What Is It?
How Do I Get There?
Take a ferry from Gateway of India and get to Alibaug. From there, you simply have to take a taxi and Google Map your way to Mati Moksha.
What Is Unique About It?
The usual trips to Alibaug consist of just going to the beach, or staying in at the resort without really doing much. We suggest going here for combining your trip with the crafts. Anjali Amey is a potter who runs her own studio, sells her pots, and also takes classes. In her home, which also doubles up as a little bed and breakfast, she takes in visitors in the spare room, provided that there isn’t family already home.
The stay is for about INR 6,000 a night, and is a three-bed room which opens out to a garden. One requirement is that you ‘must love dogs’, as they’re part of the family. The pottery classes, if you wish to take them, are for INR 1,000 an hour. She takes classes for adults and children, and tells us that clay, by its nature is an extremely destressing tool to work with. Learn to make sculptures, pots, platters, masks, figures – the possibilities are endless.
