A trip to the inner core of the body, mind and soul
The Dune Eco Village & Spa, member of TemptingPlaces boutique hotels collection, is like an Eden on earth, eclectic and colorful. At the heart of a lush 35 acre park, it features a generous organic garden, a 700m long sand beach, and everything needed to take care of the body and soul according to traditional Ayuvreda rites. Each of the 36 bungalows and bedrooms presents a unique architecture, style and decoration for a particular experience. The result is surprising, sometimes eccentric, in a zen and green environment. The boutique hotel is fully committed preserving the environment. As an example, recycled material from Southern Indian colonial houses, Chettinad palaces and Kerala planter`s mansions have been used for a significant part of the building. The hotel also chose not to equip all bungalows with air conditioning (fortunately, there is still a refreshing sea breeze!). Solar energy, low energy consumption light bulbs, and waste water treatment complete this ecological commitment.

12 km South of the Dune lies Pondicherry, a French colony until 1954. Testimonies of the French presence remain such as the consulate, the Alliance Française, the Lycée Français, the Ecole Française d`Extreme Orient and some of the street names. You can also walk along the beach road. Also to visit: the Sri Aurobindo ashram with its garden, the church of Sacré Coeur de Jésus built in 1700 by the French missionaries, the charming temples and mosques, and the Pondicherry Museum.
Auroville (Dawn City) is an experimental town hosting 2000 people of 35 different nationalities, from mixed social origins and class. This utopian concept is the realization of the dream of Mirra Alfassa, a French disciple of Sri Aurobindo, known as “The Mother”. You can visit the lush gardens as well as a permanent exhibition about the project`s history and philosophy.
