Went to Pondicherry with my family and was a very relaxing vacation for all of us. Took the room service the day we reached and was amazed at the packaging of gourmet express. My kid enoyed the trampoline jump, balloon ride, the video games and indoor games. I had a good spa session, relaxed swim, tried my hand on the... More

Planned my Summer Vacation to Pondicherry at Club Mahindra. The Big Beach resort visit was on my list from the time it got renovated(post Tsunami). The beach property is stunning. Its spread wide facing the beach. So be it at your room or activity center or the restaurant you can get a glimpse of the sea and the roaring noise.... More

Holiday activities are awesome but costly. The food and spread is good. BathRooms and linen need a revamp as mirror has faded, linen is worn out and torn. Fantastic location .. You can be in the resort and just relax. Siva conducts the holiday activities really good

Visited club Mahindra puducherry with family for a break last weekend. The highlight of this property is the almost private beach. Very relaxing and soothing. Great sunset and sunrises with a not too choppy sea for children to play in the water. The indoor quizzes and dance classes by Siva were good fun way to chill out the afternoons. Have... More

I visited this place during Holi Weekend. It was one of the memorable vacation and much more because of Club Mahindra Puducherry. It has a wide verandah facing the sea which is one of my most favourite place in the property. The easy access to the beach makes it possible to go for morning walks, beautiful sunrises as well.

The key thing about this resort is the scenic view of the beach. The rooms are normal and decently done not swanky. Food is as expensive as any Club Mahindra property. Very nice swimming pool with a bar area (mostly closed unless demanded) A kiddie pool too. Access to beach in the morning is fun not many activities to do... More

We holidayed at the Club Mahindra,Puducherry from 8th to 15th June 2015. It was an amazing experience to say the least. My wife maintains that this was her best outing ever, better than our Swiss soujorn (Thats because she did not have to walk too much). To put things into correct perspective,here are some thoughts about the Good and the... More

The place is great for relaxing with the family, good for long morning walks on the beach which though not private is virtually so, the property is spacious and a good place to breathe in some fresh air. Activities include Swimming, cycling, Table Tennis, among others with ad hoc activities organized by the resort. Food is great, the place has... More

Ultra-clean beach, beautifully designed resort and regular kids activities made our stay memorable. One of Club Mahindra's best resorts we have stayed. Food was good too. Just that the property is 20 km off city but worth the distance. Lawns and rooms are well maintained. Rooms even have semi-private backyards and backdoor access. One feels luxury amidst nature without disturbing... More
