“Dwarka.. worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

my first ever trip to go all on my own was something . though for not a moment the loneliness ate me.
Dwarka is true to the words - home away from home. 15 minutes drive from sawantwadi station .. you are welcomed with nice soothing kokam juice and ofcourse energetic dilip akelkar.... and then you are introduced to warm room made of wood .. spacious room , comfortable bed and breezy balcony . the food made by amita and mavshi ( care takers) was mouth watering ... and cannot be missed.. there are many places to visit beaches , temples palace and the wood market is one of them. ideal way to spend time would be just chill at dwarka .. thats what the place is meant for.
with friends , family or alone ... this place is ideal to be close to nature and yourself. enjoi!!

We stayed at Dwaraka on the way from Sangli to Bangalore. The kids just loved it. We loved the food. All of it was locally grown there! The rooms are clean and well decorated. There are lots of places around Dwaraka to visit. We went snorkeling and scuba diving. Dont miss the Sawanthwadi fort. It is in the middle of the sea. The host Mr.Dilip was very helpful in arranging our activities. He made sure that a person was waiting for us with the tickets for scuba.
Lots of fruit trees and vegetables are grown on the farm. Mr.Dilip was kind enough to give me some seeds of plants like bhindi and palak which are now growing in my garden!
On the whole we had a great time.

We were en route to South Goa, and checked into Dwarka home stay on the evening of 6th February 2013. We liked it so much that we decided to stay on for one more day.

We were welcomed with a glass of kokum juice, then checked into our room on the first floor. It was a very neat and clean room with a double bed, and a sofa which could be converted to a bed for two kids. There was a huge balcony overlooking a compound with a lot of alphonso mango trees. Mr. Dilip Aklekar made us feel as if we were part of his own family, come to visit from the big bad noisy city.

The food was delicious, and Mr. Dilip would also join us at breakfast and dinner and chat with us, telling us about the home grown ingredients that went into preparing the meal. Most of them were grown on his farm, or came from his ancestral home in Vengurla.

He was also our friend, philosopher and guide and helped us plan our sight-seeing trip to Malvan, where we were introduced to scuba-diving, and the next day to Vengurla, from where we drove down the coastal road to Goa.

We have made up our minds to revisit Dwarka home stay in the near future.

We had a great stay at Dwaraka. It was a really awesome experience with delicious food and superb ambiance. All credit goes to Dilip kaka (owner of Dwaraka homestay) and his team. Kaka guided us so well that we could explore Sindhudurg region without any difficulty. I would definitely like to stay at Dwaraka again.

We stayed at dwarka homestay from 31/12/2012 to 05/01/2013. we found this place equally excellent for adults and kids/babies in respect of food, comfort, hygiene. Mr. dilip bhai and his staff was quite cooperative and friendly...and the resort has an green/vegitation area of around 15 acres which was good for morning walk and healthy routine point of view. owner dilip was well familiar / informed about the place and near by site seen places. Most interesting part is that this place is covered with unexplore neat and clean beaches and ilands. If a could explan Dwarka in one work that is "Marvelous ".............. great thanks to dilip aklekar and his staff members....

We stayed at Dwaraka in 1st week of Nov. It was very excellent stay... Its like Diamond in Sahyadri Mountain Ranges. Its clean, fresh air, and everything what you asked for.

Special Organic Home cooked food was excellent. Non veg lovers should at least visit one time to eat authentic Malawan food.

Dilip Sir has arranges all of our trip and we just had to visit and enjoy!

Dilip Sir! Thanks for your warm welcome and pleasant stay . Thank you for making our trip memorable. Sorry for the delay in writing the Review.

We stayed at Dwarka for couple of days. We found this place very good. Excellent kokani food with both Veg and Non Veg options equally delicious. Rooms were simple but very neat and clean. Conviniently placed near Sawantwadi. The owner Dilip Aklekar is very cooperative and well informed about the region. Overall we liked our stay very much.

Room Tip: First floor rooms seems to quite spacious with good look.
