I had not chosen this place when I planned my trip as I was hung-up on something in the heart of city and so took an older guest house, Swades from the same ownner. Towards the end of my 5-day stay, post an early supper I decided to have a look, for my reference and end up kicking myself for not going for it. Given the fact that Pondy is such a compact city, the access too heritage town did not seem an issue which seemed to have been behind my decision not to opt for it. The place is brand-new building with spacious and well-constructed and fitted apartments and rooms. What really blew me off was the spectacular veiws the place offers at such a price. Great place for large groups. Given the nature of neighbourhood the place guarantees privacy and peace. The view of lighthouse and port was a real treat. The decor- re-used vintage doors, stained-glass lighting, french windows, bollywood posters from Bombay's Chor Bazar, the roof-top solarium, etc. are quirky and reflect the owner's invidual personality. All in all a great and value-for-money place for people who treasure own space- Lots of it.
