TATLER AWARD 2020  |  CHECK IN TO CHECK OUT WINNER

Few places are as spiritually nurturing as this oasis of birdsong, rippling water and shaded verandahs in Thanjavur, the capital of Tamil Nadu. Svatma’s eight-day Siddha programme is a powerful detox with plentiful offerings of spiritual practices such as hatha yoga, chanting with a Vedanta priest, Nadi astrology and access to the Navagraha astrological temples (international power players fly in to reap the ‘life-changing effects’ of a visit to all nine of the Hindu temples). A strict but delicious diet of fruit and vegetarian thalis is combined with twice-daily detox treatments (think hot oil massages, reflexology and herb scrubs).

Svatma boasts the first Swaram sound-healing chamber in India. This deeply restorative, acoustic therapy happens on a massage table that has been orchestrated to enhance the vibration frequency benefits of a Veena instrument (which has 27 strings to mirror 27 vertebrae) – and leaves you feeling like you’ve shed 10 years.
