Be our Guest on Pay What You Like
We invite travel and adventure enthusiasts to visit, experience and evaluate the services at our newly launched Eco Villages without any compulsion of payment. The visitor decides on the price of experience on return and shares the justified amount. The concept replaces the very traditional “Value for Money” criteria of service evaluation to “Money for Value”.
The entire concept revolves around encouraging and promoting evolved and progressive population from cities to spend some quality time with villagers, understand their survival issues, learn from their best practices of living, labour contribution at their farm and thus boosting them for their efforts and quality life full of oxygen and happiness. This exchange of care and respect aim to increase self-esteem and willingness to continue efforts towards rebuilding their villages. The drive also endeavours to popularize the uses of Himalayan Produces and some very rare nutritious cereals and fruits which is at present limited only to the state due to lack of marketing and consumer awareness. The meals served to the visitors are purely regional and created from local produces. Guest will also have option of joining the farming practices in the region and take away the memories and adding to the size of market for Himalayan Produces.
Yes, it totally depends on your experience of services and willingness to pay an amount for the value that you receive.
Maximum stay duration is 2 nights/ 3 Days.
The number of rooms allocated for this offer is solely discretion of management.
The offer is a marketing initiative to connect the market with the products and people and to understand the affordability of guests for such experience. Hence, there are other operational and revenue strategies at place to support this offer. For example, the traveller also ends up becoming the becoming the buyer & brand advocate of our Natural Himalayan Produce. The other safety net is that the type of socially evolved traveller who are going to travel for such experiences, are likely to end up paying something.
We are roping in volunteers from leading hotels under CSR to give hospitality kits and superlative training and skill development for the villagers/farmers. On the other hand, ‘No expectations – No obligations holidays’ concept brings expectations of the traveller on the lowest denominator hence reducing pressure on conventional operational excellence.
It’s a virgin idea born out of years of experience and feedbacks from end users to replace “Value for Money” way of assessing services to “Money for Value”.
