Back from a wonderful holiday in India both in Rajasthan & Southern India. Of all the hotels we stayed in good & not so good, this hotel was certainly the most professional. The staff were excellent and the facilities very good. I would recommend this hotel to any traveller.

This hotel definitely comes under the top hotels category of Pondicherry and reflects class and quality from the moment you enter. The exteriors are modern yet traditional and so are the interiors. The main lobby of the hotel showcases a big central traditional piece near the lift and also showcases people enjoying a holiday in a modern way through 3D...

We will visit again- only for hotel, not for staffs. Hotel facilities are really good and location is good. Very few staffs - may be hotel is cost cutting. Also, when we requested for water - we got open bottles (Not sure from where water was brought).

This hotel is recommended for mid range budget. Standard rooms serves the purpose well. Hotel has all the basic amenities and there are two restaurants,swimming pool,gym and a bar. Food is just okay but service is very good.The wifi connection works fine. Staff members are willing to serve better. It is also located at a better place.

We visited on New years eve. This place is ideal for families. The rooms are clean and spacious. The location is wonderful as it central . The breakfast is lavish especially its south indian spread. The food service is little slow and portions are small in the restaurant.

Good hotel to spend you weekend with your loved ones. Good ambiance, spacious rooms, great restaurant, parking area, different pool for young & adults. But they insist us to wear or buy their own nylon dress to use the pool for which they charge atrocious amount.
