This is a beautiful property , spread out over many acres. We booked the Artist Studio II ( one of the most expensive rooms they offer). Everything went well for the first few hours, when we did not need any "Service". We returned to room after some time at the beach to find that the bathroom lights did not work,... More

I have stayed at this place during off season and it was so peaceful and fun at the same time. We chose Baywatch huts facing the sea with a private lawn and small garden. I went with my family there and the kids had a good time. The best attraction of this resort is the pool. We didn realize how... More

I have stayed twice at this place in Garden room which are comparatively near to restaurant. The hotel is spread in many acres with rooms located away. The concept of putting cycles for each room is great to go around and explore the place, though its better to ask in advance a well located room for people having difficulty to... More

We booked a single room for one night using an online portal and spent 4000 bucks on it. We are regular to Pondicherry and decided to check out this much hyped resort. When we entered the resort, we weren't welcome. There was a poor excuse of a Reception where a "Receptionist" with a courteousness and manners of Bane was there... More

Was here during Aug 2012 with wife and daughter (then 4 years) and we stayed in Flex house. Though we had options to choose for as we visited there during rainy season, the Flex house was the best. I must say this particular room is meant for couples, though my daughter enjoyed roaming around the room and the box type... More

The beach next to the hotel is very nice and clean, property is off Pondicherry town. We had a suite which was good sized and 2 ac's kept the heat out. However the service and attitude of staff was very poor and there are only limited dishes on the menu. The food however was good. I had my pet Labrador... More
