Visalam recalls a way of life that was truly extraordinary.
The Chettiar community of this region were prosperous traders who loved the good life.
Their palatial houses were standing testaments to an aesthetic sense that was lofty in its conception and painstaking in its details.
A celebrated residence though it once was, Visalam today is a veritable museum, having preserved almost everything of its original character and interiors from the time it was built almost a century ago. The rooms are large with high ceilings, gleaming floors and polished windows and doors that characterise comfort and luxury of a very warm and intimate kind.
The furniture is period in style, flawlessly crafted and made from the finest Burma teak.
The floors and walls are inlaid with the famous Aathangudy tiles that are handmade to this very day.
To complement this antique spirit of the house, we have added a service style that is rooted in the tradition and culture of this region, making for a holiday experience that is as magnificent as it is local in nature.
