if u r looking for a place which is peaceful and beautiful then it is the right place. i stayed there for 3 day and it was amazing... the room view of sea, relaxing at hammock, swimming pool, gr8 food , friendly staff and not to forget free wifi. room tariff is very reasonable, this hotel is closest to the beach. the view from the rooms make u forget all problems. i would suggest u to see sunrise specially, its out of this world. . During my stay there a corporate group was enjoying bonfire they were also playing tug of war etc

The view of the hotel is magnificent and i can tell you this is one of the best view of the sea you can have at Pondy. The landscape is
just worth the price you pay. Infact the tariffs arer higher than what the room deserves, but I guess you will let it go given what lies in front of you
The beach is dangerous to swim, thus unless you are not an expert do not try to venture deep. The restaurant service is slow, and should be avoided when it gets filled up completely. Infact there are too less staff manning too many guests.
Teh breakfast spread is above average. The rates are quite high on the weekend and can be negotiated if you visit on the weekdays. The staff is courteous and helpful but slight slow in their approach. Probably its fine in a resort ! There are cottage available as well, thus a family can check it out.
The name of the hotel is Pondicherry Ashok, thus it took me some time to search for it. and write a review. Hopefully the admin will take note and get it changed.

This is a very nice property indeed. Located on the outskirts of the city, this resort gets you into that holiday mood. At over 60 acres this is a huge resort. Went here with a few friends and took the 2 cottages. This gave us a large private lawn and a sit out. The cottage is away from the main block and gives you full privacy. This room like all others in the resort is beach facing. Friendly staff and pretty decent food. Swimming pool is clean and well maintained too. A very big lawn with lot of place for sport activities. The down point is the cost! Very expensive for a government run resort. Cost of room, room service and food is quite high. The facilities are good but not great for what you are paying. Good place to stay if you have your own vehicle. Don't forget to bargain on the tariff if you decide to stay here. Would surely recommend this resort.

We have spend our new year in pondicherry and we stayed in Ashok beach resort 2 night and 3 days. The good things about the resort is it is very
very big and there are lots of parking space , play area for kids, beautiful beach and very good staff.
The -ve point about this resort is the rooms. I have stayed in a deluxe room and the room is very old and the bathrooms are also not properly maintained. All the taps were leaking and the water was very salty.
The complimentary breakfast was having many varieties. The food is also good but overpriced.
If they maintain properly, this resort will be a very good place for vacations. Overall the experience was good.
