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.

I stayed at Svatma hotel in Thanjavur for 5 nights. Brindha, the manager, helped me make the reservation and made me feel truly welcome. The hotel is truly a marvelous work of art. Staying there us like staying in a temple of art in an art world! Truly magnificent. The swimming pool, rooms, and all other areas of the hotel scream artistically enjoyable vibes at you all the time! I have not tasted such delicious vegetarian food in a long time. Everything about my stay was so enjoyable and memorable. I strongly recommend this hotel!!

It is one of the best properties that we have come across. Absolutely amazing hospitality & wonderful courteous staff. We got to stay in the heritage building and were absolutely floored by the room we stayed in. A huge bedroom, with furniture that appears to have stood the test of time, and a bathroom that almost as big as the bedroom in most hotels, this was luxury to the core. The food was exceptional. If you are looking for a couple of days of relaxation and peace, if you are in the mood to rejuvenate your body and senses before you go back to your daily routine, Svatma is definitely the place for you. Overall it was an experience that we shall cherish & it leaves an indelible impression.

The property is a combo of an older heritage building as well as a newer section both built and decorated with a fine blend of style and heritage charm. The place oozes a rich heritage, luxury vibe and character all through the property - in the room, the common areas and the dining and drinking establishments. You would feel like you are in a cocoon of paradise, protected from the hustle and bustle of Thanjavur while you are here! LOCATION: Secluded from the chaotic part of the city, but still close to all key POI that are a quick ride away. DINE + DRINK: Lovely Rooftop Bar with chic decor and a funky touch. A Cool restaurant that oozes South Indian luxury on the ground floor that also serves a fine selection of local and international food for Breakfast ROOM: We stayed in 304, so this review is based on that; VIEW: No View as such; SIZE: Very spacious room; AIR-CON: Perfectly functioning cooler that helped in setting the perfect room temperature; BED: Comfortable bed that played the expected part to put me to sleep; BATHROOM: Stand in shower; TOILETRIES: Lovely Cosmetics from Luxury SOUL TREE brand FACILITIES: Compact Gym with very limited range of weights and very worn out cardio machines. But the Swimming pool is quite cool and perfect for an end-of-the-day luxuriating dip! SERVICE: Friendly staff that took care of all my needs with a smile and made us feel pampered and well taken care of. HOW WIRED YOU WILL BE: Free high speed Wi-Fi that works well all over the property. Big Plasma TV screen but with a very limited set of channels, especially a very poor selection of Tamil or regional channels!
