We heard of this place from our dining experience at La Villa the previous night which was outstanding. We narrowly missed the lunch meal period by few minutes and was offered the snacks menu. But soon to realise the staff was extremely accommodative in offering the lunch menu to us. We loved the drinks, service and ambience extremely hospitable and...

We both slept and ate at Villa Shanti. We were booked into one of the suites, which was huge. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was roomy and ulta-modern. Being a suite, we had a separate living room area with a flat screen TV. My only complaint was that the seating for watching TV had almost no padding...

Located in the White Town, enter this place and the entire vibe of Pondicherry comes alive. The aesthetics of this place are thoughtful, intricate. Food is fresh and sumptuous. A satiating meal while soaking in the sun in their central dining area is what you should go there for - and come out impressed!

What a lovely hotel with real style and high standards backed up by enthusiastic staff without being precious. All areas of the hotel deserve recommendation. We have been in India for 5 weeks and this is first hotel we have noted them doing daily maintenance cleaning of the public areas, such a positive thing in a country where such work...

The overall experience was good as its walking distance from the Rock beach and other spots of the city. Can get a five star the next time if the...

I was really excited about staying here 'cause of all the rave reviews. But I should say, I wasn't entirely thrilled with the stay. First the nice things, I really liked the service here. The staffers by the front desk, house-keeping ones and also the ones in the restaurant, they were all very attentive and prompt. Their restaurant had a...

A charming little hotel, has no car park ( unbelievable for a hotel) buzzing with people wining and dining, lovely energy, good food and well located in pondy. The rooms are basic and comfortable, and the service not bad . There is John who seems to be the"go to man" and was very efficient :-) . Definitely worth trying if...

This place has great food and Ambiance. One of the best foods I had in Pondy. Only their version of Jalebi was a bit of a let down otherwise food here was excellent. Also the place is beautifully decorated, eating area is in abig open courtyard, we went for dinner so it was very pleasant.
