My wife and I booked it for our 4th anniversary. This is a good place all couples. Very romantic. Farm stays were never something that I thought as romantic, but definitely this was too romantic and awesome. I had a great time with my hubby here. It was a relaxing, rejuvenating, and an amazing weekend. I loved it totally. It was quite awesome. I suggest this to all couples out there.

Superb
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.

Aanandaswarup Chopra Farm Stay Experience in Panchgani
Very Good
This is the best weekend getaway for Mumbaites. No matter if you want a laid back weekend or a little adventurous one, Panchgani is just the best. However, the farm stay was more of a laid back one. So choose wisely on what you want. Food was good and we have some great co travelers. I am happy to have chosen this trip deal. The only regret was that there were not much activities to do during the trip.

We took a farm stay package in Panchgani. The advantages of taking this were that it was inexpensive, we can’t call it cheap but it was totally cost-effective, the stay and food essentials were all taken care of so no extra charges, and the food was decently fine. The stay was more of personal stay with no group activities. It would have been nice if the stay was like a camp with a camp leader and organizers explaining much on significance or history of Panchgani. It was necessary for people like us who have never been to this part of India. In short, it was good trip, but could have been lots better in my opinion.

WOW! Yes, this was amazing. A great stay with parents. My dad retired recently and wanted to go on a nice family trip. He always prefers taking packages for stay and I am not a big fan of it. When we both sat and discussed on this package, I was sceptical, but agreed. However, after the trip, I am happy about this. The place had great ambiance. The stay was pleasant. The cost was not very expensive too. The only drawback was that the food was not that great. If they rectify it, this is a killer deal.
