Pondicherry accommodation - Palais de Mahe

Palais de Mahe

The French laid out their streets in Pondicherry in a formal grid pattern. This was White Town. There are dozens of beautifully preserved houses and streets  in the French quarter but there are also as many crumbling shells. Palais de Mahe is a facade intervention and au courant take on French culture: a fine three-storey hotel with walkways, porticos and a very welcome, if not authentic, swimming pool. It is the best place to stay in Pondicherry.

Just two streets back from the seafront of the Bay of Bengal, not only is this boutique hotel conveniently located, it also benefits from a welcome sea breeze.

With 18 spacious rooms and characteristic ochre collonades, you are transported you to the era of Dupleix and High French power on the Coromandel. Fine period inspired furnishings provide just the right finishing touch. Of course, the room appointments are reassuringly modern, as is the inviting plunge pool, located right in the courtyard.
