Few kilometres from Kumbakonam in Tamilnadu is a beautiful heritage resort- Sterling Swamimalai. The ambience is that of a south indian village, with banana & coconut trees forming a lovely green backdrop. The swimming pool designed like a temple tank, the geese, ducks, turkeys & deer were Mallika's friends.
The in-house potter has created lovely terracotta murals and sculptures that are all round the resort. Great hospitality with foot-massages, ayurvedic massages. A very colourful & traditional holiday.
