We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. This hotel is located right on the beach road, with excellent views. We booked a sea facing room. The views are fantastic. The staff is very helpful and took care of all our requests. The breakfast buffet is also very good. The pool is quite small. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice hotel specially with the location. Right off the promenade is the promenade. decent restaurants - they do have 3 restaurants. the swimming pool was surely a let down. overall good rooms. nice bright rooms. nice furniture. ask for a room overlooking the ocean. the other views are not great.

The place was nice and we loved the rooms but its way too expensive for what it is. The cost of food is not included; only the limited, unfresh breakfast buffet on the bottom floor. The staff in that restaurant weren't very friendly either. For one night, two rooms, and a total of $460, not worth it. That being said,... More

If you want a good view of the beach from your room, the hotel is the best option in Pondi. You can also stay in the heart of White Town close to all attractions. The rooms are clean and spacious, food is good and the service is excellent. The staff were very polite and quite helpful. I would prefer the... More

The hotel has a very friendly staff, the location is decent, even with a non-sea facing room, it is worth living in this hotel. The view from the ground floor restaurant is great. Will checkin agin when in Pondy.

The hotel location to perfect to enjoy sunrise, sunset or just a walk on the Promenade beach. The food and services are exceptional. It has a rooftop bar and restaurant that offers a great view of the sea. The rooms are spacious and very well done.
