The rooms are lovely and spacious. There is a nice view of the river, and the pool was also very nice. The restaurant was exceptional. Fantastic food, and great service. Best of all was the fantastic service - everyone was so kind and accommodating. It was one of our favorite stays of the entire trip!

This resort is situated on the banks of the Vennar river, on the outskirts of Thanjavur. As one exits Thanjavur in the direction of Kumbakonam, one crosses the river, a large hoarding on the left indicates the turn off from the highway to a tarred village road on which lies the entrance, approximately 3 KM's inside. Started in 1996, by...

Just how romantic this place is, you can only figure out while sipping a cup of tea in the late evening, on the terrace. The location is lovely, the garden so beautiful and the view is amazing. The rooms look like small cosy apartments, the personnel is very caring and the food excellent!

Like most people have already mentioned the rooms could really benefit from being updated although they are spacious and it is fair to say that they are comfortable. Stairs leading up to any first floor rooms are quite steep so request a ground floor room if mobility is a concern. As mentioned before lots of nocturnal insects / lizards come...

As with all reviews this is from my point of view only...one of a city dweller. The resort is in a very rural setting. This means that you take a little narrow dirt road surrounded by padi fields and wild greenery. It overlooks a cute river ( as you can see in some of the shots taken by others). The...

What a fantastic place! Too bad that our travel itinary only allowed us to be there 1 night. The reception was so warm and welcoming. All the staff members so helpful and courteous.

The room and its facilities were excellent, each room had its own veranda (ground floor) or balcony with loungers. Both the evening meal and breakfast were superb. What was even more impressive was the attentive and helpful staff throughout the hotel, and to be introduced to the owner after breakfast who was making sure that everything was satisfactory. Overall, a...

Unfortunately we only stayed one night in this peaceful hotel. We enjoyed some traditional Indian music during our dinner besides the river. I stayed in a ground floor suite which was very comfortable.
