You can rest here and do nothing. The rooms were superb. The staff was very nice staff. You can take up various activities. Paragliding in being trained here or you may also go for a tandem ride with an expert. It is close from Pune and Mumbai. Good Weekend destination.
We booked the cottages - these are recommended for families and couples, since the rooms in the main bungalow won't give you privacy and looked like these were occupied by regular Paragliders, who use this place as their paragliding base.

On our visit, only two cottages were occupied - one by us and one by another couple. We chose the ground floor cottage - no view, but it opened in the garden, our daughter loved the steps and we could sit outside the cottage absorbing the sounds of the birds and amidst the cool breeze. It was awesome. The cottages were fairly big - one double bed, one single bed, a small pantry area and an attached bathroom. I would describe this to be better than some of the other guesthouses I have stayed in. It was nice and well maintained. The only problem is the light. They use 5 watt yellow bulbs and there were three such lamps - not quite enough, but its okay for the few hours you will spend indoors before sleeping.

They have paragliding. Weekdays Rs 2,500 per person and Weekend Rs 3,000 per person. Amazing place for couples to sit and relax. Away from noise life, enjoy silence and peace with beautiful lake around (Kamshet dam). Spacious room, very reasonable.

Best Experience: Peace, well done resort. Neat. Clean Rooms.

Worst Experience: The road from Old Mumbai Pune Highway to Kamshet, Uksan Village is really bad. The 12 km stretch is bumpy. Took us 30-45 mins the travel that 12 Km. But at the end, it was worth it.

it was a nice weekend break from new bombay.. the journey was not very comfortable as the road wasnt too great.... the hotel is small and quite interesting... the decor also in some ways arty.... the rooms could be a little more well kept and the service from cooks and waiters a little more sophisticated but maybe the place is a backpackers delight and hence the service basic.... the only activity that one can partake is in paragliding and thats real fun...

Best Experience: paragliding.....

Excellent place to wind down from your daily stress. The best feature of the hotel is that you have no cell phone connectivity in the rooms. Hence, one place where finally your Boss cant reach you :)
Food is simply just too good. You will lick your hands away. Saturday nights should just not be missed, when the Tandoor is fired up..
The Only down side is the cleanniness of the rooms and the property in general. I feel they should pay little more attention on this point.

Best Experience: Afternoons and nights on the Hammocks are too good.. Just destress away listening to the birds and swaying to the winds which is in abundance.

Worst Experience: No worst experience as such..

Really enjoyed our stay at Native Place. Though we did not do any of paragliding, we had a great time just relaxing at the property. Enjoyed some good walks around the lake, in the nearby hills, to the neighbouring village. Also, the simple yet delicious home cooked food was excellent!

Best Experience: The great food. The serenity & beauty of Vadivali Lake

Worst Experience: The dirt road to get to the property from the highway

Native place used to be an enjoyable place, but service and attitude has degraded over last 2-3 years. In my second visit I found that It has become too commercial with less attention towards guests. The place has lost its previous warmth and dont deserve to be so expensive.

Myself, wife and my daughter visited this resort, in monsoon and stayed for 2 days in Nirvana cottage. There were no adventure activities going on during this period. To stay in this place you really need to have the art of doing nothing, else you will get bored here. There are no newspapers, no television, no telephones. The road to the resort from Kamshet city is really in bad condition and it takes about 40min from Kamshet. The one good thing that happened was the bonding between myself and my daughter became much much more stronger after 2 days of stay.

Best Experience: Ambience is excellent, good food, good place to spend quality time with each other. It might be good for adventure activities which we missed it due to monsoon season.

Worst Experience: The cost of Rs. 3800 per night seems to be bit on higher side for absolutely no facilities. Service on the 2nd day of our stay which was Monday really deteriorated, we were the only guest left. There is no intercom in rooms so you need to go all the way to kitchen to get any service.
