A special experience awaits at this welcoming island guesthouse with inspiring views, where Manu and family treat you like one of their own. The six rooms are simple yet well looked after, and the shared bathrooms (cold showers) are kept clean. If asked in advance, your hosts can whip up a delicious thali (₹150), served village-style on the open-air patio floor.
This is pretty much the only place to stay on the island that isn’t a dharamsala (pilgrims’ rest house). It’s a bit hard to find: cross the old bridge from Getti Chowk, come around and down the stairs and turn left. After 15m, turn left into a narrow alley with a painted blue wall saying ‘Kalyan Bhattacharya’, and head up a steep set of steps. Continue to the left at the top and ask for Manu's.
