- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A quaint homestay set amidst the densely forested and scenic Sahyadri forests, with a gushing river flowing alongside the property. The homestay is managed by the Tulpule family. Serene Ravine has a rustic look but hosts modern amenities like satellite television, attached bathrooms, running hot water, generator backup, membrane filtered water and wireless Internet, just to name a few! We provide a wholesome rejuvenating experience! You will be greeted with warm smiling faces and served a cool kokam drink upon arrival. After refreshing yourselves, a scrumptious lunch awaits you. Lunch can be vegetarian or you can dig in to the fish! Then, you either have a chance to unwind with an afternoon siesta, or you can walk around the huge property through a supari and coconut plantation, and sit lazily dangling your legs in the river. The late afternoon calls for a cup of tea and biscuits, which is served on the front porch. Evenings can be utilized by visiting the neighbourhood pristine beaches of Harne, Murud, Karde and Anjarle. When you come back, a piping hot dinner awaits you, again, vegetarian or non-vegetarian, along with a local sweet dish. The young at heart can enjoy a nice campfire and sing and dance around it! The brave ones can also take a walk around the property in the ink black night, where you might spot a wild hare or a barking deer! Enthusiasts can enjoy stargazing far away from the glare of the city lights. In the morning, let the calls of the Malabar Whistling Thrush or peacocks or jungle fowls wake you up. Freshly brewed tea and an authentic Maharashtrian breakfast is provided as soon as you wake up. Stroll along the cowshed and watch them being milked and groomed. Watch cashews being processed and try your hand at shooting with an air gun! The area also provides you other tourist attractions like the "Kadyawarcha Ganpati" at Anjarle, Keshavraj temple, dolphin safaris, the Dabhol power plant, the Chandkai temple, and the 42 feet high Parshuram statue.
