The very helpful owners were no match for the dust laded TV set and the grimy bathrooms. That the cleaning help was also cooking lunch didn't help the atmosphere. My wife and I decided to leave within an hour of checking in even when it meant us forgoing the advance we had paid for two days at the time of booking. Strictly to be avoided.

Room Tip: Get a room only one you get there.

On my family tour, while returning, we took small stay at Malvan. We stayed for just one day but we felt we should have taken one more day to see few more places around. Malvan is famous for the Sindhudurg fort which was built by world famous King Shivaji maharaj.

From Panaji, we took bus which dropped us at Kudal. Frome here there are buses at hourly frequency to malvan. Though distance from Kudal - Malvan is small, may be 45-50 km it took around 2 hours to reach. We had nice lunch at Kudal, opposite to Kudal ST stand. We got taste of Solkadhi, famous local item made from Coconut water. We reached Malvan around 4 pm. The hotels to stay are in the town and ST stand is bit outside the town. We had to take rickshaw and we went to one hotel. It was Sun n sand hotel. This name resembles famous five star hotel but no corelation. We saw the room, little bargaining done and took the room.

The room was bit small compared to what normally we take. It was bit costly also. But there are very few options in malvan to stay. Many people go for stay st Tarkarli which is famous beach nearby at 5 km. We preferred to stay at Malvan as we had to go next day to some other destination. The room surrounding was excellent. It was lush green even in mid summer days. Trees like mango, coconut etc. were full of respective fruits. Raw mangoes were on mango trees. The stairs in the hotel had nice glass windows which could be opened and see nice nature around. Room was neat and clean. They had nice arrangment in the room itself for clothes drying. The hotel is in the town and small needs like soap, powder etc. could be fulfilled in nearby shops. In fact we were surprised to see local mall there called Malvan Mall. It was small but had supermarket / mall concept.

In the evening we went to the beach. Beach here is small and not very famous. But they had made small road with sitouts to sit and watch sea. This road leads to Boat point where you can take boats for famous Sindhudurg fort. It can be seen from the beach also. As sun set was close, we could see the fort slowly being invisible in the darkness. Then we decided to go another spot which was not famous but had complete satisfaction by experiencing it.

We went to one Jai Ganesha temple. This is Ganapati temple built by Kalnirnay calendar owners. The temple was just marvellous with lots of white stones used. We saw various mudras / poses of Ganapati bappa. The main idol is made of Gold hence it can be called as Suvarna Ganesh also. There is one more Suvarna Ganesh famous at Diveagar beach. But this idol was very nice. The idol was glittering and the bappa was blessing us. We had devotions there and chanted the arati also. We sat there for some time. Nearby there was provision of dinner. Fresh, house prepared food was just excellent. We walked back to the hotel. We didnt feel any fear though the roads are silent and no traffic at all at night. This temple is around 1.5 km from hotel.

Next morning we freshed and went to beach to head towards Sindhudurg fort. We had to wait for some time as they require batch of some minmum personnel to send to the fort. My kid was very eager to watch the fort from inside. This fort is one of the forts built up by world famous Shivaji maharaj during his kingdom around year 1660. So this fort is standing from past 350 years in the sea taking all the waves on it. Its rock solid. The architecture is just brilliant and considers lots of war requirements. There are many wonders inside the fort and hence its just WONDEFUL !. It has 3 wells inside which has potable water amidst sea ! Just imagine ! Potable water well inside the fort which is standing and fully surrounded by sea ! It has another iteresting nature made wonder inside. We normally see coconut tree with single branch. It had coconut tree with 2 branches but it is burnt recently due to lightening. The remains are still interesting. Another unique here is the only Shivaji maharaj temple in the world. Its nice to watch the famous king's temple. The buildings inside the fort are the remains. Few people live inside the fort. MTDC has just developed facility like scooba diving to see underwater world of fishes, corals etc. near the fort. What we watch on Discovery channel is possible to see live here. But since we were not very comfortable to swim, we avoided it.

We returned the beach. We took nice lunch there as Veg thali including solkadhi once again. We did some shopping of typical kokan items like Kajus, Ambawadi etc. but interesting was Kaju chocolate.

The hotel staff were elder personnel of helping nature. We even called them kaka / uncle many times. They had battery backup also to face the power shortage / loadshedding. We will never forget the malvan experience of Golden ganesha and Sindhudurg fort.
