Very nice spacious rooms, with maximum privacy. Very welcoming check-in, with flowers and a juice drink. Dinner was excellent, the staff attending to all our special wishes which are not "Hindu style".

We enjoyed our two night stay here. The room was large with a separate dressing room. It was great to sit on our upstairs balcony and watch the bullock carts collecting sand from the river bank.The swimming pool is huge and very clean. The gardens are very well kept.We found the staff to be helpful. We never eat buffet dinners...

getting here is challenging. The access road is in poor condition and full of bumps and potholes....but the place is right next to the river (although the river was dry during our visit) and beautiful. The outdoor eating area is well spread out, and has comfortable seating. The service is rather slow and the management expects you to sit back,...

Very remote from the crowdy city of Tanjore, this resort is an island of quietness nested on the river shores. The very bumpy almost muddy road to access it does not announce the place quality! High quality double stoey bungalows, superb gardens, swimming pool... Excellent food with lots of varieties, dedicated and amicable crew... An excellent base to visit Tanjore...

We were quite apprehensive about finding a good place to stay for our 2 nights stay in Thanjavur. But our choice of this place turned out to be perfect. Great location, authentic South Indian cuisine, great hospitality and service. And icing on the cake was personal touch of the management.
