Ehi-Passika "come and experience" Buddha used to use this phrase when explorers used to ask about the beauty of his teaching. We are using this to welcome you all to come and experience our humble hospitality. Chandra Niwas is a simple homestay accommodation with basic rooms and bathroom fittings. It is our house which has been converted into a homestay for those who are interested in staying in the non touristy area. Most of all it is a place for socially responsible travelers and for those who are interested in getting to know our rural education initiatives. Located in a peaceful non-touristy neighborhood, Chandra Niwas provides guests with a unique opportunity to experience real Indian life and culture. This is not your average impersonal, commercial hotel in the middle of the touristy area. This is a Homestay into which you will be warmly welcomed and given personal attention to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. We welcome those guests with an interest in exploring the local community and a desire to escape the hassles and touts that plague touristy areas. Part of the revenue generated from the Homestay is invested in a grassroots non-profit organization, providing education to rural youth. In all our rooms you will find wall-hangings and bed covers made by local village artists. We have many other local arts and crafts on display in the communal area, which guests may purchase if they wish. In addition, all of our staff are employed from local villages and trained for future employment in the hospitality industry. Most rooms have WiFi, and all rooms have en-suite bathrooms with 24 hours hot water. Breakfast is served in a lovely dining area where free internet access and WiFi is available. You may also eat on the roof-top, overlooking the organic vegetable garden, and home-cooked lunches and dinners are available upon request. We also have a small library created by past travelers, including travel books, novels, and DVDs. Your hosts, Dr. Samvit Audichya and his hospitable family will personally assist you in planning your days in Udaipur, depending on your interests and length of stay. The hosts will also gladly take care of your transport needs and help you with onward travel arrangements (all at no extra cost). We genuinely enjoy helping our guests! We are a ten minute drive from the city center (4 kms) and walking distance to many stores, restaurants and a pharmacy.During your stay at Chandra Niwas you will have the opportunity to see Udaipur not just through the eyes of a tourist, but through the eyes of a local. Chandra Niwas Homestay is best suited for mid budget travelers who wish to stay away from the touristy old town and wishes to experience the true Indian Home experience. Dr. Audichya has been connected with travel, hospitality, business and social work for the last six years and is now connecting them both. Chandra Niwas welcomes the guests to visit our village development projects.

For the first time in India I managed to get nice, calm sleep, free of street noise. I have been traveling for the past 30 days solo and everywhere I stayed, I was listening to street car noise and couldn't really sleep well. This homestay is a bit far from the city center, but for that cost you are provided with calm environment, amazing rooftop view, creative rooms and really tasty homemade food. It is very clean, feels home and cozy. If you have the opportunity, have a talk with Samvit, the host of the guest house. He gave me very good tips about the city and we chat about various topics.

The place is great. The experience was amazing. Samvit, the host is a gem of a person. Place & Experience versus host: It's like comparing a Rolex with an Omega :-) From Samvit, You will understand what it's like to follow your heart and live your life for the collective benefit of humanity.

I stayed at Chandra Niwas 2 years ago during my last trip to India. I don’t usually return to the same places, as I wish to try and see what is over the next hill... I came back because I had felt something when I came before. At the homestay, in Udaipur and while going on the rural tour. I suggest you try- if you’re lucky you’ll feel it too. The homestay is beautiful, authentically Indian, in a quiet semi suburban area- within walking distance to grocery stores. There are plenty of friendly neighbors, a pharmacy, lots of chai, and Samvit and staff offer simple meals for a reasonable price. There is a driver on site to take you to the old city or Kambalgar Fort, Monsoon palace. Samvit will arrange tours - he helped me find a cooking class, and other guests to volunteer at Animal Aid.

It is an excellent home stay experience, they had delicious food and also dogs which is a brownie point for dog lovers. The place is away from the town with great rural tours and good touristy things.

My girlfriend and I left Chandra Niwas Homestay a week ago and we still can’t stop talking about how much we enjoyed our time there. Our room was very nice and the property itself is beautiful but for us, the best part of our stay was getting to meet and get to know Samvit, our host. We had such long and meaningful conversations with him over tea, sharing ideas and opinions on a variety of topics. Samvit has such a wise and kind soul and we felt very lucky to befriend him during our time in Udaipur. He went out of his way to help us with anything and everything whenever it was possible for him to do so, going above and beyond what we’d ever expect from a host. We will definitely be back to stay here in the future and we look forward to that time!
