Welcome to Native Place Traveller’s Guide. If you are coming to Native Place for the first time, here are few facts you may want to know and few suggestions / recommendations you may
want to keep in mind. We would also suggest you to go through the various sections of the website to find out about all the facilities
that we have to offer.
- Food Supplies: We support the local economy by purchasing most of our ingredients from the local market and directly from the farmers.
We have a policy of using fresh local produce. Not only does this enhance the quality of the food we serve, but also reduces the ‘food miles’
travelled to reach the plate and, thus, the level of carbon emissions generated. The rice we serve is a variety grown especially by farmers in
this region and the pickles are homemade. So of the ingredients come from our own garden.
- No Room Service: Being a guesthouse, we have limited staff and do not offer room service.
- Guests are not allowed into the kitchen and we do not allow refrigeration of your personal foods and beverages.
- Our rates are standardized. Please don’t request for discounts.
- Pets are not allowed. This is keeping in mind comforts of all guests who come to Native Place.
- Please respect other guests and do not play music within the common areas of the guesthouse or in a manner as to
disturb other guests.
- Eco-friendly : Native Place strives to be a sustainable and eco-friendly venture. Please help us by switching off lights and fans when not
needed. Please conserve water, and do not litter.
- Native Place Garden: In the garden we have a preference for indigenous plants that attract birds and butterflies and other wild life to the
garden. These plants survive on limited water and fertilizer, thereby ensuring that we use fewer resources. We also follow permaculture
principles and the Nateuco method of organic farming, making our own compost (amrit mitthi) and reusing our own resources.
Garden Discovery Cards: We have compiled a series of Garden Discovery cards for you to explore the many delights and treasures in the garden. We urge you to use them and share your findings with us on our facebook page - www.facebook/native. You will find them on a
stand by the dining table.
