Place - 4.5/5 ,Food - 4.8/5 Activities - 4/5 We were a big family of 10 including a 2 yr old. The property is very nice and spaced out (though not as luxurious as the le pondy) Best part is every room has his own "concept" WHICH IS UNIQUE ,one of the drawback was offen electricity problem which is concern...

Stayed at The Dune Eco Spa & Village for two nights in August and it turned out to be an excellent decision.The room/cottage we stayed in was "The Dome house" and it was very comfortable. Each room is like a house with a private garden and separate entrance. The resort itself is spread out on acres of land, but everything... More

Breakfast here was really fantastic, though I felt the rooms here were a bit musty, it was cleaned well and the... More

Spacious rooms build with thought of making guests feel close to nature. Place is spartan, but you get everything you need. The highlight of the place is outstanding food, great place where children can be engaged away from their Ipads, Xboxes to do something different like pottery, milking cows etc Uma the manager of the property is outstanding and has...

We were planning on staying @ the Villa Shanti in Pondicherry but chose Dune and it was a wise decision. Very serene and 14 Km away from the city. The staff - Omarpatti, Sarvana and Robin are but few of the names we recall. Each and every member made a supreme effort for our comfort. the food is a mix.... More

A vast area to roam around, provided the weather permits. The private Beach is good and has great scenic views and photo opps. The rooms are of many different types and some of them are very good and suit families- e.g.Garden rooms Though there were study tables, the lighting was very poor. Avoid Non-AC rooms with open roofs. There are... More

The legends only enjoy this property its a best property not to stay for live.Food is good the time taken for room service guys are reasonable because its 35 acre property. We are not expecting luxury in the rooms enjoy the reality where its missing in the fast moving world they... More
