The Dune
Near Pondicherry
The Dune is a 35-acre eco-friendly beach hotel with 30 villas and 20 rooms, fusing modern and traditional architecture, and 700m of sea front. Within the estate is a 7-acre farm where crops such as vegetables, fruits, pulses and rice are produced. The Dune is also the base for AIR (Artists In Residence), a programme providing work studios for Artists from all around the world.

The accommodations are sparsely spread and discreetly hidden over 30 acres. Each one is unique and ranges from ones for couples to ones for families or friends with lounge and private gardens. To reduce the impact on the environment, they are partly built using reclaimed building material from South Indian Colonial houses, Chettinad palaces and Kerala plantersí mansions. They are fully equipped with solar hot water system, low consumption bulbs and waste water treatment plant.

Food is mostly made-to-order, using fresh organic products as much as possible. By the beach, next to the swimming pool, you can enjoy fresh seafood cooked as per your choice in the grill.

The Paradise Spa here provides you with highly effective therapies from around the world, with a range of ancient healing methods as well as the latest alternative systems of medicine.
