Native Place Reviews
I visited hotel native palace with my friend and the overall experience of our stay was an average one. The basic purpose of visiting this hotel was satisfied i. E I got some "me" time there. The hotel is in the plush greenery and in the proximity of vadival lake.
This is my first visit. Rooms are spacious and very neat. Bathrooms and toilet are very well-maintained and clean. Food is delicious especially breakfast. The location was superb. Staff are very helpful and friendly and they are providing excellent service. Overall, a very pleasant stay. I would like to visit again.
The photos seen in the net were as same in reality. Best hotel for a long stay and I enjoyed it very much. Great servants and good service, also give their best always. The price of the hotel is affordable. I will be back again soon if possible.
This was the hotel where I feel myself in home. The facilities were up to the mark and all the facilities are there. It was really such a good hotel where you can stay with ease. I would like to recommend you this hotel for stay. The reception and food was fantastic.
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.
Food was bad, the booking was a hassle and had to followup many times to confirm the booking, the rooms was damp and cold (we travelled in Jan)...all in all a not so good experience
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...
location is good ,very good. You have to explore near by places on ur own
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.

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.
The over all experience was good .This is not a typical resort with a check in counter etc .The whole formality was done in a very informal way . We wanted to shift to Nirvana cottgaes which we were able to do .The Nirvana cottage are definately better & bigger then the normal rooms though bit costly . Teh food was very homely type & some veg curry served was quite good taste wise .
What day is it? Now, the cynical among you, particularly those who claim to know me better than most, will likely put this apparent brain fade down to overindulgence in fermented substances, a pastime I have been known to partake in on more than one occasion. But no, that’s not it. I mean, ok, if it was just me asking the question then maybe. The same could be said about a couple of my compadres without too much stretching of the imagination. But everyone said it! Everyone at some point said “What day is it?” The real reason is simple, that Native Place is officially rated a chill zone! It must be built on some mystical cool karma lay line convergence or something! Every man woman and child, every visitor, every living thing that ventures into its realms takes on this laid back attitude – hell, even the bugs are too chilled to bother anyone! So there you have it. What better place to be you might ask? Honestly, nowhere! Nowhere that is if your intention is to get a TATA truck load of airtime in on your paraglider in the middle of winter while all your mates back home whinge about the cold and rain, how they can’t seem to get a decent curry anymore and Tony Blair! We hit Kamshet in November. Six of us; Scott the “dontwannabee” Yank, loud, proud and the most knowledgeable Paramotorist I know. He’s been dodging rockets in the troubled Middle East so long he’s started jumping when someone farts! He’s definitely in need of The Chill. Next it’s Guy, Clanky to his mates that can run faster than him. A long time PPL and an even longer time gadget freak, Guys had his fair share of stress this year and is “getting back on the horse” after nearly meeting the great acro pilot in the sky after a scary spin. Next up is Bob. Affectionately known as Lobbitt, Chunky or more recently Vindaloo Bob! Bob is the salt of the earth and it’s really him I have to thank for getting me into PG in the first place. We learned the hard way and had the most fun I can remember. I prised him away from his gorgeous Irish beauty to get some chill with the gang. Cheers Breegey! Following on next, its Roger and his better half Christine. Two of the nicest people I know, even if they do talk a bit funny! Rog is currently doing his bit for the paragliding industry by buying a glider from each manufacturer! Most commendable! Christine is the gorgeous, patient, supportive, funny half of the combo. A great cook and a not half bad dancer too. They are both on a mega Chill mission right now and Kamshet fitted the bill perfectly. Last and most definitely least, yours truly! Every show needs its Punch and it seems like this is the only crowd willing to put up with me right now. I’m lovingly referred to as “Fat Git” by my illustrious friends these days. Don’t ya just love ‘em? Enough! Onwards and upwards as my old Dad used to say! Sanjay & Astrid deserve medals for what they’ve achieved over the last few years since I fist met them. Sanjay deserves a medal for sticking with his dream. Astrid deserves a medal for making sure that dream never faltered. They are a formidable team and their love for what they believe in shines through in everything they do. Supporting them is a great team. Sky-god Yogi, or “Mr anti gravity” as he came to be known, Ravi, Manoj and all the other boys too numerous to remember by name are all, well, so cool! They know their stuff and I’ve never seen so many pilots so skilled at the local trick of high wind launches. (Sanjay has an off day now and then!) Stick with them and pay attention. These boys will show you how to master the conditions here! The first time I came to Kamshet I spent some time walking back up to take off cos I wasn’t paying attention. Stick close to Yogi and you’ll learn that his “anti gravity boots” don’t really exist; rather he just knows this place so well and is in touch with the conditions on an almost subconscious level. And when you get off! Wow! The conditions are great! I don’t need to describe them all here. Everything Sanjay says on his website about sites and conditions is bang on! We flew almost every day. The days we didn’t fly were by choice and not because of weather. Everyone achieved their own personal goals and frankly, what more can you ask for. On top of that throw in some of the nicest people you could meet, the best food and drink, and more sunshine than you can throw a stick at, and you can’t get much better than Native Place. So stop wondering about whether it’s worth the long trip. It is worth it and it’s not so long! (I had a girlfriend who used to say that!) Chris Sowerby
We had been there for a day picnic. A friend had booked it to celebrate her son\'s 10th birthday. The place is good. Ideal location to unwind. However, their website looks better than what it actually is.
