One of the best resorts I've seen in Puducherry. Nicely placed location, far from the city traffic. Beautiful beach for peace and calm experience. Great food and ambiance. Wonderful pool. All rooms are separately located in between green fields.

It was a pleasant drive to Pondicherry on the East Coast Road, for our brief holiday at Club Mahindra, punctuated by a nice lunch at Lydies, . The resort is about 18 km away from Pondy and is an ideal place to chill, enjoy the surroundings and forget everything urban. However, if you feel like going in to town, you... More

We stayed there as a family of four including two children in January 2015. It was a wonderful break from the harsh winter of Delhi and we were very glad to be in the midst of lush greenery and generous sunshine.

A perfect destination for a perfect holiday. Excellent property, very good food n very courteous staff. This place caters for all .... Whether a family, a couple or a group of friends.......it's about 3 hrs of smooth drive from chennai airport, book your cab from the club itself.
