Don't judge a book by its cover. This was the first thought that came to my mind when I entered the guest house! Contrary to what I had expected from its look outside, the room was very aesthetically furnished. With only 2 girls travelling, safety was our primary and most vital requirement. Located on the main road, a stone throw away from Ashram and a hip-hop distance from the beach, it is situated in a good location. Walking back at 10 pm has never looked this safe!
A lot has been said about the breakfast provided here. To make it very clear, this place has a lot of foreign tourists and breakfast might be fine tuned to cater to them. Fruits, brown bread and flavored tea is the simple breakfast provided. With restaurants located within a few meters of this guest house, food should not be a problem!
This review would not be complete without a note of thanks to the owner of this place, Datta. Normal checkin-checout timings in Pondi are 12:00 - 12:00. But Datta was kind enough to let us in by 7:00 in the morning, a gesture that we really appreciated. She is a lady of various talents, special human connection with every one of her guest, being the most valued one!
This place is ideal if you wanna retreat. No TV, no disturbance, it provides you with a serene environment to find yourself.
