        Awesome location, everything in house. Had a wonderful experience. Only drawback is you can't dry your wet beach wear as the balcony door doesn't open but you can always give it for laundry. We would love to come back.

        Receptionists, chefs, managers, housekeepers and everyone were friendly. Special thanks to Asin and chefs for helping us with child’s food. Very good location. Improvement points: Wooden floor could be repaired. Seats near pool were dusty and to be cleaned.

        Lovely Property ”

        Lovely property right on the beach. Most things to see are nearby. Had food at The Blue Nile and Bay by the Buddha, the food was excellent so was the ambience. The breakfast options were fabulous. The staff was very courteous and welcoming. There is a small gift shop Le Pondicherry which has nice gift options to pick up last minute gifts. All in all a great experience.

        Recommended for location and nice room”

        The hotel is basically on the water, and hence also walking distance to most sights in Pondicherry. Room clean and well appointed for a hotel like feel (though a safe would be nice). Breakfast is also god if not gourmet. Reception and buffet staff were very courteous and accommodating. But their service at breakfast can be slow, and their staff at rooftop bar were rather clueless and difficult -- they themselves did not know they had happy hour (advertised in big letters at front desk, as sunset experience) and refused to budge.

        Stay @ Hotel Promenade, Pondicherry ”

        We stayed @ Hotel Promenade between 3rd to 5th Jun’ 22. We got ourselves upgraded to sea view suite, on additional payment, which was worth every penny. The suite was superb and one can view the sea, literally, from the bed. The sitting area was spacious and comfortable with excellent view of the beach/sea. The breakfast spread was amazing as also the a la carte items we tried for dinner. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful - felt pampered at times. Would strongly recommend for stay @ Pondicherry.
