Our Story

The seeds of Lahe by Loka were sown in 2018 with the birth of ‘Loka House’ in Auroville that was launched by Anuradha Subramanian (Founder)– who built a place alive with interconnectedness, boundless creativity, and a strong sense of community.

Inspired by this vibrant energy, she joined hands with Nurall to form Lokastays and build a collection of boutique welcoming resorts across India. Lahe by Loka is our flagship property and a nurturing sanctuary that harmonizes with its surroundings, fostering deep connections and growth.
