Travellers' Choice
Svatma is more than a highly individualistic travel destination. Designed by and for exacting individuals with Spirit - it is the epitome of Tamil culture and art evolved into a space-time capsule of mystique and allure. It is the indescribable romance of contemporary artists flirting with curated antiques and experimenting with ancient art forms in a space resonating with the chanting of Vedas.

We chose this property for celebrating my father in law’s 90th birthday. We had a lovely time at Svatma wirh my husband, his sister and their my in-laws. We loved the food and the attention to detail in their preparation. We loved the rooms too. They were comfortable and the beds too were very plush and nice. The staff were friendly and I found all of them extra warm and caring. For my father in law’s birthday dinner, we had a dinner party on the lawn one evening. It was memorable and special. Svatma is really beautifully appointed and it has been thought through well. We used the spa. My mother in law loved it!!!! All in all, a win, and I would go back in a heartbeat!!!

Hi all , This is going to be a little lengthy review about our horrifying experience at one of the supposedly finest luxury resorts at thanjavur “ Svatma “ … My husband and I checked in couple of days before the New Years with the idea of having a different and memorable New Years … sadly we got the opposite experience. To start with the so called all inclusive breakfast was terrible … not to mention the exclusive filter coffee which Kumbakonam and Tanjore is proud about … horrible breakfast coupled with equally horrible filter coffee. Coming to lunch and dinner options. Paid option. Again pathetic for the price … rooms were super average with nothing great to boast about for the price we paid for. Our room was strategically right above the kitchen … so the minute we open the doors the masala smell emanating from the kitchen was a punch to our face. It was so strong and nauseating … Early morning around 5 am we had planned to check out early that day. Went in to the bathroom to take a shower before leaving. To my shock there was no hot water … super disappointing. Not expected from a hotel that charges sky high charges. Over all for three day stay we shelved out close to 60,000 Indian rupees which is exorbitantly high given the sub-standard experience … Very disappointed with the entire experience …Heads up for all of you in case you’re looking for this particular place. My honest review plz look for other places that offer you way better beautiful memories for a justifiable price. Svatma is a very big disappointment …

This property has the Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai concept one side is the heritage peaceful wing n other side is the newer buzzing side . . My choice is always heritage wing , the moment you enter the heritage wing , it transports you to a beautiful bygone era as you step into a space of antique Tanjore paintings , musical instruments , old pictures and idols , it’s a small private collection with a museum vibe . . We stayed in the Swappanam suite n It’s a beautiful suite n for the price it surely is a steal no wonder it’s mostly sold out . . Food n service is excellent . . But the true star of this place is their young n dynamic Driving force Vaibhav . . You’ll find him Everywhere and at times I wonder how does he manage it . . He’s incredibly passionate of what he does , he goes all out to give you an experience to cherish . . He’s up for any challenge , he won’t leave any stone unturned . .The Vedic chants n Veena playing were beautiful . . I’ve can’t wait to be back hoping for a direct Mumbai to Trichy flight . .

Svatma is an indulgent beauty. It is a bit hard to locate, but once inside, it does not seem like the rest of Thanjavur at all. The complex is lush green, and the interiors are full of Chola, Nayaka and Maratha art. There is a small museum inside displaying antiques typical to Thanjavur where you can spend an hour or so. The food at their restaurant, ‘Aaharam’, though vegetarian, is to die for. The staff maintains COVID protocols throughout and requests guests to do so as well. The best part for my 5 year old son was a stack of ‘Amar Chitra Katha’ books right next to the swimming pool. And the small tank in the lobby with a pet frog. The only suggestion for the hotel would be to put in location markers on the road so that it can be better located by the guests.

Good concept : Tanjavur is melting point of culture and heritage. This hotel is an attempt to emulate the past. Colonial post office is converted into heritage block , well decorated with sculptures , paintings , artefacts , musical instruments . Staff : Plenty of untrained staff. They are well mannered but not familiar with hospitality industry service. Restaurant : Well decorated restaurant. They can prepare local delicacies. Chef can customise our order. They struggle to manage even 25% of capacity. Nobody available to receive and offer seat. House keeping : Poorly maintained yoga studio. Reasonably Clean beddings and bathroom. Parking : Not sufficient parking.
