We stayed in Le Dupleix from 12-14 Sept, it was a truly luxurious experience. We were automatically upgraded from delux to the suites. Right from check in the experience was very cherishing. The hotel staffs were very help full and friendly. The food was mouth watering in the restaurant below the mango tree. The rooms were couzy and the interior... More

Beautiful property - great interior and loved the different seating areas in the courtyard and open spaces. However, I thought the hotel was a bit overpriced. And they were constantly trying to push their sister hotel Promenade for everything (where is the best bakery - "Promenade!", where is the best bar "Promenade", where is the best pizza "Promenade!"... you get...

We have only recently arrived in the hotel, but i must say that the service so far has been the best i have ever come across, between them knowing who we are before we stepped in and checking-in after having brought us to the room, to the incredible effort made to make us at home. The service as well as... More

A great place to relax - not a crowded hotel. The room (no 5) we had was huge. It had it's own private balcony. And there was a swing just outside our room. The room had a full size bath tub. The room had wooden flooring which was a bit slippery. The breakfast spread at the hotel was pathetic. We... More

We were looking for a leisurely relaxing holiday yet something with a personal touch, and with a whiff of regal heritage feel. All within a limited budget! Guess what, we got all if it and more at Dupleix. Amazing rooms, amazing feel, great ambience with old wooden architecture and sub tropical fauna. The impact enhanced by the evening Jazz, green...

Usually travel to Pondicherry on work and this time was no different, except for my choice of hotel--Stayed at Le Dupeix in the heart of Pondicherry's "White Town" for a change.
