Pondicherry is the French territory. We had a very comfortable stay here in a very nice hotel. Christine treated us to an excellent meal in a fancy Frenchish restaurant. Beef steak and beer were on the menu here. We promenaded on the beach front avenue, closed to traffic at night. No Lycra clad yoga princesses but a few lectures on virtue and yoga. I did not ...

    The facilities are excellent, the rennovation excellent, woodwork wonderful., and management very professional. Mainly lacking was the wait staff of the food service - they need quite a bit more training for serving the many hundreds and thousands of western tourists and educated Indians who will come. Some professional trainers from the Neemrana Group of hotels could do this very well. The menu too could use some updating especially for westerners to understand. All of this caused no problems for our group of 4, who are well used to a wide variety of service in India.
