The buildings are truly beautiful and unique. Large property with nice grounds. The beach is closely and looked nice. The approach to the hotel is through a narrow poor street - not very nice. The reception was poor. The solitary guy at the desk seemed a bit clueless. Personally get turned off when the mens toilet in the lobby reeks... More

We spent two days in Le Pondy on a casual unplanned trip. To our surprise the hospitality of the staff and the facilities were excellent. Le Pondy stands apart from any other resort hotels in Pondy. Always recommend.

Let me begin with the hospitality which was very good, the response from the manager and his staff is quick and very polite. Next is the place which was quiet yet lively.

My travel period was 15/8/14 to 17/8/14. Initially I thought the travel time was peak and maybe the the hotel will not overall look thru... More

We had been there at the end of July 2014 and as a family of 4 adults we had taken 2 lake view rooms. The check in was very fast and efficient although we had to wait some time for one room as both the rooms first allotted to us were twin beds inspite of specifying the requirement on email... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on December 30 and 31, 2013 nights with an explicit objective of enjoying a New Year Eve at the beach location. We were not dissapointed for selecting this hotel. The location is wonderful, albeit slightly interior in the city to reach but our driver managed to find it. The beach around the... More

The location was amazing. In late August, the place had very less people. The hotel has a more or less "private" beach which we took advantage of at 6:30 to take a nice walk along the seaside. I recommend you do the same, it was a great experience. I recommend the Lake View Rooms. Honestly, presidential Villa is not worth... More
