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...More

About
Description
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 More 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. Less

You can check directly on the Neemrana website or call them up. Alternately, any travel website will list it (Expedia, MakeMyTrip, GoIbibo, Clear trip, etc.). I booked via MakeMyTrip.
