It's a budget resort located at the peaceful stretch that connects to Aurovill. Slightly away from the sea-beach but nice place with all necessary amenities. Service is a concern here and so is the meal served in cafeteria. Choose this if you have nothing better in hand.

A nyc resort with a distance of 8 km from city. Quite serene and near to auroville beach. Breakfast is complementary. Rooms are okay okay... swimming pool is also there. Service is not up to mark. But all n all its good.

The Worst Hotel I've been to! Rooms are not what are shown in the photographs. Location of the property is very nice and easily accessible. A little off road but you cannot miss it. Autos and cabs are easy to get. Very near to Auroville and 15 minutes drive from White Town, Pondicherry. The Check-in was quick as I had...

The resort is located 4-5 km away from the main city in the auroville area, keeping the surroundings calm and peaceful. I have stayed in the resort a couple of times and had always been a memorable experience. Would definitely recommend this property.

The staff though are well meaning, are not trained in hospitality. The dining premisis is small and inadequate. The facilities do not...

Staff are courteous and well behaved. Scenery from the balcony is nice....mangroves in the backyard. Stay could be better if smoking odour on the corridor is taken care. While walking on the...
