Short description

Recommended for:
Family | History & culture | Spa


The Ideal River View Resort is set overlooking a river beach on the Vennar, a scenic tributary of the Cauvery – a river devout Hindus describe as ‘the Ganges of the South’. The hotel is just three kilometres from the outskirts of Tanjore (Thanjavur), the cultural heartland of Tamil Nadu, India’s southernmost state. Nearby attractions include Tanjore’s majestic UNESCO World Heritage listed temples and the sixteenth-century Vijayanagar fort. The nearest airport is Tiruchirapalli, 58 km away.


Making the most of its riverside location, the hotel offers one standard category of accommodation: River Facing Rooms. Each of these smart, modern rooms comes with outdoor seating space or a private balcony. Inside, facilities include twin beds, satellite television and en suite bathrooms with a bath tub or shower. Hotel guests also have access to complimentary in-room WiFi.


Exotic Indian, Sri Lankan and Chinese flavours are the mainstay of Ideal River View menus. Guests can dine in the main Ideal Garden Restaurant or al fresco on the terrace or by the swimming pool.


The large outdoor swimming pool, surrounded by palm trees and manicured lawns, is a major draw for visitors looking to relax and unwind. So, too, is the resort’s acclaimed Ayurvedic Massage & Spa Centre. Other leisure facilities include volleyball, tennis, chess and billiards. Performances of traditional music and dance are put on daily in the Ideal Garden Restaurant.
