Will not recommend to book this unless you are a member of club mahindra(read as : you have no option other than to book this coz of the hefty membership fees you have paid). The resort is around 18-19 kms away from the town/city centre so if you have a vehicle(4 wheeler) then you may think of this. Its pretty... More

Sprawling property with beach at a stone throw distance , but a little walk from room. Well maintained, guarded, clean, swimming pool, bar counter and children play area. Chargeable games like pool table, air hockey, jorbing etc. Resort is about 15 kms from Puducherry on Cuddalore Road. Hard to locate the sign boards, remember that few meters before Mahatma Gandhi...

My family has been to the property 3 times in the last 6 years. The management changed from Zest to Club Mahindra a few years back. It is very well maintained (though they could trim the buses around the swimming pool for better access). The lawn is manicured, the paths dimly lit for a romantic walk. The beach is clean... More
