Our Story

Aurastays started with the vision of

connecting villages to travellers!

Aurastays is a marketplace for discovering, listing and booking accommodations in rural spaces around the world.

Whether a treehouse built by a tribal village community, a houseboat which takes you to the backwater villages and introduce you to their lifestyle, or just staying with the villager in their homes, Aurastays has it all. If you are thinking of any accommodation which is present in the rural spaces, managed by local rural people and provides authentic local food, culture and traditions, just search for it and find it on Aurastays.

With presence in about 200 rural spaces in 12 states in India and expanding rapidly to new territories, Aurastays is striving to connect urban dwellers to what once it used to be their places of origin, i.e. villages through its chain of accommodations.

We at Aurastays urge every person who has 'settled down' in the bustling metropolis around us to just break the monotony of their routine life and travel with us to connect themselves to their origins.
