Now opened...La VILLA Pondicherry...

“A unique hotel in the old town of Pondicherry, refined yet surprising” - that was the challenge given to the architects of Villa Shanti, Tina Trigala and Yves Lesprit. They lived up to the challenge and how?… respecting the heritage of its colonial architecture they turned this 19th century manor into a boutique hotel, featuring six suites, a swimming pool and a restaurant.

The use of noble materials along with a distinctive sense of color and detail draws you into the atmosphere of poetic intimacy and non-ostentatious luxury of this exclusive villa hotel.

Time Travel...

What started as a work of passion has today turned into a Heritage transport Museum, spread across an area of over 90,000 sq ft, a first of its kind and scale in the country. On display are over 75 cars, a railway saloon, bullock carts, palanquins, and the works, - in short, an evolution on wheels.

Recently opened in the National Capital region the ‘evolution of wheels’ - is a work of evolution in itself.
For, it took an auto enthusiast over 20 meticulous years to collect, restore and maintain artefacts that many would dismiss as mere pieces of junk. Even the concept of a museum took over three years to take shape, owning to various issues.

The museum takes visitors on a roller-coaster ride-right from the advent of the wheel in India to the means of transportation we avail ourselves of today. Not to be missed.

Heritage train chugs along Himalayas

A 109-year-old British era steam engine, considered an engineering marvel, the locomotive KC 520 dating back to 1905 and boasting a rich history of 109 years once again chugged down the Kalka-Shimla heritage track between Shimla and Kathlighat. The one-way 22-km journey between these two stations, located on the Shimla-Kalka 2'6" gauge line (unusual for a narrow gauge mountain line rail line) that figures in UNESCO World Heritage site list, takes more than one hour.

You can now hire two or three coaches of the locomotive KC 520 train by paying one-time rent for a family holiday or for your official trips. The collective space of two or three coaches is enough to accommodate up to 40 passengers. The passengers will be served delectable food on board as per the hospitality service.

KC 520

We will be very pleased to help you and your guests in putting together a trip to India and it's neighbourhood.....please do write to us or call us.
