About the Place: The place has been there since the magnificent Auroville's inception. Shranga is all about how small minor details comes together to form a piece of Art itself, from how the every rooms looks elegant, well thought, and at the same time is infused with art and vibrant colors. Definitely worth your time and money. About Our Stay: We had reserved the rooms in advance, one family (room for 5) and another room for 2. The breakfast is part of the package, catering both continental and southern flavors. Do note they provide both breakfast and dinner. The rooms they provided was unlike any we have ever been too, simply because it had an influence of southern India at its exterior and contemporary minimalist room inside. Do remember the rooms are very well thought. The management head took the effort to tell us about them, the place, also the brilliant Auroville. Brilliant place for a holiday. A definite for creative heads.
It was a belated holiday weekend plan, and a few of us decided to head out to Auroville for a short escape from our clockwork lives. Ms. C was tasked with the responsibility of figuring out a place to stay & amongst the 50 odd guest-houses she glanced upon in the Auroville guesthouses. Org page, Sharanga was her first choice. And that is how we landed up there, after getting slightly lost in Auroville. If you are looking for materialistic luxury, then I'd advise you to stop reading this review now. But if the kind of luxury you seek is a wholistic, spiritual one- then this is exactly where you must head. And I will give you 5 reasons why: 1. The guest house is housed on what used to be a farm, so the many acres of land are now covered with lush green vegetation, and gives an impression of a wild, yet welcoming forest. I recommend a small walk around to make some interesting discoveries about your habitat. 2. The people are grounded, happy and courteous. They have this quality about them, they smile easily and even though they are professional, there is a warmth about their approach, that warms you up to them. 3. The furniture & decor is an eclectic pot-pourri. Nothing is similar anywhere. You may find Attangudi tiles, 4 poster beds, antique mirrors, open wooden shelves, mud seats, white curtains, cane & bamboo furniture lending your room an amazing character. Comfortable & convenient. There was no TV or AC in the room we stayed in & we were happy about that. 4. The food. Home-style French & Indian food prepared a la minute by the lady of the house & her helpers- all Tamilians from the neighbouring town of Tiruvannamalai. Hearty & delicious. At the same time, it is quite gourmet if you think about it! Our dinner was mixed salad with dressing, vegetable ratatouille, squid fritters, sambhar & rice. 5. The character of the place & its owner. Both are very colourful and they go hand in hand. The main portico & reception area have been beautifully done up with quaint wooden furniture and artefacts collected from across the world. Bernard was once an enthusiastic collector & he has a knack of putting things in unexpected places, which may surprise you, but then you would not have it anywhere else- like the Buddha heads lodged in between the tree barks or the small egg shaped cave temple, or the courtroom style wooden railings flagging a beautiful stone deity alongside the petite pool, which is further flagged by massive wooden pillars, the intricately carved doors, marble top tables, the charming setting- it is an extension of Bernard's persona. Luckily enough he is a great talker & listener and it is as easy to get lost in his adventures and stories as it is to look around & truly appreciate what he has created. Go there to lose yourself and live an exceptional lives for a few days! It doesn't cost much and you may end up wanting to come back very soon.
