Creative Getaway

An immersive sanctuary for the soulful pursuit of artistry and expression.

Our story

On a quaint three-acre farm, Anuja found her artistic inspiration in clay, which led to an enchanting exploration into the realm of ceramics. Nestled between emerald fields and fruit trees, Aura offered her the kind of space, energy and imagination an artist needs to create freely.  As time went by, she longed to create a haven for kindred spirits, a place where artists from every corner of the globe could gather, collaborate, and find joy in creating amidst the warm comfort of nature.

Life at Aura

Acknowledging the relentless pace of artists’ lives, Aura was envisioned as a haven for collective creation but also as a respite—a place where artists could momentarily step away from the clamor of their busy worlds. Here, the rhythm of life slows down a bit, allowing you to rest, reset, and rejuvenate. Creativity as a natural outcome of an equanimous mind, body and soul is the quintessence of Aura.
