De L'Orient

Pondicherry boasts stunning buildings reflecting its French colonial past, and Hotel De L'Orient offers a selection of suites in one of the old mansion houses.


De L'Orient is a charming heritage hotel with 14 rooms and two suites, all with en suite bathrooms. Built in an 18th century house with distinct heritage character and vintage furnishings. There is a bar and restaurant.


Located in the French quarter of Pondicherry, three hours south of Chennai on the south eastern coast of India.


There are some fascinating temples to be visited in this area like Perumal and Chidambaram. The French quarter, Botanical Gardens, Anglo French Textile Museum, Aurobido Ashram and Gingee are all worth visiting during your stay in Pondicherry.

Why we like it

Probably the most interesting and characterful place to stay in Pondicherry.
