Rooms and bathrooms are very well maintained. The resort itself is so captivating surrounded by lush green coconut trees. My special compliments and wishes to Mr. Manoj Senan,...

Excellant location, the resort is further south of the city and has a private beach. Loved the layout of the resort with a live music stage and bar near the pool. Very cordial staff, great food and good beer...Cant ask for more for a quick weekend getaway. Good value for money. Highly recommended.

We visited Le Pondy with friends in April this year 2017 .In the evening we all went to the pool,came back to find our friend's purse missing .The staff had setup extra beds.He lost close to 4000 rupees cash and all ID cards.Just make sure you keep your valuables with u at all times.

Great place for a Sunday brunch south of Pondicherry town by about 30 minutes. You can get a large selection of food for Sunday brunch in an open-air colonial setting. Service is OK could be better but you are really there for the grounds and beach.

We stayed in private pool villa. Room was very basic ,old furniture. Small TV. Open bathroom very Dirty and scary at night . Food is very average. They don't have AC hall for buffet food. Very hot and unpleasant during lunch time. Private beach was clean. No facility from hotel on beach to sit and relax.
