The positives: LOCATION: away from the city -so if you need to just relax, this is just the place. BEACH- direct access from resort, clean and not too crowded ( even though its a public beach). perfect for families with kids who want to be on the beach. WEATHER- we were there for 2 days and day 1 was perfect... More

Visited resort on 11th and 12th of aug. Being a non member, had some apprehensions. All got cleared though. Rooms are entry level. Not much luxury. The resort is amazing, buzzing with activities. Gr8 bar. Cocktails were gr8. Amazing food. Now the star of this review- the staff. Most of the staff were very courteous and very helpful. Special refrence... More

This is a Zest property rebranded to Club Mahindra. On the other side of Pondicherry. Great resort with good lawns, swimming pools and wonderful beach - very clean and almost private for Club Mahindra guests. Rooms are spartan with minimal facilities - guess the expectation is that you will hardly be in the room when there are excellent outdoor activities... More

The title probably does not match with the lovely service and facilities available at this resort and the first impression of this resort made of temporary structure is, WoW!

My title " Expect Less to get more" itself speaks volumes. This Mahindra property was acquired from Zest (Mahindra's low budget vacation company). One can expect good service, best of the staff and fairly good property. Rooms (Mahindra calls it as studio) are hopeless. I was made to change two rooms and finally landed in the third one to settle.... More

Stayed at Club Mahindra Puducherry on a couple of occasions . The rooms are a bit bare but the resort has a lot to offer. Overall enjoyed our stay. Loved the food especially South Indian food. The stay was made even more pleasant thanks to the hospitality of Chef Srinivasan. His morning filter coffees and special mint juice were awesome.
