    Private Beaches, Plunge Pools And Spa: This Pondy Resort Is Perfect For A Romantic Break

    Aakanksha posted on 17 May

    Ten-Second Takeaway

    Luxurious, beautiful and with rooms that either overlook the sea, lake or have private pools, you’ll forgive me for checking into Le Pondy, diverting from the usual backpacking experience Pondicherry offers.

    Live It Up

    Now don’t get me wrong, I love myself the old-school Pondicherry life which involves wandering the French and Tamil quarters, diving into a café, and then perhaps staying at a budget homestay or redone French home.  But when I saw Le Pondy, I wanted a luxury and romantic experience. And at INR 8,000 for a double room, it wasn’t irrecoverable damage on the bank account!

    While it’s a good 40 minutes from the main town of Pondicherry, the fact that it has a private beach, villas with amazing views and a gorgeous swimming pool, more than makes up for it. The main area resembles the French-style architecture with thatched roofs to keep temperatures down, and the arches along the sides meant that quintessential charm. This is also where meals are had {I only had breakfast here, as I trooped into town for the other meals}.

    Room With A View

    I picked the sea view rooms, thought the pool villas were really tempting. But I wasn’t disappointed. A four-poster bed, a futon at the bottom of it, and a balcony with deck chairs was just what I needed to zone out, and focus on the roar of the sea. Not for long though! Because if you’re a water baby like me, the swimming pool will fast become your favourite part of the resort. There are two sunken bars near the pool, so when you’re done wallowing, you can still keep cool in the water while stylishly sipping on a cocktail the barman mixes. Perfect for those romantic photo ops!

    Life's A {Private} Beach

    Since it’s a way out of town, you may not like to hit town all the time. And why bother! Le Pondy comes with a private beach! Oh, yes it does! Clean, though void of any towels and deck chairs, it’s fabulous to just sit around, soak in the sun and sand, and then jump into the warm waters to cool off. A pool table, foosball, an Ayurvedic spa and a regular spa. In fact, they have all-out spa packages if you want some healing. But for me, the beach was therapeutic enough.
