We travelled as a group of 10 (5 couples). The place is in Harichandi village near Tapola. You will have to get down from Mahabaleshwar & drive for 30 km to reach the place. The road is awesome & surrounded with greenery & breathtaking views of valley. You can feel the clouds touching you. Visibility on road is not more than 20 feets. Vijay came 17 km far on his scooty to receive us as place is difficult to find. I haven't seen so kind people in tourism industry. We saw group of peacocks near Harichandi village. We knew we have chosen the perfect destination. Sakha Niwas is not star kind of property, but rooms & toilets are kept clean, do not expect star facilities at this place. Their forte is awesome food, awesome hopitality & making you feel like you are enjoying holidays in your relatives place & not in a resort. Both veg & Non Veg food was awesome. They also dis fabulous barbecue on request at very cheap price of Rs 50 per head. About the place, is surrounded by lot of greenery & forest, koyana back water & hills on other side. I am really delighted with the experience & surely recommend Sakha Niwas if you are travelling in a group or Family.

Return to the basics of nature/ hospitality/Village life.
IF you are a nature lover and your family or friends want to enjoy a day or two,this is the right choice I feel.We were warmly greeted by Mr. More and family.As 'SAKHA' the place is a family run tourism center we experienced a personal touch in hospitality yet a professionally managed center. Activities:There are lots of activities that we can do there especially village ride, jungle safari/trekking etc.2 days are just not sufficient to capture the nature and feel not to return to concrete jungle as you become a part of the More family and enjoy every moment.
Food:The food is best of its home made type(Tasty, healthy and hygienic) especially for Kids. My kid enjoyed the food we all loved it.
Thanks to More Family to make a place which is best to stay affordable to visit again and again.

Room Tip: "Room are good but Tents are best ask for place for beautiful river view"

It is sort of a dreamland if you come from a concrete jungle, a place where you can be at peace.

For our accommodation , we chose to try both: guest house and tent. The guesthouse had a big, clean room and a personal washroom. As for the tent, it was spacious, with a fan, vault, and windows too!! Sitting outside the tent we could dine alongside a bonfire. From that point, I saw the sun setting and eventually the moon rising up the other horizon with infinite stars coming in view.
(If you wish to go for the tent, make sure you reserve that from first.)

The food was great. We had something of our choice cooked, when there weren't any other guests. But to have a change, you must try the delicacies made by the locals there.

Its a perfect place for bird  watchers, I spent hours listening to their mellifluous songs.
En route, I saw no man crossing the road even once, but I did see peacocks do so!! Also spotted an eagle's nest, but missed the bird. That wish of mine too, was fulfilled while leaving Sakha Niwas. Seeing the magnificent bird, was worth a dekko!

We went for boating which was an amazing experience for us, because we were allowed to row the boat!:D We saw a lot of water birds there, waiting to catch hold of their prey. ( After you're done with boating and fishing, don't forget to take a dip in the pesticides free water. )

We also went on a trekking expedition, starting at dawn. The route was initially parallel to a valley and then uphill. We reached the spot and sat down, encapturing the picturesque scene. I could be at peace with myself there.

When we went on our farm visit, we saw a variety of fruits and vegetables cultivated there. We were lucky (because of the time of our visit) to get the opportunity to eat the fresh, sweet strawberries.

Be it with friends, family or colleagues, this is one place where you can have an unforgettably memorable time..a different experience all together!!

P.S. I didn't have the time, but you can also try the mud bath, to experience a traditional spa. ;)
