I stayed at Club Mahindra from 12-15 of April and I cannot recommend it enough, especially to families and couples.

The resort itself is absolutely stunning and if you're someone who enjoys being far removed from the central area of a place, you couldn't be happier.

Special mention: The sanitization of the entire resort as well as all of their efforts to make for a beautiful vacation for their guests during this pandemic, needs to be lauded.

Let's start with the stay itself, the rooms were really nice. Studio rooms with superb washrooms, a nice AC and excellent housekeeping services. My girlfriend and I were there for our anniversary and, Mr. Hari, a housekeeping staff member made us beautiful decorations on 2 nights and we couldn't stop smiling. :)
Mr. Seenu, our room manager was extremely sweet and very welcoming. He made it a point to check on us every day and we truly appreciate his excellent hospitality.

On the note of excellent service and hospitality, a special mention to Ms. Progga, who helped us find a bunch of essentials during our stay there and helped me better plan the trip before we reached. A special mention to Ms. Ranjini too, she helped answer a bunch of my queries before the trip too. I would also like to mention Mr. Prabhu at the reception who made our stay even more comfortable by helping out.

As for the resort itself, it's beautiful. It is right on the beach and we found the beach to be completely empty most of the times and EXTREMELY CLEAN. So kudos to Club Mahindra for their exceptional maintainance as well.

And now for the food, my God the food.
Club Mahindra has their restaurant by the beach called Finz, and it was excellent. Hats off to Mr. Madhan, the head of Finz for making us feel so comfortable and the head chef, Mr. Anuprasath, the Head Chef, who was so sweet to alter some of the dishes to better match our pallettes. Thank you so much for that! Can't recommend the following dishes enough:
1. The Prawn Curry was absolutely delicious, so much so that we ordered it multiple times over the trip.
2. The grilled fish was excellent.
3. The calamari is absolutely delicious too.


Overall, I would like to express my gratitude to the ENTIRE STAFF AND TEAM at Club Mahindra Puducherry, for their excellent hospitality at an absolutely stunning resort.

Thank you so much for an amazing stay team, looking forward to coming back soon. :)

Regards,
Parth.

For me this is the favourite CM resort as it is very close to chennai and can reach in 2.5 hrs. For an hot and humid climate like pondy, the resort is loaded with greenery all around and full of vegetation . This is my 3rd trip to CM Pondy and completely enjoyed. Was a bit concerned with the pandemic around but the staff did a very good job in line with adhering to the protocol. The food is awesome and special mention to the chef - Nivas who took good care.

Room tip: All rooms have good view..

Absolutely loved my stay with Club Mahindra. The resort is surrounded with greenery and a beautiful beach . Although a little away from the city ,really didn't know how 5 days flew by!
The staff was very courteous and a special mention of Chef Nivas & Chef Kamlesh ,who prepared amazing dishes on request besides the delicious buffets that they serve.

Absolute politeness was shown by each one of the staff.
Three nights and days in the resort passed off like a dream. Fabulous evenings spent in the exclusive beach, mouth watering dishes during dinner and comfortable sleep in the cozy rooms.
The day started with more than heavy, delicious breakfast prepared by Chef Nivas and his team, who treated every guest like their own family.
Ms Labonniya of the club, with whom I was on telephonic contact since a week prior to our visit, was of great help.
We are sure to visit this club again when ever possible.
A BIG Thanks...

Room tip: Sorry, we were NOT given any option to choose our rooms.

First family outing after Covid outbreak. Well deserved one. Helpful and courteous staff. Should try breakfast buffet, it is just awesome. Well maintained rooms with centralised control. Nice and clean beach. Careful with Google wrong tagging of location.
