Committed to culture
Teeming with temples
In temple-dotted city Thanjavur, Svatma boutique hotel is itself a shrine to Tamil culture. Housed in a fully restored colonial home, the eco-friendly stay has galleries dedicated to painting and music, books by local authors, and bronze chola sculptures (Gods and Goddesses in elegant repose) displayed throughout. Rooms continue this lived-in history lesson, drawing together both antiques and contemporary works of art. Let your tastebuds travel through the hotel’s three restaurants, each serving regional specialties made with organic ingredients. Or escape to the tranquil pool for a more literal immersion in this golden South Indian city.
