Maison Perumal, Pondicherry

Maison Perumal, the new venture of CGH Earth Hotels, is an amalgam of the Best of French and Indian styles. Even the name is indicative of the coming together of the two cultures. Situated in the Tamil Quarter of Pondicherry, the old house gets its name from Rue Perumal Kovil, the street that it is situated on, and is one of the rare heritage structures that has been restored in this quarter.

The maison’s traditional Tamil personality comes through in its two courtyards, the “Thalavaram“ (Street Verandah) and the “Thinnai“ (Verandah around the house). The fluted plaster and arched windows give it a French charm. With just ten rooms, Maison Perumal has a much unperturbed feel with its small staff managing the place like a house.


• 10 well appointed rooms


Maison Perumal serves Creole cuisine, which is the typical amalgamation of French and Tamil flavours. Food is prepared and served with homely warmth. So, you could probably take a tip or two from the chef, who will explain the spread at the table.
