Le Pondy is definitely a good, clean resort with spacious rooms. The rooms offer required privacy and the balcony with a huge sitting area is unique and offers you nice view of the open lawns with nice breeze rejuvenating you. The swimming pool and the beach- both are well maintained and are the best factors of this resort. Staff were... More

Its located off Cudallore road & 15 minutes drive from Pondicherry city. The USP of the hotel is that it has direct access to Paradise beach & if... More

The first impression of this property is beyond impressive. Until you wish to receive service from them. The staff always seems so confused. They are so shy and not at all confident. We went as day guests to have lunch and "enjoy" their facilities. But we were repeatedly asked our room number by at least 4- 5 staff. There is... More
