Bangalore is a busy city, where you struggle with traffic, population, pollution and barely manage to get through each day. As a principle, I always take a break whenever it becomes too hectic, last month when Bangalore city started to take its toll on me, I slyly sneaked an escapade to a beautiful place called, Pondicherry.

I went to Pondicherry on a weekend and at stayed at one of the most beautiful resorts – Dune Ecovillage & Spa. Imagine a place, where you are all alone, with no one to disturb you, and you get to stay in the lap of nature quite literally! Where you can actually hear the sea waves crashing at the shore, in your room, where you are actually able to cut off from the whole world and spend your time in peace. Like me, if you like to just take a break from life and chill, then Dune Ecovillage & Spa is the place for you. It has its own private beach, where you can run miles, or just lie sunbathing at the shore. Be it their pool, or their private villas I just fell in love with the place!

After lazying around for a day at the resort, I finally went out to explore the town on the second day, and as expected, it was truly some experience! Even though a U.T and full of beaches, Pondi is nothing like Goa, where you see pubs lined up at every nook and corner. We explored quite a bit on our cute little scooter, (which we rented from the Merchant street at 1100/- for two days) before we discovered some of the most beautiful spots where you can go, grab a drink and just chill. One of such places is Le Club, this tiny little place, done up with pretty little, lights, will definitely remind you of Goa, and the legacy that Portuguese have left behind in terms of art and infrastructure. When here, don’t forget to treat yourself to a nice glass of wine, and some pizza, before go out exploring the town again. In the evening, it might be a good idea to explore other pubs like  Toxic and L’Aqua.

Last but not the least, do not forget to spend some time taking a quiet stroll by the Paradise beach. Beautiful and tranquil, you’ll fall in love with the beauty of the place!
