This was my first tryst with a hotel from the CGH group and the experience has been terrific. Right from the beginning, we were welcomed by very friendly staff who helped us with our check-in. Also greeting us was the GM of Palais de Mahe, Mr Dinu Ramakrishnan, with whom we had an extensive conversation about the CGH group of hotels, especially it's primary goal as a eco friendly sustainable hotel chain.
The hotel itself is quite an old heritage property. Located at less than 100 meters from the beach, its conspicuous French style construction can be seen in the high ceiling, thick white pillars, medieval style doors and windows and the bright yellow walls.
We had a scrumptious dinner and breakfast at the rooftop restaurant Les Alizés. Special mention to the head chef for cooking up some really lip-smacking delicacies consisting of Kerala style spicy fried Calamari, Crispy Baked Pork Chops, Prawn Mango Curry and Appam.
We also took the ayurvedic massages at the in house Spa which we found to be extremely relaxing and well worth the money.
Me and my girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed the one night stay and would be definitely stay again here on our next visit to Pondicherry.More
