Rebuilding History

  • Restoration of the Madurai Club was fittingly awarded to Bawa’s disciple, Sri Lankan architect and prodigy Vinod Jayasinghe. Maintaining Bawa’s unique style and most of the material he had used, Jayasinghe restored the resort to its former glory, along with the addition of modern conveniences. Leaving his own personal stamp on the project, Jayasinghe, in addition to personal courtyards and enclosed plunge pools in every villa, added an Olympic-sized, temple tank styled pool.

    Today, Heritage Madurai comprises 72 rooms including 35 villas. The old colonial bungalows have been refurbished maintaining that traditional South Indian flavor, only found in Madurai
