Roam amidst lush greenery and rustic roads and walk through old Konkani houses that preserve a grand tradition. Surround yourself by coconut, beetelenut, banana & spice plantation. Built on traditional lines with modern amenities, we are talking about a home away from home – The Maachli Malvani Resorts of Pune.
Located in the beautiful Parule Village in the Konkan area near Sawantwadi, the elegant cottages of Maachli are nestled on the historic lands of the Marathas. The cottages, traditionally known as “Maachli”, are built with natural materials and enable one to get up close and personal with nature as the paddy fields and spices grown are just a stone’s throw away from the doorstep. Thinking nature-porn? We too!
You could indulge in a truly exceptional dining experience at Pavhner, where ethnic food is cooked on a mud-stove called Chulha, and served upon banana leaves. The ingredients used are all grown in the village itself. You could even journey the outdoors and experience the array of recreations that are on offer and divide themselves into agro, nature, and village cultural tourism- with a fabulous potpourri of activities to dive into.
