Ik was two night with this fantastic family. There hospitality is so genourous. Had a very good time. Hope i can get the opportunity to come back again. There experiences like cooking and village safari are great as well. This family is a gift for the village. Be sure to check them out
Wow what an incredible experience! Chhotaram and Mamata’s family welcomed me into their home for two nights, and showed me their village. Mamata is a wonderful cook, the food fresh and delicious. They were the most thoughtful hosts, and made sure I was happy and comfortable at all times. I really enjoyed learning about their culture, the sunset walk, cooking class and village tour. The mud huts were simple and comfortable. I highly recommend this homestay for anyone wanting an authentic Rajasthani experience. Thank you!!!
This was my first homestay experience and it couldn't have been better. I could feel the difference between a private room at a hotel and the homestay at Chhotaramji's place and it was amazing. We went from total strangers to understanding him, his family, the children and getting to know the real heritage which is his place and how they have been guarding their heritage and living a life of independence and self-sufficiency for about 70yrs now. And I must say we are very private people and yet we (I and my husband with our 2 dogs) loved the lunch time talking and evening chit-chats with Chotaramji, his brother, sometimes Mamtaji and her younger sister-in-law. We wouldn't be very open to talking but they were all so natural that it felt like visiting our relatives and we talked about everything like we do with a family. In 2 days of stay we got to know the place and the culture so much better than we would have ever known in our private stay at a hotel. And in all honesty hats off to the hospitality from the entire family. About the food: they have a menu booklet and they suggested a dessert thali at first and then we tasted everything we wanted to and let me list the best things- buttermilk, garlic chutney, dal-bati, churma, and the amazing parathas for breakfast, also the tea. While eating those yellow-colored very fine parathas i kept thinking how was the dough kneaded and was anything sprinkled on them after cooking- yummmm! All of it was made on traditional mud chulha. Chhotaramji always said it took time to cook on mud chulha but we were never left hungry, he made sure that he knew in advance what we would like to eat and the food was always ready on time. It will never be enough but I'm trying to write everything I can- My car had an AC failure and my driver was not willing to go out and get it fixed and it was sunday so most garages nearby were closed. I was frustrated because my dogs would have to travel without AC and I couldn't bear that. Chotaramji decided to check the car and he figured out the problem and fixed it within 2-3 minutes. All my tension disappeared :) About my dog's stay there: My dogs are used to doing their business in the garden of our house and therefore it was very convenient for them. They could just go behind the hut and poop and pee there. My dogs learned that immediately and like good boys they both pooped together early in the morning before leaving. They were absolutely at ease. About 3-5 huts were arranged in a fashion that they had a common area in the middle with small gardens and a tiny gate to separate them from the larger common area for all other huts. Since it was a new place for my dogs, they closed the larger gate (so my dogs didn't run outside the property and get hurt by street dogs) while my dogs could roam around without leash in the space in front of our hut and outside of it- ample space really to run and play for dogs as well as children. Fortunately, my dogs are very gentle (a Labrador and a German Shephered) and they were friends with all children quickly and they all played together. I can't write enough about how we and our dogs were treated as one of them and how friendly the atmosphere was. If you visit, you will learn a lot more and feel it for yourself. After all, super hosts do give you a very special experience. Finally, they have air coolers which kept the huts cool even at 42 degrees temperatures, they don't have wifi but we didn't miss it. It was an excellent experience- all quiet and serene, very peaceful and organic. Much love and appreciation to Chhotaramji and his entire family!…
i visited Salawas for a one day stay from Jodhpur and Prajapatjji had made arrangements for not just my stay but also my road travel through Rajasthan which was done very well and his travel connects were reliable. I went for a safari with his younger brother and was fun post which I and my niece stayed at his homestay for the night. The most important thing I noticed is the hygiene standards. They treat you like family and make you part of their routine. The food is homely and very tasty and you end up meeting interesting folks and have good conversations with the whole family I was very excited to see the handwoven durries made by his family and even purchased one. Its worth the price and is a good reminder of our rich culture and heritage and where we come from. Do note the homeatay is for people who like simple village life and can be slow and is not everyones cup of tea. I think I can go back and stay for a longer period if time permits and get an experience of durry making. You and the family's hospitality is fondly remembered. Thank you Prajapatji..See you.…
We were group of 17 visited this homestay between 27th Feb to 28th Feb 2022.Excellent hospitality and memorable village tour. its traditional Rajasthani hut stay and home made food. Every family member giving full contribution. We can prefer to stay at Chotoram's homestay again.
We visited this beautiful place just a week ago, I couldn't get enough of it, still feels like I am mentally there whenever I scroll my gallery. Such a beautiful and calm place it was. The real essence of homestay align perfectly with this place. A land full of green, your old style Huts with modern facilities and abondance of love what else we want.? This place is perfect stop for those who wants a break from urban chaos . For us it was best because we were in search of peace and some homely warmth and here we got Choteram Ji's place. The main attraction here is the home style cooked food it's simply lip smacking and offcourse you won't get that taste anywhere in jodhpur. From bajri rotis to rabudi curry everything was so perfect. I can highly recommend this place for family to friends and rest I am leaving on Mr Choteram ji and his brother Ashok's hospitality they are best at it. Also, we got a chance to do villege safari, tried hands on pottery, block painting . It was a fun trip overall.…

It was a pleasure staying at Chhotaram's homestay. Staying in the traditional Rajasthani huts was a great experience. It's has a very authentic and an earthy feel to it. They also served us homemade Rajasthani food which was quite simple and delicious at the same time. The hosts are very genuine and bring you into their family as one of their own. It's a very different experience from traditional hotels. If you are craving to experience the real Rajasthan, I'd highly recommended staying here.
Chhotram Home stay is amazing place and rustic experience. Chhotram himself came to pick us. His wife Mamta and sis in law Leela prepare super yummy food. Dal bhati churma prepared by Mamta was chumshewari. The place is done up very neatly taking into consideration basic needs for the guest. He took us to show sunset from a super point for which we had to climb. We also enjoyed painting few design on the huts with Katha chuna I am not a person for such home stays but enjoyed a lot
It was a splendid experience. Their hospitality is outstanding. You will feel the real vibe of Rajasthani villages. Do visit and spend atleasy 2 nights. They have a village safari as well. The food served was also very good. Rooma were well ocupied with all the facilities you need. A perfect blend of village huts and a well maintained hotel room.
