Mantra Veppathur Resort
Ranked #2 of 25 Hotels in Kumbakonam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We stayed here for 4 days while shooting a documentary on the temples of Kumbakonam. This is a wonderful property and a unique experience. It is set like a village so some of the amenities one has come to expect in a luxury hotels are not present here. But it is designed to be like a village so all the mosquitoes in the dining room and no curtains in the room add to the charm. The open air bathrooms are very nice and the beds very comfortable. Service is very slow but always with a smile. It is a very interesting concept and we wish the CEO of this hotel, Mr Subbu the very best ahead.

Our family recently stayed at Mantra Veppathur resort, a short distance from Kumbakonam, away from all the dirt and noise of a temple town, nestled in green surroundings near Kaveri river.
Location and resort are beautiful. Cottages and villas are in Kerala style, spacious, clean with ethnic decor. We all just loved the place. Staff is very courteous, efficient and warm. From welcome to farewell, our experience was just great. They made us feel special. Veena concert was very nice.Food choice is plenty and very good at a very reasonable price. No room service is only a small inconvenience.
Annaprashna dining area is just a short distance. We wish we had more time to explore and enjoy the stay.

Mantra is situated very close to one of the river Kaveri's streams, surrounded by a very green habitat. They have beautiful Kerala architecture cottages. They provide a 5 star service and food covering both south, north and continental platter. The rooms are immaculately clean and cozy with a very ethic inside decor. The staff is very courteous, efficient, professional and helpful. They provide lot of activities for kids and grown-ups like bull cart ride, pottery, parrot astrology etc. Have a huge pool and lot of green cover everywhere. It is specifically very green and alive in the rains. The road to the resort goes over a very narrow bridge over the river Kaveri and is very challenging to cross by a car.

Awesome place nestled in a small village in Kumbakonam. The staff need a special mention as they are some of the friendliest you would find in any hotel! We loved the open air bath rooms, the spa and the swim in the pool. Would definitely go there again!

My family and I were very impressed with Mantra! From the ambiance to the staff- everything was top notch! From the moment we arrived to the time we left ,the staff made sure we were looked after and made us feel very special! The food was excellent (the highlight for me was the pineapple kesari!) - the chef was always there , asking us if we wanted anything else... Mr. Mani especially left a lasting impression on us... Will definately visit again!

Room Tip: Any room! All of them seem to be great!

Had a very comfortable stay at Mantra. Well laid out, nicely maintained, friendly staff, large and clean room and airy- partially open to sky bathrooms. Lovely antique style decor though the Tanjore paintings are not authentic enough. Great concert in the evening, kid friendly activities, sylvan surroundings and a large pool.

Will certainly like to go back sometime.

No room service but they tell you that well in advance.

Room Tip: They do have some larger rooms for larger groups.

Mantra - truly amazing - in all ways ! The website and the reviews really don't do justice to this resort... Once you enter the resort, you are transported to a different era - truly agraharam style, love the temple at the entrance, the bell sounding when guests arrive is a beautiful idea, the traditional welcome - ah refreshing after a long drive, the villas, the gardens - beautiful flora, Mantra tea kadai even has "MGR poster and Butter biscuits" - jus perfect!, Pannaiyar Illam -- was just right -- loved the rooms and the decor and the floor and decos -- you guys outdid yourself :-), the pool was just perfect for a cup of tea / coffee and a swim of course, the dining hall was a visual treat and then the food was a complete gourmet treat -- the jackfruit halwa is to die for, and the chutney dose --- omg!, the bullock cart ride and the visit to the temple - truly refreshing, the rickshaw ride, the pot breaking game, and the traditional games --- just perfect for my 6 year old and 40+ young kid too :-)... I could go on and on ... The Mantra team has truly created an enchanting place, with all modern amenities, for one to truly connect with nature, oneself and with the family, delicious yet simple food, and a staff that is truly warm, caring, and go beyond the call of duty (we had a massage therapist come to our villa at 11 pm to help with my mom's aching feet!), great with kids - my son had an awesome time - games, bullock cart ride, golf cart ride, the ducks including.... we were to stay for two nights, loved the place so much ended up staying three nights --- Would like to end this with our heartfelt thanks to Gandhi, and Suresh. Gandhi for his warmth and never tiring sense of patience with my son and our family, Suresh for being there and taking care of our every small need --- and the remaining truly genuine staff who were clearly into 'treating the customer' as the king !! Hats off to you all for creating a charming place that we can call a home away from home !! We didn't want to leave, but then again when we did - loved the traditional farewell -- your team and place got to my son's heart and he inscribed "I love Mantra" in your central hall :-))) - echoing our feelings in the process !!

Mr.Subbu -- you have a fantastic team and a beautiful place -- wish you the very best in taking care of both :-)) look forward to visiting Mantra shortly and experience the "Mantra life" ....

Room Tip: If two families are going -- make sure you choose the "Pannaiyar Illam", it is a beautiful...
