Ganpatipule is a sea side village around 35-40 kms from Ratnagiri along the konkan coast of Maharashtra. Its a small place with very good clean beach & famous Ganesha temple on the beach.
We were looking out for a quiet place away from Mumbai city without maddening crowds & Ganpatipule turned out to be an apt choice. I booked the MTDC Resort from their website http://www.maharashtratourism.gov.in , the online booking feature was a much needed to enjoy all the resorts that MTDC has around Maharashtra. Please book as early as possible since MTDC resorts aren't very big & are in good demand for most part of the year.
MTDC resort at Ganpatipule is just opposite to the beach, the whole of the beach is visible from most of the rooms here. I had opted for Sea View Deluxe Room AC since that was the only option available at the time of booking.
The room was good with a marvelous view to the sea & the beach. MTDC resorts are not known for good upkeep of the rooms but i was a little surprised this time around, found the rooms to be better & also maintained well.
The restaurant here was OK with basic menu options but since we were traveling around we always had options.
One can also visit Ratnagiri especially the port which is on a small hill & one side facing the sea. Check the attached photo of the Ratnagiri fort.
