I have stayed at the Ideal Hotels in Thanjavur and Mahabalipuram several times. It is great to see that from humble beginnings the resorts are now going up and up towards first-class destinations. The owner is a gentleman with a great business sense who knows what tourists expect and is providing it step by step. I recommend to anyone who... More

Came between other stops. Very rural setting made for very tranquil visit. Staff very warm receptive. Pool great, warm water, clean. Had two massages which were excellent! Internet very spotty in room, worked fine in lobby and restaurant; minimal fee. Came in mid April so it was hot!

The Ideal River View is a modern development, some way outside the town of Tanjore/Thanjavur, and beside the river which owing to upstream damming and use for irrigation, was somewhat dried up when we visited. We still enjoyed watching the bullock certs coming to collect sand from the riverbed. Our room was comfortable, with a good shower room. Our welcome... More

We stayed for a number of nights during February. The setting on the river bank is glorious with farmers and bullock carts coming down to the water while we ate a wonderful breakfast on the patio. The rooms were delightful, the staff very accommodating and there was even Indian classical music on Saturday night. Highly recommended!

After a long drive though the dust and dirt of southern India, we came to this wonderful "oasis". The welcome was genuine and we relaxed. The room was spacious and comfortable, the food and entertainment in the evening was very enjoyable. The gardens gave a sense of a quiet, tropical resort. I am sorry we could not stay longer. Thank... More

Thanjavur is not on the mainstream of western tourist activity in India. This is a pity as it is a vibrant and bustling town, which prides itself as the artistic centre of Tamil Nadu, with extensive temple, palace, museums and artistic manifestations by inhabitants. The number of establishments in which western tourists would find acceptable is limited, but Ideal River... More

Large rural complex sit on the banks of a river. The grounds are mostly very well maintained, a grubby "lazy river" being the exception. Good sized clean swimming pool. Rooms are very large, nicely decorated and generally excellent. The hotel is let down by two issues. The first is minor, in that wifi is not free. The second is more... More

A well hidden place so wonderful! Near the city and yet so far away from the hustle and bustle. Simply incredible. The early morning is a wonder when you look at the riverbank.
