MAISON PERUMAL, Pondicherry [Puducherry]
Maison Perumal is a tasteful blend of old-world Tamil and French architectural styles. Verandahs and sit out areas speak of the Tamil heritage while the arched windows and stylized colonnades reflect their French colonial ancestry.
The materials are typically local, with cool Cuduppah stone underfoot and teak furniture lending its special richness. The only sign of modernity is the air-conditioner humming unobtrusively in the background.
Maison Perumal’s dining area is a cool, airy haven where you can relax and find a moment of quiet whenever you like. The walls are a rotated gallery space with a selection of canvases, part of our initiative to promote work by local artists.
10 rooms of quiet elegance, of which two are twin rooms. All rooms air-conditioned.
A choice of local and international dishes, emphsising local produce with a French accent.
