Accommodation

Given below are the details of guest houses maintained by the Society. Since the guest houses are part of the Society’s aspiration to provide a physically and psychologically positive atmosphere to all, the visitors are expected to abide strictly by the rules and regulations of the respective guesthouses.

Charges to the guest houses vary according to the available amenities. Due to high demand (especially during the significant dates / darshan days), we recommend making early reservations.

Facilities common to SAS guest houses:
  • Special passes 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.
  • Visitors are welcome to join the evening collective meditation at the Ashram main building on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
  • The Ashram has a community dining facility, for which limited number of Dining Coupons will be issued from the Bureau Central. Those who are staying in the guesthouse, mainly for Ashram-related purposes, are eligible to apply for this. Further details can be obtained from the Guesthouse Manager.
  • Those staying for longer periods can take up work offering in the Ashram.

Smoking, non-vegetarian food (eggs are an exception), alcohol and pets are NOT allowed inside any of the SAS guest houses.

Please note: 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’).

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