don't look elsewhere. This is one of my favorite hotel stays -- was there for 7 days. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was great, the rooms were so unique. This may be one of my favorite hotels in India. Loved it. Stay here, don't go anywhere else in Pondicherry.

Food is tasty and ambience is really good. You get Indian food only here with limited options but whatever you taste here is really good.Service is really good. Even with MAPS , finding location was somewhat difficult.
