The car travel is decent and about a 3hr journey. The road is not up-to the mark in terms of quality. Most of the part was under construction. Ferry travel is also a option, you can take a bike in the ferry (From Bhaucha Dhakka only)They charge you about 150 for bike.
An excellent and huge property nestled in tiny Mapgaon and very close to Kihim. This is the place to be in case you looking for a quite and peaceful vacation after a long drive or maybe a long day of going around places. As always my reviews have been long and descriptive. I will keep up to it this time as well with a happy one.
Access - The roads leading towards Alibaug from Mumbai have improved to a good extent. Few patches where road widening is in progress maybe a spoiler but we managed to reach in 2. 5 hrs. The inner road leading to resort maybe a bit bumpy though. Doesn't matter as you will soon be at peace and lazing around.
We travel to Alibaug by NH17 highway. It was very good experience of travelling. Ane can reach Alibaug via Pen (30 km away), which is on the Mumbai (78 km away) Goa road. From Mumbai, one can reach Alibaug by travelling on the Mumbai-Goa highway (NH-17) till Wadkhal (or Vadkhal) and taking the right fork from Wadkhal, the left fork being the road to Goa. The distance is approximately 108 km from Mumbai.
Bad roads and too much traffic take the boat from Gateway to Mandwa instead which is comfortable, convenient and fast. The boat takes you to Mandwa and onward to Alibaug by bus. Both A/C and non-ac boats are available however is does not make a difference as the cool sea breeze does not make you feel hot at all.
