Pros:1. This resort is located right at the auroville beach. You can sit at the their rooftop restaurant or stand at your balcony and enjoy the view. 2. Food is decent.3. Staffs are friendly.4. Room was spacious. To be honest the rooms and washrooms were better than the posted pictures. 5. Reasonably priced which includes complementary breakfast.6. Rock beach is 15 mins from this place.7. Saw few staffs which were specially abled, and the way the receptionist was explaining them the work was really nice. They were patient and sweet. Havent seen a lot of places which actually gives employment to specially abled people.8. Receptionist were really helpful and gave good suggestions of the nearby places to visit.Cons:1. Although its just 2 mins from the main road, the lanes to reach Lamel Cove Beach Resort are very narrow, so driving becomes a challenge.2. As it is in Tamil Nadu and not in Pondicherry, alcohol is not available in the resort or even nearby. If police catches you bringing alcohol, you will be fined 4000. So, if you want to sit and relax and see the view you can do at the resort, but if you want to party, you have to go to Rock beach to find all the party places.3. I visited Auroville beach in the evening and it was filled with indecent crowds. I dont know if Pondicherry is in general very conservative or the people I saw in Auroville beach were ill mannered. In evening there was no other girl in the beach other than me and the way the guys were behaving there was very indecent. Even though my resort was right at the beach, after looking at the people present there, I decided to leave the beach within 5 mins . I saw a lot of people both male and female enjoying the beach in morning though and from the resort it looked like they were having fun time. So, not sure if I was just being unlucky with my timing or me wearing a dress to a beach was a problem. (Crowd at rock beach and Paradise beach were very decent)Overall I loved the resort. Services provided by resort were nice. All the cons mentioned in this review are because of the government rules or outside factors and not in hands of resort people. Its a perfect place to relax.
it was a beautiful experience.. the check in is at 10am , check out at 10 am as well.. two people in a room, u can ask for an extra bed which would cost u inr.1000 plus tax..breakfast is complimentary.. 8am to 10.30am.. room service is available.. u are allowed to bring food and alcohol from outside but they will not provide cutlery for them,however if u order room service u will get the necessary cutlery..u are given 1L water as complimentary per day, if u order more it will be charged.. we got a sea view room...the rooms are super clean.. lovely breeze.. the sound of the waves were so calming.. it was wonderfully relaxing... the resort is literally on the beach.. there are stairs leading to the beach..its open 6am to 6pm.. we got up early to watch the sunrise and also the sunset..it was an ethereal experience.. there are ocean view rooms which gives u a more direct and wonderful view of the beach.. v guys plan to book it on our next trip.. all in all it was a very pleasant and relaxing experience.. loved it.. u wont regret choosing this resort..of that I'm doubly sure.. one more thing i want to appreciate the place is that they employ differently abled personnel with hearing and speech impairments.. I'm proud of what they are doing.. the ocean view,access to the beach, clean rooms, tidy premises, room service food was nice, pleasant and accommodating staff...
Pros: Stayed in Deluxe Superior Sea View room: 1. Rooms are very much spacious and clean. 2. Clean washroom with private sea view balcony. But we can't see the full view of sea from Deluxe rooms. Go for Oceanic rooms to view the full sea. 3. Maintenance was good. 4. Inside they have restaurant but price is bit costly; eventhough it's costly don't miss it, because it's a rooftop restaurant with full sea view. 5. We can order outside foods from Swiggy or zomato but hotel doesn't provide cutlery and spoons. 6. Shops are there in walkable distance. 7. Separate gate is there to enter beach. Beach timing is from 6am to 6pm. 8. Kids play area is there. Cons: 1. Way to hotel from ECR is a small road with drainage water. Not that much clean. 2. Seashore is not that much clean but okay. Atleast they can clean infront of Lamel Cove Beach Resort to sit. 3. They can provide RO water with little bit tastier. Because1 litre mineral water will not be enough for a day. 4. Car parking is bit small it can accommodate 6 to 7 cars only. Overall it's a good stay with Lamel Cove Beach Resort and enjoyed.
Good and safe hotel. Very well maintained. Courteous and helpful staff. Good for families and also women who travel alone. Getting to the place is through a small road but it is easily accessible. Parking is not an issue. Staff help by arranging two wheeler and autos to help the guests travel if requested. Breakfast is like a typical homemade South Indian fare but also has rotis and continental choices as well. Room service is good. Vegetarians will have difficulty ordering food as choice is limited. Sea food and non veg has more choices. Nice place to enjoy quality time and hard earned money. We will definitely be back for another stay. Makes you feel very safe. the reception area itself has a tv screen where the CCTV footage is monitored and guests can also see it. Kitchen can also be seen . So everything is monitored. There are women staff in the reception especially in the evening. We will definitely recommend.
One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in my life. Right from check in to check out, the 2 days spent in Lamel cove resort were absolutely soothing and relaxing! The location 15-20 min away from white town. the resort is equidistant from Auroville and Pondicherry. Auroville is 10 min. - The staff was very cooperative and provided all the necessary support. - Excellent Rooms, very spacious that can easily accommodate 3 people (We had a deluxe room). The design and concept of the rooms very pretty nice - Well maintained, clean, neat, spacious bathrooms with hot/cold water facility. - Food available which was also excellent. Kerala Chicken curry and parota was the best combination. Food was room served and well packed. the rates are decent. Overall my family enjoyed the stay and Lamel cove and we will certainly recommend Lamel Cove Beach Resort to others. Everything about Lamel Cove Beach Resort is excellent
Location: Back gate of the resort opens at Auro Beach. Also, it's just 5 mins away from main road. Rooms: Clean Room n Bathroom with Nice Blue n White color combination n Go for Oceanic view rooms specially on 1st floor( U can see the Sea directly from the room) n if you get Room No. 506 than you will get 2 views of Sea from room. Also, the sound of waves is really mesmerizing from the rooms. Food: Breakfast is Good with south Indian dishes n boil eggs. Other food items are also very tasty. Service: From Receptionist to Room Service to Bell Boy to Guards to Chef all are very polite n treats the guest very well. Extra: Go for BBQ which is a best experience to have bbq in front of Sea. Also, Chef Bubhinath personally came n we had BBQ Chicken n Honey Garlic Chicken for BBQ n both were too delicious. also, there is option of candle light dinner that too in from of Sea. Overall Best place to stay.
We stayed at this resort for two nights. It was a wonderful experience. The rooms were clean and maintained well. The staff were friendly and helpful. The super hit feature is the beach at the back of the resort. You can enter the beach through the back gate of the resort. The complementary buffet breakfast was good. Also there is a sea facing rooftop restaurant which serves good tasty food both veg and non-veg. It was a great stay. I would book again without any second thought. One improvement aspect is the parking area. They have capacity to park 6 cars but you have take out one car if the other car parked in front of you have to leave. They have a resident driver who can manage that but if some quests forget to leave the key, it becomes a problem. You may have to wait for other Guest to come. If there are more cars they arrange for parking in a nearby private property.
the resort is next to auroville beach, the location is perfect for those who are looking for a beach side location, can't be closer than this, beautiful view of the bay of Bengal from their roof top restaurant... we had a ocean view room , sound of the waves was audible from the room itself, scenic sun rise, takes more than words to explain food prepared in their restaurant was very tasty, although complimentary breakfast needs some more options to choose from services were awesome, very friendly and helpful staff ..they will try to arrange everything that you need!! the only cons with this resort is that it is about 5 km away from whitetown , you can get a two wheeler arranged from the resort itslef but if you like to spend time on beach , this is the resort to be !!! we enjoyed our stay here!!
It was great stay at Lamel Cove... Resort is just next to Auroville beach... As everyone got Room with balcony (Sea horse building) and Sea view from balcony was amazing, once can see in the pics.... Not all rooms are sea facing, only ocenic blue and sea horse building are sea facing, please ask for ur preference ( subject to availability).... Complementary BF is just OK not much appreciated... This resort is 6.5km away from the city, so unless you have ur own vehicle it would be difficult to depend on local commutation... Staff are polite and help you with ur concerns... Thanks to the lady receptionist who considered our preference and gave us sea facing deluxe room with balcony.... Lamel Cove team u guys have done a grt job and thanks making our stay pleasant...
one of the best. I expected a good one but this was amazing. I had booked a sea view deluxe room and it was worth it. really amazing. staff was very courteous. we did not order food inside. but they gave a welcome drink when we.m checked in. also the breakfast was really tasty. Best to stay and spend time. one advise though, rent a bike before checking in because the main shopping place like mg road is 7km away. there is an amazing cafe near to this place called Cafe xtasy. nice place to order or sit and eat. overall excellent. lovely stay. if planning to stay near Auroville beach, this is the place. couple friendly hotel. local id card accepted. staff were very helpful. the check in process was simple and smooth. overall loved the experience!!!
Awesome! Amazing! wonderful! Super duper stay!!!!! Loving every single minute here...The most cheapest an economic experience which u wouldn't get in any 5star hotels or resorts... Their food was too good and room service is excellent. what else you want on a vacation.Beach is very close by and private...I wouldn't take a chance staying anywhere nextime other than Lamel Cove!!! Very Family Friendly place..staffs are good and polite...They also have swiggy or Zomato options for food.and u can order from any restaurants from pondy. Overall it's a dream came true vacation and peaceful.. Booking side sea view room 406 and full sea view is worth every second you stay here...Thank you Lamel Cove..
Resort is perfectly located next to beach. Room was clean . Food was ok. Service is very good. They are always there to help . Waking up to the sunrise just beyond your room was an ultimate experience. Sea view is breath taking. Some of the cons are below: 1) neighbouring bar creates lot of mess around the beach. 2) some drunkuds are always there but the resort makes sure someone is looking after the guests at beach. 3) complimentary dinner is limited . Even if we are ready to pay there are no options. 4) car parking area is limited. First come first serve basis. So sometimes we had to park it a little further away . My kids had a wonderful time . Main market and ashram is also nearby .
The resort is in a great location just close to Auroville Beach. The room was so neat and clean. The ambience and greenery in the resort added beauty to it. The backside of the resort takes you to the Auroville beach. The room service was so prompt and great. The resort served us complimentary dinner and breakfast during our stay. Very friendly staff. There's also a little play area for the kids. Overall a great experience and pleasant stay. Will prefer to stay in this resort anytime we visit Pondicherry. Thanks a lot Team! Room service, location and 2 mins away from beach are the added advantage of staying in this resort......
The location infront of the sea is really superb.. The only thing they can improve is the service for extra water which they provide you just a liter per day and additional water is self service as not provided as room service. Also, the variety in bfast should be improved which is only inclined to South Indian. The location infront of the sea is really superb..

Nice place to have a pleasant stay. Good Maintenance, good service, good atmosphere. Nice place to stay calm. Location is 7km away from heart of Pondy that's the negative thing. Every time we need to travel for tour visit from resort. Parking is bad. Very congested place for parking. We should take extra care while keeping our vehicles in parking and taking out from parking, else will meet with damage.only 6 cars can be parked. Other services are very much good. Can have delicious food in normal price. Will recommend to my friends.
Note: Genuine review! During my stay we enjoyed each and every moment. Their service is best and most honest people. Ambience, garden, room whatever every part of resort/hotel are damn good. Maybe the owner of resort is very much particular at every aspect. even in minute things are giving beauty to resort. Beach view from Open top restaurant and garden area are awesome . every room of resort has private area to sit & relax(i didn't even see in any hotel). Note: I am not exaggerating. If you book and visit sure you will like it
Excellent stay, our room on the mermaid tower is very spacious and is located on the sea. The view from the balcony is mesmerizing. The food and service is also great. Only suggestion is to provide a portable fan on the balcony so that guests can enjoy the view for longer duration even when there is no wind and lot of humidity like in our case. Overall, great experience and would highly recommend. Sleeping amid the sound of waves even inside the room throughout the night is very therapeutic and peaceful.
The resort is having a nice location. It's right infront of the beach and from the balcony you can see the beach. Its a fantastic experience. I have booked oceanic premium sea view room. It's having the best view in Lamel Cove Beach Resort. Nice thing the resort having it's own entrance to beach which will feel somekind of private beach. Room service and food is good in here. Breakfast is having many items and it's worth having. All over I had a very nice experience and will recomend this resort to everyone.
Nice location where you can enjoy the view of ocean. Rooms are spacious, clean, well maintained with neat restrooms. we stayed in oceanic premium sea view room which has good sea view. you can sit and listen to the sound of waves which relax your mind. People working in this resort are very friendly and ready to help you always. They have decent food menu list of both south and north Indian style which tastes good with reasonable price. parking is limited. overall it's a nice weekend spot.
Overall a good experience. Food was very good and the rates were nominal. But I feel they could have more dishes included in the menu. Stay was good but only few rooms are beach facing and others are garden facing. Also, there is no place or sitting arrangements, which is open to the sea view. Overall good experience. Rooms are spacious with lots of storage available. Hospitality is very nice and staff is very courteous. Overall it's neat and clean property and feels good to visit.
