We were two couples, from Mumbai, out for a weekend, away from the Mumbai madness, and as per reviews selected Normal Cottages, for a two nights stay. Let me say that it was a perfect choice, as the location was convenient, away from the commercial buzz of Navgaon Beach, and near to Awaz and Kihim Beaches Regarding the resort, it's a well maintained, clean, with lush lawns, a clean pool, and very sumptuous food. Service was very good and the owner Mr. Saraf is a very hands on person, so always available, friendly and ready to help you with any requirement Its a great resort, peaceful and green, and just the place to spend quality time, out with your family. For Jains, Normal serves Jain food also, and is a pure veg facility, the food being so delicious, one is really happy and contented. The resort also has a well equipped games room, rooms are clean, with hot water, AC and a TV, with a nice sit out area to soak in those cool pleasant evenings and the early morning peacefulness. We did go for the water sports, great fun, but note that the best place for the same is Navagio beach, though the same is available at the other beaches. I have already booked Normal cottages for January, as we have international guest, and this is certainly the right place to take your friends.

Owners and staff were very good and caring. Location wise near by jetty and beaches. Rooms especially bathroom was very small. In room dressing area was not convenient. Activities were very less. Just to relax, it was a good place. But those who want to play or do some activities then I shall not recommend about it.

My wife, 5 year old son and I stayed at Normal Cottages for one night on 5th December. Overall we felt very refreshed at the end of 2 days that we spent here Pros:. 1) Place is extremely clean. Owner and his daughter are personally involved in ensuring the floors, kitchen, rooms, common areas remain spick and span. They request guests to take off footwear before entering restaurant. Kitchen cabinets, utensils are all maintained and taken care of like we would do in our homes. 2) Lawns are very well kept. Owner is passionate about gardening and we noticed that a large majority of plants were in full bloom and had beautiful flowers. 3) Food - From point 1, you will understand that food is prepared in very hygienic conditions. Food is tasty as well. Masalas are prepared fresh and taste is very good. Oil is less. Food is served hot. 4) Locality - It is a quiet locality. Hardly 200 mts from main road so very convenient. At the same time, we didn't hear a single vehicle travelling on main road. Kihim beach is 4 kms away. Awas beach is also 4 kms away. Awas is a pristine beach and not much crowd comes there. Avoid Kihim, unless you like to do water sports, eat peanuts, do a buggy ride, etc. 5) Integrity - I felt at no point, the owners said something and did not honor it. They were straight, clear and polite Cons:. 1) Flexibility - The management of the premises works like clock work. Tea/Breakfast is served till a particular time, then lunch and then evening snacks. This is probably what helps the management maintain the required quality. Not everyone will appreciate this. Some guests may want more flexibility from a smaller property like this one. 2) No drinking in the open - Owner clarified that they do not allow drinking in the open, but one can have booze in their room in the sit out facing the lawn, which is actually the best place for that. 3) Room Service- There is no room service. 4) Food is pure veg. 5) Not for couples on a honeymoon and bachelors out on a booz trip I would highly recommend visiting this place to families, senior citizens, groups. It was also nice to see the daughter at a young age driving the management under her father;s guidance. We would definitely like to visit again.

Normal Cottage - My first visit to Alibuag and Normal cottage both with my family. What a lovely place. Neat and clean. Personal attention by owners of the property for stay and food and sightseeing at Alibaug. They take care of everything. The kitchen is actually more neat and clean than our own home kitchen. The staff is humble. The rooms are neat and clean. Best thing is that the owner welcomes all suggestions that can make the place more and more comfortable. The play area has all the games mostly that you find in a 5 star hotel. The TT board and carrom and all are of best quality. The food is as if we are dining at home. And nice change of variety in food to suit the guests. Nicely maintained swimming pool and play area. Each and every small requirement of guests is taken care of. Nice lawn and flowers around. In brief if I would develop a farm house for myself it would be no better than this. So I thank Mr. Saraf for saving my money. Now I can visit your property whenever I want to have the experience. My kids are telling that this place is as if we have come to our own Farm house. Lol. So guys if anyone is thinking for relaxation and likes neatness and cleanliness this property is No. 1. Just book it.

This was our 2nd time in this resort and the stay is as expected, amazing. Food is too good and 5* for hospitality. Will surely come again. I also recommend this to people going for Alibag, since this is close to Awas and Mandwa beach. This is perfect for people from Mumbai as its near to Mandwa jetty which is well connected to gateway of India by jetty.
