Maison Perumal


There are no real amenities in the property other than the bar and restaurant, so Maison Perumal is really the type of place to use as a base to explore the town.

Interest for tourists is really centred in the French Quarter which is approx 10 mins walk from the hotel. There are some temples of interest in the Tamil quarter but little else of note. The seafront (formerly know as the Promenade) at Goubert Avenue, is about 15 mins walk. Wander along the seafront during the day and catch the sea breeze, but don’t go for the beach which is not sandy and the sea is not swimmable.

Ask the hotel where to hire a bicycle and trundle around the French Quarter aka White Town, traffic is increasing but many people still travel on 2 wheels. Admire the lovely restored (and sometimes sadly crumbling) mansions which are dotted around. The centre of Pondicherry is not that large and the French quarter is a nice place to hang out in a café with a good book to pass the time.

The hotel can organize a cycle-rickshaw ride for two (Rs 600) to give you a day tour of Pondicherry.

guests can avail of the hotel’s sister property’s amenities: Palais de Mahe offers yoga, spa and massage

Sri Aurobindo ashram:
Head to the ashram on St. Gilles Street and pay homage to Sri Aurobindo and ‘the Mother’. This is not, strictly speaking, a tourist attraction, but visitors are welcome at set times and for those interested in their spiritual side it can prove an interesting experience. The ashram has a book and gift shop.

Take a 20-30 min rickshaw/car ride to Auroville and experience a very unique and spiritual place. The Matri Mandir is an amazing, golden, domed temple and there are some good food and arts and crafts shops as well.

For the beach, the best options are away from the city somewhat. Try heading north up the ECR road or head south a little to Paradise beach which is best accessed by ferry.
