Treehouse, Massages And A Lake View At This Amazing Resort In Bhandardara

What Is It?


Unwind, Explore And Just Relax...

We hit the road for Anandvan really early on a Sunday morning and reached there easily by 2pm {covering approx 170 kms}. The way to Bhandardara is surprisingly smooth with a spectacular view of the surrounding Western Ghats.The road trip is an experience in itself as we crossed blue lakes, paddy fields and farmers toiling away at their patches of land on our way. Though be warned, the last leg of the journey of approximately 20km can be super uncomfortable as the roads get exceptionally bad, especially leading up to the resort.

What's So Unique About It?


Why Should You Go?


What We Loved


#LBBTip: During the monsoon, the resort and the village lits up with its greenery even more, with the cascading waterfalls around the resort that jump up to life. So we’re saying, if you love the rain, maybe head there during the monsoon.

Anything Else?

Want a bonfire under the bright stars at night whilst sipping away on your whiskey on the rocks? They’ll set it up for you. In fact, if you truly want the local’s experience, we highly recommend to try out the local Maharashtrian food prepared by their go-to-local cook, Vithabai. One can enjoy freshly cooked piping hot food by her on the Oak lawns, just gazing out at the gorgeous stars.

The restaurant often has a massive buffet spread, and may we add all kudos to the Chef who cooks the food proper North-Indian style. It takes us back to the delicious Mughlai cuisine of Delhi, except we were in the remotest parts of Bhandardara.


So, We're Saying...

The resort is an all encompassing luxury holiday sans the expenses needed to afford one. We got back rejuvenated but by Monday had major withdrawal symptoms sitting on our desks. Did you see our cottage view? #TakeUsBack
