All accommodations are comfortable, spacious, clean, elegant and can be single or shared, 2 to a room, though I highly recommend single accommodation as the trip is 15 days and some of the Ayurveda treatments can go deep.

If you do choose to share accommodations, please let me know who you will share with. Otherwise, we reserve the right to put roommates together, as we see best, and will not be able to accommodate changes once the trip begins.

One exception is that the houseboats are shared accomodation only: Two to a room.
