Gitanjali Homestay

Gitanjali Homestay

A welcoming and tranquil family-run homestay

Peace at the base of the Chamundi Hills

A relaxing and private stay away from the bustle of the city at this friendly family-run homestay

The Gitanjali Homestay is a good accommodation option in a quiet spot just outside of Mysore city, at the bottom of the Chamundi Hills. As a family-run homestay it’s an altogether different experience from staying in a hotel, so while you will have all the comfort and privacy you need, you can also expect friendly service, family pets and authentic home cooked local cuisine. You can take the recipes home with you.

Accommodation is in separate cottages, each with four rooms with air conditioning and attached bathrooms. Rooms share a common verandah looking out over the gardens. The only concessions made to modern life are WiFi and kettles, otherwise it is just you and the birdsong.

This is a good option for those who want to explore the treasures of Mysore, but also enjoy a relaxing stay away from the hustle of the city.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
