Where to stay in Rameswaram

Built on a tiny island, Rameswaram offers limited accommodation options, most ranging from standard to budget--though some economy hotels still offer luxury service. Frequent visits by pilgrims have spurred a number of boutique hotels and residential-type lodgings, as well as villas. Many mid-range hotels on the eastern part of the island offer a beachfront, while shoestring travelers have a number of options across Rameswaram.
