Avabodha is a place to simply be!

The greatest experience of Avabodha is to experience being with yourself, your loved ones, and your team

while wrapping yourselves in the serenity of the surroundings and the sounds of nature.

There is nothing more beautiful here than listening to the chirping birds, letting your eyes follow the squirrels,

amuse at a dog chasing the monkeys from afar, watch the peacocks, and gaze at the stars.


Avabodha is a place that nurtures your right and left brain, both.

While it is the perfect place to clear your head, create goals and reflect upon your life, it also nurtures your creativity

as you sit overlooking the majestic view, read books, write, do pottery or paint or simply sit in dhyan and meditate.


We have created our home in a way that once you’re here you wouldn't feel the need to go anywhere.

But to enhance your experience at Avabodha and spend your time here, we have a vast range of

curated in-house, personalized programs, and outdoor experiences for you to explore.

From individuals to families, from friends to organizations, we have something here for everyone!

We have a bookshelf with a few books for you to pick from, borrow, and read during your stay with us.

We also have a “Strangers Book Exchange” shelf. So if you have any books at home that you wish to give-away, as you are done reading, get them along and exchange them with books to take back home, left for you by other guests.
