Good place to relax by the beach side with good bar, indoor games and a pool. Restaurant is very good, with good buffet spread. This resort is at a walkable distance from the beach and has boating too.

All rooms are with Balcony. But if you are looking for Balcony along with garden sitout, you need to go with Suite. And from Airport its 11.6kms. Unsure of charges tho

The last km or 2 is a little tricky with narrow road n some turns but just follow google maps n u’ll reach d right spot! From Mumbai to chennai fly down n then by road it’s 2.5-3 hrs drive to Pondicherry which is an awesome highway so no worries there.
