The menu of French and Indian specialties is built around the freshest natural ingredients: organic vegetables from the hotel's own garden; freshly caught fish; cured ham, pâté and cheeses we produce ourselves (we have a dairy room, cold rooms and a large cellar in the hotel).

The kitchen opens on to the dining room, so guests can watch as fish and meat are grilled to order over a wood fire.

The chef designs the day's menu according to his inspiration or plans it around today's best finds from the market (Pondicherry boasts one of the finest open-air markets in all of southern India).


The Conference hall at Hotel Mango Hill can be used for corporate get together, small parties or organized group activity. Located on the second floor, with air conditioning, it offers an ideal environment for holding different events.

Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine native to the Indian Subcontinent, a natural “science of life” that aims to promote balance and wellness in both mind and body. A true Ayurvedic treatment is a lengthy process targeting all three dimensions of human life: body, mind and soul.

Traditional MARMA

Traditional SIDDHA MARMA

Siddha medicine is the ancient method practiced since time immemorial in the Dravidian communities of South India.


Holistic purification to help the body reach the proper balance of vata, pitta and kapha. Five types of treatments are offered, lasting from 15 to 41 days.

A special slimming program, which includes massage with herbal powders and oils, targeted exercises and Ayurvedic massage.



Swimming-pool timings from 9am to 6pm.

MANGO Hill’s pool (25m by 12) is by far the most beautiful in the region: rimless water surrounded by a spacious teak deck, a flowering cashew tree on a little island in the middle, jet massage nozzles, a shaded basin where children can play in total safety, and inviting lounge chairs straight from the decks of the legendary cruise ship “Le France”… an idyllic setting for savoring the balmy climate of the Coromandel coast.

Paying guests not staying at the hotel are also welcome to spend a leisurely afternoon at the pool.
