We halted at the Dark Forest Retreat, Amboli while travelling to Goa from Pune. They have plenty of cottages. All of which are clean and spacious. The bathrooms are clean and there is 24hrs hot water. You do not need an AC here. There are swings at the balconies that offer an amazing view of the vast mountain range. The forest is nearby, but its advisable not to venture out alone at night. It's not called "Dark Forest" for no reason :) Also, if you are using GPS, pin to the Amboli police station, as its given wrong in the Google Maps. They also provide meals and tea. We opted for vegetarian thalis. The food was home cooked, fresh and delicious. The staff of this place is very friendly and humble. Special thanks to Mr. Arjun for taking good care of us and for the tasty food. Loved the stay and definitely recommend to travellers who like nature and peace.
