From the wide array of lodging options, one can either prefer an affordable accommodation that provides basic facilities, or if one is ready to splurge, he/she can go for a luxurious hotel and enjoy all the deluxe services and facilities, such as day-and-night room service, swimming pool, spa, games and sports, health club, etc. However, if one wants a home away from home, homestay is the apt choice.
