a rural boutique hotel


"A place of new experiences, joy, friends, family, smiles, sharing,

good food, spirituality, nature and creativity"



NamaSTAY Varanasi is the dream of Margaret  from The Netherlands (owner of and Kuldeep (owner of from India. Our boutique hotel  in Varanasi is in the countryside and close to the the city, simply because we love them both :) Varanasi is  a colorful , spiritual and vibrant city and Betawar is a peaceful and rural village.

NamaSTAY Varanasi has 2 small and 1 medium room with attached bathrooms, comfortable beds, a writing desk, airco and free WIFI. We also have 1 Suite with a bedroom, attached bathroom and livingroom. This Suite has the same facilities as the other rooms and is suitable for 4 guests. Perfect for a family holiday Varanasi.

But why stay in your room if you can sit in our communal livingroom with lots of  books, magazines and newspapers. This is the place to relax after a long day in the city of Varanasi. Listen to music, chat with other guests, drink a coffee and enjoy a piece of homemade cake.

To start your day we serve a healthy breakfast with fresh locally produced food. In the evening we can serve a home cooked meal.  Both are included in the room tariff.

Outdoors, a pool surrounded by extensive gardens completes this accommodations experience. Sustainability and respect for environment is very important to us. Our exclusive hotel is decorated with furniture from India and in our shop we sell products from nearby villages.

As a cherry on top we arrange yoga classes in the garden, a boatride from nearby to Varanasi, workshops, several tours through Varanasi and a free village tour which takes place daily.

We hope to welcome you as our guest soon! Kuldeep, Sakchhi & Margaret
