The Svatma



Located in the heart of Tanjore, Svatma is a stylish character boutique property with interiors which have been heavily influenced by ancient Tamil culture and art. The hotel comprises of a skilfully restored, century old, family home and a modern wing which has been designed to complement the heritage building. Each of Svatma’s 38 spacious, elegantly furnished rooms and suites is an inspiring fusion of traditional style solid wood furnishings and polished wooden floor boards with modern contemporary comforts. While 7 rooms and suites with a private veranda are set in the main heritage building, the others are housed in the new wing. Dining experiences include 'Nila Choru' at the roof-top restaurant - a recreation of traditional family dinners under the stars on moon-lit nights and authentic home-style vegetarian Tamil cuisine based on the owner's family recipes at the main restaurant. Every afternoon guests are served delightful finger-food on the veranda accompanied by either spicy tea or 'filter-coffee' as is practiced in every Tamil home. It should be noted that Svatma only serves vegetarian cuisine.
