This hotel is on the promenade and close to auroville which is a 20 min drive. The rooms are elegant and spacious. The view from the sea facing rooms is breathtaking. The pool is small. Buffet for breakfast is excellent and the staff are courteous.

We decided at the very last moment to make a trip to Pondicherry. Called the hotel at 12.30 am for reservations for the same day. Even though some of the rooms were going thru a makeover, the Hotel was very obliging and managed to give us a sea-facing room. 30 mins later we had our confirmation, and all of this... More

This place is owned by Mr. Dilip Kapur of HiDesign fame, and managed by Sarovar hotels. Starting from a seamless car pick-up at Chennai Airport, to the meal (meals, as the locals say) recommended on the way to Pondi, at ganesh bhawan (near Acharapakkam), to the warm reception, this property stands out in the country. The GM is ever smiling,... More

A real cool place for a quite evening in company of friends. The service is quick and professional. You can enjoy the view of the coast and beach and sip a cocktail prepared by the staff. Better reserve for a table if you plan to go there on a weekend.

This is one of the best hotels to stay in while in Pondicherry. The rooms are nice and so is the location and the ambiance. The staff is very courteous and the food is lovely. The pool is nice and as you step out of the hotel there is a beautiful view. The bar specially is super cool.

We stayed at the Promenade in September for 2 nights. The location (and hence the name) makes it a convenient place to stay. Most of everything in the French influenced part of the UT is about 15 minutes away - the ashram, the temple, restaurants, ashram supported handicraft shops, and the local utensil/brass market. The positives - the location, lovely... More
