Group Accommodation at Aranha Serviced Apartments
Alternatively, the kind people at Aranha Homes have offered their 2 bedroom serviced apartments for participants of IFBMeet. These apartments accommodate 4 people on a twin sharing basis and are priced at Rs 3,200 per apartment per night, which when shared (by 4 bloggers) amounts to a nominal Rs 800 per person, per night with breakfast thrown in.

Located about 7-8 kms away from the venue, it is another good option for you to explore in groups of 4. If you would like to share these apartments with your blogger friends, do make reservations in advance. Commuting to and from the venue can also be done in groups to save time and effort.

You can check out the available accommodation at their website www.aranha.in. All bookings and transactions for this will have to be made by you, directly in contact with Aranha. If you are interested in taking this forward, please write to Sanjeeta Krishna Kumar at sanjeetakkumar[AT]gmail[DOT]com and she will put you in touch with the concerned person at Aranha.
