Le Dupleix offers a fusion between the rich, colonial heritage and a contemporary flavor. The hotel beautifully complements Pondicherry. It is a 14-room luxury heritage hotel, nestling in an 18th century French colonial villa, originally built for the Maire Mayor of Pondicherry. Now restored and modernized the hotel is an architectural masterpiece showcasing the life of the 18th century French Governor Marquis Joseph-Francois Dupleix. The 14 suites are all distinct in style and furnishings and each provides a unique experience.

We stayed here with a large group and the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. This was a calm, tranquil oasis, but close enough to walk around the French quarter and to the beach. The food and drinks were also good. Will definitely go back there.

Hi, I don’t think the construction work nearby will be over that fast. Pls check with hotel. As for use of the pool, the hotel staff at check in actively tell you which facilities you can use at Promenade and the pool is one of them, so no worries on that front! Have a good holiday!
