We spent five blissfully relaxed days at Dune, lapping up the eco-freindly ambience, the fabulous cuisine and the private stretch of beach. We were welcomed with a delicious hibiscus drink and upgraded to a garden suite, the elevation offering a picturesque view of the huge property. The cottages are delightfully varied, some naturally cooled and thatched, with beautiful south-Indian architecture... More

One of the few places that I really loved! The organic food, good service, choice of food and the access to an almost private beach! My daughter loved the place and the machan we stayed in. It was a unique experience and I'd recommend it over other options (villas) in the property!

Excellent Ambiance and Environment, Relaxing with Nature, all new and changed life experience from your busy and stressed life. Its Eco-friendly stay, away from your Technology world. Enjoy your life out of the normal world. All staffs are very supportive and co-operative, timely service has to be compromised to some extent, out of the world stay for Peace of Mind.

A splendid place to spend a long weekend. Nice accomodations, pleasant surrondings, beautiful spa and a quiet place to relax. However, there is obvioulsy a religious place just outside the walls of the compound and for several hours we were disturbed by very loud singing and chanting from the nearby local temple. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but... More

We went to Pondicherry to celebrate our friend's 30th birthday and were excited when we discovered dune. It seemed like the perfect place to have a nice, relaxing time. The architecture is amazing, the location is perfect and the beach is great. BUT, the management is completely apathetic. So much so that our trip turned sour, when it could have... More
