Hotel Olive Auroville, Pondicherry
Auroville Main Road Kuyilapalayam Auroville
I am a devotee of Shri Aurobindo and in May 2015 I had got a chance to go to Pondicherry to explore Shri Aurobindo Ashram. There I stayed there from 5th May to 15th May and my staying location was Olive Auroville Hotel located near at Aurovile about 25 km from Pondicherry. The Hotel was filled with a divine silence and soothing feeling coming from its surrounding. I booked a single bed room their for 9 days and night. The hotel provided me the best facilities ranging from food to laundry. The hotel staffs are quite polite and always tend to aid their guest. The most I liked about the hotel is its surrounding which is free from noise and qiute peaceful and charming. Besides the hotel room was studded with all types of facility ranging from TV to AC. I suggest every one to prefer this hotel if you ever go to Pondicherry.
Good location to stay with couple or with family. Nice welcome and ambience. Good service by them while arriving and also while depart. Good rooms with ventilation and nice interior. Nice interior with furniture and other amenities. Super garden with lights. Garden well developed. Restaurant coming in near future. Overall nice place to stay and relax.
It was a leisure trip in the beginning of the year. We prefer travelling in offseason to avoid crowd. We stayed in Olive for one night and totally loved the feel of it. The rooms are very big, with additional room with sofa and reading table. The location is perfect to take tours to Auroville, we visited twice in our visit. The boutiques there are really good. Also, in the road towards the Auroville, where the hotel is there are some good homemade wood fired pizza available. Must try I would say. There is a small place serving crepes too. Only thing we missed during our stay was, the meditation at Auroville. You are supposed to book ahead as there is a limited batch for every morning, for which the tickets are sold the previous day afternoon 2 pm. Even at hotel, they would arrange if informed in advance.
This is a small hotel with very few rooms. We stayed in Suite rooms. The rooms are really luxurious. Neat, clean and spacious. The hotel is on Auroville main road. So very close to Auroville Ashram. There is a small garden. The restaurant people are very cool and can make things according to your preference (apart from that published in menu card). The hotel staff is very friendly. Not much of activities place. If you are going in a group (we were 3 families), it was fun.
In the hot Pondy, the cooled room of the Olive Villa was a sweet welcome. Located pretty near to food joints, it is a good choice if you are looking for a relaxed stay. Breakfast provided was also good enough. Rooms were pretty fine, clean and hygienic. There is a great Pizza point near buy(Tanto's). One should surely try. Overall, it was a quite stay which was the requirement as well.
