This beautiful colonial villa is located in the heart of Pondicherry's French Quarter, just 50 metres from the Bay of Bengal and a few steps from the famous Promenade. The decor and styling of the 18 spacious rooms reflect the French influence, and benefit from modern touches like air conditioning, tea and coffee maker and minibar. Every room has an en-suite bathroom with classic porcelain basins and baths.

The hotel's central location makes it ideal for exploring Pondicherry. The historic French Quarter is on your doorstep and hotel staff can equip you with a map for a walking tour, or you can explore by bike.  The Promenade and waterfront are just a short stroll away, and the shops of Mission Street are also within walking distance. Staff are happy to advise on local places of interest and will help you plan your stay.

Back at Palais de Mahe you can relax in the courtyard and enjoy a swim in the pool and a reviving cup of coffee and tasty snack at the poolside cafe. Indoors there's a cosy reading room and a bar where you can socialise with other travellers. The spa specialises in Ayurveda treatments as well as massages, to boost your health and well-being. Cuisine is an important part of any stay here. The chefs take their pick of the local produce which includes freshly-caught fish, to prepare traditional Indian meals and international dishes. The rooftop terrace is ideal for al fresco dining.
