Best and Unique Places to Stay in Pondicherry

Visiting the coastal city of Pondicherry is like stepping into another world. Along with modern buildings are older structures boasting lovely French colonial architecture and French street names that will have you believe you’re not really in India. You can find the best and unique places to stay in Pondicherry like you can spot the cherry on the cake. Colonized not just by the French but by the Dutch, British and Portuguese, this is a land of varied cultures, temples, churches, beaches, and eateries influenced by a range of cuisines.

There’s a lot to see and do from visiting the 300-year-old Immaculate Conception Cathedral – the cathedral mother church – to going on a food tour of European and south Indian cuisine. The French part of town is instantly recognizable with a promenade, cobbled roads and quaint cafes. You’ll enjoy the quiet and taking a walk through the streets is one of the best ways to spend the afternoon. As you head away from here and towards the newer part of town, the scene and ambience begin changing to a bustling south India.

Old and new don’t always mix but in Pondy, it creates a beautifully balanced world. It’s this uniqueness that has consistently ranked the town as one of the top destinations to visit in India. If you want to experience a taste of the past and still witness the energy of south India, this should be on your bucket list. It’s a place like no other and one can easily find the best and unique places for stay in Pondicherry.
