On cleanliness they could have done better. Pillows were full of stains and sheets had blood stains. Towels were also very worn. The restaurant ran out of white wine the first day and... More

The Windflower Resorts and Spa at Pondicherry is a really good place to spend time on your own. It is an excellent resort - not a behemoth where you get lost amidst the crowds; and not a two-hut fraud where you feel overwhelmed by the nothingness! It is just the right size to be able to have a peaceful holiday... More

Excellent resort. Beautiful rooms. We had the rooms with the river view which was absolutely fantastic. The staff was very nice and helpful. The best part was that it is only 10 min walk to the beautiful Paradise beach.The only thing that requires attention is the restaurant. The breakfast and tea was very average and even ordering a la carte... More

35 of us stayed at the windflower pondycherry for 2 days. Absolutely fantastic hospitality. Excellent rooms and beach access. Food at all meals worth a million. In general a wonderful experience worth every penny.

I would easily rate this as one of the prettiest properties in Pondy and it is very well maintained. The manicured lawns and the rooms are all so well maintained. It is a little hard to locate if you are new to Pondy. There isn't enough of signage and you have to factor in some time to actually locate it.... More
