Last weekend our group of 17 friends stayed at Hotel Abhishek Beach Resort at Ganpatipule near Ratnagiri. The resort is built on a hillock at a walkable distance from the famous Ganesh temple of Ganpatipule which is located right near the beach .The location of this resort is really exclusive .One has to cross the road outside the resort ,climb down stony stairs and you are right on a clean pristine beach, which you can walk down to arrive at the temple backyard enjoying the sea and the sand . The rooms on the second and third floor ,all have sea-facing spacious balconies and you can view the sunrise and and sunset in the comfort of your room too .
The rooms were clean .The staff was very courteous and helpful. They did not mind all the noise we made in the lobby .There is also a terrace adjoining a large conference hall , where we had our dinner under a starry sky with the sound of the waves in the background.
The food was very good and a wide choice was available .The dining area and a separate bar also had a good view.
The entire property has very good landscaping .The colourful plants and greenery was very refreshing and eye pleasing.
The management made every effort to satisfy our requirements and we were thankful after we learnt about the severe shortage of manpower in this rural part of Ratnagiri .
This resort is a bit overpriced since food is charged extra but highly recommended for its location and view and the tranquilty . Rarely one finds nature ,sea ,greenery, God and urban amenities ,all together in a truly rustic place and this is one such place .
PS : a small suggestion : Shower curtains which were missing, are very much necessary .
