Reviewed yesterday NEW

Right across the sea, beautiful property We spent some good time at the sea with friends, there was katemaran also available at additional cost, a must try, saw fishes jumping in water. It was pretty exciting. Rooms are comfortable and spacious.

We visited the windflower at Pondicherry only for a day visit to sample their buffer lunch on a Sunday. I must say the Resort is stowed away in a quiet part of Pondicherry on the cuddulore road. It's by the back waters and has amazing views. The grounds are fantastic and very picturesque . The staff is veey congenial and...

The resort is a decent property that tries to be 5 star but falls short somehow in the over all look and feel. The staff is courteous and helpful throughout! Right from the check in to room service to other daily needs. However the food was really sad. Particularly the Christmas feast. Dismal is the word. The daily breakfast was...

loved our stay here :) the stay is value for money. No particular complaints, no highlights either. But a special mention for the restaurant, Bistro. Senthil Kumar, the executive chef was very courteous and it was good to see someone of his rank to go around the tables, making sure that all guests are happy with the food. Ganesh, another...

Outside the room was an appalling smell of sewage, with rubbish and old mattresses stacked under stairs, mops and buckets sacks etc left in corners, clean linen put down on dirty steps. The fridge did not work, there was a hole in the wall where the ventilation fan should have been. The towels were thin and smelled musty. The beach...

I am pleasantly surprised with all the great reviews. Having been to the other windflower chains, i find this one much below par compared to the other ones. Room is spacious, no doubt and that is where everything stops. Food doesn't have a great spread. Just 1 or 2 guys manning the entire place during breakfast and unable to handle...

Silent and peaceful resort facing backwater and sea. Have tasted breakfast, lunch, dinner. Everything is good. Luxury bed, comfort viewing and spacious rooms. Hospitality is good. Reaching this hotel is quite not easy as it located deep inside and one can't come out for any reasons than check-out.
