Nestled close to the legendary Shore Temple in Mahabalipuram, the INDeco Hotels is spread over a tranquil beach, offering contemporary luxuries in a historical backdrop. This unique heritage hotel is set in a British camping site from the 1820s. The hotel radiates harmony and depicts a relaxed coastal lifestyle. It contains 45 odd deluxe rooms with an exclusive Royal Dome House and Yale suites as well. The hotel also contains some pet-friendly rooms. It also houses a museum of treasured artifacts and objects left behind by the British rulers.

Manicured lawns, picturesque gazebos, bouncing trampolines, bougainvillea- covered pathways adorn the heritage property. They also arrange catamaran rides into the sea to feel and touch the temple buried in the sea and even bullock-cart rides to local attractions. They even have local dancers to regale you during the evenings. They also have an Ayurvedic centre, that offers some rejuvenating treatments. It also has a pool for all those who love to swim to de-stress themselves.

 The Pongamiya restaurant and the lobby of the hotel are studded with age-old artefacts belonging to the British officers, while in service in Madras as early as 1910. They form a part of the private collection of Steve Borgia and his family. This collection includes some rare utensils, camping furniture, picnic sets, clocks, lock, etc. INDeco Mamallapuram offers sea food, continental and south Indian cuisines.
