Tanto far Beach Stay & Review- When you think of Pondicherry, you feel like you are in a dream. A beautiful dream which is full of clean sandy beaches laid back colorful streets and European architecture.
A place which has it’s own mood, a rhythm. The cafes of Pondicherry is what makes it the best quick holiday destination from Bangalore. Readout my experience of staying in Pondicherry & our stay in Tanto far beach retreat.
You can get a variety of food here, and it can satisfy all the different kinds of taste buds. We visited Pondicherry for our babymoon last week. We planned to go by road as the road trip was utterly comfortable, and clean toilets for ladies were quickly accessible throughout this route.
We have already visited Pondicherry in the past, so we knew where we have to stay as we only wanted to relax and enjoy the vitamin Sea. My husband also did not get a chance to travel more for the last many months, and he was also in a full relaxing kind of vacation mood.
OUR STAY IN PONDICHERRY
We selected the Tanto Far Beach guest house for our comfortable and memorable stay. A few of the many reasons for the same were houses/villa with a view of the sea, private beach, chlorine-free saltwater swimming pool, garbage-free beach with showers, an Italian restaurant with amazing and exquisite food, spa, rooms with Kitchen.
The best thing about our stay was the beautiful sunrises which we were witnessing from the hall. We did not have to go anywhere or step out of our stay to see the same.
Every morning, we were sipping ourselves self-made cup of tea/coffee and enjoying the beautiful view. Our rooms were on the 1st floor, which had given us an added advantage.
The villa which we have chosen to stay is in the middle of beautiful palm trees, coconut trees, and bougainvilleas and direct and unhindered view of the mighty sea due to which we were able to witness hundreds of butterflies altogether at once during the day time. The squirrels and chirping of the birds were a bonus.
WHAT ABOUT LOCATION?
It is a fantastic location if you prefer a laidback place to chill. It has a decent pool and a private beach. They have an in-house kitchen also, which will be open from 8.30 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition to that, there is swiggy so you can almost get all the food you need.
So many eateries are available within a range of 5 kilometers, which you can easily explore. We have taken all our meals in different food joints just for the sake of trying it all.
