**Pay what you Like for your meals made largely of indigenous millet, pulses and locally grown vegetables: An initiative to promote “Regional” and “Seasonal” elements in our food platters.
Our culture had embraced “Atithi Devo Bhavah” in real terms when friends, families and sometimes perfect strangers used to visit our homes, enjoy non pretentious hospitality and give something heartfelt in some form or the other, as per one’s capacity - as a token of goodwill gesture. The culture is on the brink of extinction so are we as compassionate humans. With ‘Pay What You Like’, we are making a small but honest attempt to revive this practice in our village tourism destinations. You don’t ask us what you need to pay - you be our guest – Evaluate the degree of contentment you have achieved with the regional meals and then Pay What You Like; in the drop box with your name and feedback, in an envelope provided to you at the time of departure.

We don't serve gourmet meals. We live and promote the philosophy of 'smart minimalism' and we are an 'absolute no', if you are seeking conventional hospitality.
We coexist with nature and these areas are prone to wild mammals, insects, and snakes so one needs to be careful and one is responsible for one’s own safety.
