Great place for families to stay. They do not allow alcohol in the premises. Very close proximity to the promenade and the French part of Pondy. Very warm and clean place. Breakfast is very minimal, nothing lavish. If you inform them, they serve lunch and dinner as well, but only vegetarian. The staff is very hospitable and helpful. And great... More

Homely place to stay,very near to Sea and Ashram.Perfect Home Stay.Rooms are clean and nicely maintained. Home like environment with Mom and GrandMaa's love. Didi here maintains a small handicraft shop with clothes and other hand made items. Didi is doing nice social service by providing employment to needy and selling stuff made by them.

Don't judge a book by its cover. This was the first thought that came to my mind when I entered the guest house! Contrary to what I had expected from its look outside, the room was very aesthetically furnished. With only 2 girls travelling, safety was our primary and most vital requirement. Located on the main road, a stone throw... More

Beautiful place to stay in. Quite calm and peaceful. It is near to French colonies and the Ashram and the Promenade. We were 3 friends in all. Although the room was meant for 2 but they made arrangements for a 3rd person in the room as well.

A perfect Home stay which is more like a home away from home!!! Fantastic place if you are not looking for a place to stay with recreational facilities. Rooms are big, clean and neatly furnished. They have rooms with Kitchenette too. There are no TVs in the room. So, its better suited to people who prefer a calm stay. This... More

We have stayed there for 2 days, good thing was hours of check-in and -out were flexible, room was clean and neat. What we didnt like was breakfast - typical for auroville followers - bread with jam, bananas and tea. After all day we spent in bus we looked forward for something different...and cold water cooled down our expectations...

Rather than a bnb, it's more like a lovely little home.. I had the room upstairs and it was clean, with comfortable beds and aesthetically decorated.. The Owners are very warm and welcoming and made sure that I had lunch before I left to explore ! The breakfast next day was basic but sufficient.. The Owner also let me use... More

Here are the pros and cons to better understand why the review is mixed. Pros: 1. Location: Although not in the French quarter, Vatika is located just at the tip of it. Similar case with regard to the promenade. Also, although it is at the nook of a main road..since it is towards the dead end of it (Yes, this... More

Vatika was our second choice, behind Dumas. The reviews here helped make that choice. Its located on one of the pretty streets near the ashram. Its indeed a home rather than an 'inn', a pretty and aesthetic one. We got the top floor rooms. Every nook and corner had a this or a that, very cute. Early morning tea in... More

Very near to the Ashram. Ideally located near the promenade within the French Quarter. All comforts of home sans the TV. But who visits Pondi to watch TV anyway? A very neat and clean homestay. Breakfast is basic but the bread is delicious. AC's work well and you do need that in Pondi. The owner Lady is very helpful and... More
