Wham in the middle of colonial side of Pondicherry, Le dupleix charmed us with its architecture. We drove down from Chennai hoping to find a place to stay and Le dupleix warmly welcomed us by offering us a quaint little room. We were told that each room has a different design and no two rooms have the same layout. Ours happened to be a duplex, a sitting area, a bedroom on top and bath in the bottom. Having not seen such rooms anywhere, my husband and I couldn't help falling for it immediately.
It is very close to the shore, a short 2 minute walk away - cafes and restaurants dotting around the place, we never felt the need for to take the car/rent a bike.
The staff are very courteous and helpful, you'll receive a warm welcome every time you enter the hotel.
If you want to stay here, book in advance because there are only 14 rooms in all! Now's the time to go to Pondicherry and book your place at Le Dupleix now!!
