          A Good clean place for stay. But no beach near by”

          If you are okay to travel 10km to Pondicherry from the place you stay, then this place is for you. The stay is amazing and the staffs are very helpful. The food might be slightly high priced. It is not exactly in Pondicherry, it is near to the Pondicherry - Tindivanam Highway and Auroville. So if you expect a beach nearby it's approx 10kms away from your stay.

          We would love to check in once again when we visit Pondy, scenic view at all spots in resort and well maintained ambience. Temperature controlled pool worth it. Only 15-20 mins journey to beach in 4 wheeler
