If you are looking for a resort in the true sense, here is one. The Big beach resort provides a calm atmosphere away from the hassles of the city. Decent amount of activities to involve through out the day, a lovely pool and private beach to relax during anytime of the day and last but not the least, some excellent south Indian food The pool is neat and clean and my son wanted to stay there all day. The beach is just two minutes by walk and quite private. The lawn across the lobby is big enough for some evening play. The activity center stations interesting indoor games like caroms, chess, pallan kuzhi, snakes and ladders, ice hockey, video games, etc. The rooms provide decent space and comfort House keeping staff is diligent and quick to respond to requests. The staff who run the activity center and conduct the events at the lobby are very friendly, helpful and full of energy. We had some great time taking part in/ witnessing the fun activities conducted through out the day. The administrative staff are courteous and curious to know about the experiences of all the guests and are constantly seen taking feedback from them The resort is located some 15-20 km from the city in a very remote location isolated from any amenities in the near vicinity. On account of this, I was very apprehensive about sightseeing and food when I entered the resort. But to my relief, the resort by itself provides wholesome rest and entertainment that we didn't step out for any sightseeing. And also the restaurant is too good with a lot of variety in the buffet and you would definitely struggle what to eat and what not to leave. The food is a little expensive but worth it. In the pool, only nylon wear is allowed. So, better carry your own swim wear or else you could buy from the store in the resort My only suggestion was to include some bicycles for the kids as they would enjoy riding themselves as almost all kids know to ride one today If I were to stay at this resort again, I wouldn't actually do anything differently. Why would I when all I wanted was some good rest, some decent amount of activities and some great food and I got all of them.
We had received a voucher from Club Mahindra and since Pondhicherry was one of the places on my wish list, so me and my hubby decided to explore it I had done enough research about the places and cafes that I wanted to visit however I missed on checking the exact location of Club Mahindra from the main city. We were travelling from Chennai to Pondicherry via the famous East Coast Route which is so scenic. Club Mahindra is 18 kms from Pondicherry bus stand which is why we ended up spending a lot of time doing to and fro Coming to the resort, it was very welcoming and pleasant. A special mention to ALL the staff members who have a genuine smile on their face :). The room was comfortable with a nice balcony and spacious bathroom. We instantly loved and my hubby declared that we need not go to the city for exploration and rather enjoy our stay at the resort. (Though we did otherwise because, I had to explore the city ;) The best part is the private, pristine and peaceful beach. You can stay they forever but, it is open till only 6. 30 in the evening. Other amenities that one can avail of are: Swimming pool, table tennis, carom, air hockey and pool table. There were fun activities like quiz for young ones and housie Buffet dinner was available for non-members for Rs. 1000 with taxes. However, we opted for a la chart which turned out to be very yum. Staff members were indeed polite and in a non intrusive way asked us if we needed anything We got great guidance and tips regarding what all places we need to explore and the best route and mode of transport Overall good experience.
We chose this place for our short visit & wanted to just relax without much sight seeing. The resort lived up to our expectations with all amenities we would have expected out of a Club Mahindra resort The resort is on 24-acre property, right next to the beach (public one, but not crowded). It has all the amenities including a clean swimming pool (with a kids' pool), children's park, indoor play area, outdoor beach volleyball, cricket ground, shack (which was not open when we visited), bicycles, beach scooter among other things. The landscaping is nicely done and the rooms are well appointed. The bathrooms have a separate geysers for hot water when needed and if you need anything extra, service is just a call away. It might take a little while though for you to get something if it is raining and it is understandable The beach is pretty clean and you can take long walks or jogs. The beach closes at 6:30 PM. There were no water sports activities when we visited, but the resort had a beach scooter you can hire to ride on the beach. The sea was rough as it was monsoon Restaurant has a decent buffet spread and the bar doesn't disappoint you either There are activities organized by the resort through the day and is enjoyed a lot by the kids and adults alike Staff is very courteous and will try to meet any reasonable asks. Overall, a great place for short family break
It is about 18 km away from Pondicherry, just off the road to Cuddalore. Being way out of town is a good thing as it is an ideal place to relax, unwind, chill out, enjoy the surroundings and forget everything urban. If you do need to get some city sightseeing done, you can hire a taxi (Rs 1200 to 1400 for four hours) The resort is bang on the beach and cottages, in the midst of trees and plants are well spaced out and privacy is ensured. The rather large room features good air conditioning, good lighting, a large bed and a nice sofa on which an adult or two smaller kids can comfortably sleep. They also provide an easy chair, flat screen TV with most of the channels we normally like to watch, tea/coffee making facility and a refrigerator. There was no covered wardrobe and we had to make with a few hangers in one corner. The spacious balcony is a good place to enjoy a drink or to catch forty winks when the sun is not too hot The roomy bathroom opens out to a closed balcony open to the sky and, with a little imagination, you can pretend is an "outdoor" shower. While they provide body and face lotion, you need to carry all other toiletries that you need. They don't give you a shower cap but, if you manage to get your hair wet, a hair dryer is at hand The lobby, which is actually a long sea facing veranda, is where everything happens and the only place where you get WiFi in the resort. The lawn in front of the lobby is where enthusiasts can use the bowling machine, trampoline, kiddie cars or go land sobbing. They have an all-terrain vehicle which you can drive on the on the beach and for the more adventurous they offer water sobbing. Besides this, the resort arranges all the usual kids activities. The friendly staff ensure that, the young ones are kept busy and happy. The evening entertainments were lively and great fun Swimming is best done in the pool as they discourage people from going into the sea in the interest of safety. To read the newspapers you have to go to the activity room and many people do feel the absence of a gym With no eating places nearby, we had all our meals at the resort on all three days. The well laid buffets offer a fairly good spread without causing the problems of choice like the more lavish ones do. While most of the food was pretty good, we remember the chilly crab, kariveppilai fried fish and the Pondicherry manga fish. Ordering off the a la chart menu means you have to wait a while to get your meal. Room service is limited and takes a long time to reach. They offer two meal and three buffet meal packages, which become rather cost effective especially when the member and the senior citizen discounts are factored in Two well stocked, reasonably priced bars, one off the lobby and the other in the pool, feature a pretty good variety of wines and liquor. The cocktails were excellent The people are a credit to the resort and make the service friendly and cheerful This resort is a great place to relax and for the kids to have a ball. Sitting in the evenings on one of the large cane chairs in the lobby, enveloped by the sea breeze and sipping one of their excellent cocktails is a wonderful experience!
The location was fine as it was just near the beach. The hotel was good and I had my food in the hotel itself. The food quality was good. They have all types of food available in the hotel. I had taken A/c room. The A/c and geyser were working properly. The check-in and check-out was fine. The staff are cooperative and helpful. They provide indoor and outdoor games. This was one of the best hotels of Club Mahindra. The rooms are quite clean and neat. The room service is very good. It was a very good place to stay.
