Weekend Stays From Mumbai is a series on places to stay for a weekend away from Mumbai. It focuses on the place of stay. Details about the destination are very limited.
Note: These are NOT sponsored posts. We paid for these stays and travel 🙂
Mahua Bagh, Nandgaon (Near Murud, Raigad)
Mahua Bagh is between Kashid and Murud, 10 km before Murud. It is a farm resort by the sea, on the Konkan coast. The beach is nothing to write about and is at a short walk from the resort. It is more rocky than sandy.
Fairly a large farm with cashew, chikoo, palm, and custard apple trees. There are about 10 or 12 rooms, built on the slopes of a hillock. Rooms are spacious and has large open terraces. At the time we stayed there, restaurant was in open air.
Food was good. So was the service.
We were also offered a complementary candle-light dinner, slightly away from the main restaurant area, which was a nice experience.
Perfect for a peaceful, one-night weekend getaway. Great for a reading holiday.
Mahua Bagh is about 140 km from Mumbai via Panvel, Alibaug, and Kashid. After crossing Nandgaon, look for the Mazgaon bridge. Around 300 m after the bridge, take the mud road toward right and drive till you reach the resort.
Nearby places of Interest: Murud Janjira sea fort and Phansad Wild Life Sanctuary.
