Palais de Mahe


Being right in the French Quarter, just a few minutes from the seafront, is about is good as it gets in Pondicherry. Being here is really about taking it easy, so relish the lack of traffic and spend a few days exploring the area’s sun-dappled streets on foot. There are quirky boutiques and little restaurants to enjoy, plus of course there’s the seafront which is nice to wander along during the day. *Note that the ‘beach’ here is stony and not for swimming.

Ask the hotel where you can hire a bicycle to trundle around the French Quarter. Traffic is increasing but many people still travel on 2 wheels. Here you can admire the lovely restored (and sometimes sadly crumbling) pastel-coloured mansions with their balconies adorned with vibrant flowers. The French Quarter is also a nice place to hang out in a café with a good book and watch time pass you by.

the massages and ayurvedic treatments here are a great reason to stay. The hotel also has an ayurvedic doctor who can advise on treatment and diet.

the pool is just 15m long and if the hotel is busy it can get crowded, but at quiet times it’s great for a refreshing dip.

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.
