Bhuj town has hotels for all budgets. Among those you can choose from is the 3-star Hotel Prince (Tel: +91-2832- 220370; Tariff: INR 3,750-8,250), which offers 40 rooms and restaurants, is on Station Road, and also houses a liquor permit shop. However, if it’s adventure and heritage you seek, try the Kutch Safari Lodge (Mobile: +91-98250-13392, +91-99252-38599 for owner Mike Vaghela; Tariff: INR 3,850), 14 km north of Bhuj town.

The lodge offers traditional Kutch-style rooms and bhunga (round) cottages with thatched roofs facing the Rudrani Dam Reservoir. The lodge also organises excursions for the Bhagoria Festival on the Gujarat-MP border, during Holi. Eating out in Bhuj is a simple affair. Kutch cuisine is not very inventive but it’s wholesome. You can sample it at Jantaghar Restaurant at Abha Hotel, near the bus stand. Close by is the equally good Kishanghar Restaurant.

A typical meal in such restaurants would include rotla (a thick roti made of bajra), an egg plant dish, khichdi, chhaas (buttermilk, a Kutch favourite), gaul (jaggery) and ghee, followed by kadhi and bhaat (rice). Kutchis are liberal with oil so make your preference known while ordering a meal. Neelam Restaurant opposite Hotel Prince serves regular North Indian vegetarian fare. For non-veg, try the restaurant at Hotel Prince. A sumptuous meal at these two restaurants costs roughly INR 700 for two. Most Kutch eateries are situated around the bus stand.
