We stayed here for 3 days and had a really good time. Very nice for family vacation in Shrivardhan. During our tele conversation with Mr. Mahadkar (Owner) he said "don't come expect that you will ring the bell and person will come and you will order him. This is our part of home which we are giving you to stay and so far no one has gone unsatisfied."
Indeed this place it nurtured by him like a small baby. He is very professional, straight forward and very polite when you will talk to him.
Here are some of the Pros and Cons:
1. Location - Very close to main shrivardhan beach. You can walk down to beach in less than 5-10 mins. This place will give you a warm and cozy feel of Konkan.
2. Food - Here they serve very delicious and home made food. Local women cook food for you but you have to order in advance as they serve you fresh fish from market. But you will get Tea anytime.
3. Rooms - Rooms are adequately sized with Air Conditioners and well equipped clean toilets.
4. Tariff - Very affordable to pocket.
5. Service - Rooms service is ok. Ok because you will not need something extra or luxurious once you are inside the premises.
1. If you are expecting a fancy place it is not.
I will try to cover all details , so that if any one can be benefited it will serve the purpose of writing the review :-)
- Travel Details :
(Pune-Harihareshwar-Shrivardhan-Divyegar-Pune). I covered all these places in 3 days patch , its sufficient and believe me if you have a day more , stay and relax in Niwara and connect with you in peaceful ambiance.
- Accommodation :
I will not be lying if I will say its Home Away from Home. Resort has 8 cottages and with owner residing in same campus. They are so beautifully placed , that privacy is maintained completely.
Private open space attached to each cottage , so that you can sit back , relax and enjoy the beauty.
- Inside Cottage (The bed/washroom/mattress/basic amenities) :
Everything is so well managed, neat and clean that you cannot complain about it. Few rooms you can accommodate 5 people with extra charges and sofa cum bed are there to make it a sounding sleep. Towels, toiletries,beds, washroom are neat and clean, so one don't have to worry about it.
TV, mosquito repellent, big wardrobe, water bottles are there inside the cottage.
I personally found it up to mark and no reason to complain.
- Outside Cottage :
Every cottage have private space outside which can be used to sit back, relax with yourself or family. It is all surrounded by trees, so you will enjoy the ambiance. Believe me its all green outside.
Trees include Coconut, banana and other beautiful ones.
- Food :
You will get every meal except lunch in the resort. Lunch need to be arranged on self but breakfast, tea, evening snacks and dinner available and that too home made and fantastic.
Order they take in morning because on daily basis they purchase food stuffs like vegetables, fishes etc for dinner. I must say try food in resort and enjoy in peace.
Best part is they serve to each cottage in open place outside , so its more like a private breakfast, evening snacks or dinner. Believe me you will enjoy it , I did a lot.
Quantity is good and price is moderate , I cannot say its highly prices. Best to say it is evenly prices with no extra load on pocket. Its just superb.
- Staff :
All ladies staff and they are very polite. They greet very well, we called them aunty or mausi politely, always responded with smiling faces.
- Distance from Beach :
5 mins by walk and 2 mins by drive.
- How is beach :
Superb and nicely managed. Neat clean, water sports, places to sit and relax.
- How far is Divyegar :
16 kms from Shrivardhan but do visit it. Drive away is mind blowing, you will drive parallel to sea and view is just mind blowing. Make old songs on and enjoy the drive.
I visited on 15-17 January with wife, son, brother, mom and dad - Planning to visit soon again before summers.
Hope you liked the review and I assume my efforts of writing review will be beneficial to some one of you.
God Bless You (Keep Smiling)
I being there for 2 days with my family. Really very good experience !!!!!
Resort is very clean , well maintained and quite place.
Working staff and owner both are very co-operative.
Food was yummy and kids like this place very much....we will surely re-visit this place.
Cleanliness - in terms of room, the bed sheets, pillows and blankets provided. Wash room cleanliness comparable to a 5-star hotel. Likewise is the surrounding. You will love it. Clean surrounding is Niwara's USP according to me.
Food: Staff provide breakfast and dinner on order. So you can order as you wish to.
Basic amenities: Clean surrounding and hot water as and when you need it.
Cutliers: As you use at your home.
Location: in terms of beach (very near by - 500 meters).
Location: Shrivardhan, there isn't much to see but if your intention is to stay at a serene location without doing much, then this is the place for you.
Services: it is managed by an elderly couple with staff under them so the services aren't typical of a hotel service which is surely manageable.
Staff: We loved the staff, they are were soft-spoken and caring. Clear on what they can provide and what they can't.
Stayed for 2 days in two rooms (with sitout areas) consisting of five adults and two children. Room cost Rs 9000 and probably two breakfast and two dinners with one evening tea costed Rs 4000.
Food on order so you need to plan out. Not possible to order dishes as per your mood. This is purely understandable from owner's point of view.
Checked in resort for 1 night. Resort surprisingly is beautiful. After a tiring journey from Mumbai, the beauty of the place makes you fresh. They don't serve lunch. For dinner or breakfast, you need to notify them in advance. We ordered dinner, it was simple and tasty. Don't miss the modaks, they were simply awesome.
They have 4-5 rooms. Rooms were maintained in a good shape and were spacious. Also, they change the bedsheets twice in a day which was very interesting. If in srivardhan, then don't miss this place. We loved it. Very hygienic, beautiful and spacious property.
