Where to stay in Pondicherry

The bulk of visitors to Pondicherry choose to stay in the east side of town. Close to the sea and the well-maintained waterfront, the old colonial French district features a number of stylish boutique hotels and budget-friendly guesthouses, as well as a solid selection of standard hotels along the newer roads. Ashrams and spa retreats provide an array of additional facilities, usually with sea views and more spacious surroundings to the north of the main city.
