We were a group of 4 couples along with our children between 3-7 years looking out for a peaceful vacation and break from the stressed city life during the long Independence weekend. After a long search for pure Veg resorts (Especially the ones that serve pure Jain food as majority of the group preferred Jain food) we came across Normal Cottages at Alibaug Since it was the Independence, week prices at other resorts were sky rocketing but we were pleased to get rack rates (Which is value for money from the resort. We were a little skeptical and had moderate expectations for the price we paid on our way to Alibaug. However, we were thrilled with the choice we made on reaching the resort It had a everything from a kids pay area, fully equipped games room, well maintained swimming pool, fully equipped reconditioned cottages, lush green landscape, convenience store at walking distance, market within 2 km and a wonderful host to make it a perfect family vacation. We had booked the cottages and were disappointed on missing out on the bigger (Group) accommodations available at the resort where the entire group can easily stay together (Don't miss on it if you plan to go in a group size of 8 to 15 people) I cannot complete the review without mentioning about the food and service extended at the dining hall. The entire staff was cooperative and considered every minute request to customize the cuisine made by us. The efforts of the owners along with the service staff (including the cook, a Marwari Maharaj from Rajasthan ensured we had an enriched experience and full value for every penny spent It is more like a home away from home! Will definitely visit again soon.
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.
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.
It was quite relaxing at Normal Cottages. We were given excellent service by the staff and the person at helm whose passion for making guests comfortable was seen in every bit of aspect, be it accommodation, dining, entertainment activities, sightseeing or gardening for that matter. Machan was good experience. Swimming pool too seemed to be in good shape, however we could not avail the fun of Machan & Pool as we were more busy in moving around the place to visit some excellent tourist attractions like Sculpture Gallery of world renowned Sculptor Late Karmarkar. The nearby beaches were energizing for morning walks and fresh Coconut water. Kitchen was spacious and peck clean like rooms. Food (Breakfast & meals) was tasty and was served hot with prompt service. We enjoyed playing TT & Carom. I recommend Normal Cottages which is hardly a 3 hour drive from Mumbai; although we went by road we plan to go by ferry from Gateway next time.
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.
