India offers plenty of variety when it comes to choosing accommodation, whether you're looking for unbridled luxury or a simple homestay. Characterful hotels in restored forts and palaces, converted havelis (historic family mansions) can be found in the northern region, while the large cities offer everything from luxurious five star hotels to smaller, colonial era boutique guesthouses. Elsewhere, stilted tea bungalows and remote lodges offer local character and charm. Homestays, or theravads, in places like Kerala allow you to truly get an insight into life in rural India and former rice barges make charming houseboats, providing a unique way to explore the backwaters. Finally, for an unrivalled jungle experience we offer a range of authentic safari camps and treetop lodges that place you in the heart of the forest.
