We stayed at Mango Hill from 20th July till 24th July and it was one of the best holiday I had, it is an amazing property nested in a quiet place away for the city life. The staff is friendly and very courteous, the rooms are huge , clean and facilities are superb. I saw many reviews talking about food... More

The pool, the greens, the food, the archive - everything spot on! Totally recommend this place if you're visiting pondi. A few kms from white town but quite close to auroville and auro beach! You can hire a bike and that's all you'll need to reach any place easily.

I arrived there excited to see the room they have put up on the website. The french cuisine, the cheese tasting... but alas! It was not that pleasing. I stayed in the non-ac cottages right above the pool. Let me list down the good and bad points of this hotel: Good points: The room was neat and well-maintained It has... More

Very neatly maintained.. Great location .. Great food. Super view.. Superb pool. Food is a little pricey. Service was very gud. The new year party was a blast with good music near the pool. Best place to stay in Pondicherry. Even though it is placed a lil far from main town.. Everything is easily accessible.

Stayed here for a day and a half, and that's about how much a decent stay in Pondicherry is. The staff is pretty cordial and helpful in arranging things. The accommodation was clean. I took a suite considering the weather, was a good choice. However, whether or not you know how to swim- You SHOULD take a dip in that... More

My friend celebrated her 25th birthday at Mango Hill and it was made extra special thanks to the staff. They helped me arrange 25 white balloons and 25 white flowers to surprise her at midnight... That too at such short notice since I requested it just the night before. The resort is charming, great decor and gorgeous Thai cottages overlooking... More

After looking for 2 dozen hotels in pondicherry....I hit upon The Mango Hill..and what a place to be. We arrived at 7.30 in the morning but they did not think twice about giving us the room...even though we were booked from noon. We encountered 3 receptionists (Sorry! Did not ask their names), all three extremely polite and helpful. Absolutely stunning... More

The place is situated in middle of nowhere. Neither it is in auroville nor in town. Complimentary breakfast is just basic and same menu is repeated every day. Simple egg preparation is also chargeable. The spa of some Dr. Prem is Unclean, non professional and non committed. Don't waste your money. Food in reasonably priced and good in taste. Swimming...

Small hotel with a great swimming pool and a spa. The rooms are well kept with attentive staff. The breakfast isn't great though. Go if you're looking for a short escape. Stay in the pool cottages for a great view of the swimming pool
