We visited Sakha Niwas on February 07 for one night stay. We were four including my 11 months old son and 7 year old daughter. Our trip started on a very bad note. Our car broke down while climbing uphill before wai village. We gave it for repairing and reached Sakha niwas by a cab at around 5 pm. We were actually supposed to reach there by 1. In normal circumstances anyone can easily make a excuse of not providing lunch, since we were too late and couldn't contact the owners. But when you are at Sakha nivas there is no compromise with the guests comfort and convenience. We were welcomed by the owner Mr. Vijay More himself. We were too tired and hungry. He asked us to get fresh up and come for lunch. We found the room was very clean and spacious. It had two queen size very comfortable bed. We had our delicious lunch with chicken curry and dried chicken fry. After that we requested them to take us to the beautiful tapola lake. It was quite late, but still, they never said no for anything. It was 10 min hiking, we reached the beautiful tapola lake. The scenery is very difficult to explain here, but might be as beautiful as heaven, if it exists. We did kayaking and swimming. They own a small kayaking boat and a great Big diesel engine boat. After returning from awesome swimming, we had extremely tasty chicken leg barbeque. All our tiredness got vanished with super food and warm atmosphere in the resort. We immediately extended our trip for one more night. Next day after breakfast, we headed to the lake for mud bath, kayaking and swimming. In the lunch the veg menu was unexpectedly extraordinary. They made 5 types of vegetables curries. We would like to thank Mr. Vijay 's mom. She is very nice and amazing lady. She took a great care of my son's especial baby food and his comfort. A special thanks for making Modak and thalipeeth for us. Both nights we had barbeque and very satisfying dinner. Apart from great food, they made us very comfortable and provided homely atmosphere. The resort is beautiful and the owner are extraordinary helpful. I would like to mention special thanks to Ashish who never got tired by fulfilling our hundreds of demands. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing, phone and internet free world and enjoyable holiday, I would recommend Sakha Niwas to you without any doubt. We will surely come back. Thank you

We went to Sakha Nivas Agro Tourism in 3rd week of January. It takes about an hour from Mahabaleshwar. Though distance is not much, the roads are narrow and rough in some stretches, hence you have to go slow. But its all compensated for, by the exotic scenery offered by the Sahyadri ranges. We were greeted by Mr. Vijay himself. The resort itself is very simple but spacious and has a beautiful view of the valley. The rooms were neat and clean. The food is home-made and we liked it a lot. There is a barbeque in the evening and we were offered both veg and nonveg options. As for the activities, the primary attraction for us was the Koyna backwaters. The water is at few minutes walking distance through the village. The water is so pristine and clear that you just have to stand still on the edge and you will see small fishes swimming by. We were taken for a nice boat ride, then later we did kayaking and swimming. Mr. Vijay ensures that everyone wears a life jacket and himself accompanies the guests at all times to ensure safety. We had a fun mud-bath on the river banks. In the morning we went for a short trek on the backside mountains. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and we would love to revisit especially in the monsoons since there would be much more to do. My suggestion would be, to not have any false expectations and go with an open mind to truly enjoy this place.

I went to tapola four times, three times in Shakha agro niwas. First time I was on solo trip, second time I suggested my HR team for office trip, third time with friends and fourth time with my family. Tapola is a very calm and beautiful place. Water activities are awesome. Shakha niwas is very nice place to stay, hosts are very polite and serve their guests very well. I will recommend you to visit Tapola.

I am very happy to share our pleasant experience at Sakha Agro Niwas for our recent trip. We were group of 24, mixed group of kids, young and elderly members. I visited Sakha Niwas 6 years back and had good memories of the hospitality, so proposed to take our group to this place again. I must say that our experience this time was better than last time. Uma and Vijay has expanded and developed the place nicely. We choose 4 tents and 2 rooms, all are newly built. Very spacious and clean. Each one has connected bathrooms with 24/7 hot water. We were well received and served hot food. In the evening, we enjoyed the boating in Koyana back waters. Ms Uma is very good in taking care of the guest. It gives homely feeling. She always check the feedback and ask for suggestions for next days food course. We did change the breakfast and lunch menu, she happily fulfil our wish. Early morning mountain trekking with Vijay was thrilling. On 31st night, new year celebration was awesome, DJ music and dance floor was well set, we dance and played game till late night. All of my friends and family members were happy and satisfied with the services. I recommend this place for the people who loves outing in nature, away from city busy life, mobiles and internet world.
