All Neemrana properties are non-hotel Hotels, because they were originally built for other purposes. Every effort has been made to maintain the old charm of Hotel de l’Orient while ensuring more than the basic comforts that have come to be associated with the changes in lifestyle since the 18th century. There are many places to visit in Pondicherry and a range of local excursions that help our guests unwind and rediscover themselves. Nothing about the Neemrana experience is ordinary. Plan a day trip to Auroville. Stroll to the Promenade and enjoy the sea breeze. Watch the stars overhead and the sea below. Savour a French mansion full of Indian warmth. The Hotel de l’Orient is in close proximity to the Aurobindo Ashram and ancient historical churches which are meaningful places to visit in Pondicherry. Hotel de l’Orient also hosts anniversaries, birthdays and other memorable occasions.
