Located Off Pondicherry- But the Location gets 5 stars despite the approach route to the property being bad. Front office experience was not 5star like, you will find confused attendants, my case they took my mobile inside to the managers room to confirm my booking, there is a booking ID for a reason. Even if you pre-book they would scramble to find what to allot and is the room ready yet calls here and there! Property is Excellent, booked a Sea View and Lake View- Definitely the Sea view was better. In fact the Suites must be thies USP they seem superb There is no buggy service for guests going around the property, its only for Baggages, they might provide for challenged guests i guess. Food was between ok to great, the complimentary B/fast was excellent. Prices were high, but within expected range. Liquor is cheaper than most places, and Bar is fine, good variety too. The best part is their Swimming pool and their architecture. Very nicely designed spaces and good land scaping. The Pool is the best by far my exp in and around Chennai Hotels,.. The water is clean and warm. The Bar service by the pool was great. Now, Le Pondy Beach and Lake Resort misses on few areas Professional handling of Guests and soft skills esp front office They are definitely doing their best and beating a whole lot of other competition, but they must compete with big guys .. Somewhere something is left wanting in the guest handling side. The rates of room/night are varying between few couple of thousands to few couple of 10 thousands depending on when and how u book, be aware u may have absolute VFM or at times be looted. Must try place, good for couples and family.
Starting with the parking - they have separate parking which is outside the resort and it's very near. You have to park your vehicle there and security is there always at the parking..Then you may need to walk quite a distance to the reception you can see lake view resorts to your right.You have 3 sets of rooms available lake view room, sea view room, and pool villa.You have got a restaurant, private beach, ayurvedic spa, indoor games, outdoor games for kids, swimming pool, shops (dress, ornaments and other accessories) available.Beach Timings - 6am to 6pmBreakfast timings - 7am to 10amLunch timings - 12pm to 3pmDinner timings - 7pm to 10pmQuite costly - dinner for three people we paid around 3.8k.Dinner was a buffet - includes both veg and nonveg.Breakfast is complimentary including both veg and nonveg.But the ambiance is good.The room service was also quite good.24*7 is the room service.The room is quite big.It was so clean.You have got a coffee maker, sewing kits, dental kit, shaving kit, slippers, laundry bag, body lotion, shower gel, shower caps, Comb.Along with that, you have got a locker as well.We went there for mom's birthday and celebrated it.Called reception and ordered a cake. The cake was complimentary from their side.Around 5 went to the beach and enjoyed it a lot.Overall a pleasant stay.
We stayed there for 2 nights and never stepped out of the resort during the 48 hours stay. partly due to being lazy and party due to getting almost everything there including the beach. The beach is secluded and almost private with hardly anyone apart from resort guest. There is life guard always watching over. The resort is old styled with lot of privacy in-built in the design itself. The rooms were large and clean. There is nice sitting area outside room for an evening tea or coffee. The staff is extremely courteous. The food was very good, if not great. The pool is actually very nice and serves multiple purpose being adjacent to restaurant. For those who know swimming, its a good fun. Though the room says " sea view" or lake view, it matters if your room is at the ground or the first floor. Hence please check with the resort about this before checking in. I could see guests of all ages having a good time in resort due to various things to spend time around. One suggestion to the resort will be to improve upon the indoor games and gym. The condition there did not match the other facilities and hence it was hardly used. The gym instruments need to be checked for proper working. Same goes for the games like TT as well. Overall I will recommend staying here for a nice break .
This is a truly amazing place to spend your vacation with, especially if you are traveling with kids; it made our Pondy trip very memorable. The resort is located about 10-12 km away from the main town, so I would suggest spending a day at a more centrally located place to look around the main tourist attractions and do whatever shopping that has been planned. We had a lake-facing cottage at Le Pondy which had a veranda with a spacious cot and an easy chair and table, a spacious bedroom, a pebble-lined courtyard kind of a seating area to spend a quiet evening in, a closet area and a nice bathroom. The restaurant and in-room dining facilities were fantastic, with pretty reasonable prices, which was a relief, given that the resort is away from the main town. Complimentary breakfast had a fantastic spread with good variation on both the days that we spent there. Wifi speed was really good. The staff is very friendly and they even provided my son with a frisbee and football to play with in the evening. The swimming pool was good, but the perk of our stay was the easy access to the beach with a life guard who kept watch. Would definitely visit again!
I stayed in Le Pondy with my wife and 1 year old kid. It is an awesome resort with clean and secure private beach. The resort is clean and well maintained. So are the cottages. The staff are friendly and always willing to help. Value for money. Pro: 1. Great location 2. Clean and secure environment. 3. Staffs are very friendly. 4. Food tastes good. 5. Good sea breeze. 6. Clean and well designed cottages. 7. Good swimming pool. 8. Quick and easy checkin and checkout process. 9. Free Wifi 10. 24hr room service. 11. Clean bathroom 12. Good children play area. 13. Neat restaurant 14. Kids friendly restaurant and staff (they gave good food specially made for my 1yr old kid which is not in the menu even without us asking for it) cons: There are two negligible inconveniences. 1. You have to park your vehicle outside the resort. Though they have security post for the parking area, it is not a covered parking. 2. It is located little outside the city and having your own vehicle is better for easy access to tourist attractions. I would recommend this for leisure trip for family and honeymoon couples.
Decent place. Enjoyed the stay, Will come back. Cant call it premium. But quite good considering peaceful (far off) location, private beach (can be cleaner), manicured lawns (good), swimming pool (great), rooms (spacious, clean - linens and towels could have been better (rough and deconditioned))... Food judging by breakfast, should be good. Not so much variety but good typical spread... the dosa counter chap felt he was doing a favour when I approached for some more....and tried making 3 omelettes from one egg ... maybe he did not like my face (laugh) ...he should get a prize for that. Covered Car Parking lot was outside hotel, large enough for about 50 odd cars... around 300 mtrs away from rooms, Air conditioner in our room was fantastic... Toiletries were not available in the bathroom, not sure if they would have provided if asked for, but should have been kept by default I felt. Customer service can be better, the personal touch and welcome was lacking - willingness to please was too low (IMO). Thanks to the in-charge for accommodating the extra kids (at a price of course). Overall, good place to stay.
To celebrate the 50th birthday of our son, we chose this resort. Our family of 6 members checked into 3 classic rooms. The rooms are spacious with all amenities, clean linen and well maintained. We had requested for a poolside dinner , the request agreed graciously by the staff. The food was delicious and the staff so very courteous and attentive. The grounds are expansive, green , dotted with ponds and palms.and clean. The family enjoyed swimming in the pool.There is a private beach beyond the back compound. The beach is open from 6am to 6 pm, and very clean. Sword of caution: the currents are quite strong at times and do not venture deep if you are not a good swimmer. There is also a games centre with board games.The complementary breakfast had many items, both Indian and continental.On the whole we enjoyed our stay there and recommend it to those who wish for a peaceful and enjoyable stay at Pondi.

Took a long time to stay at this place since I first heard about it. I am glad it happened finally. Plush rooms, great ambience in the entire resort, the private beach is a big plus, considering the current Covid situations. Well maintained swimming pool, though some of the guests tried to dirty the pool by washing their slippers in it, the staff was quick to stop them from doing so. special mention to the chefs who customized our ala carte orders per our requirements. Bathroom could be maintained better. There was a water leakage which kept flowing down from the washbasin. Lake view or Sea view doesn't make much of a difference except the size of the rooms. They are on the expensive side, but I felt the experience was worth it. Swimming pool, private beach, food, friendly waiters and staff. My kids aged 2.5 and 5 enjoyed the place the most.
This is the best beach resort in Pondy. The beach is just awesome with white sands and very clean. I would consider this a best choice than spending a lot of money in the 5 star properties in Mahabalipuram. The resort is built in Kerala Style with high ceilings which keeps the place very cool even when the weather is hot. The basic rooms have a good view of Lake and some does have the view of sea. If you have extra money , would suggest the pool villa which looks really magnificent. The Alacarte was mostly reasonably priced. The restaurant overlooks the pool and sea offering you a nice view. The staffs at the restaurant do a really awesome service, though this lacks with other staffs like those in Swimming pool or front desk. Decent wifi connectivity to attend some work if needed. Overall a nice place to sit back and relax.
it's a nice property located close to private beach. Rooms, breakfast and facilities were good if it's rated as 2 or 3 star property, if you rate it as 4 star then it's nowhere near to it. prices for room charge is very high for the quality of Le Pondy Beach and Lake Resort. buffet dinner spread is less for the price charged. water was leaking from the AC and it spoiled our phones, watches and bags. After complaining they repaired it wasting our time. swimming pool is good but they use lot of chlorine and they have only 4 tubes and my kid didn't get as it was used by others. I request Le Pondy Beach and Lake Resort to upgrade the quality to 4 or 5 star for the high charges quoted. Beach is very close to hotel with safety guard which is an advantage. As beach is clean it makes you to forget other issues of hotel.
We (3 friends) visited Pondicherry and stayed at Le Pondy Resort. The resort is located just on the sea shore and have its own private beach. The private beach is very clean with round the clock security. We got the lake view room as the sea view rooms were all booked. The lake view room was on the first floor and the lake view was not very clear due to abundant trees in front of the rooms. Rooms were big enough to accommodate three adults. Bathroom was clean and spacious. Swimming pool was clean and don't forget to carry your swimming essentials. The sit out are just in front of the room was great to enjoy the pleasant morning and evenings. The food was just OK and the price was on a little higher side. Overall a very good resort in Pondicherry to relax and enjoy the beach.
We stayed at Lake view room 139 at Le Pondy for a day/night and it was indeed a wonderful stay. Pros: Affordable rates for a premium beach resort. Our room had a separate sit-out facing garden and lake. Amazing food, even the complimentary breakfast in the morning have a very wide variety. Private beach, which is clean and guarded, we felt safe for a morning bath at the beach. Swimming pool with kids pool and staff adjacent to restaurant and garden. Staff appears to be well trained and helpful. Altogether we had a wonderful stay and we will definitely recommend it to friends. Cons: A bit isolated from the Pondicherry center, but it has its own merits being away from the city rush.
Me and my wife were here in August 2018. Beautiful place to stay. Right on the beach and with great views and great premises. Food is good but much expensive as compared to Pondicherry. However, Le Pondy Beach and Lake Resort is 10 km away from main city so that might be the reason why. Service is prompt and staff is polite. We had booked a lake view room but we were upgraded to a pool villa which was a pleasant surprise. The pool villa was simply awesome. One low point was that the open to air bathroom had mosquitoes. But mosquito repellent was sprayed immediately after we complained and things were better after that. Overall a great place to stay.
A superb resort where we can relax and spent a great time!!.. Stayed in a LakeView Room and eventhough the view of the lake was not that great from the room, as the Lake is quite far away, the garden view was excellent.. Rooms were very neat and the room service and Le Pondy Beach and Lake Resort service was just excellent.. Room was equipped with a Sony Bravia Led Television!!.. Food was of high quality and very tasty.. The buffet breakfast and lunch was really good and had a good collection of food items.. I will definitely comeback to LePondy.. Highly recommend, if you want to relax during a weekend!!.. It was a fabulous stay!!..
Awesome place for your a peaceful trip.. view points, amenities, eye catching greenery. In between all these even there is one odd.....hotel service, not a single person have smile in there face from welcome to checkout, looks like they are not believing in warm welcome & memorable good byes... there is a lack of courtesy in most hotel staff.....Except only one Chef Manoj Sinha who came to us ask about the food & have chat with us with generous smiling face. At last but not least vale took money about 100 buck from my car pocket without asking me, may be its paid vale ;-)
Overall experience at Le Pondy was fabulous. The property, hospitality and the food was awesome. We booked 2 lake facing rooms which were absolutely the same as depicted online. The rooms were clean and the service was prompt. Beach was absolutely approachable too. We really enjoyed our stay at the resort and will definitely recommend this property to everyone who is visiting pudducherry to unwind with the best services. Special thanks to the F&B manager who made sure that we got our Chhole Bhature for the breakfast on the last day of our stay!! 😊
The resort is fantastic with amazingingly clean beach..the pool is also well kept. The food is delicious & is very economically priced though more options should be added in north indian cuisines. They dont charge if we mention that we need milk for kids or we need food for kids which is really flattering. Rooms are well eqquiped though housekeeping needs to be taken care of as they did not place ample bath and hand towels in room and everytime we had to ask for it. Also they do serve food in room but dont have a menu card in room which is strange.
This resort has rooms spread over large area. Rooms are quite large and each room has separate open sitting area, I really liked it. Staff is courteous and helpful. They have there own private beach, have cordoned off area of Paradise Beach for there customers. The room service is quick and food is prepared as per your instructions. However, this place is little far from main city but totally worth it. I would say trust Google Maps for navigation. Housekeeping needs improvement. In my room, they forgot to keep the bathing & hand towels.
Best resort in Pondicherry we stay 1 night here staff was so helpful specially mr abhishek he provide best villa to us . La Pondy give us before check in as we reach at morning 8 am but they provide villa before 2 pm as it was check in time. Best part is that they care for their customers . Overall beach was fantastic as it was property of these resort they have private personal beach. Food quality was awesome . We are new customer on go ibibo but orsom services & cheap rates provided by goibibo . Thanks for making our tour memorable
The resort is on city outskirts due to which there is no or limited cab facility for Ola hence a notable point for someone who wants to explore the city. The resort has a private beach which is well maintained and worth enjoying. The staff is cordial and the rooms are well kept. there are limited amenities within the resort like play room etc. and there aren’t any restaurants nearby to the resort but food served at Le Pondy Beach and Lake Resort is good hence it made up for lack of other eateries nearby.
