I had requested for beach huts as loved the openness of huts and as per many reviews, but wasnt granted: Reason was I am traveling with kid. I dont know why this policy. I then booked a Wood House. The Check-in was quick.... More

I had been to this property in August 2012 peak monsoon time with my wife and daughter, and we liked it so much that we planned to visit pondicherry again this year only because of this resort. However, the experience this time wasn't good and made us think why we visited here. We booked non-ac cottages Aug 2015 this time... More

I visit the dune every time I visit Pondicherry. Its about 16kms from the main city and that is what I like the most about the place. Its totally away from all the noise and the people. A very serene place. I love the way the entire place is set up totally secluded with a lot of privacy. The only... More

This resort was well themed and popular some 10 years back. Currently, it is depleting and the worst resort in the vicinity. Surya suite where we stayed is part of their tower house. The privacy which this resort boasts about doesn't apply to this suite as it shares a paper thin wall with a next suite. We can clearly hear... More

The open washroom was a startle but what the heck, it was fun and a unique experience. Its a huge property... More
