If you appreciate the fine details of colonial heritage architecture - this is the place to stay. Restored with impeccable taste and bus-loads of love.
Each room has its personal touch.
The feeling is more like staying at a home than a hotel - as there is a very personal care for the guests and the place.
Extremely calm ... felt like a relief to arrive back in the calmness of the green courtyard after walking the streets of Pondicherry.
Neighbourhood is great with really good food places close by.
And breakfast (both continental and south indian) is served each morning and shared with other guests at a long wooden table over looking the courtyard.
The Gratitude Heritage Home is a labour of love and beauty.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ‘Gratitude’ is a home and a place of retreat in Pondicherry, India. It has been restored lovingly over a period of three years maintaining the authenticity of the architectural style and method of construction that was prevalent when this house was built. What gives ‘Gratitude’ its true essence is the quiet joy and peace that gives this home a healing atmosphere which is rare to find in the world outside without compromising on comfort. ... more less
