"We reached the Resort after 3pm. Place was very welcoming. I contacted reception , unfortunately she was not very friendly or she was angry , we were not given that kind of customer treatment like how we got in other 5 star resorts like Zuri Goa. Ignored it and we went to our room. Place is awesome no doubt. We were guided by one of the staff who again was just doing her job. No interaction no smile nothing. Again ignored it because the place was really nice. I was also not very keen on getting some good customer service for sure. Aircon was pretty good . Rooms very clean. We did notice blood stains at the place where pillows were placed. Again we ignored and did not want to be tough customer always complaining. Property is worth a visit. Beach very close to the property but since it was hot outside just a small visit was made. I do visit ***y places and write reviews for others and also indirectly I promot their business. For this people like me need very customer service and this place was lacking it big time. Room service excellent. Food is Best in the resort. I don't know what this chef does but the food is magical. Try anything and you will not regret. Thanks to kitchen team and special thanks to the chef. Only name I can remember is Abu Becker. This person is somehow having the skill to handle his customers very well. When I got to know this guy for every small thing he was coming for our services. Thank you Abu. So the days went by and we never gave any trouble to the house keeping to clean room etc. We kept room clean any way. Finally the day was for check out. We were handed over a bill for food and beverages. We saw the bill and found out that there was some mis calculation and raised it with the reception. She took a long time to check and finally we remembered that the previous night two drinks were ordered. Each drink was 500. So the total was 1000. But the bill showed 2000. Since we could not wait we decided to pay it and get over with it. After the payment was swiped and we got the printed slip we exit the place and almost moved the car. We got a call from the reception and a guy hands over a VOID slip !!!!! That means the resort accounts department had cancelled the successful payment with out our consent !!! They handed over the voided bill and said we need to swipe again since there was calculation error from their end ! We did not have any extra cash or money . The person spoke to us and said the money will revert in 15 mins !! THAT was a LIE!! First of all it was their mistake and they had added 1000 more in the bill and for that mistake they voided our payment with out checking. Some how we ***aged to make that payment once again. Till date bank has not given the money back to us. They are still investigating the issue. My question to the ***agement is , 1. Who gave you the permission to void our payment with out discussing it with the customer. 2. It was matter 1000 Rupees , so they could h"
"The resort is a short drive through the town and down an almost dirt road. The moment you enter the resort, its quiet and with lots of lovely open spaces. The rooms are spacious. Ask for a beach facing room especially on the 1st floor so you get a pretty view. They also have rooms with small pool, but the pool is not well maintained. The front wall for the room is a full glass wall with glass door door with a gap large enough for mosquitoes to get in. So keep the curtains closed in the evenings. Even the Louvres in the bathroom window have no netting so again space for mosquitoes to get in! Poorly designed. While the room is spacious, the woodwork is getting to look old. The bathroom is very basic with a shower area and decent size counter with basin. It looks like the rooms could do with a makeover. The lawn by the pool is large and open, good for evening events like the one we attended. The restaurant is a large open area so be prepared for mosquitoes in the evening. Food was excellent. Breakfast buffet had a lot of choice. It has a spacious bar with a great view though unfortunately we did not have time to use it. There is plenty of parking and they offer rudimentary space for the drivers (chauffeurs) to sleep. This is a common practice in better hotels in India."
"One should must visit Le Pondy and enjoy the stay....The main thing in your holiday is Stay and Food. We are Jain so we have a very limited option for food but I must thankful to the restaurant staff for their best dishes in Jain from breakfast to dinner. All chef's are too good. Restaurant staff is so polite specially Ms NAGESHWARI took very good care of us. All resort staff is good. Overall best experience and memorable stay. Thank you very much the team LE PONDY"

"Spent 4 nights, last week with wife here. Stayed in a spacious villa, though a little aged. This resort is constructed with a water based theme! The buildings stand on artificial flowing water lagoons! Early morning walks on the resort walkways with the green coconut trees in abundance, and the bird calls were lovely! Colossal swimming pool, well maintained. It was a pleasure to do laps swimming! The beach, accessible through the back gate was not exciting, with the crowded fishing boats and huts! The resort grounds were well maintained. Courteous and friendly staff. Fast service! It is 17 kms away from Pondy, which is a little tedious. But ideal for a quiet and calm holiday! Wide range in the food menu. Quality and tasty food, though very pricey! Extensive spread in the weekend buffet! Amber restaurant was well ***aged by Mr.Senthil. Restaurant staff Mr.***i and Mr.Rajarajan were very helpful and friendly! Thanks, guys! Nice place to spend a weekend! "
"A very nice resort on the beach in Pondicherry although access to beach from the resort closes at 6pm but opens at 6am. Very beautiful resort, clean spacious rooms with balconies over looking the small pond and the swimming pool. Breakfast spread was limited but dinner spread was good. Overall a good place to stay but around 15-20 minutes drive into main Pondicherry city and the promenade."

70, East Coast Road,, Pudhukuppam,Keelputhupet, Villupuram, Tamil Nadu, India
"We keep coming to this place again and again. This resort has a concept of village environment with modern stay facility with air conditioning. Positives: 1. Rooms are quite big surrounded by nature. Every room has a different theme. 2. One can have a walk in this huge property in a safe and secured environment even at late nights. 3. Clean Beach right next to it. 4. They grow crops in-house and have a nice cow shed. 5. Peaceful with birds chirping all the time. 6. They provide bi cycles inside the property. 7. Have a nice play area for kids. Not so positive: 1. Though in our room the bathroom was big with bathtub, the flush was leaking all the time. 2. Variety of food can be improved. 3. We took two rooms, one was good but the other one didn’t had the bathtub 🛁 and not so good even though we paid same tariff for both.. Overall a good experience and it’s a concept of the place and nature due to which we keep coming here !!"
"We stayed at the Dune Eco Village from December 28, 2019 to January 2, 2020 in Garden Room 1. First off, the hotel does not provide an electric kettle in the room. So if you want a cup of tea or coffee (or, as in my case, hot water to make milk for a baby), you have to call the kitchen for it, and they can take anything upto an hour to give it to you. For 24 hours while we there, the flush in our bathroom wasn't working and I called the Reception 7 (*SEVEN*) times requesting them to fix it; each time, I was told that the hotel would send someone to get it fixed but nobody came and, as a result, we spent 24 hours filling buckets and throwing water in the pot. On two days, there was no running hot water in the sink or bath, and I had to call the Reception and ask for it to be fixed. The food service was a joke - the room service menu was spartan (a single A 4 size sheet of paper), and at the restaurant if you asked for the a la carte menu, you would be given the same A4 size sheet. On 28.12.2019, I tried ordering a pizza through room service and was told the hotel could not make pizza. Then I asked for a sandwich and was told there were no sandwiches either. I then requested the kitchen to just send two slices of bread with butter in the middle and cut into two parts, and I was told "we will send the bread and the butter separately - you can spread the butter and cut the bread yourself" I was absolutely stunned - when the order arrived, there were two thick, stiff slices of bread on a plate, with butter in a small bowl on the side! Needless to say, there is no kids menu, and there is very little that small children would like (other than dal-chawal). If you order a Coke, they will charge you GST on the MRP (which is illegal), hike up the price, and make you pay cash for it. The hotel does not allow you to sign room service bills, so you have to pay cash every time you order anything, whether it is a cup of tea or a whole meal - so be prepared to carry a lot of cash. Apparently, the hotel does not allow guests to pay their room service bill at the time of checkout. There is no wifi Internet in the rooms, and our room didn't have data coverage either, so checking emails/whatsapp was out of the question. We were told that wifi was available in the dining room and when I went there on 31.12.2019 at around 5 p.m. and started putting my laptop down at a table, a waiter came over and told me not to sit there because he had to spread flowers on the tables for New Year's Eve. The demeanour and attitude of the waiters was lackadaisical and arrogant most of the time, and even downright surly on a few occasions. It is the sort of place where although dinner is supposed to be served till 10.30. p.m., a waiter will tell you at 9.45 p.m. to place your last order for rotis because they are closing the tandoor. It is the sort of place where if you order dal-chawal in your room, they will send you a bowl of dal, forget the rice, and bill you for both. The "
"This place is spread across 40acres or so, and have several types of accommodations to choose from. They charge like 5-star properties but are not even 3-star. Pros: Easy access to beach Cons: Smelly age old furnishing and is of no use. Big spiders, worms, lizards, mosquitoes....its all there in the rooms, literally you can't sit in the room to relax. Our bag torn/bitten by rats looking for eatables while we were out for dinner(which was below avg) Most ridiculous is the "eco" walls made of bamboo sticks, you wont even know if someone is peeking through the opening. There is a lot more but then it will look like i m ranting...please just don't fall for the nice pictures on web, the property is way different. Spend your money on something else."

"We booked this hotel because our original hotel failed us at the last moment and these guys had availability even on long weekend. However, they made the best use of this opportunity and charged us ***y times of their regular pricing. The rooms are not clean and there are hardly any facilities. The only saving grace is it’s location on the MG road and proximity to the Promenade (beach)"
"Arrived at 6pm 24 décember, happy tout found one place..but they sell me a easy room with a dirty bathroom,no towel, the TV doesn't walk. For 2000 roupies. When i said its not correct, they just laugh.these people are not Indian, not hindou, they are juste stealer.one day you pays for these."
"Guys, staying at this hotel was one very worst experience. Lock of rooms are broke. water supply is very poor. after 10 pm no one is there to give room service. Please guys don't ever try to think to select this hotel, not even in bad condition."

"I just got back from the FITNESS VACATION (FITREAT) at the K resort and the experience has been still lingering. It matched beyond my expectations. Jeevan and Swapna are the young owners of the resort and was so warm and courteous from the time to stepping in to stepping out. Within a few mins we felt we are already family and at a comfort zone. The food was curated as per perfection. The staff also was so helpful at all times. I enjoyed each and every moment there. Loved the surroundings, the vibe, the way the entire 4 days was planned and the lovely recommendations by Jeevan and Swapna. They have been so pro active for everything with instant and perfect response. Loved the rooms, the food, the banquet hall and the entire resort. Totally recommend everyone to take their experience at K resort for the stunning views, spread out scenic location and the overall experience. Will definitely come back soon for more :)"
"The resort is a beautiful, well spread out property that gives you a chance to get away from all the noise in the city yet, ..is just about 15 min away from the "French Town". The rooms are well spread out giving you ample privacy, if that's what you are looking for. The place is pet friendly, and the layout let's your pets be... Themselves. The pool is clean, big and wouldn't give the feeling of being crowded. The staff and ***agement are courteous and very accommodating and the food delicious. The lake is just the perfect place to wind down after a busy day in French Town, if you choose to wander out. The tennis court and mini golf just add to the ***y options to have a quality time. All in all, it's a must visit place, and I for one, would suggest it 💯 to anyone looking for a place to relax with friends and family alike. "
"The interiors and dining area are clean and well maintained. Rooms and bathrooms are large and convenient. The environment is pleasant and the resort is located in an wide open and unpolluted area. There is a well maintained and reasonably large swimming pool. There is also a tennis court and a mini golf area - which is fun. The food selection was somewhat limited and also expensive. You can count around Rs. 1200 for two per meal. However the quality of the food was very good. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. Note that this is not a beach front property. The beach close-by is more of a fishing area. The closest recommended beach is a car drive away. The surroundings at the property are mostly a collection of mossy ponds with overgrown gardens and stony pathways. We visited a couple of other well known resorts in the area. All in all, compared to any other place near Pondicherry, this is among the best or perhaps the best you could do."

23 Goubert Avenue Pondicherry - 605 001, Pondicherry, Puducherry, India
" My wife and I visited Pondicherry for 3 days and what an awesome holiday we had . The White Town which depicts the French influence is very inviting. We stayed at The Promenade and it was the best decision we could have made . The ever smiling Front Desk staff Ms.Sunita to the team ***aging the Restaurant Ms.Susmita- all of them are so welcoming and always at hand to help and guide you . We thank from the bottom of our hearts for making our stay such a memorable one . The Promenade has a magnificent view of the ocean and With the delectable dishes that they serve - the stay becomes unforgettable. Will surely go back again"
"Visited this beautiful property with my friends. It is right opposite the beach so it makes it very ro***tic. The vibes are very chill and they have the most amazing sundowners. Bay of Buddha serves the yummiest Asian food and it is roof top overlooking the beach. Definitely visiting again."
"We stayed in the promenade hotel for four nights .It is one of the best property in puducherry especially its location whis is bang on the promenade beach and closely located to the french quarters. Sea facing room was just fantastic and it was great watching sea lying in the bed. Their breakfast was very good and healthy. The staff is polite and well ***nered. Kudos to the ***agement. "

No.22, Prabu Avenue, Kannaiah Nagar, ECR, Bommayapalayam village, Periyamudaliyar Chavadi, Tamil Nadu, India
"Its a beautiful hotel located very close to Auroville. There is also a beach with in 500mts of the hotel. Looks like its a new property. All the furniture is new and very sophisticated. Bathroom was neat and all accessories were of good quality. Breakfast is served in the room. Place is quiet and the staff is polite & friendly. They have a nice pool too."
"I feel the hotels in White Town are overpriced and if one wants to experience beaches then Auroville Beach and near by areas are a far better choice. Le Holiday has a beach at walkable distance. The breakfast is tasty however limited and the staff reminds you everytime you ask for an extra Roti or idli. No eatables allowed near the pool... This is where you miss Goa... Hospitality doesn't come with imposing buildings and infrastructure, it comes with an attitude to serve. This is badly required in the East Coast. Rooms are compact but we'll appointed. Suitable for couple without kids. "
"New, Clean and Pretty good for short stay. Has decent pool inside the facility. Staffs are very courteous and good service. The location is very good city accessibility is not too far, pretty near to Auroville Beach."

"I will recommend this great resort for a short or long break. There is a 6 am to 6 pm beach access. The rooms are great but could be better without the few mosquitoes that are constantly in residence. I do not know how they get in! The food is truly amazing... the breakfast spread is HUGE!!!!! The pool is great and there is a long walking path available. Buggies are available for those who find the walk from the front office to the rooms, difficult. Cycles are also available. Service is great. All outdoor games are available ."
"Excellent beach resort, easy access to the beach, we stayed in room which had private swimming pool. Rooms are clean & well decorated, beds are good however there are separate two beds which is not comfortable. Resort has good swimming pool & you can take bath after coming back from beach. Resort has ***y sports like cycling, cricket indoor games etc. break fast need improvement not much attractive very basic."
"We had stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. It is very nice property with private beach.beach is just at the backyard. It's very clean beach. The property has very good swimming pool ( total 3 pool in the property). They have indoor games like cricket, tennis court etc.. food at resturant also decent enough.overall a happy stay."

Kalapet Beach, Pondicherry, Puducherry, India
"The setup is spread across huge area and lush greenery all across. It's very good if you are going as group or family with kids. I stayed in tent house. Rooms are just ok. Its a sea view hotel, not a beach view. It's dangerous to go inside the beach as it's too sloppy. But it's kind of private beach and you can have your privacy and calm if you want to sit and enjoy the sea and waves. Restaurant is bit costly. But the food is very tasty. Complimentary breakfast is awesome. The place is located bit far from the pondicherry city."
"Visited Pondicherry in March 2019. Had a very relaxed and comfortable stay for 2 Nights. Well maintained resort. Almost a private beach with little or no access to outsiders. Reasonably good and tasty food (We consumed vegetarian only). Decent service and courteous staff. Swimming pool is small but suffices if the crowd is less. Highlight of the resort is the huge lawn and the two hammocks facing the beach. Overall, this resort is worth coming back!"
"Such a beautiful property but zero hospitality.Front office people are good. But their staff needs serious training. Housekeeping is very poor. I don’t really write negative reviews but this resort is no where close hospitality. Food the good but it takes ages to deliver. This resort is not at all maintained for the price what they charge. Good place for kids to enjoy. Beach is not maintained well. Extremely dirty and broken glass bottles everywhere unsafe to walking barefoot. We took this resort thinking they have a private beach but we just used once because of safety. Dirty towels, rooms are not maintained well. Not at worth the price. Nothing great about it unless they learn some hospitality. "

"First of all we booked in the Peak Season with High fare, which was totally not worth for that. Cleanliness is somehow OK. But most of the amnesties are not up to the mark. Food served in afternoon was good in taste where as food served in room for dinner was pathetic. It's little away from city Center ( You must have private vehicle)."
"Nice location, but dirty beach , deep and dangerous , swimming is not advisable. so without beach , resort is average. staff are good ,hotel rooms are big and average. food is ok. We stayed third week of Sept 2019. we took 3 rooms.Maintenance of hotel and toilets are very average . Good service by Staff R Murugan."
"Food quality- 4/5 Food variety- 3/5 Cleanliness - 2.5/5 Staff - 4/5 location- 4/5 hotel upkeep is not that great. Rooms are spacious. Pools are working. Staff does not speak English or hindi only tamil. Good for short stays."
