The resort is located away from the main Puducherry area and is closer to Cuddulore. Has nice air-conditioned cottages and a lovely open reception overlooking the sea and green lawns. Resort offers numerous activities for children. Staff are courteous.

The best aspect of this club mahindra is it location, right on the beach. It is a fun place for kids with activities and swimming pool. The rooms are spacious and apt for the weather in pondicherry. Although, the food is something which will need improvement, especially the breakfast spread is not up to mark of a hotel of this... More

We had planned holiday for two families together for January holidays for kids. The Zest property is good but not as compared to Binsar or Goa. This property was destroyed in cyclone hud hud but they are in process of building it up. As far as activities are concerned, its full of it. Beach front needs additional barricades and security....

I stayed in this property with my family for 3 nights and certainly it was a great solace. The property is far away ( 20 kms) from Pondichery which in a way is positive but negative as well since for visiting Pondichery attractions or the town, one must add 30 to 35 minutes of travel time. The rooms are quite... More

Had a very good experience with my family. Great place with lot if activities for all age group. Good food and choice of menu. Friendly staff, specially the kitchen team was more service oriented than the service staff. Commendable. Areas of improvement- could provide a luggage rack in the room, a small tea-poy to keep the Gourmet service trays.

Very nice resort with a private beach. Widely spread with greenery all around. The rooms were very spacious and it gave a feeling of staying right in the jungle. The location is a little remote (I like that) and there is no other option but to eat in the resort. The prices are little higher if you are not a... More

The Big Beach resort was a couple of years back absorbed into the Club Mahindra fold. The first thing which strikes a visitor is the remote location. The resort is located approx 20kms away from Pondicherry. The route marking by the resort also leaves things to be desired. We were on Google maps and hence reached comfortably but otherwise reaching... More
