Budget Friendly Accomodation in Pondicherry
After a lot of research on budget hotels we came across this budget friendly accommodation at Abirami Residency which is at Anna Salai, Puducherry and being located within the city is well connected to the market, white town and the promenade.
Food at Abirami Residency
It is primarily a pure-veg hotel and the package includes a complimentary breakfast. The only lunch we had was on the first day at Abirami which was not satisfactory but the breakfast spread every morning was decent with the menu dominated by South-Indian dishes.
Ambience and RoomsThe ambience is very safe, friendly, hygienic and ideal for family stays. This hotel doesn’t provide any extra-curricular activities or swimming pool but the rooms are very spacious and accommodative. We had booked 2 rooms one being triple deluxe which accommodated 3 people and a family room with 2 bedrooms, 2 washrooms and 2 led televisions. This room had a very beautiful dressing table with a huge mirror which was like a treat for us girls.
Service and Hospitality
The staff was very sweet and cooperative and the housekeeping was very efficient. There is 24 hour hot water facility and no power cuts.
Budget and Cost
Both the rooms for 3 nights along with breakfast costed us around ₹2640 per head. If you wish to stay in high end properties in Pondy, they are situated opposite the Promenade giving an unbounded view of the Bay of Bengal.
Le Pondy ~ A luxury stay at Pondicherry
What are the odds that visiting the same destination will get you through a different experience. Two years back when we visited the French Town of India, Pondy we went with our friends on a tight budget where in every expense was calculated and thought of before spending. Now after two years when we visited Pondy it was a complete 360-degree diverse experience for us as we were staying at a premium luxury beach resort, Le Pondy.
Le Pondy is a beach resort which is situated at the pristine Paradise Beach of Pondicherry and is an absolute delight for its ambience, private beach area that it has to offer and cottage style rooms for your stay.
This resort offers two categories of rooms being cottages with a private pool and cottages without a private pool. For our four day stay at Le Pondy, we had booked the cottage rooms without pool and it was a spacious accommodation for two guests in each room. We did not book the cottages with private pools because their common pool is almost the size of an Olympic pool.
Restaurant and Food experiences
Le Pondy has its own in-house restaurant that serves diverse cuisines that can be relished during your stay. Their sea food preparations are a must try. The restaurant is situated beside the pool which makes it a perfect place to leisure around and have chilled out vacacy vibes.
The overall hospitality of the place was very warm and positive. The staff was well responsive and cordial. During our stay, we ordered room service a couple of times and the service was swift and timely. Some additional facilities that Le Pondy provides are :
Mocktails and Cocktails and other beverages by the pool
Mini Bar in the room
