Finally here is a visionary hotelier who dares address this beautiful city, stepping over the rather presumptuous Tanjore by its rightful name - Thanjavur. With their flagship hotel Svatma due to open in good time for “navaratri”, there is a reason why this awe inspiring concept hotel is of great relevance to one of the most culturally rich regions in Tamil Nadu.
Thanjavur stands at a point of confluence of arts, music, culture and dance leading you to explore other places like Thiruvaiyaru, Srirangam, and Kumbakonam. You are in the very heart of Tamil culture, here as it was centuries ago you will discover expressions of grace and richness of life… in its temples and sabhas, in its music and lost wax sculptures, in its specific style of Bharatanatyam, its soulful Carnatic music compositions that every proud Tamilian will wake up to every day of his life even as the aroma of filter coffee wafts around him and the fragrance of sparkling jasmines call him to prayer. Each day begins here in the wee hours waking up even as the gentle light of the morning sun lights up ‘peria kovil’ – the Brihadeeswara temple. Suprabatham and classical music nights here are as sacred as night-life is to any metro dweller.
Precisely why Svatma – The Heritage Residence will be your perfect address to expereince Thanjavur as it stands today relfecting the glories of a past that it proudly sustains.
