This was my first visit to the Union that had by the been influenced by Dutch, Portuguese and the French culture. I had mixed feelings about this trip, but having completed the trip, I can proudly say it is Goa and Madurai put together. A place where you can feel some liveliness in the clean beaches, a place to visit huge 1000 year architecture temples and a place to feel the warmth of those people I made this trip between 28 to 30th and was planning for this trip since a month ago. I wanted to stay In a good hotel, as we wanted the experience to be best. We decided to take the road travel by car, which was a bit tiring but return journey was pleasant and easy. I looked at websites, compared prices of same hotels and finally booked Anantha Heritage after going through it. Our first choices were expensive but when we went there, we realized that we had got an exceptional hotel, with courteous staff during our stay and couldn't have expected more The property is located right in the centre and hence, you can easily navigate to the up scale market place like the on Nehru road, the aurobindo ashram, the Pondicherry Beach road, the best cusines for the night or day all on a rented bike or for the over enthusiasts by walk. We had rented a bike, which made navigating the structured cubed streets and roads with ease. Every day we would choose a place, travel by bike and come back to the hotel for rest This property is located behind the Primal temple and you can see the temple right from your window. Very serene and nice. The breakfast served was awesome, so were the staff. Special mention of Shakti and Selva who did night and day duties and served breakfast and treated you like a King Rooms are pretty much one and a nice bathroom. All styled as found in old houses, with big wooden frames, big grandfather reclining chair measuring 6 feet in length and roofs higher than 12-14 feet. My 7 year old daughter, didn't feel like leaving the resort, because, she was truly mesmerized by the Biggest Key which we had ever seen in our lives, the antique bed and wardrobes. She actually became totally independent and started arranging her clothes in the wardrobe and instructed as like nanny One of the mistakes I did, was take the old route via tindivanam to Podicherry and was tired of the bad roads. One good thing was I could see the Periya Koil which is a 1000 yr old koil in its full magnanimity. While coming I took the suggested route via Vellore, Arkot and was happy to have reached Bangalore in 6 hours. I would suggest to charge your cellphones enough to allow it to direct via the GPS route Things that I would do differently would be to hire a cab, travel to Puducherry and visit Auroville and other places of great meditation.
We were looking for a weekend to let relax and unwind, Anantha heritage turned out to be the perfect supplement. Booking was easy, over mail and once we reached Pondicherry, it was a 15 min ride from bus stand. The first reaction when you see the exterior is a perfect antidote for the captives of urbanization like us. The interiors are reminiscent of the yesteryear. We received a warm welcome and the staff was extremely helpful with answering our queries. With minimalist furniture, the rooms are an extension of the retro theme of the hotel. Our days began with a sumptuous breakfast and a big smile from the staff which brightened our days.
I have visited the Pondy for a holiday trip along with my daughter &my wife, we have booked the hotel through phone, there is no advance payment for the booking. They have guided me through my travel from Chennai even though it is only 3 hrs journey. The check out time is 12noon. It is same in almost all hotels in pondy The only thing we have got problem is the way auto rickshaw drivers treated us. The distance is almost 2 to 3 kms, as per the rate in Chennai, it should be below Rs. 50, but they have asked Rs 100/ and as per some of the auto drivers we came out of the bust stand & goy and auto for Rs. 60/, Since I know the local language (Tamil) I can able to mange, otherwise it is too difficult for the outsiders The hotel room was very neat & decent & it is almost similar in appearnce seen in the internet. They have prepared food in case if we need it, they charge moderate Rs 150/lunch/person. Morning breakfast is free, the quality of the food is good The cable TV is good but it is difficult to operate the remote The AC was very good & two fans are also fitted The staff was very courteous & offered a very warm welcome. The hotel manager Mr. Frederic was very supportive & guided us for the tour & arranged a call taxi also The advice to travelers is the most part of the pondy is walkable distance from the hotel. Only the Arvidhar ashram & other 2 temples are some what distant. Near by hotel nice primal temple & manakulakarai vinayagar temple is there. The existing room itself very good & neat.
