If you are coming to Pondicherry for the first time this is the place to be. Few caveats before you get excited about this place. It's a property of Aurobindo trust so: No alcohol No Smoking No non-veg food and No entry after 11.15pm But it's worth sacrificing all that for it's located in the heart of the posh French... More

I stayed at this guest house last week with my parents and it is very good guest house for family. Rooms were very organized and tidy If you book sea facing rooms view is just amazing. We ordered dinner buffet food was simple, tasty and healthy. They are very particular about checking in at 2:00 pm and checking out by... More

Good to live for weekends. Specifically those want to have pleasant rest for work can go and enjoy here. Service is good. You cango out for Pondicherry's best tourist spots. So better for short stay. Plan well and check out for other accommodations also. But this one is good.

If you aren’t a finicky human being and don’t want to shell out much and enjoy your weekend getaway with the basic amenities, then this is the right place for you. Make a reservation for an overlooking ocean view room, I’m sure you’ll definitely be happy. Well, carry your favourite toiletries ‘coz they aren’t provided. Rooms are spacious enough to... More

A serene place to stay in Pondicherry, reflecting the values and policies of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram under which it belongs. The location is brilliant, right on the beach front close to the Gandhi statue and a walking distance from the Tamil Tourism Office, the Ashram, the French Quarter, Ganesha Temple, Auroville Boutique, Central Bureau of the Ashram etc. The...

The promenade is a door away, and ealry morning and evening you can join thise taking in the balmy sea breeze. The revamped, reclaimed beach beckons every moment. The rooms are spacious... More

Very very beautiful property just next to the Rocky Beach. The property belonged to the french lady which is reflected in the architecture. Clean and nice sea facing rooms, all basic amenities, clean bathrooms and linens. Near by places like Ashram and all are near by. This place has wonder food spread also, pure north indian and western food. Overall... More

I have stayed here a few times, and I have enjoyed my stay. The internet normally does not work. Sometimes the staff at the front desk can be lazy, someone by the name of Goona or something. Food, accommodations, simple yet pleasant. Great location. The laundry doesn't come the following day always--so be careful if you are checking out.

My review of The Retreat and this place would be identical. Also run by the Aurobindo Society, Seaside was my first host in Pondy. They have fewer sea-facing rooms, however all of them are amazing, they have a dining hall that charges 200/- INR for Indian guests and serves vegetarian fare for meals (if notified in advance) and also eggs...
