We went at this place last weekend. We were around 15 people. Place is very nice. Gupte kaka helped me a lot while planning this trip via email, calls or whatsup. They shared every detail during pre-booking. When we reached they greeted us with Kokam and Tea, then they took us for Vanbhojan. During that drive they explained us surrounding tress. Lunch was served in jungle (Vanbhojan) - We had Mutton, Egg curry, Bhendi, home made shrikhand etc.. It was delicious. Then they took us to Pawankhind, before visiting actual site they explained the history of Pawandkhind and it was in detail and explained beautifully. That helped us to understand the importance of that place. Dinner was good, we have chicken fry and mix veg. For breakfast, we had pohe and misal. Overall stay was good. Thanks Kaka for wonderful experience.

Mr. Gupte explained us usefulness and significance of few surrounding tree. also shared knowledge of snakes and other insects. Lunch was served in jungle - vanbhojan was delicious. in dinner we had chhole which is one of the best. Similarly morning breakfast we were served uppit. which was made of corn and delicious. Mr. Gupte also depicted story of pawan khind beautifully. Resort has enough space for a groups of 20+ people. They have 17 rooms. we consumed 6 rooms. Swimming pool is well maintained and good size. Jacuzzi was not working. Hot water could be a problem during full occupancy. Overall host listens to your requests and is very cooperative. Mr. Gupte was keen to ensure our comfort and share knowledge of plants.
