Suryan was a fantastic host. The place was just like in the pictures. Suryan also helped me out of the way in getting the bike when i couldnt get any due to the season rush. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Suryan and Raja both were prompt with responses for queries before we reached. Both were present to receive us and also provided the cab service numbers for pick up from Pondicherry. We were briefed about the property, the rooms, services and do's and don'ts. Suryan was an excellent host and helped us with all the insights and details of in and around Aurovile and was very approachable. He even helped us with the AuroCard.

For someone who has stayed in the city all her life, staying in the woods seems like a dream. And this guest house is that dream realised. The house is set deep in the woods... Almost like a painting. Be ready to start your day with the pleasant chirping of the birds, take long walks around, shop for locally made products, have good food made from organically grown products, explore Auroville, and let the crickets put you to sleep. Just like I said... A dream. :) The hosts are extremely friendly and co-operative . You will get all the help you'll need for moving around . And if you feel like cooking, they have well equipped kitchen too. Simple yet tasteful, fun yet disciplined. Loved our stay here and looking forward to visit again.

The house is beautiful and the rooms are exactly as shown in the photos. It's clean and well maintained. However, I feel it would have been better if ALL the rules of the house were printed for reference. I say this because on one occasion, we had locked the main door (we were casually told not to do so) but we locked it anyway because we were just three girls staying in that house that night and wanted to feel safe. Suryan came across as quite a rude host as he coldly told us not to lock the door when he came to meet us the next day. A warmer approach would have been appreciated. Raja on the other hand was always there to help and prompt in responding. For tourists: Make sure that you ask all the details regarding cost and timings when you rent a car or a bike. Please find time to go to "Naturellement". It's a cute restaurant near the stay. Good food. Humble people.

Response from Suryan:
Thanks for your honest review Palani. I'm sorry of you felt i was rude... But i had to be firm as its very important the door remains open for all to use. For all guests: Im not always available, i'm quite busy with other things, this is why Raja is in charge of the guests. He's a really sweet guy and will take good care of you :) Also the Annex is very safe at night, we are in a very good neighbourhood, with 4 families with young children within stones throw, and there is a watchman guarding you all night.

We stayed at Room #2 of The Annex. It takes some effort to locate the property, which I think is part of the charm. The rooms were spotless and the staff, courteous. Suryan and Raja have stocked their bookshelves well. The WiFi is, at times, patchy but that is down to the remoteness of the location than anything else. Be warned that Airtel connectivity drops in the area; BSNL works best. I'd recommend going for a non-AC room because there are no windowpanes, just mosquito-meshes. There are curtains, but privacy could be a concern for some.

I grew up mostly in Auroville, but some of those years also between Germany and England. Ive been running our family guest house now for about 10 years and have finally after all this time employed RAJA as assistant manager to help me out.
Ive always been a lover not a fighter unless it was necessary, i wish joy and fulfilment upon all of creation, i stand for honesty as a foot soldier of truth, and i wish 'I' grant me to be a force of change in this life.
I'm besotted with nature, like playing and watching football, avid musician singer-songwriter and too many more things to mention ;)
