Guest Reviews

“OMG! The most incredible stay i’ve had in South India so far! The Place is a living slow-motion movie of Pondicherry under the French in the 1700s! The whole experience is like a frozen time machine experience. The History, the Hospitality, the Food and the Staff were just too good to be true. This place definitley needs to call itself a museum for all the History, Heritage and Atmosphere they have! An experience not to be missed!”
