“Very Luxurious & Beautiful Resort.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

It is situated a little inside the city, to be exact its 2km from the main road.
But once you enter the resort its very beautiful & very well maintained.
We had gone there as part of a Team Out-Bound, & it is big enough to accomodate
around 80 people & plus there were some other guests too.
The rooms were very clean, with all the required amenities like an eletric kettle to make you own tea,
good lcd tv, split ac,etc.
The bathrooms were good & the hot water was available for 24hrs, the soap & shampoo are liquid filled in the
bottle, so no hassles of having to manage the small soap & shampoo bottles. A hair dryer is also provided.
The whole resort is very well maintained, the lawn is very well maintained & so are the flowers over the whole resort.
The beach is some 100m from the fence of the resort, & it is exclusively for the guests of the Le Pondy resort.
The swimming pool is quite big with a fixed depth of 4.5m, alongwith a poolside bar.
The food served is quite good in taste & hygiene as well, also there were a lot of options for the breakfast lunch & dinner, there would be around 3 non-veg preparations & 5-6 verg preparations alongwith 2 types of soups & to end you will have 4-5 sweet dishes.

All & all I would say its a very good Luxury resort, a bit expensive but if you have the money it is well spend.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

Working out to nearly 9000 INR its expensive.clean, medium size .On the beach close to estuary.Beach not ideal to swim, heavy currents .. they do have a vigilant guard on the beach.Approach is poor and sign posting is less than adequate but built pretty.
Breakfast- above average , reasonable number of dishes on buffet( do not expect mexican or Dubai standards here) Service was positively poor in the dining room, the staff command of english was less than adequate and they have a habit of ignoring.Wrong dishes was served .

Having said that the pool was clean and good size, sea facing rooms have good size bathrooms -ask for the 1st floor as ground floor rooms have obstructed views.

Booking if made by phone can be difficult i am told as the person who booked this struggled to to confirm the booking - i understand has to be made by phone in india ...

Would we visit again.. probably yes..

Room Tip: ask for 1st floor sea facing
