Amidst the lush greens of Matheran, sheltered from the chaos of the city, Radha Cottage is your go-to place to unwind after a hectic week, or just spend quality time with your loved ones. Laden with archaic grace, the 125-year-old heritage property of Radha Cottage guarantees a royal yet welcoming experience. The prime bungalow was originally the dwelling of Sir Pherozeshah Mehta. The 3rd president of Congress, fondly known as the Lion of Bombay, whose statue stands proud in front of the BMC HQs. The vintage aesthetic of the bungalow has been preserved with only a few modifications done to cater to the requirements of this day and age. The noteworthy wooden fittings illuminate the vibe of aristocratic nobility. Furthermore, the one-acre-wide spacious property, brimming with greenery, guarantees a grandiose stay. Since the property is about a kilometre from the unrest of the market, guests can relish the feeling of tranquillity and calm. The sought after 7-point-circle, including Sunrise Point and One Tree Hill Point, starts not more than 5 minutes away, and guests can be enthralled with the charm of Matheran. The little chowk, with its romantic aura, is an excellent place for couples to enjoy a dreamy walk. On returning back to Radha Cottage, guests can savour the rich Maharashtrian cuisine, the pièce de résistance of which, is Puran Poli. One can enjoy the ambience of antiquity while sipping on a relaxing cup of tea. The exquisite vintage aura combined with the pristine element of nature is sure to provide an enchanting experience.

It is a heritage property in the midst of green forest. Nice property about 20min walk from Matheran main market. Cottages are well maintained. Food is like home made with balanced choice of veg and non-veg. Good chef. It will be good if the washrooms have exhaust fan. Hot water is there for bath however better to have hot water connection in wash basin also.

This is my 6th trip to Radha cottage. I go there every year and it is like second home to us. Cottages are clean and big. Service is quick as staff gives 100% effort here in terms of service quality. They have one restaurant in middle. Food is the highlight for us. I get a feel of yummy home made food with lots of options. Hats off to chef. We love the location as well. Overall the best stay in matheran.

This resort contains of cottages from about 1907 which are very well maintained. You can see the original mosaic tiles on the floor which is impressive. Everything is very clean and the staff, especially Mr Kunal, always helpful. We have probably chosen the best accommodation in Matheran and are very happy with our stay :) The food is also great!

माथेरान म्हंटल की निसर्गरम्य वातावरण, मिनी महाबळेश्वर म्हणून प्रसिद्ध. अशा ठिकाणी फिरायला जाताना राहण्याची योग्य सोय झाली आणि मनासारखं जेवण मिळालं तर फिरण्याचा आनंद द्विगुणित होतो. राधा कॉटेज माथेरान येथे अप्रतिम जेवण, सोबत साजूक तुपातील स्पेशल पुरण पोळी एकदा प्रत्यक्ष अनुभवायलाच हवा. Matheran is famous as Mini Mahabaleshwar. If you are looking for comfortable accommodation, amazing food with special maharashtrian Puran Poli go to Radha Cottage at matheran. For different experience.

I had a wonderful experience at Radha cottage, located in the middle of a Matheran. The property was nice and green, with a serene atmosphere. The food was very good, with a mix of chicken and mutton dishes that were flavorful and tender. The dessert was very delicious, with a creamy texture and a sweet taste. The service was friendly and attentive, and the prices were extremly reasonable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone! 11/10 would go again!

A friends gathering setup in the comforts of Radha Cottage was an amazing experience. All the staff at property worked hard to make our visit absolutely memorable. The place is perfect blend of vintage and local and is located far from the buzz, a perfect retreat.

The perfect place to unwind after a month of yoga study in Pune. The hotel is beautifully located in the forest. Clean, beautiful room in a historic building. The best food I’ve had so far in India. Relaxing, welcoming outdoor space. Kunal is a great host. He helped me find beautiful natural areas for walking and arranged all my travel needs. I could not be more enthusiastic.
