“An oasis in the hot and dry Pondy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

We went to Pondy about a week ago and chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. Stayed 2 nights. This property is quite good. The room was a nice size and so was the bathroom. The TV (22" lcd) was ok, with a lot of channels. The bed was also good size and comfortable. The much needed AC chilled the room up in no time. Room had a mini-bar, a small fridge with a few soft drinks and tea/coffee machine.

This hotel has all facilities - swimming pool, gym, spa etc. and all in good condition. There are 3 restaurants within the hotel premises out of which the poolside one has the best ambiance. The breakfast is also quite a good fare but ends at 9.30AM - wish they extended it till 10 as guests on a holiday don't like to wake up early.

All in all a good experience. My only complaint is that they couldn't shift me to a room with a poolside view and they me extra tax while my makemytrip voucher clearly said that this price includes all taxes. Other than these minor incoveniences, it was a very pleasurable experience.

The hotel is very well situated from the beaches of pondicherry. I loved the spacious room with all the basic amenities in the room. Felt like I didn't had to carry anything with me from home. The room has a royal touch and makes you feel special. The checkin was very smooth even though there were lots of travelers. I straight away headed for the pool. One thing to keep in mind before going to the pool is that a swimming cap is mandatory. You may carry your own our purchase by paying just Rs 100 at the pool. After a goo swim I went to the spa center and had the best massage till date.

The breakfast was lavish and consisted of European and South Indian dishes. I was full and the waiter informed me that they are having biryani festival for lunch. I couldn't wait for the lunch. The restaurant is awesome an the biryani I ordered was chef's special. It was enough for 2 but the taste was so good that I finished it over the complementary pint of beer.

All in all I will rate it the best place to stay in Pondy and at a very reasonable cost. Must visit for food and luxury lovers.

I have stayed in this hotel approx. 10 times & I make sure every time I go to Pondicherry, I stay here & enjoy the peace of mind there. The pool side restaurant add a life to the whole day work & the mild music lightens up the day. The proximity to the beach & market makes this an ideal place to stay & also hang out. The staff makes sure they do everything possible to make you feel comfortable.
