2. Ocean Spray

Conceived as Pondicherry by the French and affectionately known as ‘Pondy’, the city has its conspicuous French connection. Away from the hustle-bustle of the metro, this quiet little town offers the peculiar mustard-yellow colonial heritage buildings, virgin beaches, a medley of cuisines, the quaint spiritual wave and alluring art.

Here, soaked in the whiff of the Bay of Bengal and stationed in the ripples of its own beautiful man-made lake, Ocean Spray grasps the enchantment and the intimacy in its own breath. Bonjour Bonheur Ocean Spray Resort showcases nature at its best.

The Majestic grandeur architecture overlooks the overwhelming swimming pool with the sound of the gushing cascades and the smouldering view of the sky. The interiors reflect the warmth of its aristocratic ambience. Villas with private swimming pools provide an exclusive composition.

One of its kind nightclubs quenches the thirst of the nightlife birds. The mesmerizing experience of candlelight dinner on the boat on the lake is just meant for those special romantic moments. Statuesque trees give an unmistakable view from the esplanade.
