We had a wonderful time at Dune Resort. Sri Umapathy is an excellent and perfect Gentleman and took care of us well and made our stay comfortable and exciting. He also gave an wonderful description of the property emphasising the philosophy beyond each and every place. Resort is located near the beach. We enjoyed the nature. Food was very testy and suited to our taste. We are looking forward for my daughter to visit shortly. Thank you for all the staff.

This place has such a great vibe. From shampoo to ketchup, everything is made organic and most of it is recyclable, which is environmentally friendly. The private pools don’t even have chlorine in them instead salt is added. Every visit feels like a refreshing experience

To start with, it was a very pleasant stay at the Dune Eco Beach. We came to Pondy for a short vacation to celebrate my parents Anni and Dad,s Birthday and it turned into a memorable one. The wood house was awesome with good interiors, cosy rooms a n Beach is just a walkable distance from here. Breakfast was very nice and the Chef prepared meals according to our tastes and needs. The staff was very pleasant Thanks to Mr. Umapathi and the team for their very warm hospitality. Buggy is super quick and people are very welcoming here.

Nestled amidst lush greenery, the eco-friendly village provided a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The attention to sustainable practices was evident throughout the property, creating a harmonious blend of luxury and environmental consciousness. Uma Pathy's musical talents added a magical touch to the tranquil ambiance. Our time there was a rejuvenating experience, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to return to this eco-paradise.

Amazing stay at Dune Eco Village, Pondy. Staff were very courteous, helpful and always available. We had taken a room with a private pool, and it was as good as what was shown in the photos. Breakfast spread was decent, and the property itself has many things to do - spa, kerala ayurveda treatments, among other activities. Will definitely recommend to friends & family.

It’s a hidden Gem in outskirts of hustle bustle of Pondicherry. It’s a Huge 40 acre property with a private beach. You will find yourself in village setup with isolated and private villas. While booking you might see options like standard rooms , however each to your surprise is a separate Villa or Hut. They come in few different options like Woodhouse, Stone house or Huts and each of them are unique with their own usp’s. So connect and choose as per your preferences. Large groups ask for adjacent villas as you could be placed pretty far away from each other. You will feel and taste the see breeze , plenty of green with exotic and tropical green to give you ample shade. Place is great for families looking for private spaces for living and community spaces like restaurant, Indoor pool , Yoga and Ayurvedic spa etc The golf cart or buggies are available in few mins to any part of the property to move you around. Making your commute easy across the property. Restaurant serves decent food around the clock and you will get ample options. Food options and quality could definitely do better. Staff is really nice and friendly and offer good personalised service , big thumbs up 👍🏼 Property Manager is a friendly smiling face and you can spot him around every now and then . He’s got a wonderful voice and sings really well. Overall a very good experience for my family. We loved the stay 🙏🏼
