We are not that kind of people who r interested in bricks and monuments. We love nature and nature identical destinations. Didn't had much to do or see in white town Pondicherry, except for visiting few churches, cathedrals and one off eating out. we were largely confined to this lovely resort le Pondy. They have private beach, we all loved...

All of us specially my kid enjoyed the stay at Le Pondy. The staffs were very accomodating and the ambience too good. A la carte orders take some time but the buffet spread was decent. The room was neat and clean. The private beach access is the USP. Overall , had a good stay at Le Pondy.

A lovely property on the beach with private access to the beach. However it seems to be neglected for a long time with the management not showing much interest to invest in it. The staff serving you aim to please and are trying very hard to do their bit but lack the passion. Rooms are average (rates are far higher...

We were booked into the top grade of room with a. small private pool and courtyard but we were disappointed that there was no view - we asked for a downgrade to a room with a view, but it was a weekend and all rooms were full. The food was good, but there were lots of small things that were...

We visited this Resort in December and it turned out to be one of the best we have visited. I think this is the only resort which has a private access to the beach. The rooms were clean and large. The management has taken effort to clean the beach too, as only this part of the beach is clean. The...

The resort is very well placed on the beach, with a sea view from most rooms. The cottages are well appointed and well spaced out so that they do not intrude upon each other. They have a large verandah with lovely bay seats which are comfortable enough for anyone to stretch out their legs up for a good read. The...

Le Pondy is a lovely property, with a unique location of the beach on one sid and backwaters on the other. Pleasing architecture too, with a predominance of white contrasted by thatched roofs. The only aspect that could do with a bit of improvement would be the buffet for dinner and breakfast. But that is only a very minor drawback...

This hotel is bit far away from city but it is very beautiful and well maintained. It has access to beach which is very close to Paradise beach. We booked lake view room and rooms were amazing. Service at the hotel is very good. Food is very costly. Few food items are tasty but few are not good. As of...

We visited Le Pondy for 4 days in December 2016. It w as lovely and sunny there and it's a beautiful property. We enjoyed wandering around it, walking down to the beach just outside the hotel or just chilling at the pool. They have a pretty extensive buffet spread for all meals or you can order ala carte as well....
