Lonely Planet review
Engaging the principles of vastu, an Indian architectural science promoting tranquility through natural materials and asymmetrical layouts (similar to feng shui), this glorified backpackers has quaint, simple rooms. Wooden floors, patterned bedspreads and crafted copper bowls highlight the spaces.

Vastu is a traditional Indian design based on the alignment of the five basic elements: Earth (Bhumi), Water (Jala), Air (Vayu), Fire (Agni) and Space (Akasha). Incorporating nature's elements leads to a more balanced and restful environment that provides more energy. Our architecture, layout and service strive to pamper body, mind, and soul.
