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. And it was an absolutely welcome change, The woodwork, furniture, paintings take you back in time to the colonial era, but with all the comforts of a modern hotel.... More

I travel to Pondicherry once a year and I always make it a point to dine at Le Dupleix. The property has a story to tell and you need to stay and dine at the hotel to feel it. I am a sucker for good food and the staff here at Dupleix definitely walks the walk and talks the talk.... More

The landscaping at the property is just fabulous makes for a very chic girls night! The red snapper and caesar salad were my favorites, they have an extensive beverage menu as well. The service standards are really good, the staff makes sure you're attended and looked after throughout. I highly recommend Le Dupleix for a nice evening out

I must share this amazing experience I had during my recent visit to Pondicherry. This place is historic and its restored and modernised , but still has that old world charm. I loved the food , its aromatic , light and at the same time quite filling. Being a vegetarian i also found some good choices .

The food is also excellent, and we had a really scrumptious breakfast, as well as delectable lobster for dinner....since rooms are limited, the hotel doesn't get toooo crowded, which is... More

It is a 14-room luxury heritage hotel, nestling in an 18th century French colonial villa, originally built for the Maire Mayor of Pondicherry. Now restored and modernized the hotel is an architectural masterpiece showcasing the life of the 18th century French Governor Marquis Joseph-Francois Dupleix.
