The property is beautiful with it intricate embroidery tableau by French designer Jean Francois Lesage and original wood carvings from the 18th century. We ordered the yummy mustard marinated red snapper with...

Le Dupleix is a 15 rooms house where the Mayor lived. It is now converted into a hotel. No elevator but it is best to stay at the penthouse rooms as you have the run of the veranda !!! Look down and you see the restaurant with a live band on the weekends. The deluxe rooms are spacious and have...

Le Dupleix was the perfect dinner getaway in Puducherry. We loved the food here totally. We had the Pondicherry styled Shrimp soup, Chicken Tikka and Murgh Biryani and the food was a gastronomic delight to eat. Ambiance is awesome as well. Would surely return.

Amazing is a very small word for this hotel. It's a quiet looking old French style hotel. Rooms are exceedingly comfortable. The beauty of this hotel is that no one room is similar to the other one. Staff is superb, very helpful and very warm. They will never make you feel as if you are in a hotel, they make...

Stayed here when we stopped in Pondicherry as part of our honeymoon, my wife and I recommend the le dupleix.

Very nice and cozy stay, nice rooms and good breakfast option. Very old French residence converted to a hotel, not very visible from the street too, but once you are inside, it is very different. We stayed in the villa room on the 2nd floor, had a nice rustic feel to it with a wooden floor and all glass walls......

We got in touch with Mr. Adam Oberoi a few months ago while planning our holiday to Pondicherry. He came highly recommended. And he was a huge help. Unfortunately, we couldn't get rooms on the dates we required at Le Dupleix and ended up staying at their sister hotel, The Promenade which was fantastic. In any case, we went there...

We booked this hotel because of the trip advisor reviews, the location. I'll admit I have a fondness for modern, simple design. That bias aside I was terribly disappointed with the condition of our accommodation and by extension the hotel's attempt to charge more than the going hostel rate for the room. The room needed a renovation. It was dark,...

Bit expensive based on how you book. However worth it. Close enough where you can reach the beach with a 5 mins walk. You can loose yourself with the exquisite ambience. Situated close to all the major attraction centres in Pondicherry.

Le Dupleix is an amazing fusion of the heritage French ambiance with equally great tasting food. I believe, this could easily be one of the best properties around.
