Family Functions Ahead? Book These Homestays!

Gone are the days when Indians would have their entire family living under the same roof and sharing the same kitchen. Job opportunities, higher studies, etc., have led to the movement of family members all over the country and abroad. It is only during family functions that family members can come together and celebrate the unique aspects of being a family.

One of the most remarkable things about a family function, say a wedding, is being surrounded by family and friends. If the venue comes with accommodation, the guests can be a part of all aspects of the function. For a few days, everyone stays together like in the olden days and can keep the party going late into the night.

Having a venue with accommodation or an exclusive-use venue also eliminates the hassle of family members trying to find family hotels in the city where the function will be held.


Booking homestays for family functions in OYO Rooms

Homestays are the best choice for you when looking into venues with accommodation for family functions. OYO Homestays or family hotels offer a unique ‘home away from home’ experience in every location.

The homestays offered are ideal if you wish to host a family gathering in a comfortable, homely setting at a reasonable cost. The OYO team manages these wholly private residences to provide top-notch amenities, services, and surroundings. They are maintained to provide you with a unique lodging experience. Each has a beautiful view and safe surroundings and has the same level of facilities, comfort, and convenience typically provided by luxury hotels.


Are Homestays better than Luxury Hotels?

You might be wondering why to celebrate in a homestay rather than booking a five-star hotel? 

Homestays are often better than hotels for family functions as they usually offer more space than hotel rooms. This can be important when you have a large family or extended family members staying with you. In addition to the extra space, homestays have kitchens, which can be very helpful if you plan a large group to stay together. For the comfort of children and elders, having a kitchen at your guests’ disposal can be a blessing. Also, you’ll have more privacy than at a hotel, considering most homestays are typically located in neighbourhoods instead of commercial locations. And, of course, the level of personalization you can achieve at a homestay cannot be matched by any luxury hotel.
