It is definitely value for money place, helpful and fulfilling staff and lovely green. All it needs is little up gradation in terms of interiors. Pool is clean and maintained. Try and opt for first floor rooms, they are located better with common terrace and better view. Lower floor rooms are located near the kitchen and common hall, so no... More

Went there with my wife to bring in our 2nd anniversary. Here is my review section wise. Location (3/5) Some 7kms from Mandwa. A ferry from Gateway of India takes you to Mandwa. Nearest beach is Kihim, Alibaug is some 12kms. Looks (4/5): The hotel from outside looks good. Lush green lawn, mini swimming pool, a swing in the veranda.... More

Spent a night here whilst exploring Alibag and surroundings. Very laid back and friendly place - the owner and staff are relaxed and helpful. It's 14km from Alibag and not really near any of the beaches, but as I was driving it wasn't an issue. Good to have wi-fi available free of charge.

Visited this place during christmas vacation on 25th December. Booked it online through makemytrip. It is a nice old bungalow converted into an hotel. So don't expect professionally managed hotel like environment. If you are with a large group and kids, its a nice place because there are common areas to hang out. They provide free wi-fi facility. Swimming pool... More

Well to begin with we had our first ever alumni reunion here wherein a motley group of 24 boys (now men) assembled. We were made comfortable from the moment we stepped in. The rooms were nice and clean. The food was homemade and succulent. The barbecue setting was good. The karaoke was entertaining. Good and neat garden with a pool... More

We booked the bungalow based on the high ratings on TripAdvisor and had really high expectations. The first heartbreak we had was when we reached the location.The location on Google maps and all hotel booking sites is highly inaccurate (rather completely wrong), it appears to be 1-1.5km from the beach, but turns out its 6+ km to Khim beach, I...
