Family
Namaste, My name is Samvit (Also known by some as Sam or Dr, Audichya) and I will be your humble host who would do anything to ensure your stay with us is pleasant. I am happy to invite you with a smile and welcome you to come and explore our city and villages. If you are interested, I would be happy to take you to some of our humanitarian projects and also projects based on youth education. I have been working in the development and hospitality sectors for seven years and our home combines both the elements.
Our ancestors were the high priests and Guru to the Royal family of Jaipur. Ours is a family of scholars who have spent their whole life in the educational field. My Grandfather was the Vice Chancellor in Jodhpur University and my Father Dr. Sudhir Audichya retired as the Joint director for higher college education and is currently helping me with our NGO based around education. Both my mother and sister have spent years of their life working for female rights. Even now my mother is helping the women in the area by giving them guidance and helping them with their financial needs.
If you ask me I do not really believe in cast, color, religion or racial discrimination but I do believe in the beauty which exists in all the differences and numerous shapes , infinite colors of cultural variation which you can feel everywhere in India. Our whole approach is to empower and educate the youth to be able to acknowledge, accept and appreciate life with all the differences.
In the end I welcome you again to our city, villages and to our vision of a more aware and humble world.
Welcome to India, welcome to the world of compassion and love, welcome to your own home.

If you want a break from the city hustle I so suggest Chandra Niwas. I loved the place, the location and the rural tour / village visit by samvit ji. Peaceful time spent at the Homestay and an enriching time and insight of village during our tour conducted by responsible tours. Highly recommended Samvit's place.

Samved is one of the best hosts I've had the chance to stay with. Right from the way he makes you feel welcome at his home with his insights, to his ability to find the best chai and kachoris at roadside stalls, to his two amazing dogs, we loved every minute of our stay there! The rooms are clean, spacious, well equipped and extremely comfortable, with great breakfast each morning, and help was always available when we needed it. Highly recommended.

I had an amazing time at Chandra Niwas. The room was neat and clean. The AC worked well. The WiFi was good enough, though the signal strength is on the lower side. The best part was hanging out with Samvit and having those memorable discussions over tea & kachori's.. We went to hawala gaon and got to see the work he's been doing with the locals there (DAAN Foundation). Truly inspiring and I hope he gets enough support in continuing the excellent work. All in all a terrific experience and I'll surely visit again. I strongly recommend Samvits place if u r visiting Udaipur.

First thing first, Samvit is an excellent host. The place is away from the hustle and bustle of city life. While you can enjoy a calm and quiet vacation, you need to depend on private transportation as public transit is an issue. However Samvit understands this limitation and takes proactive steps like picking and dropping from the bus stop, fixing up a reliable outbound taxi to show around the city. Overall I had a great stay. I would recommend this place and stay over threr every time I visit.
