Over a period of time Club Mahindra Pondicherry has become a family favorite of sorts. The last we were here was before the pandemic. Starting from the airport where we had a cab pick us up, our fun started. The weather was beautiful, less hot by Pondicherry standards. Reaching this particular resort always makes me feel go AAH!! It is lovely.
So lush, green, vast, sounds of birds, the sea, the buzz of activities and masked faces (Covid protocols firmly in place, thumbs up), and feeling the sea air! So magical. Mum had a fall and had hurt her leg and could not have much movement. Everything needed to be careful and slow. Checking in was a breeze thanks to members there. After we enjoyed our welcome drink, we made our way to the appointed studio apt.
I really like the sustainable design of the resort rooms, made with natural and native materials. Another reason why this resort is a favorite of mine. It is well kept, neat and clean. Fixings for coffee/tea were always available and refilled. So was the bathroom. Kudos to the housekeeping team who responded to all of our requests swiftly Our visit to the restaurant brought us in touch with another familiar face. The brewmaster and expert Mr. Srinivas - still going strong with his amazing, one-of-a-kind and addictive filter coffee. Our breakfasts, lunch /dinners at the restaurants were wonderful experiences with good food, ambiance plus prompt and courteous service.
Lots of fun activities throughout the day and chef Raghava’s cooking lesson was good. Enjoyed. We also celebrated mum's birthday! This was a complimentary thingie by the resort. Thanks. She was really touched. This is the stuff holidays are made of. As we were checking out, we were already making plans to return here the following year for a cut. copy. paste, and more.
