This charming hotel offers luxury accommodation in Thanjavur (formerly Tanjore) with strong influences into Tamil Nadu culture.


Formerly a grand family home, Svatma is now a heritage hotel with 38 suites, located in the perfect spot for exploring Thanjavur as it stands today. 7 of the guest bedrooms remain in the original building and the rest can be found in the adjacent new building.


No meat is served at this hotel but the vegetarian dishes created from local and regional ingredients and served in the Aharam Restaurant are mouth-wateringly delicious. Four treatment rooms at the spa offer a range of massages and beauty treatments to unwind guests.

  • Surrounded by lush landscaped gardens in a tranquil location from which to explore Thanjavur
  • Take a trip to see the Brihadeeswarar/Brihadishwara Temple. Spend time at the Saraswati Mahal Library Museum and take a trip to visit the Royal Palace.
