We went on a 3 day long weekend to Pondicherry. The first day we stayed inside the City at a place called Ananda Inn which was an absolute super hotel to stay. The next day we checked in at Kailash Beach Resort. We checked in by around 4pm. We had booked 3 rooms and we got 2 rooms on ground floor and one room in first floor. So we asked if we could get all 3 rooms on the same level, the manager said only these are the available rooms, take it if u want or u can leave. Since we had booked it online through travelguru, we had no choice but to take the available rooms. Then we went into the rooms, we were in for as shock, the Beds were so hard, it was like stone bench. The bathroom had 50 year old fittings which could break any moment. There was no Health faucet and had to use tissues. The water flow in the bathroom was so slow that we had to wait for ages for the water to come, such low pressure. The Comode was in a pathetic state, some age old one with broken seat. Then the biggest of them all, the A/C is not working. It was not at all cooling the room. Only hot air was coming. Also there is no TV in the room, and the only thing u can do is Swim. The food is also damn expensive, for a dinner buffet the charge 600/= and that too not too many varities.
So we had go to the city which is 12km have food and come back to sleep in this dungeon.
Also for the price we paid, around 5600/- it was an absolute waste. Also the rating given I think it deserves only 0.5 star or no star rating.
So please stay away from this place if you want to enjoy a stay at Pondi. You can check other good hotels.

- The ancient fishermen hamlet of Pudukkupam established during the Chola period (IX-XII century) is located 10 kms south of Pondicherry city, in the Coromandel coast of the Bay of Bengal. Being near to the estuary of the Chunambar river and the Indian ocean it has a privileged ecological position, not far from the roman ruins of Arikkamedu, a port established in the first century of our era.
