Accommodation



Guest Houses

The guest houses affiliated with Sri Aurobindo Society aspire to provide a conducive spiritual atmosphere. The guest houses are located very close to the Ashram and beach. Due to high number of requests (especially during the significant Ashram dates), we recommend making early reservations.

Common amenities and rules

  • Special passes are provided by the guest houses to visit the Ashram main building which houses Sri Aurobindo and Mother’s Samadhi from 5 am to 11 pm are made available on request at the reception.
  • Visitors are welcome to join the evening collective meditation at the Ashram main building on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
  • Smoking, non-vegetarian food, alcohol and pets are NOT permitted
  • Upon arrival, Indian nationals must present their ID at the reception desk. Foreign nationals and NRIs (Non-resident Indians) must present their passport & Visa at the reception to fill out the mandatory Foreigner’s Registration Arrival Report (Form ‘C’).
  • Needless to say, the Guest house rules are to be followed strictly as we wish to retain a quiet and spiritual atmosphere for all guests and visitors.

Online reservations are not available as yet. Please communicate directly with the guest house you are interested in either via email or by phone.
