Location and swimming pool are the only plus. Rooms are not comfy, A/C needs repair. Staff in reception and restaurant is friendly however, housekeeping and swimming pool staff are not too friendly. You only get 2 bottles of water as complimentary, and you don't even get a welcome drink free here. Shuttle is available from gate, but drivers are not...

One of the best resorts in Pondicherry. Food is good. Desserts need improvement. The best part is its location which is bang on the beach. The staff is courteous. The only drawback is that it is far away from the White Town. All the rooms are good. No need for the ocean view rooms. The spa and massage is worth...

We went on a family vacation to Le Pondy. The property was very clean and beautiful, picture perfect! The pool was big and maintained well. Food: we tried both buffet and A-la carte and everything was delicious. The private beach was peaceful. Paradise beach can also be accessed by foot. Impeccable service!

The place oozes romance, quiet far from the main attractions in Pondicherry. But the most amazing place anyone could stay! The ambience, food, pool, beach, property - overall everything leaves a lasting impression in your mind and you can just think of going there again. The reception is done beautifully, with a wooden chess board, the glass over bridge takes...

We have the opportunity to stay at Le Pondy last weekend. We found a good deal online and hence decided to explore. We booked a lake facing villa, which was the cheapest option available. Once we reached, we were taken to a villa that had a private pool. Only at the time of check out did we realize that we...

My two BFFs and I were on a short trip to Pondicherry; we chose Le Pondy as we wanted to relax and let our hair down and this resort looked every bit the right place for this. The place is really charming and the sea beach attached to the resort is one of the best in the country. I would...
