35 Crores ZEST Big Beach resort in Puducherry by MHRIL

Despite the fact that Puducherry is a small town, it is needless to say about the ever increasing the numbers of hotels and resorts, both in the host of the town as well as in the outskirts. The geographical and cultural advantages of Puducherry have lured many recreational & hotel businesses.

I was just trying to list few hotels in the Union Territory but I ended with Hotel Mass, Hotel Anandha Inn, Annamalai International, Hotel De L'Orient, Villa Helena, Le Dupleix, Promenade, Soorya International, The Dune Beach Resort, St. James Court Beach Resort, Kailash Beach Resort…..I too thought I have listed all but my crazy little grey cells went on bombarding with new hotels……JAYARAM HOTEL, Hotel Surguru, Hotel Ellora, Hotel Ram International, Yatri Nivas, Sea Side Guest House, Hotel Felix, Calve Heritage Hotel, Banyan Beach Resort, Kailash Beach Resort, Devaki Guest House, Patricia Coloniale Guest House, Hotel Sunway, Hotel Ginger Ginger Puducherry, Aurodhan, Executive Inn, French Guest House, Villa Labourdonnais, Shree Sairam……..pardon me for the killer-length list, I am completely helpless (For God sake, oh I stopped here!). Final one is 35 Crores project Zest Big Beach by Mahindra Holidays & Resorts India Limited which is inaugurated by Chief Minister of the Union Territory of Puducherry, Thiru N.Rangasamy and Union Minister for Tourism, Smt. Ambika Soni.

Mr. Arun Nanda, Chairman, MHRIL said, “As a dominant player in the leisure hospitality business, we offer a variety of holiday destinations to augment holidaying choices for our members. Zest encapsulates our aim of providing unique and innovative holiday experiences to our members. The Zest Big Beach Resort, Puducherry makes short getaways a reality for young urban customers.”

Mr. Ramesh Ramanathan, Managing Director, MHRIL said, “We have always prided ourselves on offering innovative holiday experiences to our members. Our ZEST signature Big Beach Resort is one such offering in this direction and is another feather in our cap. The Big Beach resort has 125 rooms spread over 24 acres along a pristine beach. ZEST resorts are designed to bring unique and differentiated holiday experiences to young urban families. Zest Big Beach, therefore, is cohesive with this philosophy.”

Zest Big Beach, Puducherry is a seaside beach resort located at 16 km from Pondicherry, off Cuddalore road. It is the biggest resort in Pondicherry, spanning a whooping 24 acres with a spectacular beach front and has 83 contemporarily designed rooms.

Here are the lines from the zest main official site “From being a Roman colony to a French colony and now a charming place that’s a great getaway, Puducherry is the reality to human beings’ dream of paradise. Where else can you taste a French dish served with South Indian chutney? If you thought that Puducherry was all about the serene atmosphere, Auroville and the ashram then you haven’t seen the Bigger Picture yet! Welcome to Zest @ Big Beach,Puducherry.
