Take A Bae-cation: Book A Sea-Facing Room At This Resort Near Ganpatipule

    What Makes It Awesome

    A beach resort with a view to die for, and your Bae with you, feeling the cool evening breeze. Do we have your attention now? There's a resort called Nakshatra in Ganpatipule that caught our fancy and here's why we fell in love with it!

    What's To Love: The place may not be a party lover’s dream but it surely is for those who like to sit by the sea and read a book. All the rooms are beach-facing and we can almost imagine falling asleep to the sound of the waves. Some of the rooms also boast of a small garden and yes, pets are allowed provided you pay an extra charge.

    What's The Bummer: Despite it being pet-friendly, you can’t take your Great Dane on a hike here. They have a weight limit of 13 kgs. 

    Shell Out: The rooms start at INR 3,000 (expect to shell out more on weekends) and there’s plenty to see around-forts, ancient temples, palaces and beaches. We’re definitely considering this one for our next outing. 

    What's More: The resort is known for its peace and the fact that you can just sit in the balcony, stare at the sea and if it provokes you enough, go for a walk/run. We recommend this with your partner or your dog and if you’re an awesome lone ranger, the resort is perfect for a breather.


    Located near Ganpatipule, it is about 350 km from Mumbai and 320 km from Pune. It’ll take you about eight hours to reach and we say, it’s worth a fun road trip. You can hail a bus, take a train or just drive down. Oh and make sure you don’t leave home without some snacks, sunscreen and if you’re travelling with your pet, poop bags.
