A stay like no other, is probably the easiest way to describe our stay. The villas at Mantra are surrounded by nature. Just need to be a little wary of monkeys,though. For city dwellers like ourselves it was an experience in itself. Beautiful natural surrounding with fruit trees, away from the noise of vehicles and high rise buildings felt what... More

If I was asked to describe this place in two words, i would call it - Indian Paradise. I am so in love with this resort that I wish I would have another oppourtunity to visit this place again soon in the near future. To begin with, this resort will appeal to those who are looking for a quiet, serene... More

Quite beautiful resort, particularly the paths between the appartments, the garden and the location of the restaurant. The pool was clean, but rather small, contains more chlorine than usual and we had to wait for towels multiple times. The interior style of the rooms was nice, especially the bathroom which had an open ceiling above one of the two showers... More

As other reviewers have said , this is a beautiful and tranquil retreat. Set in an old plantation, a collection of wooden cottages , huge rooms with traditional furniture and bathrooms that have a choice of indoor or outdoor showers. Lots of big teak pillars and all rooms have front porches with a rocking chair. So its a great place... More

A great place from which to explore the temples and history of the Tanjore region. Not easy to find so plan to arrive before dusk. Only vegetarian food but of excellent quality. Nagaraj at the front desk and Muthu in the restaurant were standouts, and the Tea-Coffee kadai was a brilliant start to the day. Don't miss Gangaikonda Cholapuram nearby!

A tranquil retreat from the noise and traffic of city life. Cottage was clean and well-maintained. Loved the open air shower. Staff attentive and helpful. Excellent South Indian food. We stayed four nights and will definitely book Mantra when we next visit Kumbakonam.

We stayed here only for one night because the Ideal Riverview Resort was full. Had we known what a paradise of a place Mantra is, we would have definitely spent both nights and probably more here. It is a tucked away gem of a place that is very close to the most ancient temples in India, and was obviosly designed... More

I reserved for three nights and ended up staying for four. From a conventional point of view, it's out of the way, but is a great jumping off spot for the many Chola temples and other sites in the neighborhood.
