How to Book
(Updated on 7 January 2024)
The monastery is observing our annual three-month Winter Retreat, so we are closed for overnight guest stays until 1 April. Booking reopens on 15 March, so please visit the How to Book page on our website any time from that date onwards. For more information, please read further down the page.
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.
At present, the minimum duration for a guest visit at Aloka is two weeks.
We are sorry that we won’t be able to accommodate short term guests in the foreseeable future.
The male guest accommodations are currently fully booked for the remainder of 2023. The resident community goes on Winter Retreat during the months of January, February, and March, and we do not take short-term guests during this time. All support team slots have already been booked for Winter 2024.
The next available male guest stays begin in April 2024. If you would like to request to stay in April or May, return to this page on or after March 15. We appreciate your patience.
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.
