“A calm place close to Auroville”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

The resort is really cool , but there s nothing called sea view , Really spacious and clean rooms , we found the food to be average , the swimming pool is really clean , take the room facing the Pool u can relax in the evening . There s kerala ayurvedic massage parlour out there which is cheap compared and does really well , it is worth the stay

Room Tip: Dont take the sea facing room s not worth it

After staying in many different places in and around Pondicherry (we are regular Pondicherry visitors for the past 12 years) we finally seem to have found the perfect place that works for the whole family (2 adults with 6-year old twin-girls). In the past 2 years we visited this hotel 5 times, between 2 and 4 days. We have a consistent positive experience be it the atmosphere of the whole place, cleanliness and beauty of rooms, quality and taste of food (try the fish dishes and the cheese...), friendliness of staff, cleanliness of the pool and so on. Finally a place far away enough from the noisy town, without screaming televisions in adjoining rooms (believe it or not there are NO televisions in the rooms - what a relieve for people who are looking for relaxation and serenity!!!). The members of the French family who own the place are very friendly, helpful and directly involved in the day to day business, which guarantees a well appreciated French flavor to the whole setup. We will come again and again and again...

i happened to spot mango hill on my annual trip to auroville and ive decided to definitely stay there during my next trip. the service is excellent. the best ive experienced so far! the food is really good. you actually get exotic french food like bouillabaise and creole food as well...and it tastes really good. the pool is really pretty with its giant cashew tree right in the middle of it. its got a cute little boutique store and they also make their own cheeze. what more can you ask for....

It was a very pleasant stay. The ambience of the hotel is superb. We stayed in the Thai Cottage and it was very romantic with the view of the pool. Moreover a distant view of the ocean can be seen from the balcony. The breakfast was not complimentary. They serve buffet breakfast which is expensive. The quality of the food is really good.

Mango hill is located on a peaceful location .we really enjoyed the pool it's very nice and on sides of pool are jets giving same feeling as jacuzzi .the staff is very friendly and helpful.
The best part is the Ayurvedic center it has a very good Ayurvedic doctor giving treatment . I have tried so many Ayurvedic center and even in Kerala but this one was even better than them .
Only downside was breakfast, could be more sumptuous .

Room Tip: The deluxe room has a private balcony /sit out area and very spacious .

The hotel is nice and comfortable. Calm and serene.

The location is not so great though.It is some 5-7 Kms away from Pondicherry and in a village. You will have to take a right turn if you are coming from Chennai on ECR road and is difficult to locate. Thanks for google maps which helped :)

The restaurant has decent food but options for vegeterian is very limited.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the first or 2nd floor. Ground floor rooms are not advisable.

My family and I were on a weekend getaway to Pondy. We had booked a classic room for my husband and myself and a suite for our parents. Both the rooms were lovely and clean. I loved the view of the pool from our room which was even more beautiful by the night. There is a Spa and a Cheese cellar but unfortunately due to time crunch we couldn't see either. The restaurant is awesome with an open place to sit back and relax and I loved the interiors here, done European style which gives a hint of the cultural diversity of Pondy. Ample car parking and close vicinity to Auroville are plus points.

Room Tip: The classic room is amazing for people who enjoy being close to nature, also value for money.
