GREAT FOR

    Those looking for a new hotel in the French Quarters. Great for all types of travelers.

What we love

  • The old parts of the house have been renovated and restored while the new parts are fresh and modern. The aesthetic is simple, trendy with wonderful elements of the traditional. We love how there’s no pretense.
  • The central courtyard with a vertical garden plays host to world travelers who stop by in the evening for some fabulous food and drinks
  • The spacious rooms are simply designed with things typical of Pondicherry - coloured cement flooring, hand-made Chettinad tiles on the walls, locally made lamp-shades, furniture inspired from the colonial times made of the local Kalimadu wood. This is coupled with all the amenities a modern traveler needs to make his/ her stay comfortable. Quite perfect we think!

What to know

  • This modern boutique hotel is located in the heart of the French quarters of Pondicherry. The location is great to peek into an era gone by, visit the charming designer boutiques, stop by at the bakeries and cafes or even just about walk around on the cobbled streets.
  • The artistic bar is influenced by the famous Amar Chitra Katha comics, but with a modern twist. It’s been painted by a local artist who otherwise paints film posters outside cinema halls.
  • The suites have sofas that double up as an extra bed. If you’re traveling with children, these rooms may be a wiser choice.
  • The courtyard restaurant comes alive in the evenings. If you’re the type who may get disturbed by even a little sound, we recommend you opt for a room on the first or second floor.

Carte Blanche Restaurant

A very interesting and subtle blend of South Indian and French culinary art produced the “Creole” cuisine. The recipes at Carte Blanche were passed on to the Chef by old Pondicherrian families and feature a mix of sea food, meats, vegetables and rice, all prepared with the right spices and touches.
