“Ocean Spray Hotel , Pondicherry”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

PONDICHERRY OCEAN SPRAY was nice, very nice!! Curving down from the lobby and walk over the huge resort over wooden floorings over the expanse of water . Buggies take you up to the seaside restaurant - best fish n chips we have ever had ! and we are senior in age with experiences of travelling and hotel n restaurant stays . We took many photos and truly enjoyed our days there. Again no wifi but clean areas. Food and service seemed fine .. no complaints at least.

The resorts design and layout are superb. Nice rooms, Jacuzzi is a treat, beautiful and large areas to walk and relax, nice large pool. The drawbacks are no direct access to the beach and the poor service. The staff come across as not well trained and not well managed. The reception staff were very poor, abrupt and even rude. No proper systems seem to be in place in many areas of the resort, and this was most evident in the pool area which badly serviced and maintained.
It has the potential to be one of the best resorts in South India, if the place was more professionally run. The silver lining was the room service, very efficient and very prompt. Overall still worth a visit, simply for the beauty of the place!

We had gone with our entire family for 2 days after reading the reviews. The property is amazing and amongst the best we have seen The welcome was lousy, the restuarent had less staff and nobody to help. The next day, the rooms were not cleaned proactivedly & and we had to request Housekeeping staff to come and clean rooms.Overall i must say if such a property improves it's service in all aspects and be more professional, it could be the Best Resort in India/Asia

I stayed there for only one day (12/27), but experience was very good. Despite full occupancy, I was able to get good service this time. I will certainly want to go back to this place again. Rooms were little expensive for the category I chose - it (view and size) was not very different from my last stay, not sure why premium rates were charged.

Room Tip: comes with a premium - description in their website does not convey it all.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Conceived as Pondicherry by the French and affectionately known as 'Pondy', the city has its conspicuous French connection. Away from the hustle bustle of the metro's, this quiet little town offers the peculiar mustard-yellow colonial heritage buildings, virgin beaches, a medley of cuisines, the quaint spiritual wave and the alluring art. Here, soaked in the whiff of the Bay of Bengal and stationed in the ripples of its own beautiful man-made lake, Ocean Spray grasps the enchantment and the intimacy in its own breath. Bonjour Bonheur Ocean Spray Resort showcases the nature at its best. The Majestic grandeur architecture overlooks the overwhelming swimming pool with the sound of the gushing cascades and the smoldering view of the sky. Interiors reflect the warmth of its aristocratic ambiance. Villas with private swimming pools provide an exclusive composition. One of its kind night club quenches the thirst of the night life birds. The mesmerizing experience of candle light dinner on the boat in the lake is just meant for those special romantic moments. Statuesque trees give the unmistakable view from the esplanade. ... more   less
