We got the exact feeling of coming back home whenever we entered the place. The architecture, location and the simplicity took us back to our yester years. I think the owner of the location has choosen two excellent people to make it the best, one being the architect of the building and second is Fredrick. Breakfast was one of the... More

It is one of those places which leave you feeling refreshed as you leave. The sheer homeliness of the place makes you feel nostalgic and yearn for staying back more. I think the staff is the star attraction of the place and Fredrick does great job of playing as perfect host. The rooms are huge by any standard and the... More

Stayed a short week recently. And it was excellent. The service is as sharp and obliging as ever you could wish. The building and the atmosphere has a lovely old-fashioned feel. The food they make is excellent. But beware of massive portions!! And, if you're not Indian, you might have to point out that you do like the proper spiciness... More

I chose this place for 2 reasons:[1] I was taking my parents and wanted them to experience a heritage property [2] in my search for one, I found Anantha to have had the best reviews from all those who have visited it. I must say it has been a fantastic stay (Feb 2014); Fredrick & his team are all so... More

The size of the rooms at Anantha will amaze you. The rooms are HUGE and spacious and impeccably clean. No amount of words are enough for this place. The service is brilliant and the staff is always there to help you, always with a warm smile. Even when we walked in at 11 pm there was someone at the door... More

Anantha Heritage was just like being home, with lovely people around. Fredrick and his team were fantastic and always helpful. with Language being a barrier to communicate with people around Fredrick and his team were just a call away to sort the problem for us. Service provided by the entire team in Anantha was top class which i have never... More

We stayed at Anantha for 2 days in March 2014 as we wanted to stay in a heritage property. Anantha met our expectations well. Our stay was very pleasant, peaceful and comfortable. Rooms are neat and clean with modest but clean toilets. Its walking distance from places of interest - rocky beach, french colony, eateries, bakeries, main market etc. All... More

Anantha is like a place that i have never seen before. The ambiance is the key, it makes you feel that you have travelled back in time to the 18th century, The place will make you feel at home in a enigmatic and soothed way and yet it has all the technology to pamper the high-end lavish demands you have...

We enjoyed our stay at the Anantha Heritage, and found it an oasis of calm in bustling Pondicherry. We are happy to do a fair bit of walking, and for those who are also happy to walk a fair bit, you can easily reach all areas of the old town on foot. I believe there are only 5 or 6... More

Amazing stay at this beautiful heritage hotel. Was put up in the deluxe room - was big and done up in colonial style decor. It's next to a busy temple and bazaar but the din of the street does not reach the hotel and you can soak yourself in silence. The greatest part was the warm and efficient staff. Shiva,... More
