Foodwise, I'd highly recommend the traditional Tamil banana leaf meal as it was the best I have ever had. Other dishes in the menu were also cooked freshly, and each dish tasted different unlike in other... More

We had a comfortable room near the swimming pool overlooking a grassed palm tree lawn. The hotel obviously maintained a high level of cleanliness as the entire hotel... More

The hotel is situated in the countryside and not within walking distance of any of the cultural sites around Thanjavur. However the grounds are well maintained and quite extensive on the banks of a river, which while we were there was almost dry. The gardens are beautiful with lots of shade and a clean and lovely swimming pool, which we... More
