Dongarmatha - as the name suggest, is on the hill top. It's an excellent place for nature lovers and the idea of designing it as an old fashion village is marvelous. It helps one to completely rejuvenate from the day to day routine. Being located on hill top, access to a jungle is a natural advantage and the owner himself being interested in nature, takes care of you during the trek. Some places around the place are easy to access, including the trek in the jungle where the famous waterfall originates. Overall an awesome place to visit frequently.

The place is nicely designed among a beautiful plantation, and lovingly managed by the owners. The staff is friendly and eager to help. The home-style food is yummy. The rooms and common areas are spotless clean. The peace is distributed only by the chirping of a countless birds. The kids enjoyed the open and safe surroundings, as well as the board games and innovative toys collected by the owners. A perfect place to slow down, relax and come back rejuvenated!

Dongarmatha Ecocare Centre. What can I say about this place? Dongarmatha loosely translated as the crest of the hill (Dongar = Hill and matha = crest.) As the name suggests this place is truly seated on the top of a small hillock. This eco-care resort sprawls over an area of 5 acres. The place is the perfect getaway for city folks like Pune and Mumbai. It has a small rustic cottage with multiple rooms that are very cozy and extremely beautiful. Free from the city pollution and noise, it offers complete tranquility by making you a part of the nature. Free from the modern world gadgets like an AC or the TV set, you truly appreciate the nature. Who needs a TV or an AC when you can have a mesmerizing overhead view of the forest and the river while the cool forest breeze tickles as you spend your evenings in the verandah? The sweet sounds of multiple species of birds is the best music that one can hear. You can engage yourself with the nature walks on the forest trails or explore the breathtaking waterfalls near the resort. Free from the hustle and bustle of the chaotic city life, a leisurely stroll amidst nature is the best stressbuster. For me, the highlight of the trip was to spot crocodiles near the Vasishthi River which is around 10kms from the resort. Although the resort is surrounded by dense trees, its completely safe from wild animals or dangerous serpents. This place is the brainchild of Mr. Mangesh, a dedicated and hardworking environmentalist. Mangesh has himself developed and sustained this property that is nothing less than a mini forest. He’s an expert on birds, critters and the wildlife. He has immense knowledge on the species of birds that visit his resort. He’s an extremely good and warm host. Mangesh will guide you as your friend. Full marks to his hospitality. Expect some really delicious konkani style food over there. All the cooking is done by a local village lady, so you can be assured that its authentic. Shraddha, the better half of Mr Mangesh, supervises all the cooking job. Just like Mangesh, she is an extremely good host and friendly. While you are there you should definitely try the herbal tea. All the ingredients and herbs of the tea are inhouse. You can even buy packets of the herbal tea to take home. Apart from the herbal tea, I enjoyed the BLUE tea as well. Yes, the tea is blue in color. Special thanks to little Vyom, Mr Mangesh’s kid who prepared offered us that tea. Vyom is a very sweet, well-mannered and intelligent kid who has tremendous knowledge on the surrounding flora and fauna. Lastly, this review would be incomplete without a special mention to Sumit (the helping staff) who was very soft spoken, patient, caring and hospitable. He made sure that we don’t have any problems while staying there. The cool kokum sharbat that he offered was really refreshing. How to get there: There are multiple routes from Pune. Route 1: Mulshi  Tamhini Mangaon Mahad  Khed  Dongarmatha Route 2 Via Banglore hwy: Pune Kapurhol  Bhor  Poladpur  Kashedi  Khed  Dongarmatha Route 3 Via Banglore hwy: Pune  Shirwal  Wai  Panchgani  Mahabaleswar   Poladpur  Kashedi  Khed  Dongarmatha The roads are mostly good, but due to the ongoing roadwork, there are patches of rough roads in between. Expect a few ghats on all the routes.

We visited Dongarmatha between December 22, 2019 to December 25, 2019. We should have stayed longer. You will fall in love with this place as soon as you checkin. The View from rooms, the cleanliness, the hosts, the staff and last but not the least FOOD, everything is awesome. While the rooms are not luxurious, but are very comfortable. The hosts Mangesh and Shraddha will leave no stones unturned to make your stay memorable. Even the support staff are super efficient and extremely warm. We will be back for sure and very soon.

I had a very refreshing time over a long solo weekend at Dongarmatha. The place is on a lovely hilltop with good views all around. There are many hikes that one can do nearby. Mangesh and Shradha and team are friendly hosts who ensure that the stay is comfortable! Mangesh is also a nature lover and it's a nice experience to walk around with him discussing moths and insects! Dongarmatha is a beautiful getaway for solo/ family trips who want to spend time with nature in a simple unspoilt way...
