Le PONDICHERY

Located on the Eastern coast of India, Pondicherry is a balmy town with a wonderful cultural mélange of a unique Franco-Tamil ambience.

Vintage yet modern, our Lifestyle Suite “Le Pondicherry” is washed in shades of subtle magnolia and bright aureolin. We have charmingly strewn the accomodation with signature elements in pure wood like an Indo French Oak armoire, a restored 18th century European Planter’s Chair to comfortably lounge upon, ceiling lamps done with the patient craft of natural wicker weaving, an antique East Indian Rosewood steamer trunk turned into a coffee table, even a Teak escritoire and a heritage Chettinad style carved door which unexpectedly leads you to a bath area.

We bring you the very quaint confluence of the feel of a cosy private home with wooden shutters juxtaposed with the focal wallpaper icon façade of rue calme with a quintessential hand pulled rickshaw.

The Pondicherrian Tourism Slogan is “Give time a break”.

It seems appropriate as our Suite’s aura beckons you to enchantingly indulge in that milieu. Come visit the serenely simple majesty of the Riviera of the East at The Shalimar!
