“Great weekend getaway at Le Pondy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

We spent a couple of days at the Le Pondy beach resort in Puducherry and it was a great experience. The place is pretty far from the city and the directions are pretty much non-existent but once you reach there, you forgot those nuances, The place is lush green, very clean and well maintained. Ours was a lake view room and not far from the beach and swimming pool. The kids enjoyed the pool very much since it was so inviting.

I have been to Le Pondy before as part of an office gathering. The place truly amazed me and I decided that I needed to come back here for sure with my husband. And we did recently in july. The resort looked brilliant with its special and historic architecture and the slight drizzle enhanced it even more. We were given a sea facing room on the first floor of the cottage and truly with the view from our room, we couldnt ask for a better break. The staff are extremely friendly right from the front desk to the restaurant to the swimming pool to the life guard at the beach to the spa staff. Special mention to Mr.Remesh,GM, who was in touch with us from the time I contacted him for a reservation till the time we left the resort property. Also the staff at the spa, Daisy, was so courtous and friendly. Thee rooms are spacious and have all the amenities required. The beach and the pool were very refreshing. Le Pondy is surely worth making it the first option for stay during any pondy visit. Will surely want to go back there!!!!!!:-)

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor have a great view of the beach/lake and the whole property. The pool vi...

In the last week of july 2012, we had been to Le Pondy. I must say the resort was simply great, very well maintained, very good food. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were well maintained , and the food especially the lunch and the dinner were very good. The resort is located in a very nice place, just opposite to the lake on one side and sea on the other. The beach which was very well maintained, not at all crowded, and must say the life guard was very helpful and took great care of us when we were near the beach. The whole experience was simply amazing and wonderful.

Room Tip: Take the room opposite to the lake.

This was our first trip to Le Pondy and as long as they maintain their standard, this is the place where we will always stay at.
The resort is beautiful, with greenery and peaceful atmosphere, very well maintained and is full of comfort.
We were there to celebrate our anniversary and we will always remember this day as they made it so special. Special thanks to Mr.Shibu for that who not only arranged a bouquet for me to present to my husband but also arranged a complimentary beautiful anniversary cake....and how can we forget the beautiful decorated room.
All the rooms are suitably designed with beautiful interiors and are spacious.
The staff is cordial and helpful, but I would like to make a very very special mention of Mr.Mutthu Krishnan, who was in charge of the pool and became our first swimming instructor. Its wonderful to visit resorts and hotels where you have such friendly and good people, who are not fake but have genuine smiles on their face.
Thanks Mr.Mutthu Krishnan, Satya Prakash, another gentleman at pool whose name we dint get, the spa manager, Sumi and Shibu...you made our 4 day stay extremely special and we would return to Le Pondy again and again.

Room Tip: Their all rooms are wonderful...we preferred the lake view hence opted for that..and we prefer the r...

I first visted le pondy in Dec-10, I've gone back there a couple of times, the most recent being in Augest-12. The place never ceses to surprise u n u never seem to get enough !
Firstly the location is brilliant, the property is in a quiet corner and had both the sea n backwaters next to it.
Secondly the layout of all catagories of rooms is really good, every room has a excellent view of either the sea or lake. All amenites that modern traveLler would expect are there aswell.
Thirdly n probably the most important feature is that the entire team at le pondy is excellent, they takecare of all your needs to ensure that your stay is good. Service is quick, efficent at all times.
I would like to make a speacil mention about Mr Shibu, the front desk Manager.
Le pondy is a excellent option if ur visiting pondy, either with family or friends, it is the kind of place that you would wanna come back to.
