GREAT FOR

    Those looking for beautiful alternative spaces, creative rejuvenation or artistic inspiration or even just totally undisturbed relaxation. You will love this place if there’s a creator that resides within you.

What we love

  • Each of the 50 villas is uniquely designed and created by various artists, designers and architects from the world over. There’s something for everyone. From naturally-cooled bamboo thatched cottages to luxurious suites with private pools.
  • There are bicycles outside every cottage should you wish to move around within the resort or ride down to the French Quarters within Pondicherry.
  • We absolutely loved the beautifully designed swimming pool with beach chairs that lead up to the untouched sands of the Bay of Bengal.
  • The location of the seafood cafe is fabulous. You can enjoy fresh seafood while listening to the crashing of the waves.
  • The resort isn’t just beautiful from the outside, but also from the inside – it goes out of its way to support and build a local community and is extremely sensitive towards the environment.
