“This is it!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Simple by far the best way to stay in Pondy. Beautyfull spacious rooms in relaxed contemporary style. Excellent and very friendly staff, perfect location. This is by far the best place in Pondy and i've stayed in each of them in the past years.

la Villa has just recently opened, it's brand new. Some things are not perfect yet (sloooow internet, no licence in the restaurant) but i am 100% sure, those will be fixed soon, because the team obviously really wants to create a place you would be happy to stay everywhere in the world - a ambition you feel well.

It is a pleasure to be here! I just was temted not to write this, because danger is, that those 6 available rooms will be fast booked and no room left for my next stay in town.


Stayed August 2014, travelled on business

First of all thanks to our host Kavitha! You took so much care and with such warmth, we felt like coming to friends... The villa is an awsome place with so much love to all the little details. It is anything else than "just" a hotel. The service is excellent and the breakfast with all the fresh food was so yummmmmi. Definately that's the best place to stay in Pondycherry. We felt really sad when we left the place....
There is no restaurant in the hotel at moment. But therefor you don't have the smell and the noise. There is also no gym, but who needs this on a honeymoon?? The pool area whith the trees coming out of the rooftop floor is the perfect place to chill out!!!

We stayed there from 25th to 27th of April 2014
I am familiar with Pondichery and was very curious to stay in this new hôtel in the heart of the old town. It is a pure jewel !
We stayed in this old house from the 19th century intelligently renovated and converted into a small luxury hotel with a swimming pool brings it to a level never achieved in Pondichery.
It has been renovated by the same architect of the existing Villa Shanti and the result is outstanding.
We appreciate: Original silver cutlery, beautiful european porcelain, crystal glasses, excellent Fragonard bath amenities,...and the free minibar. The staff is just perfect, not too intrusive but professional enough to anticipate your needs.
We were brought back to the real soul of this city in a classy indo french ambiance and the spirit of a luxury journey

Unforgettable, Thank you LA VILLA.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Luxury and Sobriety in PondicherryLA VILLA is located in the heart of the old quarter of Pondicherry called ‘the white town’, at walking distance from the main attractions.Respecting the heritage of its colonial architecture, inspired by its Pondicherien past, the original walls of the ground floor converse with the immaculate white walls, teak wood, and glass and metal of the new extension. A second birth has been given to ancient materials and techniques like centuries-year-old bricks, lime plaster, colour cement flooring, and hand made tiles from the villages of Tamil Nadu as well as local granite. Old wood from levelled houses has been reused to create elegant contemporary furniture and local handicrafts are combined with the most luxurious and sophisticated western design. Avoiding the false interpretation of the city’s heritage and the mistakes of the modern developed world, the local environment has been treated as an ally, not as an enemy. ... more   less
