How to Book

(Updated on 12 December 2022)

The monastery observes Winter Retreat during the months of January, February, and March.

The men's and women's accommodations are located separately in the monastery, so bookings are also made separately. Please note that we are unable to guarantee single rooms for any guests.

Female Guests

At present, the following minimum duration for a guest visit at Aloka is as follows:

– a two-week minimum for those women who have stayed with us within the last 3 years 

– a one-month minimum for women who are staying with us for the first time, or haven’t stayed here for a while 


We are sorry that we won’t be able to accommodate short term guests in the foreseeable future.




Male Guests

We are not able to accommodate overnight guests during the Winter Retreat months of January, February, and March, and the guestmonk does not answer emails from January 1 to March 15. The first available guest stays begin April 1, and booking for April and May will begin on March 15. Please return to this page after March 15 for further information.

Male guest stays are currently available for a three-night minimum duration. In order to reduce the number of cancelled reservations, we do not accept booking requests more than two months in advance. For example, if you would like to request a stay beginning on August 10, please submit your request on or after June 10.
