Experience charming hospitality at this homestay set in peaceful gardens in the Chamundi Hills just 4 kilometres from Mysore city. You are a guest of the Achaiah family, who are happy to share their home and culture with you, giving you a taste of family life in India.

Your room is in a building in the garden giving you a degree of privacy. There are just 4 guest rooms, all with air conditioning, 24-hour electricity and WiFi internet access. Each room has an en-suite shower room, and all share a veranda where you can sit and listen to birdsong in the garden.

Meals are eaten in the family home. Breakfast is a treat, with a selection of Indian and international dishes, using a high proportion of organic produce. Dinner is available on request, and is a good way to experience Kodava cuisine. Keen cooks and gastronomes can take part in cookery classes (it is advisable to arrange these in advance), to learn how to recreate authentic family favourites and brush up on culinary skills. Yoga sessions and Ayurveda treatments can be arranged, and performances of traditional music and dance are organised on occasional evenings.
