I stayed here for 4 days on 2 occasions. Once in April and once in July. Great location - a stone's throw away from the sea-face. The hotel was very clean and insanely comfortable. Rooms were very spacious and the bed was as comfortable as the bed at home which made the stay really great. The bathroom was very clean... More

Awesome view of the Bay of Bengal from the Roof top restaurant - "Bay of Buddha". Sea breeze + Beach view + Pan Asian food = An excellent combo and a not to miss place in Pondicherry. P.S:The veg spring rolls are out of the world :-)
