This spacious studio bedroom is self-standing, has a dome-shaped roof, and has good natural ventilation coming from all four sides. It offers a peaceful, rejuvenating escape from the hectic daily life, situated in a lovely garden with a sizable fish pond. A quiet location where you can enjoy a relaxing time with your friends and family.

The microclimate of Skandavan is consistently a few degrees colder than Pondicherry. The Lotus Studio is naturally cool and well-ventilated on all four sides, with a dome-shaped top and lush surroundings all around.

It features a long window ledge that can hold a third bed in addition to a queen-sized double bed. Additionally, there is a hot geyser and an open-to-sky shower are features of the adjoining bathroom. Moreover, the private garden space is furnished with chairs and a few local eateries provide home delivery services.

Although there is plenty of space for visitors to explore the garden, many sections are off-limits. In the home dance studio, the host provides private yoga sessions and consultations on your current practice upon request.
