Been here recently. The place and the ambience is very good. They resort is well maintained. Had food only once here and it was pretty good. Two drawbacks: 1. the drinking water tastes pretty bad. 2. outdoor activities are charged separately. U do have free games. overall a good experience!

Location - Its far (30 minutes away) from the city - White Town; which could be upsetting for some. The good thing is that its closer to the famous paradise beach which is a coastal lagoon. Room - We stayed in Rooms 258 and 257 (upper floor) which is quite a walk from the reception. We had to complain about... More

The property is beautiful, but it is tucked away in the middle of a village in Pondicherry. This is good for families who want an isolated resort vacation, but not for those looking to explore the city of Pondicherry - which is by the way worth exploring! It is extremely far from the city (20 Km) and costs at least... More

Club Mahindra is a brand that you can blindly trust when it comes to a relaxed and luxurious experience. So was Zest, to an extent. The location is far from the city but it is a perfect escape with their own private beach. The resort is beautiful and well planned. i honestly liked the stay but the only part of... More

CM Puducherry is located 20 minutes away from the city center and 3 hours from MAA airport, but once you are in you dont need to leave. The best part is the rooms, it is almost like you are staying in the forest and at the tree line. Green, lush, beautiful. I had room 232. Activities for KIDS are tremendous... More

It is a very vast spread resort with several amenities and good food. Pros - Lush green surroundings - Vast spread area - Many amenities and activities to keep one busy through out the day - Wonderful secluded beach Cons - Far from main city and hence commuting to the places of interest in Pondicherry becomes little difficult. (public transport,... More

Red Club member CM. Visited over weekend drive out from Bangalore. Rooms are a bit worn out however the location food staff and facilities are great!! Worth the drive down. Kids will love the place however watch out for frogs snakes and small insects around.. Rooms doesnt' have a writing reading table, mirrors and beds need to be upgraded.

We were staying here for couple of days in May2015 with whole family. This is a very well maintained property and kids enjoy very much. Food seems to be bit costly but taste was good. There are options available for packages like Dinner&Lunch packages, senior citizen package, etc. Good thing to mention is, if you order milk for kids, room... More

The setting of the Club Mahindra Puducherry resort is as close to perfection as it can get. Luxurious and at the same time homely studio apartments, courteous staff who never said a 'Sorry' / 'No' for anything, sumptuous food which they made according to our taste and a lovely clean beach adjoining the property made for a memorable family vacation....
