“Wonderful 3 star resort in Dapoli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

I stayed there with my family with kids in Diwali 2012 and it was a great experience. This resort is way apart from the usual konkan hotels available around that area. It is new resort. So, cleanliness is not a issue. Rooms are all neatly done with LCD and small sit out. Though, rooms could have been little bigger to accomodate a small sofa set......Nice, clean and comfortable bed. Nice working A.C. units. Good restaurant with sufficient variety for buffet breakfast and meals. Buffet Meal is little expensive......But they hardly have any competition.....Location is very unique where you see only nature from your bed.........Very peaceful and tranquil...................The gym and spa is a add on.....All in all, a great vacation in Konkan......The best resort in Konkan !!

Room Tip: Magnolia cottages have nature view, which is a plus.

My fiance and i visited Fern-Dapoli for 2 nights and i must say our stay was wonderful. The property is huge and we enjoyed the quiet time away from the usual madness. The staff is extremely helpful and co operative... The rooms are well maintained - the sit out area is a nice concept with a view of the mountains..
on the other hand the food is not tasty.. basic indian food like dal and palak paneer was not cooked well- how wrong can any restaurant go with that?? the chinese starters are a better option and so is the chinese main course. This aspect needs to be looked upon by the management. We were also promised a buffet dinner and breakfast on 2 nights and 2 days, but were provided only one buffet breakfast and NO buffet dinners (due to lack of guests) -we were allowed to choose what we wanted from the menu tho.. Overall fab experience only cos of the place -- book the Lilian rooms for the bathroom and the lilian room for mountain vieew... P.S.- The photos on this site is exactly what the resort looks like :-)

Room Tip: book the Lilian rooms for the bathroom and the lilian room for mountain vieew...

We didn't expect much when we booked a room at Fern Samali but what we got was more than what we bargained for.
They provide you separate cottages (which might smell a little during monsoons but you have to understand that this is in Ratnagiri and you can't stop it from happening).
The facilities in the resort are excellent barring the food, which is not at all tasteful. They gave me pineapple juice saying that it was pina colada.. :)

overall the property is big and the location is really good, and the staff there also is always smiling and courteous, but the biggest problem is the cleanliness.. its not at all clean.. it is not maintained properly... the resort is a sell out during weekends atleast the weekend i went.. inspite of this i fail to comprehend why the management is not going that extra mile and spending more on cleanliness.. i could see COBWEBS everywhere and the restaurant's toilet is absolutely in bad shape.. and the walls in the rooms have dark patches all over cos of rains and it looks really bad. so overall if the resort is maintained well it is absolutely a fantastic place for its location and smiling staff.

Room Tip: Choose Magnolia cottage for a better view

Had gone with my family for a weekend vacation to Dapoli. Stayed at The Fern Samali Resort. The property is vast and well maintained. It has a total of 16 cottages. The rooms are comfortable for a couple. We had asked for a third bed which cramped the room for walking space. The hotel is new (started in Jan 2012) and the staff are enthusiastic and helpful. The food choice is limited and quality is average. The fried rice was served in clumps and was tasteless. The restaurant has a lot of flies which makes eating a nightmare. The hotel needs to take quick and serious action on this front as it robs the patrons of the pleasure of enjoying their food. Not much to do in the premises of the hotel except to take long walks and enjoy the ambience. Maybe, as it is new it has not yet developed all its facilities.

Room Tip: Lilian Cottages have an open air lily pond bathing area.
