A bachelor break for three stressed doctors from Bangalore, it turned out to be just right. Very professionally run farmstay by the Kothavala family. No complaints whatsoever. Brilliant food. (This is adjacent to the jungle, we were visited by a pachyderm on his late night jaunt two nights in a row). Extremely clean shallow pool for frolicking.
Kothavala Sr is a fund of jungle lore and has strong opinions and expresses them in sharp witty anecdotes. Will definitely visit again.
Rooms clean and well appointed. Not recommended if you don't like monkeys, langurs, ants, insects and other denizens of nature which have been smogged to extinction in urban jungles. Be sure to request a parsi meal beforehand and you will be obliged with the most delectable cuisine.
