Beautifully redone property in midst of Auroville.... We had a fantastic stay after two years again... Lovely pool with cashew grooves and amazing sea food which they have added recently make it a memorable lovely stay.... Recommended highly.... U will love it with friends and family

It's simply decorated with lots of statues and showpieces. All the buildings were coloured purple. Looks beautiful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. It's situated in a nice location as well. There were few nice cafes and restaurants around it. One thing I didn't like is even if we fixed the auto rickshaw price from the hotel to bus station still they overcharged. Just an advice, try not to make profit in every way. We travellers really don't appreciate it.

First, Very very poor food. No proper parking facility. None of the main door lock was working. It is a big no. No water bottles provided. If your trip is sight seeing of Pondicherry, then this not the right place to stay.

Horrible! We got rooms only after 4 PM after 4 hours wait at reception. We had senior citizens, infant, and kids with us, all went through a hard time in the hot and humid atmosphere. Rooms allotted to us were still dirty. Some taps were dry and few others were working randomly. No towels, water bottles, and glasses were given unless we went to the front desk at night and fought hard to get the necessary stuff. Rooms were full of mosquitos and we had to buy the mosquito repellents ourselves. No water bottle, tea or anything was given on the next day. Food served in the resort was yuck and a complete waste of money. None of our complaints were addressed to during the two days of hellish stay at the purple and finally, we got an ugly see off when I raised my concerns at the front desk. While checking in, the hotel staff has assured us some refund to compensate the late check-in to the rooms of pathetic conditions and without necessary sanitary stuff but when I asked for the same, the guy at the front desk kept ignoring and on my persistence he bluntly told me to go and claim the refund from yatra from where we had booked the rooms. when I raised my voice he called the security to thrash me. Thanks to my companions that we could return safely. A BIG NO to this hell called the purple resort in Pondicherry.

We had already stayed on beach side property for 2 days in Pondi and for last 2 days we stayed here. Auroville proximity is a plus. They have a swimming pool which is too small. One beautiful thing is you will find lots of Ganesha idols made in wood or stone. Many brass artifacts as well. The in-house boutique was clearing the stock. We purchased many artifacts and silk sarees at a very good deal.

Best part is it is near to Auroville and away from the city. Its a decent stay. They provide complimentary breakfast. I suggest to avoid Lunch and Dinner in the resort. Swimming pool is decent. Limited parking space.

Booked two nights stay in purple resort on Goibibo.The room was clean and well furnished.The common areas including swimming pool looked dirty n needs maintenance. There was no toiletories and kettle in the room. There was microwave oven in each room. Housekeeping service was very bad. Had to call them several times to clean the room. Food was good but breakfast buffet menu remains same everyday. The resort is located in Auroville and Auroville comes under Tamil Nadu and not Pondicherry.So alcohol is not available anywhere in Auroville. You have to travel at least 5kms to buy drinks.

Awesome experience along with good staff members. Especially yuvaraj manager is very kind and helpful person who helped in manyways when there is need. Very thankful for allowing the birthday party as planned. Thank you so much for the help.

Firstly, it's not a resort, but a hotel. The good part is that its very near to Auroville area. a decent stay. Food options in the hotel restaurant are local , they need to add more flavors to their menu. Need to improve hotel management as well. Rooms are good with a view of the forest in the Auroville area.
