About Joy Community Guest House - Auroville Foundation

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. Our place has a large variety of accommodation styles to meet the needs and wishes of each and every guest. We have a peculiar community atmosphere and we are immersed in nature, which here is characterized by the tropical dry evergreen forest and the most colorful birds. At the same time, we are located in the very center of Auroville. 

Our place is perfect for a diverse stay as you can relax in a hammock in the garden or be active and do any practice in our beautiful yoga hall or help in our organic vegetable garden. For those who are interested and stay long enough, we are also happy to share our experience here and some of the history and complexities of Auroville: an intentional community in the making, aspiring for unity in diversity, yet far from the dream in the current reality.

Accommodation Information

Our guesthouse has a large variety of accommodation styles to meet the needs and wishes of each and every guest. Our basic accommodation facilities are mainly made of wood and bamboo and have a traditional coconut roof; they are  more suitable for guests on a budget or looking for a rustic adventure. Our standard (shared bathroom) and comfort (attached bathroom) accommodation facilities are very diverse, but they all have in common a beautiful design; they are more suitable for guests who prefer a comfortable lodging or a tranquil experience.

All types of accommodations are equipped with fan, electricity, and power back-up for lights only in every accommodation type & for fans as well in comfort rooms only. Note that power-cuts in Tamil Nadu are a daily occurrence. All the showers (shared or private) are connected to a solar heater that provides hot water all-year round, even during monsoon and in the night thanks to the electric back-up. We have a well-equipped common kitchen  that is available for guests use. Please bring your own flashlight, towels, 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.
