Le Pondy!

One of K's constant cribs has been that I never plan any trips for him. It is always him that plans our getaways. So for his birthday this year I decided to plan something that he would like. Considering we had no leave available yet and considering how much he lurves Pondy, I thought I would start finding out some new resorts in Pondy where we could spend the weekend. I googled and read reviews on Trip Advisor and finally decided to try out "Le Pondy". Le Pondy is a luxury resort on the outskirts of Pondicherry. It had fabulous reviews and I must admit, the minute I saw some pictures, I was hooked. I wrote to them and got all the details and finally decided to try out their "Luxury Pool Villa". That was good decision I made. The pool villa is to die for! It is pricey let me tell you(when my folks knew, they were shocked). But I would say it is worth every penny if you are doing it once in a way for a special occasion. It is big, sprawling, comes with a lovely private pool and a couple of lounge type chairs, has an open shower and is super charming. We fell in love with our villa as soon as we stepped in. The villa also comes with a living room and a bedroom which were equally big. As soon as we checked in the afternoon, we decided to jump into the pool which looked super inviting. The cool water amidst the warm rays of the sun gave me such a fuzzy feeling.. I enjoyed it thoroughly! Post a good 1 hour in the pool, we got hungry. We headed out to their restaurant and had their lunch buffet. We did not have high hopes on the taste but we were taken aback. The food was surprisingly good. The salads were fresh, the breads were warm and the desserts were yum!
In the evening, we took a stroll to their private beach. The beach is clean and has a life guard on duty as well so it is perfectly safe. It was so nice to sit on the shore, watching the waves and just dreaming. In the evening, I had asked for a birthday cake for K to be delivered at midnight, which was promptly done. Mango cheesecake was the perfect start to his birthday ;-) He was totally surprised and I enjoyed seeing his gleaming face. The only hitch to this entire place was that their AC tripped twice - I have written to the concerned managers to take action. But other than that, I would totally recommend this resort. It is perfect for all kinds - couples on a getaway, family with kids, business folks who want to meet, elders and the likes. Service is also very good! Do give this place a shot if Pondicherry is your next destination. Leaving you with some pictures of our villa(please excuse my pic clarity, they were taken on my cell phone) - Cheers!!
