I feel particularly fortunate to have had the opportunity to recently spend three nights at the wonderful Meeranjali Homestay. It is a beautiful oasis of calm and I cannot recommend it highly enough! Email correspondence when making initial enquires about room availability was prompt, informative and courteous. My hosts, the affable Pradip and Chitra were a complete delight and from... More

was made to feel very welcome in this homestay. It is well situated just off a main street, 5 mins from the seafront and close to a selection of restaurants. My hosts gave me lots of good information about Pondicherry including a map. Lovely freshly made breakfast - a mixture of Indian and European. The hosts are members of the... More

Location : everything in Pondi is near by to this place. Hosts: Chitra and Pradeep are very gracious hosts and a fountain of local knowledge, but for them we would never have known about the various departments of the Aurobindo Ashram catering to different crafts, A must see! Room: the room was very well decorated, comfortable and clean. The whole... More

I went on this trip to Pondy alone. It was my journey inward so to say. The experience was just amazing. Chitra Aunty and Pradeep Uncle provided me with so much warmth and affection, not for a moment did I feel that I was not with my family. From guiding me to visit best places to accompanying me for stroll... More

We stayed here one day because of our tour schedule. It was a very nice, clean and simple homestay. It has all the normal facilities, but is was somewhat old-dated. So your are having all the normal facilities as a/c, wifi, television and it's located in near the boulevard. A good place to stay. The breakfast was very good.

The owners Chitra & Pradip certainly make you welcome here. They are fountains of local knowledge and are the kindest people that you are likely to come across in all of India. The room is spotless as is the entire house and certainly made our stay in Puducherry all the more special. We also opted for breakfasts with them which... More

Very pleasant and congenial stay in a fine 'home away from home'. One of those rare experiences where the place fully lives up to recommendations!! A great value. Be sure to tell taxi to go to the small street in back of the Ashram visitors center. Many will not know the street name. Free WiFi is,also available.

We stayed for two days and just loved it. Chitra, Pradip and their son Ritam were the most wonderful hosts you can imagine and helped us in any way possible when we were involved in a minor accident, much more than would have been their responsibility. Our room was clean, absolutely European standard and in the mornings we were served... More

We loved the 2 days of our stay at Meeranjali. The hosts were really nice & non-intruding as the room was in the 2nd floor in their bunglow. Everything in the room was in great condition & amazingly clean. The best thing about the Homestay was it's close proximity to the main attractions & eateris in Pondi. Also, the Promerade... More

Our stay in Pondicherry and the Meeranjali was unfortunately only one day. Much too short for such beautiful locations. We could only imagine what a wonderful place the Meeranjali is. An absolute highlight we were served the other morning, a typical South Indian Breakfast. Mr. Pradip was at very great help to us, he gave us many hints for an... More
