Though we had booked 4 suite due to some confusion we were allotted 2 rooms and they informed that other 2 rooms... More

In this type of hotel you can stay with the nature. We had booked an cottage without aircondition but it was nice to stay in this room. In the evening you can sit outside and listen to the water of the pool or the people in the restaurant. But when you are inside the room you don't hear anything from... More

Really good rooms, very spacious and pretty.. room on the first floor had a really nice balcony.. Good food too ordered some cheese to take home! the pool was also really nice. It's best to go with your own car.

Mango hill is small boutique hotel, about 200 meters from ECR on the auroville road. The heart of city would be about 5 - 6 km from the hotel. First thing that hits you is the car parking, it cramped up & can take only a maximum take 6-7 cars. I guess the hotel by itself didn't have more than... More
