Vatika Guest House was the perfect place to land when visiting India for the first time. The warm, welcoming atmosphere, homecooked meals, clean, comfortable room and private bath and shower gave us everything we needed to explore and get oriented. The location couldn't be better: just a short walk to the prom, the ashram and the ayurvedic hospital is right around the corner offering amazing therapeutic treatments. Datta, the proprietress, also has a small boutique on the ground floor with apparel and beautiful artwork. Don't miss the rooftop for a 360 view of Pondicherry! We look forward to our next stay at Vatika Guesthouse. Thank you Datta!
