The experience of my stay in Ashok beach resort was the best one can desire of. The green lawn with some play area, view of the east coast sea beach, small trees with birds, swimming pool all made our stay pleasant and memorable. The rooms were neat and clean and the food was also of good quality.

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.

We discovered this hotel with Mr S. Sekar, the manager. We have been very surprised to see a so nice place on the beach. The hotel has been totally renovated,
and it is managed by the government. The garden is nice and the swimming pool is of good quality.
The food is good and the staff is quite nice.
You need a car from Pondichery. The TO can easily propose this place to avoid the busy city centerand to be in coonnection with the nature and especially the beach

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.
