Amit Aggarwal: Shanthi guest house is one of the best places to stay in Hampi. It is situated on other side of river (called Virupapur Gadde). River facing huts are priced Rs 1000/- against regular ones at Rs 650/- . I would recommend river facing ones as it offers a great view. Krishna is the owner of this place and is quite helpful and cooperative. I had some last minute changes in plan which he took care of. In front of the room, there is a hammock where you can lie down and enjoy the natural beauty.

Sandeep Nair shares: We visited Kutch in February 2015 and stayed in Shaam-e-Sarhad for a night. It is an excellent theme resort that gives you a feel of rustic rural life. We stayed in a family mud cottage. Other option is to stay in a tented accommodation. The cottage was spacious and had an attached bathroom that was very clean. Room was also very clean and because it was a mud cottage, it was very cool inside. Food served is typical Kutchi cuisine and there was folk music performance by the local artists. The resort is located not far from the white desert.

Megha Goel: Tantra is a beautiful place. It is actually built on bamboos. You have bamboo stairs to reach your room and each room too is made by tying bamboos and bedsheets. Tantra is an experience in itself. The place has amazing food. They serve yummy tandoori food. The kababs and biryani are a must have. They serve hookah too. They have shack arrangements for outsiders. If you are the backpacker type you will find a lot of backpackers staying from all across the world. The place is not expensive and easy on the pocket. Do not forget to party at Curlies in the evening when you stay at Tantra, Anjuna.

Karthik Subramaniam: Like all MTDC resorts, MTDC Bhandardara is an absolute Value for Money. The location is again beautiful, you can see the Arthur Lake from your balcony itself. There are other resorts nearby like Anandvan & Yash, but in my opinion MTDC definitely scores on the location part.
