Those who wish to discover the unexplored side of Pondicherry and relish the fabled Creole cuisine. A great place for solo traveler, couples and a family.

What we love

  • The 100 year old house has been restored to perfection while maintaining the vibe of another era. This is reflected not only through the aesthetics, furniture, open courtyards, large swings in the corridors but also through the extremely hospitable staff that goes out of its way to ensure your stay is comfortable.
  • The hotel is extremely well ventilated and lit through the two open courtyards with the lush tropical plants and a beautiful terrace.
  • The rooms are simply designed with teak wood and comfortable cotton furnishings while being equipped with all the modern amenities that you may require for a comfortable stay.

What to know

  • The chef here specializes in the Franco - Tamil Creole cuisine. Make sure you try this lovely cuisine during your stay here.
  • This traditional Tamil home is located in the Tamil quarters of Pondicherry which is a short 10 minute walk from the well known French qaurters.
  • The house once belonged to a prominent Iyer Brahmin family and was then taken over by the Registration office of Pondicherry.
  • Observe the artistic creations that adorn the walls of the house. These are by the local artists who are supported and allowed to display their works on the walls. Paintings are changed regularly giving everyone a fair chance. If you like something, do go ahead and connect with the artist.
