It was a Thursday morning when we (I and my wife) reached Zest Big beach resort, though reaching it is a bit tough as its 13 kms from the main city of pondicherry, but the auto took 200 Rs and I thought that was OK. And as we enter Zest, we are pleased to see a small decorative pool filled with leaves and petals. The reception is good and the guys give us a welcome drink.
We are escorted to the room by a trainee and he is a courteous guy. We were delighted to see the room and its ambience and the simplicity was also appealing. The lighting and the Air conditioner were very good.
The good thing about the hotel were, the pool bar, the activities especially the catamaran ride , the huge expanse of natural forest kind of environment where you can walk along trails and enjoy the natural environs. The enthusiastic staff and the abundance of slings to lie around.
The lackings were, slow room service response, the uber expensive restaurant and the distance from the city, you would have to shell out a good amount of money if you dont have your own conveyance if you even want to go to visit some of the well known places in the city.
All in all we had a pleasant stay and we loved the beach it was neat and clean , though you need to avoid it in the evenings and too early morning, in the evening because of the high tidals and in the early morning due to drunk local fishermen. But we enjoyed ourselves a lot in the Zest big beach , pondicherry.
