We had a wonderful time at Utopia Farmstay recently. The booking was easily done with confirmation and directions being sent before the visit. Uttara was available on the phone on the day of our visit.

The cottages have a rustic feel and are spacious and comfortable. We could see the lake from our room which was a huge plus. Breakfast was home made and excellent especially the cake. Morning and evening tea were eagerly awaited.

Great place to escape from the city. Uttara and Advait would chat with us and other guests making us feel right at home. The vouchers for entry to Sula were highly appreciated. We will definitely come again and soon.

Thanks to Uttara and Advait for making our holiday memorable.

We found this property via LBB and were slightly hesitant as to how the place will be considering we have never experienced a farm-stay.. However, given the beautiful pictures and a couple of reviews, we decided to give it a shot and booked 2 nights (weekend) at this place.. It is an absolutely beautiful, serene, well-maintained, close to the nature sort of a place .. The interiors are completely rustic and give a different feel .. The owners - Uttara and Adwait along with their daughter Saunskruti handle everything so well - right from the check-in, breakfast, lunch / dinner, tour to the near by lake, vouchers for wine tasting at Sula, you name it and they will try their best to arrange it for you .. I had my birthday on one of the days there and they were so kind to get me a yummy cake and that too at York winery where I was spending my birthday eve .. Don't be hesitant about the no tv and wifi because you will love going out and interacting with the other guests .. I am still going gaga over my experience so you should also give it a try without a second thought ..

Love,
Deepika

Utopia farmstay was strongly recommend to us by a friend. Come Diwali, we started to scurry for options for a weekend getaway, rather late. Luckily, we could book the last 2 rooms for our stay. We travelled as a family of 5. Utopia had enough to offer to enthrall my 2 year old as well as captivate his grandparents. Many previously written reviewes will mention the artistically done up rooms and the unique decore, but what struck me most was the simplicity and sincerity on the whole. Both, Uttara and Adwait Kher (celebs in their own right, which I discovered much later) are fantastic people. Extremely down to earth and immensely talented. It was really inspiring to meet them both. Saunskruti was very helpful and prompt through out our stay.

We got 2 of the best rooms (one with a view of the lake and sunrise; the other with a view of the lake and sunset!). I later was told that each room was furnished uniquely with restored antique wood and artifacts created using them.

Eating Mrs Uttara Kher's breakfast is like having lunch in the morning. The spread was lip smacking and wholesome. I really appreciated her mindfulness, when she would store away a portion of food for children to eat later. Meals served later in the day were delicious too.

A seperate mention for the tea. It was something we missed terribly after returning.

The small walk through the fields get you to the lake adjoining the farm. Mr. Adwait was ever ready to accompany the guests for a quick swim. We missed the trek to Anjaneri as we arrived later that day.

All in all, a totally no fuss place where we could roll on the grass, where my 2 year old could just start digging anywhere he liked, play a game of foosball one moment and lay on the swing and star gaze another!

Thank you so much! Such a wonderful review. The bachha party was really the highlight of the Diwali weekend for us. Vishu is such an intelligent and well-brought-up child! Please feel free to drop him over whenever you need a babysitter :)

The secret ingredient in the chai if I'm not mistaken is lots of gavti chaha.

Hope to see you'll again. Lots of love, Saunskruti.

We are couple and are expecting a kid. So we were very vary of choosing a new place.

Utopia turned out to be one of the best experience possible. Not only were we pampered to core but we felt we were at a home away from home.

Let me get into specifics

1. Location and rooms- rustic huts with modern amenities overlooking an amazing lake which gives you a sense of privacy. But it is only a few minutes away from Sula and Soma vineyards. The rooms are made from eco-friendly material as well.

2. Food- Uttara aunty makes breakfast herself and the Akuri and almond cakes are too die for. We packed some for our way back as well. We requested dinner since we wanted to eat home cooked food. It was super yummy..you can order from nearby restaurants if you feel like as well. We din take that option though. We drove to York nearby for some desserts

3. Hospitality- this is a perfect home stay, you are treated as family members and get a chance to mingle with people staying there. It is not a place where people want to "party".

4. Others- Advait uncle takes you for treks nearby (though we couldn't go) but guests staying with us loved it. You can also go for a swim in the lake if you are up for it.

Overall an amazing experience. Will be back soon for sure.

And special thanks to Uttara aunty, Advait uncle and Saunskriti for making it memorable.

Such a lovely review Divesh. We were so glad we had the last room for you'll. Next time, when the baby is a little older, please do join us at Anjeneri as well! Good luck for the next year. Please do send us a photo of the baby!! Warmly, Saunskruti.

Utopia stands out as a beautifully designed farm stay comprising of 10 or something cottages, overlooking clean blue waters of the Godavari lake reserve. The place is painstakingly designed and made with a lot of love, keeping the look and feel to be very earthy and simple. The stunning view of the sunset, flocks of geese and flamingos sighted over the morning sunrise - were a pleasure to witness for our city-weary eyes. Our highlight from our stay here included - the whole ambience of the place (run efficiently by the entire family), the trek that Mr Advait took us on towards Anjeneri Hillock and Temple, meeting fellow travellers and making new friends. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for pristine earthiness and have simple demands.

Thank you so much Guys. Can't tell who has written the review because the names are hidden. We had such a wonderful time hosting you'll! Next time, we go to the next plateau on Anjineri! :) Please give your families our regards. Lots of love, Saunskruti.
