We stayed in Blue room, which was spacious, true to its "BLUE" color theme. Rameshwarji was very helpful. Private pool looked awesome, although we couldn't enjoy it considering my husband wanted to soak in sea water . One suggestion is if a bigger name plate can be installed then…

Mantra was nothing less than a paradise. The bungalow has a lot of rooms, however my personal favorite was the Lotus room - it had a small patio with a stunning view. The house is perfect if you are looking for a cosy home-stay and not something too commercial. Kakoli has a keen …

Its a picturesque cottage tucked in between buildings, in a residential colony. You almost step into a different era the moment you walk in the gates. Its a beautiful cottage and very tastefully done up, keeping in mind all possible comforts for the guest.. The pool is the best a…

Mantra is one of the places that one must choose when you go to cities like Pondicherry. Slightly away ( a km) from the hustle-bustle of tourists gathering spots, close to the beach, set amongst the short lanes of fisherman colony, this place has a unique homely feeling.. The roo…

Pics don't do justice to the beauty of Mantra. I think I could sense Kakoli's design instinct in everything at Mantra. Extremely calm, green, and well maintained, Mantra deserves more time to experience it fully. I totally lacked time having just 26 hours in Pondicherry, but for …

Thanks for your warm and wonderful review Deepak. We have noted your information about auto fares from the bus stand and will inform guests in future that Autos should charge Rs.75/--Rs.100/- for that distance. We look forward to having you back. Yes...most of our guests at MANTRA hire self-drive scooters or bicycles which we can help with.

We had a nice two night stay in Kakoli's beautiful Mantra property. The property in itself is very beautiful and well-maintained. The rooms are cozy and nicely done up. The garden area is perfect for a lazy afternoon coffee and book session. The pool area is great and very aesthe…

Hi Pallav, thank you for your valuable feedback, specially regarding breakfast. We provide toast with buttr and jam, eggs, muesli with milk and bananas and tea and coffee for breakfast at MANTRA. Based on your feedback we have rolled the price back to Rs.200/- per head. Regarding the location, Vaithikuppam is an urban village very much within Pondicherry municipality area. We hardly have any power cuts here and the municipality collects garbage and keeps the roads clean. There are no open drains. This area is just a few minutes from the Promenade and the Aurobindo ashram and many educated locals live in this area in high rise buildings along with local fishermen in small houses. This is what makes this place so interesting and vibrant. But I understand that this may not be everyone's cup of tea hence am grateful that reviews like yours highlight this issue which then helps others make an informed decision. So thank you once again. Details about this area is in our website related to MANTRA Pondicherry, for those who wish to know more.
