The wonderful CGH chain have created another exquisite heritage hotel in the Chettinad region of Tamil Nadu, just north of Madurai. Centred on a colonnaded courtyard, the old merchant’s mansion itself has been painstakingly restored in earthy, understated style. But the architecture is only part of the experience. Take a stroll through the local market to watch weavers, stone carvers and jewellers at work. Visit ancient temples, clan shrines and antique shops in the town, or learn the secrets of the region’s famously spicy cuisine on a three-day cookery course. In short, Visalam provides an atmospheric retreat deep in a traditional, rural heartland of the far south.
