Le Pondy is a travelers delight. We were there for two nights, on 13th and 14th June 2012. We had booked the sea facing room. If you want some quiet solitude, leaving all your metro horn's away, this is the place. The beach is quite awesome and we enjoyed the sunrise each day. I shot lovely photographs of the sunrise. They have lake facing rooms, sea facing rooms and pool villa's, all of which are quite spaced out nicely to enjoy privacy. The cottages are surrounded by well trimmed grass and lovely lotus flowers. The food is quite okay but the choice needs for improvement. The staff were quite friendly and helpful. The cottages are quite close to the sea, so you needn't walk for long. It is advisable to venture inside the beach between 6am to 6pm. The most important omission is a covered car park. Be ready to get inside a roasted car, bathing in the sun all through the day. I am sure these guys will soon provide one. On the whole we enjoyed our stay in this resort, and we are planning for a second visit.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms and luxury villas would be an ideal choice.

Le Pondy is a very beautiful resort with excellent staff and a feel good factor to it. However it is about 7 Kms from the main city, which means you would be required to hire a full day cab in case you wish to travel to the city. We had booked a sea facing room here, but it was under maintainance. So we got upgraded to the presedential villa with a private swimming pool and what an experience it was!! The pool is heated, so you can get into it at any time you wish!! There is a nice sun deck and a kitchen in the pool area. The resort has a big common pool, which was a big attraction for children. Food layout was fantastic!! Would love to go back to this place!!

Room Tip: The Presidential villa is very cozy.

Le Pondy - A beautiful resort with nice landscaping surrounded by beach and the lake. The rooms are quite spacious and well maintained. The staffs are quite friendly and responsive. Quality food with more options, especially the south indian food items are very tasty. The swimming pool (with Jacuzzi) is awesome, my 3 yr old daughter had a great time in the pool. The private beach is neat and clean, there is always a lifeguard to take care of you and your kids. Kids play area is very good to keep kids busy. If you happen to visit during summer, yoiu will end up staying only in the room the whole day or you can chill out in the pool. Will strongly recommed this place. Planning to visit again (but only during Nov-Jan).

Room Tip: Choose the one on the first floor to have a better view

we had a great experience revisiting this resort after our last visit to it,just a few days after the Thane cyclone last year 30 Dec 2011. the resort looks totally fresh,renovated....it was a May evening that we decided to go for a dinner outing in Le Pondy.
The resort was fully booked with an event,but we were welcomed like kings and took a seat by the wonderful swimming pool and the live orchestra,in front of the restaurant.
White indian wine was our choice for our drink before ordering our food. The Chef himself came to our table to suggest the Prawns Kerala Style....as we had some doutes regrding their preparation. The lady waiters were outgoing english speaking north indian girls,very welcoming and charming. The restaurant in charge was very polite and professional and we did enjoyed our meal by the pool side. We do recommend this place as an evening choice for dinner for Pondy firends and expats....excellent service and reasonable priced.!

It ws our first visit to pondicherry n we me n hubs decided to go thru trip advisor reviews to pick on a hotel. We wer looking fr something ultra luxorious something relaxing away frm the routine. Hd heard abt the promenade bt they wer overbooked our eyes wer set on something wch hd a touch of modernity n traditional n yes there it ws le pondy didnt disappoint us one bit
We hired a self driven suv frm chennai took the beautiful ecr rchd pondicherry in abt two hrs it took us almost an hr to cross the town n rch cuddalore wer the resort is located the narrow road drives u to the resort inbetween the village coconut trees n traditionally designed huts n fishermen nets welcomes you it wakes you up frm yr tiring journey wthin minutes you see the expansive resort evn before you park yr car it seems they wer already waiting for you yr luggage is carried on electric cars n chk in takes place we had booked the pool villa fr four nights wth meals the villas hav traditional thatched roofs the typical south indian carving on the main door is extremely attractive u r lead in the villa wer there are these sun bathing chairs nxt to the private pool attached wth a kitchenette n an open sky. . the room is simply done up can accomodate good five adults though wer a small family of two adults n two kids the frosted glass door leads u to the rest room wch has small garden attached to it..
The resort maintains the beach right in front fr their guest wth a lifeguard wch def comes as a priveldge if u hv kids wth you he almost baby sat my kids n oblidged us some nice clicks too..
The food hd huge variety bt almost hd a southern flavor to almost all dishes i craved to hav sumthing north indian not to forget the manager gave a personalised touch n ws taking care of all guest wth equal fervor all in all an awesome place to stay ten on ten to make us feel so comfortable keep up the good work le pondy sure to come bck

Room Tip: Pool villa is the best
