Dune de l'Orient

17 Rue Romain Rolland Street White Town, Pondicherry 605001 India
Traveller (288)

Only a French flirtation with India’s bewildering diversity could have produced the refined and elusive magic of ‘Pondicherry’ which contains the magic of the whole Orient in one name. Now, this French 18th-century coastal lifestyle in India is brought alive again in a home which is a virtual art gallery with etchings and hand written postcards all over its walls. Recreated in high-raftered ceilings with savonnerie rugs and easy chairs to lounge away the afternoons. Four poster beds – (one accessed by three stairs ! ) – to help you recreate your past with dreams. Savour a French mansion full of Indian warmth. Enjoy fine Creole eating where Tamil spices mix with subtle French under-statement to titillate the palates of gourmets.

This is a small and quaint hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. We had a large comfortable room with a nice balcony overlooking the courtyard. The food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced for a hotel, however it does not serve alcohol.
The location is very go

We had high hopes as we walked into a lovely courtyard but the food was ok and nothing special and service not great although there were lots of staff doing nothing but looking busy. My sea food curry was very small and came a good 10 minutes after my husband’s main course

We popped in as we’d seen the restaurant on Rick Stein’s India programme. It wasn’t as grand as we’d expected but the staff and food were great. Two courses with non-alcoholic drinks came to about £17 for two of us. I believe you can bring your own wine etc if you prefer.

"Try to find a room which has a door to the bathroom if you can."
"Rooms on the first floor are more quiter"
"upper floors - there is quite a lot of traffic on the street."
"Room named Casimbazaar has an open toilet, so that might not be a good option for some."
"Take a room on the first floor. However, the street facing rooms can be noisy."
US$122 - US$284 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
