Cons : there isn't any wifi access available in the property, they do have wifi but only for the personal use of the owners.Network in this place is an issue as well. They take the money upfront which is unheard of in any hotel business Food is very average, since it's a farm stay food should have been the star but it not upto the mark.The only vegetable that was nice was bhindi ki sabji, rest all was ok. Farm tour was nice and the person was evry knowledgeable so that we enjoyed along with the activity in the farm They have stopped zipline and basket weaving..so essentially while they would be selling their property on a array of activities but you can only do warli painting, pottery and hurdle activity

From Mumbai we drive 3 hours and reached there. We took machan room like it is on bamboo and stand on like our room is in tree. We feel that way. Other rooms have different concept. Lots of trees surrounding us birds and peace area. We took lunch dinner and breakfast which was too good, taste was amazing as we r Jain they served us very good food. One things noticeable that all ingredients they use for cooking is from their farm. Food was superb. They served us starfruits fresh juice. Which is very good. in afternoon they give visit to their farm and fun activities like rop cilmb. N rop walk. Each cottages have swing and that is very good. You feel relaxed stay Must visit Prices are up-to the mark But for enjoy nature and natural environment. If you're foreigners must try this atleast one night stay.

Searching far and wide across the web, I was trying to find a weekend getaway for the long Easter weekend with my family. My search culminated in a beautiful farm stay around 2.5-hour drive from Thane – Save Farm, Gholwad, Tal: Dahanu, Dist: Palghar, Maharashtra, INDIA – 401702 We reached on 2nd April 2021 Friday sweaty afternoon. My first feel of Save farms was of walking into the arms of mother nature. It was stunning beautiful, evergreen…. the merciless April sun seemed surprisingly cheerful. The lemon-flavored welcome drink was refreshing, we could feel its coolness down our guts. We checked into our cozy loft hut. Save Farm has a variety of innovative stay options including bamboo huts, machan huts, coconut log hut and more! The loft hut we chose is intended for a family of up to 5 members. We were just three of us so had quite some extra space. Personally, for my Amma and me the highlight of the house was the swing right outside the house. Dad’s highlight was the sweet yummy chickoos we were served every day of our stay! This place serves you a simple yet delicious Maharashtrian cuisine. Travelling during corona times can be scary. However, I would say this place is perfect, the huts are away from each other with a natural social distance maintained among guests. The dining hall reserves a table for your family by the room numbers and food is served hot in casseroles. No buffet, no queues, no risk! Our menu over the two-day stay included: Breakfast: Poha, Misal pav, Vegetable upma Lunch & dinner: Paper soft chapatis, rice, pulao, paneer sabzi, puranpolis, thalipeeth, batata wadas, daal, salad, chickoos, papayas, shrikhand, alu wadi, chickoo pickle, aamras, buttermilk. The dining hall has a foot pedal operated wash basin and a hair dryer turned into a hand dryer (love that innovation 😊) again foot pedal operated. Day 1 we were taken for a farm tour in the afternoon, it lasted about 2 hours and will forever be etched in our memories. The farm is simply huge with a huge variety of trees and plants – chickoos, Jamun, Mangoes, bananas, papaya, pumpkins, brinjal, mulberries, peppermint - just name it and you will find it. The farm is rich and very well maintained. Our guide Mr. Gangadhar is a book on farming himself! He explained about the farming practices, rainwater harvesting, humidifier chamber for plants, planting techniques, sustainability, organic methods of farming, irrigation techniques, prevention of soil erosion, making fertilizers, vermicomposting, aquaculture practices. It was a robust educational tour. For children there is also a rope climbing activity within the farm. Day 2 we attended a workshop to learn warli drawings. Warli is one of the oldest forms of Indian folk art and has its origins in the Warli region of Maharashtra. In the ancient times warli paintings were painted on mud walls using rice paste. These drawings usually depict scenes of human figures engaged in activities like hunting, filling water, cooking, goatherds rearing goats etc. Our dear Bhavana Tai taught us these drawings. Bhavana Tai is the whole and soul of Save Farms, she manages around the office, supervising the kitchen, dining area and the souvenir shop taking care of all hospitality measures. She is very kind and always greets everyone with a warm smile. She is supported by Mr. Anil for taking care of guests. Bhavana Tai also taught us to weave mat using dried leaves. There is a souvenir shop that sells fresh farm produce, Warli painted home decors, plants, coconuts, Warli painted t-shirts and a lot more! Mr. Save is usually around to interact with guests and to take us through a tour of his workshop of beautiful handicrafts. His son Mr. Aditya Save manages the farm and in his own words is the only person in the family with no artistic skills. He does make up for it by his extreme humility and friendly attitude! Mr. Save’s daughter Ms. Aarti Save has a great talent with warli painting and many of her creations are available on sale. The Save family members are very down to earth, the kind of people who leave an impact on you, inspire you to make our community a better place. I have seen the way they interact with their employees with a lot of respect, each employee is invested in his/ her role at the farm. It is a big family that awaits you with open arms. Our family will surely be visiting again!

Took leave from office after a year. Needed a relaxing 2 night stay away from Mumbai hustle. Zeroed down on Tarpa bcoz it was ticking all boxes. Since I was going with parents 65+ in age and sister, tarpa has activities planned which will keep guests busy. Its a 30 acre chiku farm designed to provide all the relaxation u need. Farm tour, adventure activities, Ducks, rabbits and EMU. 2 nights are more than enough. Not far from Mumbai. Took us 2.5 hrs. Also bought lot of veggies from the farm. Organic and cheap. Don't expect luxury living. But the cottage is very comfortable. We stayed in shetkari NIWAS. Also u can visit Chikala beach and Bordi beach. Overall I will give 5/5 for this stay. Kudos to Tarpa Team. Keep up the good work.

visited the farm for 2 nights and 3 days with a family. As a precaution all rooms were not available during this covid time. the experience was just great. rooms were made with maximum local material. greatly eco friendly. the food was home cooked and made from locally grown organic food...the service and attention was personal, the environment so peaceful and tranquil. the visit to the farm and bit of fun games was welcoming, the interest and passion of the owners in agriculture and innovation and use of natural resources was in the air. the camp fire arrangement in the evening in cold weather was welcome and the loads of cocoanut water welcome all the time. the chikoo achar was welcome and so was the actiivity of warli painting, clay works, was a great break for family time
