Kashid - The Best Beach Nr. Alibaug
We didn't have a booking, hence tried few home stays like Friends, etc. but was not comfortable. Then thought of Prakruti which is the costliest of all resorts within Alibaug-Kashid & Murud. But they were full, but some locals guided us to Hotel Sai Palace which is very near to Prakruti resort. When you reach Kashid beach and take a left turn for Prakruti, which is on kind of a hill-top, after Prakruti climb a little more (yes that's right this is situated little above Prakruti on the hill-top) and to your right you will see this resort. They have a new well built property and an old property, but unfortunately due to peak season we got the old property. The rooms were very mediocre but the direct view of the sea from the 2nd floor room that we got was splendid!!!
Food is really good - home made kind of. Try their Paneer Chilli OR Chicken Chilli (or both : -)) - it's the best that you could get in Kashid.
They have just 2 or 3 room boys, very well behaved, courteous, typical localites and very helpful.
And wow, what a beach is Kashid beach. Clean, complete privacy and full of solace. We didn't have a pre-booking but thought of going on a long weekend trip to Alibaug. The drive from Mumbai to Alibaug is a good one, though there are some rought patches in between when you pass through some of the villages.
But once you cross Alibaug and go towards Kashid it's a beautiful drive with greenery on your left side and the sea on the right side. You have to stop by this stretch to get a great feeling of this view from the road.
