"We had a wonderful stay & the food was excellent as well and we very much look forward to coming back and experiencing the property. Our only suggestion would be to make even the pebbles bbetween the steps leading into the courtyard." Badri Rajasekar, 10 - 13 Mar. 2024

"C'est une maison charmante! On s'y sent enorme à la maison. Un grand merci. (It was a charming house. We felt at home in the house. Many thanks.)" Mr. Pierre, 10 - 12 Mar. 2024

"Thank you for the experience & wonderful service. We really had a homestay experience here. Only if the surroundings were more clean, it would be even better from the top to have a good view." Vanshika Bhatia, 9 - 11 Feb. 2024

"We enjoyed our stay with very helpful staff. So glad to have the homely food, felt so divine. Very clean and holy rooms and washrooms. Overall my experience at Thanga House was nothing short of fantastic. I'd like to extend my sincerest thanks to the entire team." Adithya S Puthalath, 10 - 11 Feb. 2024

"Fantastic stay. Feeling rejuvenated in the pleasant setting reminiscing about childhood memories since the place reminded us of our childhood grandparents/parents. House was clean. Friendly staff and excellent food. The local food was such a lovely exposure. Only qualm is we wanted accommodations for three. Bed in general did not work, so please let us know if that's the case so we can book another room. Overall a five-star experience, which made our friendship stronger." Lakshmi Ramgopal, 6 - 7 Feb. 2024

"We really had a wonderful experience at Thanga House! All the staff were very polite and helpful. Overall we had a fun time and enjoyed our wedding anniversary here. Many thanks to Madhan, who made our stay here comfortable.
The rooms were comfortable and had all basic amenities. The geyser took some time to heat and I think needs some fixing…!" 
Vignesh Ramesh, 1 - 3 Feb. 2024

"We enjoyed our stay with very helpful and friendly staff. Good homely food and calm stay. Relaxing stay on the whole." Bhavana Goel, 31 Jan. - 2 Feb. 2024

"We had a wonderful stay here. Relaxed nicely. Food can be a little spicy, and you can ask guest about their taste and spice levels. Location is good & beautiful. Ambience is good. We were taken care of well. AC could have a little higher capacity. All the people were friendly. The rooftop was beautiful." Nazeer Ahamed Syed, 26 - 28 Jan. 2024

"We had a wonderful stay here. The property's proximity to all the sightseeing spots is a plus. The host and the staff are extremely warm. Would love to visit again. Thanks!" Ganapathi Subramanian, 26 - 27 Jan. 2024

"Hey hi,
Such a wonderful place to stay. So calm and relaxed. Felt like staying at my grandma's place with so much love from the caretakers just like a family. Looking forward to another holiday trip to this same place. The food served was so good and homely. Thank you." 
Naresh Raj, 26 - 27 Jan. 2024

"Lovely property, maintained well and ensuring the heritage is maintained. Staff and manager were very courteous, helpful and friendly.
Home-cooked food was the best of all, lovely menu. Simple and tasty. The only thing we felt was that food was a bit pricey, could be given a thought to bring it down.
Overall an excellent experience." 
Karthik Hariharan, 5 - 7 Jan. 2024

"Excellent property. Very courteous and helpful staff.Food was decent. Location host was very helpful in following up and providing the villa with all useful local info. Both Aravind and Purshottam were very attentive. Thanks for an amazing stay.
To all, the WhatsApp group was useful to share/coordinate travel and logistics. Thanks for that too.
Looking forward to coming back soon!" 
Reji Varghese, 28 - 30 Dec. 2023

"To the Thanga House Team:
You have a very beautiful house set up with extreme care & good taste. We really enjoyed our day here — food cooked by Chandra was delicious, both for lunch & breakfast. Staff was extremely courteous & attentive to all our needs.
We just have one gripe — you do not have a space for drivers to rest or change/freshen up. As this is a remote location, most of your guests will come by car — there should be some options for drivers & we should be told about them from the beginning.
Otherwise, Tranquebar is a beautiful hamlet & we are lucky to have spent some time here.
Madhan, Aravind & Shanti & Gandhimathi, Purshottam were all excellent! Very well trained to cater to guests!!" 
Rujuta Mody, 26 - 27 Dec. 2023

"We had a lovely stay in Thanga House. We were made to feel as if we are not at a hotel but at a home. Thank you for the lovely rustic feel and the homely food. Cheers!" Monica Arulraj, 22 - 23 Dec. 2023

"Pleasant room — we particularly enjoyed relaxing on the veranda of the room (Diamond). May I suggest trimming the nearest tree, however — the wind made it slap against the railing.
Maintenance for the room: Bathroom light switch doesn’t stay on, so only dim lights over sink. Fan remote didn’t work for us. Suggest more tea/coffee sachets in room, since rainy weather may often confine guests indoors.
Very delicious breakfast and snacks, and I’m confident the staff will eventually master a good cup of black coffee. Thank you for your hospitality. We liked getting off the beaten track." 
Elizabeth Brown-Osuga, 19 - 21 Dec. 2023

"Lovely place to stay, a rather perfect weekend getaway. Felt at-home-kinda-food with great ambiance. However, needs a phone in rooms." Sri Roopa Kaveripakam, 11 - 12 Nov. 2023

"We had a wonderful stay here. The staff are so good, friendly, cooperative, it felt like home. The food was excellent, homely, simple. It felt like we have come to stay with our relatives for a while and not in a hotel. Mr. Madhan, Arvind, Shanti Amma, Gandhi Ammaall of them were very helping, cooperative, smiling. We enjoyed our stay here very much.

Thanks a lot to all! God bless you all!.Sanat Kumar Sen, 29 - 31 Oct. 2023

"Thank you Team Thanga Villa & LuxUnlock for outstanding hospitality and care. We will remember Aravind’s smile and personal care till the last meal of the stay, Chandralekha’s sumptuous cuisine and Mr. Madhan management and care to details.

The villa itself was beautiful. Each room has a personality of its own. My compliments to the owner, who has fine taste indeed!

Minakshi Ananad, 21 - 23 Oct. 2023

"We had a pleasant stay. An amazing food experience. The people who served us were so king and always had a warm smile on their face. 

To be considered:

  • Extra chairs in the room

  • Provision for drivers at night

  • Food was a little expensive

Mr Madhan and the whole crew guided us soo well. We would love to revisit.Sathya Anand, 20 - 21 Oct. 2023

"The closest I’ve experienced to staying at my own home is this, in spite of having experienced some of the best properties worldwide. This cannot be brought out artificially, even if one wishes to. From the top management to the bhaiyya working at ground level, outstanding service with a smile.Surya Chidambaram, 30 Sept. - 2 Oct. 2023

"Hello everyone,

Liked the stay. Was very homely. You can include some more options in your meals, for eg. fruits and judges in breakfast. Buttermilk/tender coconut at lunch would be good.

I also saw a lot of cobwebs in the room, balcony and bathroom.Saurab Jain, 30 Sept. - 2 Oct. 2023

"Hello everyone,

Thank you so much.

Nipin — Thanks man for imparting knowledge. Patient till I could do the transaction.

Madhan — Thank you so much for your follow-ups. You & my dad gave us company in our journey till here.

I have generally seen my grandmother taking Aarthi. It was good to see you guys taking Aarthi. It was a hearttouching gesture.

Thank you to the kitchen staff. Extremely lovely food. We could feel your warmth & smile on your faces and in cooking too!

The coffee near the pool, the food in the common area table. I can’t describe the joy I felt. I had planned this trip for my mother & grandmother, you guys made it perfect.

My grandmother enjoy the pool. She sang & danced. Swam too!!!

We enjoyed the stay. Slept well. The ambience is fantastic.

Thank you so much!

Keep smiling!Subhashree Mohan, 30 Sept. - 1 Oct. 2023

"1. From the time we started our journey from Erode, our host Mr. Madhan called up many times to know about our safe travel and thanks to his concern & care.

2. As soon as we reached we were given a traditional welcome with Aarthi. The caretaker of the property, Mr. Aravind also took good care. Dinner was good.

3. Room comfort: Silver Room - the width of the bed was not fitting for two adults.

4. Restroom & overall hygiene was good.

5. Wall mirrors should be fixed because we can't go into the restroom often to see the mirror.

6. Lunch prepared with love & care & so it tasted like our home food. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

The outside surroundings were very quiet & good without noise pollution for a good relaxation. 

Thank you Mr. Madhan & his team for making us feel at home.Dr. N Yoheeswaran, 23-24 Sept. 3023
