Located on the cusp of conscious and contemporary living, Pondicherry is both a sleepy seaside town and a globally-known hub for art, sustainability and slow living. Given all this, we know you’ll be visiting soon, so the real question is––where should you stay when you visit? Mansi, (@manstini) our helpline for everything Pondy has shared her precious recommendations for charming boutique hotels in Pondicherry.

Boutique stay in White Town

If you’re looking for a small, intimate stay located at the heart of the city, then La Closerie may be the right choice. Positioned just off the promenade at White Town, this boutique hotel boasts modern decor and a lovely pool. 

If you’re in the mood for some French-style architecture and lots of open spaces, Villa Helena is the place for you. Located in White town, this boutique hotel also houses a restaurant where you can meet friends for drinks and a great dinner.

Outside Pondicherry

Around 10km south of the city is Lily Pool Villa, a lush idyllic hotel stay. The beach is just walking distance from the property, and trees and hammocks fill up the space. Here you can take in the beauty of the natural world around you at leisure.

Pondicherry is generously scattered with villa stays and boutique hotels. These are just a few suggestions to get you on your way! When in doubt, check the Urbanaut App for more recommendations.
