The Finz restaurant at club Mahindra is a must try for sea food lovers! Chef Melwin created an absolute treat for our taste buds and would definitely recommend the sea food platter to all. I will be coming back for this!

Special mention to the staff at the Finz restaurant who were super kind and welcoming. (Chef Melvin, Karthikeyan and chef diwakar) best part is that this restaurant is by the shore which makes it even better.

Member with ID 2840997 - Booking Number # 368399, 6471029 & 6471030. This was my 4th time guest visit after Naukuchiatal, Kandhaghat and Varca to CM Puducherry. Your staff here was really nice and helpful. However, following things ruined my tour and I'm deeply disappointed with CM. Thankfully l planned IHG Mahabalipuramn while returning back else, my vacation would have been terrible. 1. Informed club via email & telephonically that coming to your property for our 5th Anniversary celebration however, club failed to even greet or pay any heed to the mentioned occasion. 2. No lighting or restaurant near beach. 3. Pathetic food and restaurant service, even roadside dhaba do better than you. Despite charging hefty price you provide disappointing food (except Varca) specifically near the pool. Poolside restaurant literally serve garbage in the name of food and drinks. 4. Roaming of stray dogs across the property is a common side. Had to be extremely cautious with an infant and a kid traveling. 5. Approach road cry for repairs, had it been mine property l would have personally invested on road. 6. Washrooms, an average 3 star hotel provide better equipment & space. I don't know how you people sell members hefty memberships claiming them to be a resort. I'm really happy that I'm not a member of your prestigious club and enjoy my vacations with reputed group of hotels who understand guest needs. A suggestion: CM needs to introspect on urgent basis that why guests are unhappy with food across India despite paying hefty charges as guest fee and food charges. Regards, Rishabh Aggarwal

Front end desk -5/5; recieving the guests, timely check in and checkout process has been easy; Location rooms and neatness is excellent, a peaceful place, the private beach is also maintained well, though there's no dry kitchen, but the balcony view of the garden is soothing. With respect to veg food, it's good.. however compared to other club Mahindra authentic flavours that we had experienced, expectations went a little low. The buffet spread is wide. Sone more local cuisines and continental dishes could be increased in ala karte maybe. A lot of activities take place, especially the evening events are quite energetic and fun filled. All the staff is super friendly and made the stay more comfortable.

The food was very good, specifically the starters. Malvin the chef and Karthikeyn the server were really humble and served the food very properly. Kalamari, crab and red snapper were the best. Would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in trying out wide variety of seafood. The veg options are limited and not that great, but one should not expect it from here. Definitely a place to visit again. Located at the seaside, the ambiance is great, the slow breeze and the sound of the waves in the backdrop adds to the already great experience.

This was the 4th visit to CM Pondy and I've always love going there for many reasons: 1. Private Beach - my kids love spending the whole day there 2. Sea Food / Food - Am a sea food lover and CM serves great sea food and also in their usual restaurant food 3. Hospitality - Every time I go there, CM staff keep impressing me 4. Rooms - It is always up-kept 5. Entertainment - My daughter and son never want to leave that place for the loads of activities and fun they offer. Adults too have avenues for great fun. For me beach and playing Tribord is just enough. A loud shout out to the below folks who made our trip a lot memorable :- 1. Vijay Anand, Front Desk Manager - Mr.Vijay helped me sort out my waiting list reservation and was always out there will all ears 2. Kamalesh, Chef - My 2 year old son has a health condition and had a special diet requirement. Mr. Kamalesh was available 24/7 to went a great way to help get some quick food for my son to sort out his hunger time. It made our trip so peaceful. 3. Avinash - Mr.Avinash who was part of the restaurant team helped my sister-in-law, who came with us for the trip with her 5 month old baby, and was carving for sea food. Though she was not able to make it to the Sea Food restaurant, Avinash helped getting the Sea Food platter to our room, which was just too awesome. Would love to go to CM Pondy again and again. I would recommend it for a 2 night stay if you want to only be in CM Pondy. Else, 3 nights if in case you want to go to Auroville and street shopping and having street food in and around Pondy City Beach.

I stayed here on a business visit, the rooms are quite good and spacious with a balcony. The food was good, especially the sea food items at the beach restaurant. There are plenty of options to play around for kids and families. The resort is a bit too far from the city center, but you get a good beach attached to the property.
