Auro Ba Cottage
Reviewed 20 January 2014

We, group 5 people (3 Boys + 2 Girls), visited Pondicherry in Jan '14. We stayed in Auro Ba Cottage (google search result).
This is a small cottage located near Auroville Beach. It is 8.3 KM from railway station. But if you go for rental bikes (which you should-triples the fun), that part is not a problem.

The place is very near the beach (3 min walk), and pretty quiet
Great rooms(read cottages)
Clean Room
Nearby restaurant - (you can order here also, they brings the food from the rest. only)


If you are visiting in Summer, keep a good-knight oil, (avoid coil, or anything that cause fire - or use cautiously)
Fan speed is not good. (but in Jan - who needs it)



You have to give a advance amount via transfer.

Reviewed 24 August 2012

We (a group of friends and I) happen to visit Puducherry in the month of April 2012. While deciding on where to stay, a friend suggested - Auro Ba Cottage. I called up the caretaker-owner of the place and booked two cottages. Now about the place - Auro Ba is a small hotel located near the auroville beach. It has a number of huts/shacks what they call as cottages. The cottage that could house 4 people had a balcony while the one that could only house 2 people had no balcony and was suffocating. The place (cottages and the attached bathroom) were clean and had all basic amenities - one fan, tv, enought light etc.

Why to choose -

It's very near to Auroville Beach, just a 5 min walk. If you are looking for spending your entire time out, you can.
It gives you the real experience of staying in a cottage - the hut feel, thatched roofs etc.
Cheap (1000 for a cottage/day - that's what we bargained to)and cordial service.
They serve food - actually order from a nearby place.
Clean Rooms and Washrooms.

Why not to choose -

Planning a trip in summers or late summers - No No to Auro Ba Cottage. I had a mixed experience.
The light fluctuates a lot, and you can actually count the rotation per minute that the fan makes. (No wind + Mosquitoes + Suffocation) - can blame the weather as well as the closed cottage.
It becomes humid and suffocating inside the small cottage - just under the sun.

Room Tip: Note: Booking is done by paying some amount via transfer. The contact number of owner is +91 9751396...
