Yes UBUD it self is quiet safe . There are no security guard here but was a safe place to be at . You may need a flash light in the night to walk to your room . But the place is worth staying . You won't regret staying here

Does the hotel allow unmarried couples? is it safe?
It's absolutely safe! In one of the best parts of Pondicherry. Regarding unmarried couples, I don't think it should be a problem. Although we travelled as a married couple, we have different surnames and the management did not particularly confirm our marital status.

"We did not live there"
"1st floor is better as otherwise you walk straight out into the courtyard restaurant"
"Visit if you like French food or want to try it out"
"Get Sea view Rooms"
"My review is only of the dining area and food products. I suspect that the rooms are noisy from the courtyard restaurant."
US$113 - US$206 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
