            Great place to unwind”

            Beach, Pool, Service, Buffet breakfast. When we were staying at the hotel it was not crowded. The pool and beach are well maintained. Friendly staff always helpful.

            We had stayed for 2 nites during first week of September. We had taken 3 lake facing rooms. On requesting through email for 2 groundfloor and 1 upper floor room, the hotel allocated the same. We had booked thro Agoda and got a good deal with 1 nite complementary stay. Only problem was that we had to pay for the 2nd day bkft eventhough it was reflecting as complementary bkft on agoda's website. Infact, we paid a higher room rate on Agoda just because it stated that breakfast was included. Agoda itself had 2 room rates for the 1 nite complementary stay offer for lake view room. We chose the higher one as it specifically mentioned 'breakfast included'. At the time of check-in the hotel reception informed us that according to their policy, only the 1 nite stay is complementary not the bkft. We tried calling Agoda both on the day of check-in and check-out. There was no response. They only have an overseas contact number and noone was picking up the call. So, this incident made us regret booking thro Agoda. The resort is in a great location with the lake on one side and the beach on the other. It is so nice to get up and look out at the lake and boats plying on it. A walk on the beach was highly rejuvenating. Early morning walks at beach highly recommended. We even managed to see some dolphins frolicking in the sea. For stay in Pondy, it is Le Pondy that should come to mind. Great place.

            We stayed at Le Pondy with my family and booked 4 rooms. I would recommend all travellers to Puducherry to try this resort which is a place of experience in itself with everything systematically provided in the resort from an awesome restaurant to Swimming pool to a private beach which adds to the beauty of this resort. Staff members are so helpful that for a moment you would forget whether you are at resort or your own home. I had a fantastic experience with Shri Bala and Shri Sandeep who helped a lot during my stay. I would certainly visit this resort again in future. Thanks Bala and Sandeep and Le Pondy:)

            The place is bit inside from main road of Pondy and also outskirts of main Pondy where you have French colony and Promenade beach. Lacks good restaurants nearby and in house food for dinner is expensive. But it stands out on availability of private beach though they close the gate to beach at 6pm due to govt restrictions which is big negative considering you can’t sit near the beach or sand at night or post 6pm. Breakfast spread is awesome with lot of Indian, continental and South Indian choices. Pool, internal ground and overall resort is damn good but none of the room is sea view if you are booking normal deluxe room.

            My wife, son and I stayed at Le Pondy for 2 nights and we were completely blown away by the place. It was way beyond our expectations. It can be a little confusing to get the the property but just follow google maps and you should be fine. The property is HUGE! They have an awesome pool and a secluded beach adjacent to the resort. Food was mind-blowing. Though we did not try the buffet, the spread was really vast. We would definitely consider staying at Le Pondy again for our next visit to Pondicherry.

            One of the very few properties with direct access to paradise beach. The resort was good. We had booked two sea facing rooms. The rooms were well situated. Sea may not be visible from the ground floor rooms (unless during high tide). But the vast play area in front of the rooms made it up since we had young kids who wanted to play together. Few amenities varied from room to room e.g. we had two rooms but only one had the safety locker. The bathroom space was huge but the space was not well utilized. They could have added more amenities or added more amenities. Owing to covid situation, the pool and spa facilities were unavailable. However given the huge crowd they attracted on a long weekend, the buffet area was packed with guests moving around without masks. The beach is easily accessible and they provide with towels and chair on request. They have a lifeguard to watch over guests. Overall experience is very positive and I would recommend this resort to others planning to visit Pondicherry for the beach.

            This place is amazing to detach from the world and relax ! It’s almost at the end of Pondicherry which makes little far away from city but if you just want to enjoy at the resort then this is a best place. The private beach access is very well maintained loved spending time there. Only concern I had is the switches. The plugs are very loose I couldn’t charge my phone they need to look into it

            We stayed at Le Pondy 4 years ago and were very happy with our stay. On that basis we booked to stay again. It is clear that the property has been let to run down a little from our our last stay. It needs to be spruced up to bring it back to its former level. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool, gardens and beach areas are very good. My biggest complaint is the access to WiFi from our room. It was a hit or miss if I could connect and when I did connect the speed was awful. If you need to be connected with reasonable speed then this place is not for you.

            Staff Location Pool

            I stayed at this beautiful hotel for only two nights, wish it had been longer. I chose it because of online reviews and a good recommendation from a friend in Delhi who had stayed there previously. Maybe because I had introductions from my previous hotel, La Villa Shanti, I found the service and attention we received from the staff to be outstanding, I just hope all guests are treated the same way. We stayed in a sea view room, perfect for this time of year with the breeze coming directly onto the balcony. The room was spacious with an enormous bathroom. I don’t think I have ever stayed in a hotel with such a huge indoor shower, it was also very powerful. The room had a large wide screen tv, plus there is also a safe, kettle, hairdryer and minibar. A mosquito repellent plug in is also provided. Amazingly, weighing scales are hidden in a cupboard, although whether this is meant for weighing yourself or your luggage. I am unsure! The pool area is fantastic, exceptionally clean, with towels provided, and also beautifully illuminated after dark. As the resort is rather remote you are obliged to eat here. The breakfast is a large buffet selection that suits both western and Indian palates. There are dedicated chefs who make eggs of your choice plus Indian delicacies. On our first night we wanted butter chicken which was not on the menu but they were happy to oblige and it was extremely tasty, but the parathas were not as good as those in our previous hotel. He meal prices were higher than those in my previous hotel in the Old Town, but the wine was actually cheaper! Service in the restaurant was excellent, special thanks goes to our waitress, Pinky. My companion used the spa facilities and was very impressed. The beachfront area in front of the hotel was very clean. I was also allowed a late check out from the room at 2:30pm instead of 12:00 noon at no extra charge. I would recommend this hotel whole heartedly.

            Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay with Le pondyin the pool villa. Pros include friendly and helpful staff, nice location, well maintained grounds and ample parking. The cons would be the breakfast selection which is limited choices,repetitive and unappetizing. Nonetheless I would recommend Le Pondy and hope they will improve on their breakfast menu as the location isn't very conducive to find restaurants nearby unless you drive a few kilometers into the city.

            Le pondy was an alright resort...clean. staff tried their best to be accomodating. My room was rather small..with an outdoor garden...which was actually not necessary...but added to the aesthetics of the room. My overall stay was alright, but i had to chase after my laundry since they had not given me back my laundry despite me sending my clothes through 24 hours before. My laundry came back smelling bad. I had not realised it until i left pondicherry. Out of 6 pieces of clothing given, i could not use 2 pieces. Luckily i was coming to the end of my trip, and did not need the laundered clothes desperately. But hotel staff should pay attention to these details. Staff require training on how to handle customers because they talk in a rather abrasive manner

            Great romantic place. Pros: 1. Has access to beach through resort back door (6 am to 6 pm). 2. Beach area has dedicated life guard and well maintained with some sit outs. 3. Rooms are good, restuarant is good and so is the swimming pool. 4. Place is huge and has backwater lake on one side and sea on the other. Once in the property, feels great. 5. Lawn area is huge. Cons: 1. Indoor games are not maintained at all, like badminton, tt, carrom... small effort and they could easily maintain these. 2. Play area for young kids are not maintained and was under maintenance. Not expected, as they charge so much for room, they should maintain these. Overall, a must visit place in pondy, little expensive for sure, if they can work on cons they can make it better and worth the money. Will recommend this place, specially for couples.

            WoW! at first sight”

            Private beach, Lawn & well trained staff

            The road to the resort is unassuming, the entrance is also a bit of a let down. but, all this vanish the moment you start walking towards the reception lobby. the well manicured and green lawns are a treat to your eyes, the lobby is also of good quality. the staff are polite, young and friendly. they were quite helpful in showing us different rooms before a choice was made. The inside story - Once inside the room, there were couple of observations; being with two young children (aged 5 & 2). the material used in construction is primarily wood and glass. the gaps between the door frame and the glass door made an easy pathway for ants and other small insects (it had rained the previous day) also, the heavy glass door can be dangerous for unattended children. the open area inside the lakeside rooms could have better utilized. another issue I confronted in my 3 nights stay was the limited secured parking. I wish they had covered secured parking for guests which is missing. but, the courteous Staff Ms. Satya assured of managements efforts to build a proper parking shortly. the feedback is for managements positive action to make this great resort to a fabulous one. The private beach, lawns, and staff are par excellent. especially like to thank the room service for the complementary dal khicdhi for our lil one and attending to our every single request cheerfully. will certainly visit again and hope to see some of my concerns addressed.
