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

A luxury home that is totally off grid and self sufficient. It is a large round open plan building with 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.

Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu, India

Karuna Dham is one of the most beautiful nature spots in the world. SO much so i built Earthship Karuna there after 15 years of searching.

The area is remote and borders a large natural wildlife sanctuary. You can walk in any direction and see incredible forests, streams, waterfalls, and nature in all its glory.

At Karuna Dham we harmonise with nature taking care of body mind and spirit without compromising on basic amenities and comfort. We have chosen an alternative lifestyle and made it work. This is the core purpose of Karuna. The ultimate purpose of all our activity is to fine tune the body & mind to relish the nectar of our true nature, i.e. Eternity, knowledge and bliss. Members at Karuna are aspirants of this mood and are happy to share their experiences towards this end. At Karuna we don't use electricity from the national grid. All power is sourced from solar energy and hydroelectric power. The climate and water resources are good for cultivation all through the year. The potential is good. Various systems of organic farming are being practiced. At present 20 varieties of fruits are growing. Since 2009 we have been producing fruits, vegetables, grains and milk. Karuna is surrounded by forests and peaks on either side, with paths for a short forest stroll or an all day trek, with spectacular views, tropical forest and wildlife.
