Paradise On Earth
Panthastha Prangan literal translation is “Traveller’s Courtyard” …..
Given my experience @ stay , to say the least , its more of a “Traveller’s Paradise” …..
Had checked into this resort with family on the 17th of Dec’2016 & checked out on the 18th
Now for our stay & experience of the same :
We had booked a semi-deluxe cottage(non a/c) given it was winter season & being surrounded by lush green forest away from the hustle bustle of city life , we did not feel the need for an a/c cottage. Howvever , if you feel generous & want an a/c accomodation , there are options available. ?
The room that we stayed in was very spacious & can easily accommodate 4 persons.
Being a cleanliness freak that I am ;) , one point that I would like to highlight @ room & washrooms is that , inspite of it its inception 2 years ago , the “hygiene & cleanliness” maintained has been of very high standards without any compromise of any sort. Rest assured , you shall not be disapppointed on that count.
Here , they serve “PURE VEG” food which I come to know that are made from home made species using natural flavours. No artificial coloring @ food or anything of that sort. You need to taste it & confirm for urself & at the end of it , am sure you shall be in agreement with me.
You shall get more details @ meal plan & package from their website.
Sight seeing :
If you are the adventurous kind , you can visit the “Dive Agar” beach which is at a distance of just 10 mins. drive from the resort.
Else , you can stay put @ resort & enjoy the calm & serene view of the mountains that it overlooks & lush greenery.
The “Shri Vardhan” beach is also not far & if 20-25 Kms is not asking for too much , you can visit that as well.
Last but not the least , the manager Mr Mahendra Patil is a very approachable person with a pleasing personality. He is always around to sort out issues (if u have any) & he always carries this smile on his face that makes things even simpler. He sure belongs to the “Smile Improves Your Face Value” Club . ?
As for the rest , people , if you just wanna disconnect from the mundane city life & get yourself refereshed , Panthastha Prangan shud be a TOP PRIORITY on your destination list.
Now enuf of reading , pack your bags , book an accomodation & get going!!! ?
PS . They have these new “AC Tents” as an alternative accomodation . Its beautifully made with ethnic décor along wth other facilities. If you wanna go for something different , this can be a wonderful option
