The Dune describes itself as an ‘eco beach resort’, which doesn’t even nearly get close. This is, quite simply, one of south India’s hippest places to stay. One of our core values is our commitment to environmental issues, well-being and organic food. The resort provides unique learning experiences of different cultures including an understanding of local customs, beliefs and food.
Spread behind nearly a kilometre of golden sand, the site comprises an expanding crop of villas and rooms built in a wide range of styles using materials reclaimed from antique houses – with lots of inspiration from acclaimed architects and designers.
The colour schemes range from sparse and earthy to downright delirious. But everything feels lively and fun . . . and very Indian. Made with home-grown organic ingredients, the food is fresh and delicious; and there’s a large pool to play in if the surf’s too rough.
A quirky beachfront resort, close to atmospheric Pondicherry.
