we stayed at Ashok Beach Resort with my family on April 2, 2015. The rooms are quite spacious and good. all rooms are beach facing.
only minus point is they close the beach side gate by 6PM. That is too early
The restaurant serves tasty food. nice place and ambience too
worth the stay

I found this place when I was browsing the internet for a weekend getaway from Chennai along with my family just one day in advance. Since we had a very
short time, we were clueless of which hotel to choose for our short one night holiday. Finally I came across ‘The Ashok - Beach Resort’. As we travelled with kids, we loved it so much and felt it as a perfect value for money for the 22 hours we spent there.
PROS: ‘The Ashok’ is a wonderful piece of architecture and clubbed with a huge empty/green space which gives it an exclusiveness which most resorts lack. The check-in process was very simple. The staff at the resort were very well mannered both at the front office, housekeeping, restaurant, etc.. We stayed in a deluxe room on the first floor which had an exclusive balcony facing the beach as well as the huge lawn area. We as a family enjoyed our stay here. The private beach flanking the resort was good too, early in the morning we loved going there and watching the fishermen pulling out their catch. The swimming pool was very clean and well maintained. We had both dinner and the breakfast for the subsequent day at ‘The Pondy’ restaurant. The taste and quality of the food was awesome.
CONS: Though the rooms are very well renovated and neatly maintained, the first impression which is the reception and lobby area needs renovation. The rest rooms at the lobby area were closed for renovation. The balcony in the first floor rooms are not safe for people staying with kids. The hotel management needs to look into this ASAP a it’s a safety threat.
SUGGESTIONS: There is so much of empty area in the resort, which could be very well utilized to develop infrastructure for some outdoor activities/games. A kid’s play area in the resort would be an added bonus.
Overall, this resort is a great place to stay and a perfect choice for a quiet relaxing vacation away from the madness of city life.

I visited this hotel in Jan with my wife and the very first experience of the lobby told me that it was not a value for money. I did not find it to be a place to have a lovely time. Atleast not for a couple for sure. Yes, they served good food.

Pathetic run down property by ITDC. Will not fit in below 45 age group. Booked an Sea Facing Cottage - checked out in 1 hr. NO one care a dame about it. Atrocious Hotel in this competitive leisure destination Pondicherry . Pls do not get fascinated by the on line rates.
