The ancient fishermen hamlet of Pudukkupam established during the Chola period (IX-XII century) is located 10 kms south of Pondicherry city, in the Coromandel coast of the Bay of Bengal. Being near to the estuary of the Chunambar river and the Indian ocean it has a privileged ecological position, not far from the roman ruins of Arikkamedu, a port established in the first century of our era. It is between this hamlet and Pooranankuppam, the rice bowl of this region.

RKN Beach Resort - A terrible experience First of all, iThey dont have private beach. Also, the beach connected in not maintained. It was full of garbage. Second, They have no attention to hYigiene. Corridors stink with left over food plates and crows. Third, They offer RO water in open glass bottles. Such a shame. A mineral pet bottle is a basic which also they dont do. Fourth, The food is pathetic and unreasonably high charges. I suggest, go to white town and relish authentic food. Fifth, All amenities are damaged. Pools are very dirty. Sixth - the complimentry spa is a just foot message machine...seriously !!! Seventh - They are not sorry for all this. Only good part is - it is close to beach and if you can walk 500mtrs then you can enjoy proximity to beach. This hotel we had booked because Le Pondy was fully occupied. I regret booking this 3rd class hotel. They should not call it a resort. This is neither for Family nor for couples. This stay is good for nothing.

I used to like this place when they were service based and not money based. A water bottle is 60 rs! You can charge whatever how much ever. But why 60 rs for a water bottle? They use the remote location to scam money out of the visitors Now everything here is money, Only one front desk staff will be frndly the tall guy is just a joke to service industry. And don't get me started on the in room dinning person, uff. This place isn't worth the money your gonna spend here trust me. All said, this resort is neat and clean, food is OK. But breakfast is a joke I asked for a French Omelette, you know what the cook told " we are told not to cook that". I was like what? It's cheaper than masala Omelette to make. It has become a budget oriented hotel. And if they keep this thieving ways. They will go out of business soon. I think you'll spend the same at le pondy. They have expensive room, but they stand for something Premium. This is a honest review

value for πŸ’ΈπŸ’°.Resort is very huge property.If u are not a person who criticize petty issues,u vil enjoy a lot.Beach is good to visit in the morning,as in evening times,there mi8 be people from locals roaming there.Rooms were good.Resort has 3 swimming pools and kids enjoy there a lot.There are so many activities availble,but some kita like tennis racquet and shuttle racquet needs to be changed. We asked for a single large bed but what we got is two seperate beds also the staff informed that all the cottages have seperate beds only.The Staff in the reception were ok not so helpful.Staffs in the restaurant were helpful,but the main issue is with the buffet they arranged through out stay in Independence day holiday.The food was not so great and u will see the same items daily 😭😭😭,also there is total mismanagement in arranging tables,plates etc.. Overall we enjoyed a lot πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.Some changes here and there will make everyone enjoy their stay πŸ‘

We stayed in RKN for 2 Nights from 10.09.2021 to 13.09.2021 - Family Out. A good resort to stay in Pondicherry & I would suggest strongly here as Beach resort in Pondy is very limited and RKN is the best among the one in terms of Budget, Property, Ambience, Amenties, Kids Play Area, Spa, Bar,etc. Staffs are so kind & helpful. Private Beach is good which can be accessed from 6AM to 6PM with Resort guard would be available for supervision. Foods are so delicious whatever we tried. Half of the time we utilized room service & we dont find any delay in room service for foods & oher needs, we got on prompt service. Maintaining the garden is so good. Three Swimming Pools, Park, Badminton Court, TT, Tennis Court, Cricket Pitch mostly avaialble for all guests. Overall BEST STAY! We enjoyed a lot with 3 days & highly satisfied with beautiful memories. Note 1: Whoever plan to RKN, just carry the Ice Box with Ice pack. You can get the Fresh Fish in the Morning everyday which is located few mtrs from RKN Property(Walkable Distance). Then & there you can get the fish from Fisherman who came from Sea & price is cheaper which I never imagined. So anyone intersted, just try with Ice Box as we have missed one :( due to non-avalability of Ice Box). Note 2: Whoever is planning from Bangalore, Please take the following route as per my experience in Sept 2021. Bangalore - Krishnagiri - Vellore - Arcot - Cheyyar - Vandavasi - Thindivanam - Pondicherry. This is the BEST Route towards Pondy including 4 Tolls. Total 361KM. Road Stretch is Excellent. 52KM is extra compare to normal route, but you will be happy more. Please DO NOT TAKE / CONSIDER THE BELOW ROUTE Bangalore - Krishnagiri - Chengam - Thiruvannamalai - Gingee - Thindivanam - Pondy. Road is very worst & please do not try and you will be getting tired in half of the stretch. Even Thiruvannamalai - Thindivanam also not good as so many road construction are following in. So, Please avoid it. Total - 309KM. Hope this information will help you all.
