Experience Luxurious Off-Grid Living in stunning nature

Have you ever wanted to know what it feels like to live off grid? Have you heard of earthships and always wondered what it would be like to stay in one? If you are thinking about one day living in a different, more connected way then staying at earthship karuna is a unique opportunity to test, taste and inquire!

Earthship Karuna is a stunning and unique property located in a beautiful clean and quiet nature spot at Karuna Dham 15km from Kodaikanal. 

Earthship Karuna A luxury home that is totally off grid and self sufficient. It is a large round open plan building with a 32 foot high vaulted ceiling and spectacular views of the mountains from the entire home. 

Earthship Karuna is here to demonstrate that off grid living can be far more enjoyable than even the best hotels! You only have to step inside and you will understand!

The space

The interior has been lovingly sculpted and finished with international artists. Some features that stand out are the beautiful spiral staircase, the wall murals, and of course plants and trees growing inside the home. 

Outside there is a large private garden with your own Gazebo. You can sit outside and enjoy the most incredible views of the area whilst enjoying your dinner. We can also deliver meals to you from our vegetarian restaurant.

Guest access

You have full access to the entire house and gardens as well as 25 acres of private nature, waterfalls, streams, natural pools and forests. 

We also have a vegetarian restaurant at Karuna by a beautiful waterfall. You can eat there or just relax and soak in the fresh clean air and views. It about a 5 minute walke uphill to get there, and 3 minutes downhill going home :)
