Quaint charm

by KomalMikail on 07 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

Phone signal is absent completely (no beep beep), there is no noisy TV, no distracting WIFI, no egoistic AC. But there is a gorgeous verandah, a charming tree house, hammocks to lounge in, heaps of board games and books to browse. You choose! All your time is yours alone in this magnificent bungalow! It is most certainly on our 'to be returned to' list. Getting there - 20 minutes walk from the Matheran Market - OR 65 minutes from Dasturi Car Park. We walked it all the way and had a porter carr...

Front facing rooms are spacious and beautifully done and with a view. Ground Floor rooms are more qui...

Food is good but not outstanding. It is just that overall feeling that everything comes from early 20th century. Grandma could pop into your room at any point of time. Take a walk in the forest or a horse ride to the cliffs. Enjoy relaxation when back.

Neo-Colonial Charm

by Trevor W on 17 Dec 2016 (Solo Traveller)

Verandah in the Forest is a colonial-style property notable for, well, its verandah, where breakfast and (a nice touch) afternoon tea are served. The rooms are large and comfortable with interesting period features. However, they have no television, phone or aircon (the latter probably not required), and wifi is available only in the office. The hotel has a modest garden, but no pool. Dinner (you will probably want to eat in in the evening rather than try and find your way to and from the centre...
