We stayed there last weekend, very nice property, very good food & very good service. A colonial property with top class service of Sarovar group will transport you to France the moment you enter the hotel. The food was yummy. There is no swimming pool in the property but they have tied up with their group's other Hotel - Promenade... More

After seeing some positive reviews of this place, we decided to give this place a try. We reached around 8pm (a bit late, we agree). As soon as we entered the place, we were awestruck by the setup. We went inside, things started falling apart. We waited for almost 5 minutes, no one came to our service. Finally someone came... More

I stayed here with my wife and kid in Nov'14 (13-15th). Booked this hotel after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. Believe this property was designed and built by the founder of HiDesign. It used to be a collector bungalow I was told. It is an amazing property but construction activity nearby was a bit dampener. The breakfast was good but more... More

The restaurant food was great , everything was great except between the hours that breakfast took place, no one really seemed to know what to do . To get a cup of tea would be hit and miss and what... More

A great hotel to stay in though I didn't stay here, but had a dinner there. However, the settings looked lovely and some of the fellow diners, who were staying at the hotel, said it was a lovely experience.

While reading up on hotel reviews on TripAdvisor, my husband and I were debating between The Promenade and Le Dupliex and we were finding it difficult to make up our minds as we both liked different hotels. Luckily we extended our trip and thus ended up fulfilling both our wishes by staying 3 nights at The Promenade and 2 nights... More

This property symbolises the soul of pondy. Pristine white with a dash of greenery on the outside, and a lovely courtyard with green and blue seating imparts a picture perfect setting. My wife loved the spatter of gonda flowers as well as the waterfall that is on in the evenings, into this sculptuer that resembles a shivling. Our room 11... More
