It was an impromptu decision to make a trip to Matheran. But the stay in the lovely hotel made all the efforst worthwhile, especially as we encountered all sorts of adventure- started with a flat tire from Mumbai, reached Dasturi short of 5 mins and missed the toy train, encountered monkey attack as we walked up the way to Barr house. After 1 hr of uphill walk, as we set out foot in the varendah of the lovely resort, all our tiredness was swept away. The ambiance is calm, serene. The place well maintained. The architecture has a old world charm, with all the basic amenities available. Food that gives you the taste of home kitchen. And very courteous staff. Though we stayed there just for a day, it felt as if I had been there for more than that. We came back refreshed, charged. Was glad to be part of the experiance and look forward to more such experiances with Neemrana resorts
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The paths once cleared by the British in the forests of Matheran, making it the last British hill station have acquired a new identity as the place where Bombay’s movers and shakers which include filmstars and businessmen come to spend a few quiet and peaceful days.Perched atop the Sahyadri ranges, Matheran is Asia’s only pedestrian hill resort. Chug up in a toy train, trot, or arrive in a palanquin, past gigantic mansions built by the British, the Parsis, and the Bohras. The Verandah in the Forest was the second house to be built on the isolated Western Ghats, by Captain Barr. Now, with every facility in place, it is reputed to be second to none! Indeed, the nobility of the proportions of The Verandah bring civilizational honour to the Sahyadri ranges. Lounge like never before in this verandah of your dreams. Read under the highest domestic ceiling you would have known in the salon – 12 metres/35 feet high. Stroll down to Charlotte Lake. Or take longer walks with a picnic basket. Relish the local cuisines. Heave your chest, muscle your calves, take all the oxygen back in your lungs. Link your planet with your own two feet.Find space for more space in your mind. Or lose yourself to find yourself anew.Long after you return, you will wonder who would have dared to sprawl out such a tree-home space in such spell-binding wilderness? ... more less
