We had a great time visiting Pondicherry. Thanks to maison perumal, the experience found a friend. What is striking about this place is the unique layout to a hotel carved on a south indian traditional house adorned with french thinking. Magnificent rooms with tall ceilings, unique floor layout and a huge bathrooom. They had plenty of electric outlets, usually important for someone like me who owns lots of gadgets.
We were pretty overjoyed on realizing that food is cooked fresh on the same day with the same employees through the day. Essentially, this place is like a family guest house but just super beautiful.People are outstandingly friendly and helpful. They will chat with you for hours if you wanted to and give you the personal touch of experience.
There are only 10 rooms and so you would be lucky to get reservation. I travelled with mom and wife. When they found that there was room available, they sweetly gave away the vacant room for my mom.
This place is also pretty close to the jetty and walking distance to Aurobindo Ashram
Have a great trip !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Tamil Quarter of Pondicherry is a place where cultures not only met, but melted. And gave birth to a way of life found nowhere else in the world. Maison Perumal is our tribute to that way of life. A sepia serigraph of another time - dusted off perhaps, but not retouched. ... more less
