The main aim of Gandhar Eco Lodge is to allow people to relish the rural culture amid a highly comfortable setting. We got to stroll around the silent lanes, and observe the the blend of natural solutions in construction of the shacks, water-heater systems, among others. Nothing matches a quaint walk on the beach that we took. It was completely unwinding. We also indulged in Rangoli with fellow travellers and tried our hands at statue-making. It was a great time of relaxation for all of us. We completed the tour by watching a movie in the local 'cinema' hall, and this experience was icing to the day. This was indeed a slice of rural India during our charming stay here.

The beach camping was a nice and classy experience. My friends went to this camp few months back, and were raving about it time and again. I was super excited about this, and I also asked my husband about this. When we saw on internet, we decided this is the place for our next vacation. We had a great time. The management of the tour pack has arranged everything in a nice manner. It was nevertheless a great experience. I enjoyed it to the core. What is more interesting is that this trip was very much in our budget. I am totally amused by how well the trip turned out.

This place is situated on Mandwa-Sasawane Road. The place we stayed was called the Countryside Resort. It was a perfect getaway to stay in the arms of nature. It was a great and an interesting weekend. It is a perfect melange of unique design, modern day hospitality, and old world simplicity. This is exactly how I always want my weekends to be. This is located close to the Mandwa beach, so it was easy for us to enjoy water sports on the shoreline. This was the best trip that I had in the recent times.

The Revdanda Beach camping was a brilliant experience that I encountered in my life. The camping experience was exquisite and brilliant to say the least. It was really a soul thirst quenching swim that we had there. This camping is enjoyed if you go with a gang of friends. Especially, if you are still in college, then this camp is a must vacation. We were three grown-up adults who had this much fun, if you are a bunch of youngsters, you get to enjoy even more as with this camp, it is more the merrier.

Such a beautiful place. Trust me guys this is much better than Goa, what I liked best was that the entire place including the beach was secluded which gave us ample time to realx and take long walkes on the shore. Had a pleasant stay, the lodges are beautiful and has a certain countryside appeal. Amazing experience.
