Reviewed 13 January 2017

This property is located in a peaceful neighborhood and has spacious rooms. There is a little bit of inconvenience due to renovation work going on. However the setting and the private beach are really the plus points. The food is good and worth a stay if you want to relax.

The rating I was planning was 3 but increased it as the location is good, rooms were neat and nice. Close access to the beach. And we really loved the 'on the house' year year party. It was a total surprise and enjoyed. Staff was quiet hospitable. Now coming to the food part...very average stuff compared with price and quality....

Staff can't communicate neither in English nor in any other language apart from tamil. Rooms are old and house keeping wouldn't come to clean it everyday if your staying for more than one day orders take hours to come. Overall a bad experience

Hi We stayed here for 7 nights. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. The pool was great. The beds and pillows are so comfortable and the staff are very friendly. We had breakfast here every morning, the food was ok but could be better. There was a lot of work being done but it didn't really affect our stay.

Came to India and in particular Pondicherry with the usual concerns of a first tome visitor to India. The hotel is undergoing renovations but still has a old world charm that they are retaining. Rooms are large and clean, again with Indian charm. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool is grand and cooling. Loved our stay.
