I had a very nice day in Chhotaram Prajapat's Homestay. Mr. Chhotaram is a highly intelligent man and knows everything about the Bishnoi People. My 3-year-old daughter played the entire afternoon with his daughter, and his wife was very kind to us. If you are keen on experiencing a real homestay in the area, you must go no further. This is the place! Excellent! Highly recommended!
We really enjoyed our three night stay with Chhotaram and his family. We booked the three night package, which included the village safari, Jodhpur sightseeing, and meals among other things. Our room and bathroom was really clean, and we were impressed with the western style bathroom and how big it was. Also, solar heating for hot water was really impressive, and not often seen in India! The food was delicious, and we felt welcomed into the family at meal times. My partner and I weren't feeling too well when we arrived, and Chhotaram and his family took really good care of us, making sure we ate things good for our stomachs and accommodating the schedule so that we could rest but still fit everything in. Chhotaram also helped us book transportation to and from his homestay, which helped us a lot when planning on the fly. The only thing I suggest is that if you have back trouble, sit in the front of the jeep during the tour as it isn't as bumpy! On the safari we saw so many animals we didn't expect to see, like the black buck and even a mongoose. This is a really great place to stay if you want to experience authentic village home life, but also want some modern conveniences like privacy and a western bathroom! Chhotaram and some family members also speak really good English, so that was never an issue. We recommend staying here.
I have been thinking about an authentic village experience in Rajasthan. I am so glad I found the property of Chotaram and Mamta ji and I was able to spend time with an amazing family/their beautiful homestay. The family ensured that they treat us like a family member from picking us from our bus stop (few miles from their home), preparing an amazing home cooked meal everytime, giving us tips on how to prepare an amazing meal and ensuring all our wishes were fulfilled + few more. I cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us and have referred them to every friend of mine and will remember this for rest of my life.
This was a perfect example of going as a guest and coming back feeling as their family member. Once again Thanks to the family for having us.
From the moment we were picked up to the moment we were dropped off at the train station we had the most amazing time. This was our first ever homestay experience and we were a little unsure of whether we would enjoy it before we arrived but as soon as we got there we knew we were going to love it. Chhotaram and his family were absolutely incredible hosts and it was a pleasure to get to know with them over the 3 days we stayed with them. The huts are brilliant, and have everything you need. The food was incredible and the experiences were unforgettable. We loved the village safari, it was eye opening to see the skills of the local artists and we really enjoyed trying our hand at pottery. After being shown the family craft of interlocked durry making we knew we had to buy one, so Chhottoram is having one shipped back to the UK for us whilst we continue our travels. If you are looking for a homestay in Rajasthan then this is it. Thank you from the bottom of or hearts for the most wonderful stay! If we come back to India in the future we will be sure to visit. Keep doing what you do, everything was perfect!
Spent an amazing night in in a mud hut in Salawas village. The accommodation felt authentic but with modern conveniences . The whole experience was terrific, the food was delicious made even more enjoyable by eating with the family and the other guests.
In addition its great value for money. You must stay here on your Rajasthan tour!
