Day 1. The Viki Holiday Home, Ganpatipule

The Viki Holiday Home, Ganpatipulesource:

Over the years there has been a need for an economical, homely yet well developed lodging for visitors to Malgund-Ganpatipule and Viki Holiday Home has developed the land into a lovely bungalow cottage which is rented out. HolidayIQ Traveller BongNo shares, “Rooms were clean and well-maintained. Service was excellent and the highlight was the delicious vegetarian food that was available on prior request (you have to inform at least 4-5 hours in advance). A great place for families to stay if you are ok with the restrictions/limitations - no smoking/drinking, no washing sand in the bathrooms, no running hot water, no generator back-up. Also non-vegetarian food is not available on the premises but there are no restrictions on eating it inside the rooms. Best Experience:  Warm friendly service. The rooms are clean and well-maintained; you can rent 1 room only or the entire 3-room apartment (if available), really good home-cooked food; our hostess offered us a platter of traditional homemade Maharashtrian sweets on Diwali day - they were delicious.”

Day 2. Atithi Parinay Homestay, Ratnagiri

Maachli, Malvansource:

HolidayIQ Traveller Nain Sade shares, “It was wonderful location by near hotel. Customer service / reception staff are very friendly and professional. Small and well furnished room with all basic amenities, free wifi with good speed & perfect air conditioner made me to came back for one more visit. I would definitely recommend this one for a short business trip.”

Day 4. Kannur Beach House, Kannur

Kannur Beach House, Kannursource:

HolidayIQ Traveller Rahul Sanadhya shares, “Our overall experience in this homestay was fantastic. The people there were very good. The homestay was clean and nice. It was very far away from the Bus Stand and Railway Station. The surroundings of the homestay were superb and very nice. The exterior was good and maintained well. The room allotted was neat, clean, spacious and well-maintained. Pillows, bed sheets and blankets were in clean condition. There was no TV in the room. There was a view of the river merging with the sea. Food served was very good and it was very much hygienic and tasty. They had sufficient varieties and was reasonably priced. There were no activities.”


Day 5. Nandan Farm, Sawantwadi

Nandan Farm, Sawantwadisource:

HolidayIQ Traveller Mahesh Deshpande shares, “The experience at Nandan farm was extremely great. The location of the homestay was excellent. Surrounded by greenery and pollution free environment, it greatly helps to rejuvenate yourself. If u r looking for a homestay option, Nandan farms is really great. The food from the home made kitchen was worth remembering. The host Amruta was very cordial and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay at Nandan Farms.”

Day 6. O’Nest, Ratnagiri

O’Nest, Ratnagirisource:

HolidayIQ Traveller Lad A shares, “It is located in beautiful surroundings which will be helpful to leave behind chaos of city life, which I think most positive thing for this resort. Resort building looks like house and is attractive and well-maintained. There is enough parking space. Rooms are quite comfortable but you need to get acquainted with humid climate in Konkan. Room has TV with cable connection having good number of channels. Housekeeping staff were highly cooperative. Sea Shore is not far from here, so you can enjoy it too. Food is extremely delicious, it has abundant use of coconut which is common in Konkan and this will rule your taste. Overall, price is not much. I'll recommend it for its food, location, services, etc.”

Day 7. Dwarka Resort, Sawantwadi

Dwarka Resort, Sawantwadisource:

HolidayIQ Traveller Sagar Jain shares, “We spent 2 days and 2 nights in Sawantwadi. We did not know what to expect in Dwarka Resort and were ultimately very impressed! Very nice host, very cosy room with a comfortable bed (a treat after the previous beds ) and balcony. Huge farm area and delicious food, with home-grown product. Only drawback is that it is good, 12km outside of Sawantwadi and are hard to come off without a car and driver.”
