Guest House Information
We run a naturally simple, yet very beautiful and clean guesthouse for those people seeking for a real experience in Auroville, instead of staying in the usual tourist accommodation. We have a peculiar community atmosphere and we are immersed in nature, which here is characterized by the tropical evergreen dry forest and the most colorful birds. At the same time, we are located in the very center of Auroville, only a few hundred meters from the Matrimandir, the Visitor’s Center, the Town Hall and the Solar Kitchen.
We have a well-equipped common kitchen, a open lounge and several hammocks in our gardens that are available for guests use. Please bring your own flashlight, towel, toilet paper, soap, etc. We have lockers available for guests staying in shared accommodation, but bring your own lock. We are an alcohol and drug free campus, while smoking cigarettes is allowed only in a dedicated area.
Included in your stay: free low speed WiFi internet, free yoga hall and mat use (out of class time), drinking water, some common kitchen items, taxes and Auroville guest contribution. We provide bed-sheets, blankets and bed mosquito nets for all types of accommodation. Not included in your stay: laundry, food, and any class happening in our multipurpose hall.
We have a 2-nights minimum stay for last minute reservations, 4-nights minimum stay for reservation requested less than 1 month in advance, and a 7-nights minimum stay for reservations requested more than 1 month in advance. Our office hours are from 9 am to 12 pm and 2 pm to 4:30 pm Monday to Saturday, and we are closed on Sunday.
Check-in time is from 2 pm onward and check-out time is up to 11 am. In case you cannot arrive to Auroville within office hours (9 am to 12 pm and 1.30 to 4.30 pm), please let us know in advance and book your taxi exclusively with Auroville taxi services as outsiders are not always allowed inside and they will certainly get lost in our forest at night.
