unforgettable. Take a break from city life and head to the rural region of Chettinad in Tamil Nadu and immerse yourself in its rich culture and heritage as you discover the true roots of Chettinad cuisine.
Chidambara Vilas is a 116-year-old palatial mansion that authentically showcases the luxurious Chettinad lifestyle of the last century. The efforts of the three-year restoration can be seen in the jaw-dropping exteriors, colourful walls adorned with Hindu gods and goddesses and many ornate figurines. If the exteriors wow you, wait until you experience the interiors. Colonial architecture, long corridors flaunting rich paintings, antique furniture: everything evokes the vibes of an era gone by.
The Heritage Double Room is like a trip back in time with its four-poster rosewood bed, beamed roofing, wooden paneling and alluring Athangudi tiled flooring. Vintage accessories dot the room along with handpicked paintings. The perfect amalgamation of ancient heritage and contemporary amenities, the room also comes complete with an HD TV, refrigerator, a bathroom with a bath and shower cubicle, a study table and large wardrobes.
