“PEACE AND SERENITY TO MANTRA RESORT”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Peace and serenity, all perfect to Mantra

Mantra Veppathur Resort is an enchanting place.
My husband and me spent here 2 nights and it was a great experience for us.
Situated in a park inhabited by peacocks and many species of singing birds, the resort is composed by independent bungalows, finely furnished. The washroom has 2 shower, one of which is an opensky waterfall shower.
Here you can breathe the real indian tradition and hospitality starting from the little ritual of welcoming and goodbye.
Excellent service. All staff is always ready to help and satisfy every wish.
The SPA is stunning ( we tried an ayurvedic massage of 1 hour!).
Also the restaurant (vegetarian) is very good and not expensive.
The only regret: 2 nights, too short time to spend in this piece of heaven!
Of course we’ll come here again.

An absolutely stunning & silent retreat for a spiritual holiday.

The setting is ethnic and takes you to the heart of Tamil culture and heritage. A temple towns of Kumbakonam and Tribhuvanam are close by to visit both for religious and cultural exposure.

The stay in the spacious cottages was a fabulous experience. The open shower and water flowing from the granite is a unique experience.

The spa and yoga experience is amazing as they take you on wellness journey impeccable quality. Ramesh is superb with his astrological expertise and yoga chats.

The only vegetarian food could be a concern for some, but it was very tastefully prepared with fresh vegetables from the nearby farms. Over a great stay with friends, and truly recommend to those who travel to Kumbakonam.

Room Tip: The panniar illam is really royale!

Dear Sir,

Many thanks for your valuable feedback posted in Trip Advisor. Its great feel to get guest feedback in a right track, which is certainly a great motivation to all of us .

Your detailed look in every corner is well appreciated, and we will certainly live up to everyone's expectations by keeping the upkeep of the resort, as well as our services will ensure every guests to come back.

Just wanted to put across my thoughts with regard to the vegetarian concept of mine.As every traveler am sure, would have tasted the Non Veg part of it all over the globe,and thought not to give the same flavor, instead wanted to give them the best of the destination choice,where they not only enjoy but will get to know more on our Indian traditional platter.

Please do come and stay again to enjoy the best of our spices,and many thanks once again for being with us,and look forward to your visit again.

I do not have any words to appreciate the hospitality extended by the staff at Mantra. Everything there has been meticulously planned. It is clean and the ambience was superb. Infact we were apprehensive whether we will be able to pass our time with the family as TV was not available but at the end, we felt a lot refreshed. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Mr. Maruthupandian (Chef) for the best veg dishes which I had ever tasted. Mr. Muthu was the person who had taken all efforts to ensure our comfort. Finally the man leading the show Mr. Nagaraj who was handled his team to master perfection in hospitality
Looking forward to see more Mantra's in other places so that we can blindly book without even reading other reviews
Thanks Team

Dear Sir,

I sincerely thank you for choosing mantra veppathur, and special thanks for posting your feedback in Trip Advisor,which is Travel barometer for any "traveler" to find the best to stay!

The reason of not having room Service is, ( Since its Spread over several acres,and one gets cold by the time from the kitchen to the cottages, as well as being surrounded by nature it can attract insects too) and we do serve tea/coffee to the senior citizens.

Look forward to your stay again, and assure our best of personalized services will continue at all times.

My parents had visited Mantra last year and had very good reviews about the place. So, this time when we decided to go to Kumbakonam, we had no doubts regarding accommodation. We opted for the Panniyar Illam since we were 4 adults travelling this time.
As soon as we reached the resort, we were welcomed by the arrival bell and a tasty welcome drink. There is a relaxing ambiance as soon as you enter Mantra.

There are two villas at the resort also called paniyar illam. These villas can accommodate up to 6 people each. They were very comfortable for 4 of us. There are 2 rooms and big living room with a swing. Everything at Mantra had a traditional touch to it. Be it the rooms or the earthen pot for water, everything was kept traditional and yet looked elegant. Each room had an attached bathroom. Also, there is a bathroom at the backyard. We totally enjoyed our accommodation at the villa. Though it was a little away from the reception and the restaurant, it was worth walking down. I loved waking up to the chirping sound of birds and beautiful sight of the peacock. One thing my parents missed at the villa is the open bathroom with shower which they enjoyed at the other cottage they stayed at Mantra last time. The villas did not have that.

The food was great. The day we came to Mantra we enjoyed the traditional south indian thali which was too filling. We tried a few new dishes and totally enjoyed the food. Mr. Muthu at the restaurant was very kind and always ready to help. Not to forget the expertise of the cook who was ready to share a few tips on preparing some dishes with us.

The tea-kadai had a rural touch and you actually feel like you're sitting in a village tea shop. Every small detail of a village tea kadai was well captured at this place.

The hospitality of the staff is par-excellence. The villa was kept neat by the time we returned in the evening after visiting temples. I loved the way lamps were lit at the entrance of the villa every evening. It felt like home. During one of the evenings, instrumental music concert was held for the guests. It was soothing carnatic music and made us relax with the hot vadai.

We stayed at Mantra for 3 nights and I still can't get this place out of my mind. It is definitely one of the best resorts I've been to. If you're looking for a pleasant stay at Kumbakonam, then it has to be at Mantra!

Room Tip: Try the panniyar illam. You'll love staying there!

Dear Sir & madam

Greetings from Mantra veppathur!

I thank you for choosing us, and given us a wonderful detailed feedback in Trip Advisor. Your eye for detail is certainly an encouragement to all of us, Its lots of efforts in a remote destination that made us to join and give a valuable stay experience to all our beloved travelers.

the open shower was made in all the mantra cottages,leaving the two "Panniyar Illam" was well kept in mind, since there was staircase leading to the private terrace,which can be "non safety" measure to adopt the open shower,like all the other cottages.

Thank you on behalf of my team, and hope to see you and your well wishers to visit and enjoy again at Mantra veppathur!
