Activities

I feel one should just spend time relaxing within the property itself, but if you still insist I would suggest few places which you must visit.

Shreegaon Dam: 3.1 KM

Kolaba Fort: 18 KM. – (Locally known, as Alibaug cha Killa)

The average height of the fort walls is 25 feet. It has two main entrances, one on the seaside and the other towards Alibag. An interesting feature of this fort is that it has fresh water wells in its premises even though it is a seaside fort. In the monsoons, the fort can be reached by wading through waist-deep water at low tide. However, at high tide, boats must be used to reach it. The Siddhivinayak temple inside the fort was built by Raghoji Angre in 1759.

Kihim Beach: 18 KM

Major attraction in Kihim is its sandy beach. Though Kihim was once known as a “Bird Watchers’ Paradise”, very few exotic species can be still found in the areas having dense cover of trees. Variety of butterflies are also found here.

Tourist facilities here mainly consist of “Bed and Breakfast Schemes” run by the locals under the regulations of Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation, which acts as a governing body for Tourism throughout the State of Maharashtra. One can easily find average quality lodging and boarding facilities throughout the village, except for the month of December when advance bookings may be required. For restaurants, one has to go to a nearby locality known as Chondhi.

Other nearby attractions include the Kihim Pond, Kankeshwar Temple near Mapgaon and Karmarkar Museum in Sasawane.

Kihim is also a home to various temples including a rare Kalbhairav Temple. Alibag is located approximately 11 km south of Kihim.

It is located 9 km from Alibag and 114 km from Mumbai. Nagaon beach is popular mainly because of its cleanliness, water sport activities. The beach is around 3 km long. There are a few small hotels in Nagaon as the rest of the area is privately owned. Best option to stay here to stay in cottages owned by local people.

Mandwa is a pristine, un-explored, breath-taking port away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai.

Karmarkar Museum, Sasvane, Awas: 24 KM

Karmarkar’s sculptures are a pleasure to see. There are approximately 200 of them in this museum with Hira Kolin and Shankhdhwani being the most noted ones. Make it point to spend an hour or two here.

Murud-Janjira Fort: (68 kms from Resort)

Fort is situated on an oval-shaped rock off the Arabian Sea coast near the port town of Murud, 165km south of Mumbai. Janjira is considered one of the strongest marine forts in India. The fort is approached by sailboats from Rajapuri jetty. The main gate of the fort faces Rajapuri on the shore and can be seen only when one is quite close to it. It has a small postern gate towards the open sea for escape.
The fort has 19 rounded bastions, still intact. There are many canons of native and European make rusting on the bastions. Now in ruins, the fort in its heyday was a full-fledged living fort with all the necessary facilities, e.g., palaces, quarters for officers, mosque, a big fresh water tank, etc. On the outer wall flanking the main gate, there is a sculpture depicting a tiger-like beast clasping elephants in its claws. This sculpture, its meaning difficult to interpret, appears on many fort-gates of Maharashtra. The palace of the Nawabs of Janjira at Murud is still in good shape.
Originally the fort was a small wooden structure built by a koli chief in the late 15th century. It was captured by Pir Khan, a general of Nizamshah of Ahmednagar Later the fort was strengthened by Malik Ambar, the Abyssinian-origin Siddi regent of Ahmednagar kings. From then onward Siddis became independent, owing allegiance to Adilshah and the Mughals as dictated by the times.

But if you have decided to stay and relax take a walk to the seashore or just chill in the hammock.
