Location is the best thing about this resort as the beach is easily accessible from this resort. The boat ride in the backwaters to the beach was beautiful. We stayed in a villa with a private pool. The place is not well maintained and food was very standard. So to enjoy good food one needs to go to Pondicherry town... More

The property is good even though it is not a beach side property. The beach is near and access is there may be 200 meter away. The service is not that good and there was hiccups when we checked out because of the delay.

I went with my family over the Easter weekend to Windflower, Pondicherry. We did realize and were told the timing is bad, since it is summer and humid there, and we wished we would have listened. But we thought, since it's just a get away, how bad can the heat be. But, if you are used to the Bangalore weather,... More

Windflower spa resort Puducherry/ Pondicherry is nested right on the banks of the Chunnambar River. I stayed at the resort with my wife and kids for 3 nights and I rented out one of their Villa properties. Getting There: I drove down from Chennai, which was a breeze.

Although it was slightly difficult to find the Hotel which was tucked away behind a village & 2.5 Kms from the main highway, we were pleasantly surprised by the lush green surroundings & proximity to the sea.The rooms were spacious & comfortable opening out to a verandah on a green patch. Buffet meals were good with lots of variety. It... More

Amazing place with some good food. Staff is extremely helpful and they try to make your stay memorable. Lot of open space for kids to roam around. Beach at walkable distance which is highlight. Evenings are extremely pleasant. Excellent place for family vacation.

The resort isn't exactly on the beach but a short 5 mins walk away is clean ,secluded beach. The check- in was a minor glitch and a bit time... More
