“Stay, Location is good...dn't except good north indian food”
Reviewed 27 February 2011

This hotel is nicely located ...abt 1-2 km from the beach. Markets., Eateries are close by.
Service is excellent, nice swimming pool & health club....bt the Treadmill didn't work...
North Indian food is not good..but South Indian food is excellent...
Rooms are comfortable....
Good for budget of 2-3K (stay+food) per night...

Remember that Auroville is quite far and there is no good public transport to reach there

This is a swanky "modern" hotel, in a good location in the city. Not too far from the market or from the promenade. The rooms are clean, and the breakfast (which was included in our price) was pretty decent.
My favorite part was the terrace. It has a small swimming pool, which was not super crowded, and I managed to do some yoga there one morning.
I have to say though, the art inside the hotel -- especially -- the main hall was quite over-the-top. Also, the hotel itself is quite jarring in its location because its the only high-rise, new building in an otherwise crazy marketplace/neighborhood.
Overall, however, I'm hard pressed not to recommend it, because its reasonable price and location make it good value for money.






Aesthetically though, this hotel

My only problem with this hotel is : Safety and Security. The hotel is situated in a not so good location in Pondicherry. They have a couple of liquor stores right opposite to them and is unsafe in the night.
The banquet hall is rented out for functions every day and the hotel policy allows the function guests to park in the hotel and that means that hotel residents may have to park outside till the parking is cleared.
During our stay we were asked to park outside the hotel when we arrived at 8:30pm and when we came back after 30 minutes someone had smashed the windshield of our car. Nobody saw this incident and there is no security guard in place for the hotel guests cars asked by the hotel management to park outside. This changed our whole trip to one nightmare trip. The hotel management refused to take any liability for the damage.
This was one nightmare trip and one nightmare hotel in Pondicherry that I would ask other guests to stay away from this insecure facility.

The hotel Atmosphere & interior are eye catching. Good hotel in the city for the amount paid. The service was excellent by the Restaurant staff & front office. Of all the hotel I visited so far – I recommend this as top hotel in Pondicherry
