Maison Perumal

Hotel Maison Perumal is a boutique hotel located in Pondicherry's Tamil Quarter. The heritage building features a Franco-Tamil design renowned for its use of space, ventilated colonnades, and doorways and windows adorned with stained glass.


Hotel Maison Perumal lies in the heart of Pondicherry, a town with a distinct French colonial past, approximately 4 hours drive south from Chennai, on the south-east coast of India.


The renovated manor house has 10 rooms covering the two upper storeys. Each room is decorated in a unique way reflecting Franco-Tamil design showcased everywhere around Pondicherry. There were modern amenities incorporated into the rooms during the restoration which include air-conditioning, Wifi access, television and ensuite bathrooms.


There is so much to see in Pondicherry but Hotel Maison Perumal can offer you cooking lessons, a Kolam art lesson, a tour of the art galleries and antique shops that abound here. 

Why we like it

Authentic, characterful, boutique.
