“Cosy hideaway from the bustle of the city”
Reviewed 6 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Dalamare is about 5 km from Panchgani and accessible by a dirt road off the Panchgani-Mahabaleshwar highway. First time visitors might not be able to find it unless the caretaker leads you in, so be sure to ask for him to meet you at the Mala food stall that's on the main road. We were very impressed by the layout of the resort and the privacy given to each room. The main entrance has a huge concrete canopy in front that is probably meant to keep out the rain and sun, but it also blocks the grand view of the valley from the reception and dining area. The rooms were well appointed and had all the latest conveniences, with clean toilets and hot water. Each room has a great view and the balcony is an ideal place to relax. A healthy breakfast is part of the room price and the other meals are cooked on demand. There are a lot of options to go for walks around the area, and for more interesting sightseeing you could easily drive to Mahabaleshwar. We had an enjoyable stay there and enjoyed the hospitality of the courteous and efficient staff. Being just two hours drive from there, we would love to visit again.

Peaceful stay, homely atmosphere and good quality Maharashtrian home-made food
We stayed twice at "Dala Mare" and both the times, it was a fabulous experience. It’s truly a home away from home. The bungalow consists of 6 rooms with a common dining area and a common living room. There are two more dining arrangements in either side of the bungalow in case guests want to have their privacy. The bungalow and the surroundings are clean and well maintained. The rooms, bathrooms, adjacent balconies are well lit. Bed linen and towels are clean. Kitchen, electronic gadgets used in kitchen, crockery and cutlery are spick and span. Cell phones have no problem on getting a range and the Television, A/C and Hot water arrangements are perfectly functional. Well trained care taker members Jyoti and Ruturaj Raut, Laxman and Ujwala Ranjane provide exceptionally good service with a brimming enthusiasm with their contagious smile to the guests. They are very accommodative on the choice of food and willing to make small changes in their recipes to suit it to our pallet. Calling us prior to our visit to know our meal preferences is certainly worth appreciating. BBQ arrangement by them on the second night of stay calls for a wow. Breakfast, snacks and vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals are tasty.
Dala Mare is so beautifully planned, that from the room allocated to you, you do not feel disturbed by anyone else, whether you are single, a couple or a group of friends and colleagues.
If one considers Dala Mare, as our own home and is willing to relish steaming hot and freshly made Maharashtrian homely food, one can think of visiting Dala Mare again and again. It’s certainly a place to unwind and relax from the urban crowd and enjoy a holiday peacefully. Tariff and Food charges are reasonable and value for money.
Since Dala Mare is set in a quiet locale and is a bit away from the main town, it is a must to have your own transportation. What one must not expect is variety of cuisine such as Chinese, Punjabi or Continental menu as the care takers are well trained in preparing Maharashtrian food.
From enquiry stage until the end of our visit, our experience was amazing! Capt. Vikas Gokhale and his team deserve a big thank you from us.
We would like to visit Dala Mare again and again.

Than you very much for taking out your time to write down such a comprehensive and inspiring review. It was indeed our pleasure to host you. We look forward to seeing you back in our Dala Mare.

“A COMBINATION OF CLASS AND HOMELY COMFORT”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed 2 nights at this property of "Dala Mare" and it was a fantastic experience. True to the reviews Capt. Vikas Gokhale is an excellent host, He tried everything possible to make our stay comfortable.
Dala Mare is a new property away from the other resorts and all noisy places, it is quiet comfortable with excellent wooden decks which give you a birds eye view of the mountains ahead.
The food was excellent too, the barbeque chicken was my favourite! Clean rooms and bathrooms.
