Located on a dusty side street in central Tanjore, this 100-year-old former family residence is the ideal base to explore the Great Living Chola Temples. The proprietor, an antiques collector, has faithfully expanded the property from seven to 38 rooms and decorated it in period-appropriate furniture. Her personal collection is on display, creating a museum-like environment, and all rooms are unique. Be sure to opt for a more spacious suite. An excellent spa offers a range of massage treatments and yoga classes. The restaurant serves strictly vegetarian South Indian cuisine, and the rooftop bar has expansive city views. Cooking and painting lessons can be arranged; nightly Tamil dance performances offered. The sound of flowing water from the pool and gardens enhances the sense of peace that permeates the property.
