Pondicherry was an extraordinary experience. I give it two years before it becomes one of the most happening places in India and Asia. It has all the potential to become another 1980s Bali. Incredible mix of East and West, beautiful colonial French past set in the midst of Tamil Nadu, relaxed people and atmosphere...
The best way to discover Pondicherry is to book a few hotel nights at the Dupleix. A former 18th Century house, it welcomes you with a 200 year mango tree and an unparalleled atmosphere. Even the wooden ceiling in the breakfast room is a great example of French-Indian wooden carving.
Food is great, rooms are beautiful, location in the heart of the "Ville blanche" is perfect. The staff is really nice: Ms Usha, Ms Anita, and Mr Frederick will always try their upmost to help you and share their love of Pondicherry with you.
Probably one of the hotels we've ever staid at, anywhere. Where in the world can you be projected back in Dupleix's 18th century? Even time capsules can't do it that well.

It is a 14-room luxury heritage hotel, nestling in an 18th century French colonial villa, originally built for the Maire Mayor of Pondicherry.
