When we created the Red Lotus, we had you – our guests – in mind. We wanted to create a place in a perfect location, with young and hip rooms, yet romantic and comfortable, with a roof terrace lounge to indulge your taste buds and fill your evenings. All of it at an affordable rate and with that extra touch of personal attention you only get when you stay with friends – a perfect recipe to pamper you and create a background for unforgettable memories in Pondicherry.

The old merchant house in Vietnamese style is indeed a landmark with its red doors and windows. As you enter through the majestic double doors on the ground floor you step from the liveliness of the city into peaceful tranquility. You are situated in the center of Pondicherry’s Heritage Town - just two minutes walk from the famous Sri Aurobindo Ashram and 5 minutes from the Beach Promenade. All places of interest are in walkable distance and the countless boutiques in the little streets around the guesthouse invite for a stroll.

The Red Lotus itself is a medley of colourful asian design. Several artists have given each room a special flair and atmosphere. Luxurious Bollywood rooms, Japanese Bamboo rooms, meditative Zen rooms… feel free to choose your own world in this artistic Boutique Guesthouse. Our spacious bedrooms are on the 1st and 2nd floor, all with private bathroom, hot water, air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi. We offer double or twin beds and a sofa which can be converted into an extra bed if needed. Perfect flexibility whether you travel as a couple, with family or just as friends.

Come and enjoy the great feeling of holidays!
