#2 of 46 in Thanjavur
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.

The hotel staff had overbooked. Normal check out time for any hotel is 12 noon. I had booked for three nights. At around 4 pm on the second day I was asked to vacate stating that my booking was only for a night. Extremely rude staff at the front desk who offered no apology even. For all the tall claims and reviews this was totally out of the blue for any hotel. No explanation was given when asked that every hotel had a check out procedure in the morning and over stay in the room was only on special request since the room needs to be prepared for the next arriving guest. Other than such an unethical and unprofessional behaviour, I must appreciate the taste of architecture and landscape of the hotel. The rooms are designed well and the lighting has a very ethnic touch. Normal downsides given that such hotels with high ratings have as a standard Wi-Fi issues TV set top box issues Not all items in menu are available. Items need to be preordered for dinner during lunch Room services was slow and room was not made up inspite of sign to do so Exhaust in bathroom was not working Good aspects Friendly services and restaurant staff Food was homely and healthy… nothing special but we loved it (though only few items were available) Landscape was beautiful Art and lighting was good in the whole property If not for the botch up by the front office staff still eating would be 3/5. There was no manager to even handle the issue I faced. Totally immature for the price charged and star claims

The property is great. Rooms, decoration, pool all done nicely to a five-star standard. However, service needs improvement. For example, the electric kettle in the room was not working, dish connection never worked during our stay, water in the swimming pool had excessive chlorine and no shower facility. Enjoyed the food in Aharam. Great taste and good breakfast spread

Be prepared to wait when ordering for food. !!even when there is no one else in the restaurant. Food is expensive for a location like Thanjavur. Wish they could improve this in an otherwise good stay. Very clean place and good location. Did a walk to the Big temple from the resort in the morning. Just 2.5 kms.

Eclectic and tastefully arranged boutique hotel. Fabulous spa and gracious service. Breakfast and Dinner should be raised to the level of service provided by the rest of the hotel. Sangita did a fab job at the front desk. We were pleasantly upgraded to a suite, which was has a nice additional seating space for a comfi evening tea, with the sun scantily pouring in thru the windows. The pool area was by far the best retreat in the hotel. The dark stone nicely compliments the decor around it. Hema and Numa were wonderful with he Signature Spa treatments, it was soo good tha we went twice. While the place is small with not much to do a the property, it is wel located in a quiet street, and the faint Sunday morning mass from St. Peter's Church was a lulling welcome. Glad that the hotel does glass bottles instead of plastic. Reading ACK (Amar Chitra Katha's) by the poolside brought back wonderful childhood memories.
