Natures Nest nestled in the western ghats is a must visit if you are a bird enthusiast or a nature lover. Located very near to the Bhagwan Mahavir Bird Sanctuary in Tambdi Surla, the place gives you ample opportunity to see and photograph a variety of birds endemic to the western ghats. Its a well maintained property good for a group as well as a family. Away from the hustle bustle of the city, you can relax, unwind and enjoy good food. No frills place with awesome hospitality and amazing people. The birding guides / naturalists - esp Ramesh Zarmekar who has good knowledge of the topography and the birds. Goes all out to ensure you get your moneys worth. Highly recommended. The property itself is host to a variety of birds such as the vernal hanging parrot, red whiskered bulbul, crimson backed sunbird, lotens sunbird, flame throated bulbul, white rumped shama etc..

This was my first trip to this location, though heard all good about it in many trip reports of India Nature watch. Fantastic place for birding. They have very good, knowledgeable naturalists for guidance. I had the privilege of having Mr. Omkar and Mr. Ramesh as guides and both were really fantastic. Their spotting skills are truly admirable.
The cottage Kaner where i stayed had many flowering trees around and i could spot many birds on them. Fantastic hosts and awesome choice for food. all the staff are very friendly, and though i had no transport of my own to move around, Mr. Ramesh and Mr. Omkar made sure that i had very good birding as per the plans.
All in all a memorable experience, and the best birding trip i had for a long long time.
Highly recommended for all.

Room Tip: All the cottages are strategically located to have good birding experience.

This resort is situated at the edge of a forest and provides an experience that is very different from the things that Goa is usually known for (beaches, parties, alcohol). The rooms are cottage style and very basic but spacious and clean. The resort is lush green and once can easily plan trips to the bird sanctuary or the zoo or the waterfalls. The service is very good and prompt and the place is a nature lover's paradise.

This January 2917, I visited Dandeli and Goa. After long time to Goa…There was long pending desire to visit Natures Nest and meet Pankaj Lad. This place is near to Mollem, as soon as you climb the Ghats down from Dandeli side. Approach to this place is easy. It was wonderful and pleasant atmosphere as soon as I entered the campus. You are greeted with Powder Puff plants at the Gate and Sunbirds, Vernal Hanging Parrots humming over the pink flowers! This excited all of us!. The staff came to immediate help and picked up my luggage and guided me towards my room. The rooms are big enough and clean, huge bathroom & toilet! Timely hot water runs for you. Sufficient plug points for recharge your laptops and camera batteries! Nice hanger stand for clothes. Natures Nest has wonderful dining facilities and with veg and non-veg dishes with strong Solkadi. Best thing is that they provide Rice Bhakari and Chapatis…and not to forget one sweet dish every time.
The place is full of birds…Woodpeckers, Crimson-backed Sunbirds and other sunbirds, Vernal Hanging Parrots, Shikra, Forest Wagtail, Fame-throated Bulbuls and many others! They have good bank of naturalists to take you to the nearby wildlife sanctuaries – Bondla and Mahavir. They know these jungles in and out and can guide you to the right place to find birds! Main attraction is Blue-eared Kingfisher and Trogons. They keep on collecting the information about fruiting tress and know their locations to save your time. We used to leave early morning to the forests with packed breakfast and drinks. Pankaj Lad has done extensive study in bird calls and can imitate many bird calls by himself. He and his partner Ramesh know the behavior of birds and can predict their movement well. They have good knowledge in the perspective of photography which help you to get good pics.
Right from morning to evening they have planned schedule for you so that you do not miss anything. They have bus, jeeps and SUVs to take you to the forests.
This will be good place for you if you are birder and photographer. At the same time this could be thrilling place for family on vacation too.

Room Tip: Select rooms near to the Powser Puff trees so that you have unlimited view of birds, and dining hall...

I visited the resort in Jan 2017 and the location is very very good. Food is also nice. The resort is suitable for the people who are interested in birding. Pankaj has very deep knowledge for birding. He makes sure guests are able to see/photograph all the rare bird species. Even family can have a nice time in the resort.

Room Tip: All rooms are great
