The moment you step inside the ambience hits you.... you know you have chosen right. This is a place for people who want to get away from the clutter and noise and relax for a few days. There are lots of areas to sit around and chill, you can enjoy the plants and the artefacts , its a total experience.... More

We would like to share our short but terrible experience in this beautiful hotel. We are both passionate about hotel business, worked in many top brand luxury hotels, visited a lot of properties around the world. Always been very welcome until we walked-in this hotel. Inquiring about availability, we've been told by the person in charge that the hotel was... More

I stayed at La Closerie in first week of November 2014. It is so beautiful and elegant that the moment you step inside you are transported into a new world...... a world where all things are perfect, artistic and you can not deciede which part or corner is more beautiful than the other. I was lucky to have met the... More

La Closerie, was a home away from home, with M'me Annie making sure that our stay was comfortable, homely, and went out of her way to inquire if we were to require any vehicles for rent. La Closerie, is not your run of the mill hotel. On entering , you notice the pool , the sky-walk, and the staircases. which... More

This is a really smart and well designed/decorated place. It is a haven of peace and quiet, with a really nice style to it. Annie the owner was around to help and chat, and talk to us about the area and advice on places to see, eat and arranged taxis for us too. Nice breakfasts of fruit, French bread, jam... More

It was absolutely a pleasure to stay here. When I came there the woman forgot that two more people came, that means I had no room. She showed me two other rooms, and I could choose the nicest one for the same price. The rooms are all very nice, warm, modern, and every room has there charms. If you need... More

I absolutely loved my stay at La Closerie. I visited this place for my birthday and it was truly blissful. Annie (the owner) was very helpful and she upgraded us to the best room of the guest house. Everything about the place was mesmerising. Be it the rooms or the lounge area which is beautifully designed. i must say the... More

It is a wonderfully quaint and charming hotel. The pool is small (a plunge pool) but perfect to laze around under a canopy of tree's. The rooms are very nicely appointed in typical old pondichery type furniture. If I had to look to be critical I would perhaps say the lack of a running restaurant is a limitation, but on... More

La Closerie is not a guesthouse, it's an experience. Run by Annie, every little thing here is an example of attention to detail. From the softest linen to the slight strains of music in the evenings, everything feels like all the poets and lovers of the world got together and designed a living space called La Closerie. Annie dislikes having... More

It is a great place to stay in pondicherry. Independent, beautiful, green. Annie has put in her creativity and love to make the place lively and beautiful. Breakfast is great, people working there are humble.
