This is a large self-standing, studio-bedroom with a dome shaped roof and excellent natural ventilation on all four sides. Set in a beautiful garden with a large fish pond, it provides a tranquil, rejuvenating getaway from busy city life. A private place to spend quality time with family and friends. (Free for accompanying child under 10 years.)

Skandavan's micro climate is always a few degrees cooler than Pondicherry.

The space
The Lotus Studio is surrounded by greenery, has a dome shaped roof, is naturally cool and ventilated on all four sides.
It has a queen sized double bed, and a long window ledge which can accommodate a third bed (no extra charge for children).
There is an attached bathroom with open to sky shower and a hot geyser. Private garden area with seating.
A couple of restaurants in the vicinity will home-deliver.
We provide a limited breakfast menu between 8.30 and 9.30 am.
Please note if you leave your doors and windows open too long, you may have frogs and geccos pop in. (If you have phobias about wildlife, do consider this!)

Where you’ll be

Auroville, Tamil Nadu, India

Auroville's Visitors Centre is approximately 4 kms from Skandavan and the nearest general provision shops in the Edayanchavadi Village are less than 2 kms from us.

Auroville's Welcome Cafe with wi-fi internet is 2.3 kms away and about a 30 min walk.

The Aroma Gardens opposite the Welcome Cafe gate has a sports facility with a swimming pool open to the public. (It is inset in the complex so you need some transport to find it.)

Auroville's Botanical Garden is a little over half a kilometer away and well worth visiting.

Pondicherry airport (with direct flights from Bangalore) is 2 kms away. The route to the airport from us is also a shortcut to Pondicherry ( White Town is app. 7 kms away by this road).

I am a dancer/ author/ yoga practitioner and was a thorough-bred city person till Auroville and Skandavan happened. While these roles continue, the real focus has shifted to discovering life's mysteries. I live with husband Michael, two loving dogs, a shy cat, two fish ponds and a brood of sassy chicken. Having been a guest in many parts of the world, it is great to welcome the world here now!

During your stay

Please feel free to contact us if you need anything at all. Michael and I are both very much here.

We also have three very nice helpers Mala, Kamala and Thatha who come for the day. Kamala is available to clean your bedroom from 9 to 10 am. If your room is unoccupied, she has instructions to enter and sweep your floor. If you do not want her to do this let us know. (Incase you want to do this yourself at another time, there is a broom in the Cottage electric room.)

Rakesh is the watchman, and can let you in easily when you are having a late night out. Please keep his phone number with you. His wife Kalpana will cook lunch/dinner for you on request.
