Guests looking to experience the vintage colonial charm of Pondicherry while staying in a plush boutique hotel right in the heart of the French Quarters.

What we love

  • Under the shade of an old mango tree and in the heart of French Quarters of Pondicherry, sits a luxurious colonial boutique hotel - an 18th century architectural delight that was the erstwhile home of the mayor of Pondicherry.
  • We love how beautifully the manor has been restored while infusing subtle modern touches into its design and architectural style - a glass stairway connects the different levels, each white washed and with high ceilings, colonnade verandahs, lazy planter chairs and arched entrances, while a stone fountain fills the air with the soothing sounds of falling water.
  • Each room has its own aesthetic style and character. The penthouses are located on the second floor and come with sumptuous glass windows on three sides offering delightful views of the neighbourhood. The deluxe rooms are located on the ground and first level, providing easy access to the courtyard restaurant and bar.

What to know

  • The courtyard restaurant at the mansion makes for the perfect venue for an utterly romantic meal where you can relish gourmet cuisines ranging from French, Continental, Indian and even Creole, plated artistically, and best enjoyed with a stiff cocktail or a glass of wine. During season time, a part of the courtyard turns into the stage for musicians who play much loved numbers, tempting couples to ask their beloved for a dance!
  • We love how easy it is to just walk over or cycle to the charming cafes, restaurants and bakeries situated on the cobbled streets of the French Quarters. Take a croissant on the go and finish it off with a lip smacking crepe cake or a lemon berry savarin!
