The Radisson Resort Pondicherry Bay awaits you in a quaint coastal fishing village of the small yet varied Pondicherry on the southern coast of India. Nestled between a lagoon and the popular Paradise Beach, the serene resort creates a perfect balance with the lively nearby city center, which attracts many tourists with its unmistakable French connection, cosmopolitan flair, and inherent ambiance. Pondicherry's beautiful colonial architecture is reflected throughout the resort's design, with Franco-Tamil inspired interiors and the use of local materials like the classic Athugudi floor tiles from Chettinad. Guests can enjoy maximum comfort and wonderful views of the surrounding area and lagoon in the 46 chalets and 5 villas.

Very clean, hospitable place. All staff members were very courteous. I especially want to call out their front office manager, Mr Aditya Ram who was extremely compassionate and was quite exceptional in the way he handled check-in and check-out. Dinner and breakfast were excellent. Their chef customized our order to fit my daughter's taste by offering just macaroons. Most importantly he was just humane and it was obvious he cared that his guests had a good time. Highly recommend this place.

This is one of the best hotels we have been blessed to spend a few days in India , we recommend it to anyone looking to have a peaceful and homely experience.

A small resort with very good rooms and staff eager to please, placate and leave you with doles and happy feelings. They are good in check in and hospitality which comes with that. Courteous staff and all with good room service standards and housekeeping. They try to organise karaokes/ dance events at the restaurant for guests. Property is small with a beach outside the property and a smelly walk to the same due to a fishing area of backwaters on the sides. Not much in other activities so it’s a room only place. Given this average kind of place they try to cover up basic deficiencies of the place in the best way but have failed repeatedly to improve the food many have written about for months and the hotel seemingly has been deaf on that. Had read about this and expected food to not be their high point but the experience was substandard. The first experience was a high tea with frozen fried pops served first day and frozen fried veg spring rolls the next day. Empty tea flasks and average tea did not help. Are you kidding, better not have a high tea or if you do, make your chef work for some better fare like sandwiches / samosa etc than fry crumbs and serve to guests. Same night we ordered food at the restaurant. Worst pork chops. overcooked and stretchy had to return one and managed to eat another with regret. Next morning with breakfast starting at 7 and did not have a guy to give omelettes till 7.45. Spread was ok with some good fare but the basics are wrong. Not sure if it is the chef or the food and beverage manager who needs to be fired but someone needs to be, for this place to justify its cost. Maybe then one can move the star count upwards for this resort

A very relaxing stay. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed everything. They serve high tea in the evening and one can enjoy that while watching the sunset. The breakfast was sumptuous and the restaurant had some exciting options to order from. The swimming pool is clean and of a decent size, it was relaxing to go for a morning swim. The only negative was that our bed mattress was two single mattresses combined rather than one large mattress. It was uncomfortable to sleep on. The hotel staff was courteous enough to add an extra duvet to make it less problematic.

Great stay in this nice and peaceful hotel, outside the busy city life. Room was great and big enough for a family of 4. The most was the big balcony with sofa and table and the huge bathroom. All very clean. Staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast buffet was under expectation for that level of hotel. The prices for room and restaurant are too high and not justified for this hotel.

This hotel upholds the standards maintained by the chain of Radisson. The ambience is remarkable with great service provided by staff. Special mentions: Jancy, Suparna, Goutam and Rubina who were very courteous and nice. Housekeeping staff Vighnesh and the mechanic were just as sincere, punctual and dilligent with their work. Events such as magic shows, Karaoke and mime acts make sure that your stay here is not boring. The overall experience was amazing.

Honestly it was a pleasant and beautiful experience. Highly recommend to those who are looking for best weekend destination. The place is serene close to beach and the breakfast is excellent. Property has lot of activities to keep you refreshed, away from your busy schedule. Entire staff deserve appreciation for their friendliness and excellent service. Cleanliness is top notch and food is enjoyable. Felt tariff is a bit on higher side but believe me you will not regret. I am sure you will feel the same after your stay.
