It was pure fun and delight for the three days. There were a lot to enjoy in these days. Sightseeing tours were so detailed and the guides too were very skilled. All the arrangements were made accordingly and things went very smoothly. Nice trip to revisit history.

I, my wife and our son stayed at Maachli for 3 nights in Oct 2016. it was the most calming and relaxing Holiday ever. Maachli has the right mix of comfort and the wild....with lovely Huts surrounded by acres of Plantation housing amazing flora and fauna. My son (13 years) is absolutely mesmerised by the stream and nightlife at Maachli. We woke up everyday to the pitter patter of dew drops falling on banana leaves....went for morning walk to the Lotus Lake (acres of lotuses)...had a sumptuous wholesome and oh so tasty breakfast..and then some natural pedicure at the stream....it was nice. Prathamesh took us on a nature trail one morning which was the icing on the cake..where we saw different bird species (esp the reclusive malabar pied hornbills)..and the old temple under an ancient tree...the whole experience is so beautiful. It was fun to have engaging conversations with Senior Samant kaka..who is so knowledgeable about the area and always ready for a good chat. The staff is very sweet and helpful. There are still so many things we wanted to do at Maachli...i am sure there is going to be a next time.

"On our way to Goa, we stayed in Maachli from Ganpatipule. The host here is Prathamesh and his father who definitely played the role of a great host. They very well took care of us. We were served with traditional Konkani food which was definitely the most authentic Konkani food that I have ever tasted. Cottages here are very well maintained and elegant. A lot of attention has been given by the owners on the detailing. Food is served in copper utensils that gives it a very nice and a traditional touch. Right next to the cottage is a stream flowing which was a great place for a natural fish spa. By the end of it, I definitely felt very relaxed and cam. Prathamesh took us on a small hike in the morning. He told us stories relating to the plantations and the surroundings. He even helped us identify some of the rare and exotic birds that we saw here. My kids enjoyed it as well. I will definitely come back for a stay again. "

unless you are full prepared i won't recommend you to visit the three vasota divisions. The old vasota fort has dense forest reserve and is home to many animal habitats too. Whereas the new vasota fort is the actual fort point where trekkers and historians come for their task and the last division called nageshwar cave which a small lord shiva temple is mostly visited by worshipers. To make your trip even more memorable you can stay for few moments at wildlife sanctuary to spot different animals and birds. over all its a great place guys....

ours was a wonderful trip to the beautiful vasota fort and koyan wildlife santuary. Reaching an trekking on vasota has a complicated process to be undergone. Bamnoli is the nearest village from where one can head towards the fort. But to reach you need to depart on boat called launches. And yes it is a very peaceful journey on the koyan river.... wao feels out of the box. Trekking process is complicated in a sense that you need the proper permission before embarking on trek. And overll its a fantastic point!!

Being a beach lover I absolutely loved the idea of visiting this place for the weekend. The house is facing the sea and provides a great view from the rooms. The rooms had the minimal required facilities but was comfortable. I used to love lazying around on the beach and gorge on the yummy sea food. They have a large variety of fish, prawns, crab and other sea food. The local delicacies are mouth watering. After a good time at the beach we would head back to the house and relax around the campfire.

Panchgani is one of the most beautiful hill stations in close proximity to Mumbai and is known for its beautiful scenic views. Finding an economical homestay in this area for a relaxing weekend felt great and we were all very excited for the experience. Once we reached we were not let down by what we discovered. Located amidst beautiful surroundings the house was very cozy and comfortable. At night we lit a campfire and were completely relaxed. One of my best weekend experiences.

Beautiful and serene place which allows you to relax and de-stress after a long week. Since it is located very close to the sea we could visit the beach anytime. We loved watching the sunset. There are loads of things to do even if you plan to stay indoors. We enjoyed a game of carrom and played cards. The cottages are very comfortable and have a wonderful view. They have wooden interiors giving it a typical Russian wooden cottage feel. Very refreshing experience.

Get your own vehicle and join the service providers, otherwise, it will be difficult to reach the location if you are coming late. Me and my friends dipped in the pool, it was good. Nearby there is the waterfall also. For trek lovers, this is a good choice. Camping in the middle of trees and mountains was great. Food would be limited but the local village taste is there. I found it okay. I was bothered about the accommodation. But the tents were safe.
